If you have never ridden a motorbike a basic 1-hour lesson will get you riding and give you the necessary skills to be able to go forward and take your CBT (Compulsory Basic Training).
Contact us to find out more, these basic lessons can be taken on the morning of your CBT.
You will need to complete Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) if:
The CBT is made up of 5 elements:
Novice motorcyclists often need further training for this element and will be on the road for an extended period of time or be required to return on another day.
Your CBT certificate lasts for 2 years from the date of issue.
Our CBT Courses start at 9:30AM and typically finish around 4:00PM (no later than 5:30PM).
It is sometimes necessary for a CBT course to take longer if you are a novice motorcyclist, your safety and the safety of others is paramount.
You will need to bring your photo card driving licence. If you have the ‘old’ type licence a valid passport for identification must be produced. If you do not produce your licence you cannot take your CBT.
You will need to be wearing suitable clothing for the time of year. If you have your own motorcycle clothing, gloves and boots please bring them with you. If you don’t have motorcycle clothing, gloves and boots we can provide this for you. Please note you will not be allowed to train with us without wearing full motorcycle clothing, gloves and boots. Waterproofs are also available if required.
DMS provides a comprehensive motorbike education, ensuring you're safe on the road and ready for the test.
To obtain your motorbike license there are two practical tests that must be passed. They are:
Before you can take your practical tests you must first take and pass the Motorbike Theory Test. This can be booked online or you can call 0300 200 1122 .
You can start your training for the practical tests but will not be allowed to take module 1 or 2 tests until your theory test has been passed. You must also have a current CBT certificate which we can also train you for and provide.
For those taking their full licence training with us, we fully utilise today's modern technology giving our customers valuable feedback helping them through their DAS course. This is in the form of:

We also hire the module 1 test area for our customers to practice on prior to taking their module 1 test. All of our past customers agree that this is an invaluable experience that we provide to you again at no extra cost.
We can also help you with your Motorbike Theory Test. We have training DVD’s and books that are available for you free of charge and of course our instructors have a wealth of knowledge on this subject.
Our training doesn't stop when you've completed your CBT or your licence. Nor does our commitment to helping you make the most of your bike and our community of riders.
CBT Plus is an additional 3-hour motorbike training course that shows new riders how to handle the daily challenges they will face while out on the road.
