yup, my OH is having to do his CBT to get a bike hes had a car license 10yrs :thumbsup:

yeah you definitely need to do a cbt, i decided to take bike lessons a couple of years ago, went through the cbt, then had to do a theory test, even though i've been driving a car for 17 years, had 12 lessons and passed first time:-D

Haven't been able to get out on the bike much lately, it won't stop raining! :x

Look on the back of your driving licence it will tell you what categories you have. I think that you have to do a cbt if you gained your licence after 1997 I think.

You now need to do a cbt unless it is included in your car licence. (look on the back for a little pic of a motorbike):thumbsup:

if you passed your driving test before feb 2001 you can ride upto a 50cc without a cbt
if you passed after you need a cbt regardless of the size
