Special offer running now for £69 valid until 28/02/2014

this is normal price here with your own bike and kit extra 10 pounds if not then again where I did mine they let 74 year old lady pass who fell off 4 times and refused to take the dual carriageway back and told her "your be fine just hug the pavement and avoid all main roads " so maybe not the best people to use

Great deal...Awesome photo!

When you don’t need to take CBT

If you passed your car driving test before 1 February 2001 you don’t need to take CBT to ride a moped.

I think CBT needs to be done every two years.... I might even consider doing it just to experience riding moped once at that price.
Can't guarantee that price in two years.

yep thats true but this is just another case of rip off britain, because pass your CBT test then your good to go for riding a bike on the roads,then if after 2 years you have not passed a test guess what your regarded as not safe anymore so you got to take it again

I think that we should all have refresher course for both bikers and car drivers. As many will end up adopting the bad habit of other motorists.

It could be part of the PassPlus scheme to help lower insurance also.

The thing is in 2 years a lot can change in regards to regulations and best practices.
Generally if someone hasn't passed their test in the two years they either haven't spent much time on the road or can't be bothered.
In both cases they aren't going to be following best practices and potentially missing basics things.

Remember the theory test expires after 2 years this is for the same reason, if after two years you haven't passed your test then you haven't put the effort/time in to maintain a safe presence on the road and will have forgotten things.

£50 (or even £70) every 2 years in the grand scheme of things is nothing when you consider the cost of roadtax, insurance, petrol and maintenance.

It is when you consider everyone already gets taxed to death for the privilege of owning a motor vehicle.
Road tax was abolished in 1937, it's now classed as Vehicle Excise Duty.
The MOT is another stealth tax dressed up as a Health & Safety exercise, in 1960 it used to be done every 10 years but then the government saw it as another way to increase revenue massively as cars became more popular.

I think this an inaccurate generalization.

Also a CBT is not a provisional license!
A provisional license means you haven't passed any practical test, and are in the process of doing your theory.

A CBT is the basic practical training, not a provisional.

Ok under what circumstance would it take someone over 2 years to pass the test?
With a single 2 hour lesson most weekends I passed my car test and theory in less then 3 months start to finish, including a re-scheduling of the test, with minimal starting experience. During the time I was learning I wasn't throwing myself into it completely or nor was I doing anything intensive.
Hell you can get the boot camps which will guarantee a pass in as little as 3 days learning.

I didn't ever say the CBT was a provisional...
As far I'm aware your required to have at least provisional before you can operate any road vehicle on public roads.
You can't get a CBT without a provisional same goes for the theory test.

if you have a full driving license and pass your cbt you do not have to retake again ever but after two year you will only be allowed to ride a 50cc moped. if you want to ride a 125cc you will need to retake your CBT

what a load of bs there are some people that do not want to take a test cos they are happy with just riding a 125,if you go by your thinking even a person who has passed a test either bike or car test should be made to take a theory test again after 2 years cos as you say, in 2 years a lot can change in regards to regulations and best practices

anyone who has got a full car license can jump on a 50cc bike without taking any test,my point is you can ride a bike after passing the cbt test but if after 2 years you have not passed a test they regard you as not being safe so you got to take another cbt test what a load of bu-- sh-- that is,but thats just my opinion

@ mmachine you'll find your wrong mate law changed if you passed you driving test after 1st of feb 2001 you need to take a cbt that will last for 2 years allowing you to ride up to 125cc after 2 years you can ride a 50cc only for the life of your driving license or retake the cbt to ride a 125cc
