We are offering a free compulsory basic training (CBT) session with Bikewize, a local provider, for people who live, work or study in Merton. You must have a current provisional or full UK driving licence.

CBT is a course you usually have to take before you ride a moped or motorcycle on the road. The training makes sure you can ride safely on your own while you practise for your full moped or motorcycle tests.

About the training

You’ll get a certificate when you successfully complete the course. CBT isn't a test that you pass or fail.

After you've completed CBT you can ride a:

  • moped if you're 16 or over
  • motorcycle up to 125cc and with a power output of up to 11kW if you're 17 or over.

You must use L plates.

You must pass your full moped or motorcycle test within 2 years, or you have to either take CBT again or stop riding.

You can be fined up to £1,000 and get up to 6 penalty points for riding without a valid CBT certificate.

The session usually lasts a full day and there are 5 parts to the course:

  • introduction and eyesight check
  • on-site training
  • on-site riding
  • on-road training
  • on-road riding.
