Compulsory Basic Training (CBT)

The CBT certificate validates your Provisional Licence Entitlement to ride motorcycles up to 125cc. You must still display ‘L’ plates, must not carry passengers and cannot use the Motorway at this stage but it forms the basis of good riding to build upon for the future.

This is your first step towards becoming a road user who is able to get the best from travel on today’s modern and busy roads.

Further information may be found at:

After completing the CBT and motorcycle theory test you are now able to proceed with more training and take your practical test.

There is a tiered test system depending on your age and the size of the bike you wish to ride.

If you are under 24, certain restrictions apply.

Licence A1 - Light Motorcycle

CBT in ActionAge 17 or over you can ride any motorcycle up to 125cc not exceeding 14.6bhp/11kw after passing a two part practical test.

Licence A2 - Medium Motorcycle

Age 19 or over you can ride any motorcycle not exceeding 46.6bhp/35kw after passing a two part practical test.

Licence A - Direct Access Scheme (DAS)

Age 24 or over you can ride any motorcycle after passing a two part practical test on a bike with a power output of at least 40kw / 53.6bhp.

If you are aged 21 or over, but under 24, you can only gain an unrestricted A licence by having held an A2 motorcycle licence for 2 years and then passing another practical test on a suitable motorcycle.

After completing your CBT we will mutually agree a training course to best suit your ability. I understand that it is easy for me to spend your money for you but I can assure you that an honest appraisal will be made in order to make the training course as cost effective for you as possible, within the pricing scale. Once you pass your test on one of our big bikes you will have a full motorcycle licence allowing you to ride a bike of any size without restriction.

Training is provided 7 days a week and all courses are tailored to your personal requirements and time scales. All DSA tests are pre booked by us up to 10 weeks ahead so we can guarantee test time slots to suit you.


So why wait? Give us a call! Its your time to join us in Raising the Standard and your route to your two wheeled dream starts here........

Customer comments

I went with Phoenix after having a poor experience with a different training school. This left me with minimal riding skills, with evenless confidence but with a considerably lighter wallet! !  I strongly doubted that I would ever pass.

Clive's approach is methodical and considered. He is tenacious and jovial. He is an excellent communicator with a real passion for his role. He really does want you to pass and he will get the best out of you.

These attributes, coupled with his infectious personality, gave me both the skills and confidence not only to pass all my motorcycle tests but to become a better, safer and more confident rider.  Many, many thanks Clive and Emma. Your training has helped me to achieve a real milestone in my life.

Just wanted to say a big thank to both Clive and Emma for both the excellent training and support (and brews) I received.

I passed both my mod 1 & mod 2 tests first time. Great bikes, great training ground, great training and most of all great people. I would recommend Phoenix to anyone. Thanks again!
