Training – moped, scooter and motorcycle
Whether you want to ride a moped, scooter or motorcycle, the first step in your journey will be a Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) course. The aim of the CBT course is to make sure you have the skills, knowledge and understanding to go out on the road, on your own. It is also designed to help you prepare for a full motorcycle test if you choose to take one.

Full Licenses and Training
The AM licence is what you need if you want to only ride a moped. You have to be at least 16 years old to take this test.
The A1, A2 and A licences are the motorcycle licenses. These differ depending on your age and the size of bike you are looking to ride. Click here for more information.
The tests that you take are the same for each type of motorcycle licence but the bike that you use will be different depending on the type of licence you would like. Because the tests are the same for each type of motorcycle licence the training will also be the same, however the training school is likely to train you on the same type of bike that you will be taking your test on.
