Default Bikers out there !!!!!!!!!

Do you need to do the CBT test for a bike if you hold a full driving license and what size of restricted bike can you ride ?

yes you do need to do cbt and a theory test too.
size of bike depends on test done if over 21 you can do direct access will allow you to ride anything if under 21 restricted to 33bhp this was how it was but they might of changed it now as it was several years ago i did mine..

From doing the research myself, as I'm looking to do it as well, you need to do cbt and the theory for it. And like rogersimons said, its restricted on age depending on cc. I could ride any bike, but supposedly its best to start with a 125cc and then work up. Just like a learner would start in a 1.1 or similar.

The website states:

Quote:
If you passed your car driving test on or after 1 February 2001, you must complete a CBT course to confirm your full moped rights.

If you passed your car driving test before 1 February 2001 you don't need to complete a CBT course to ride a moped. However, the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) recommends that you do.

But I would strongly recommend taking one. Failure is almost impossible (if you do fail then it's probably a good thing you're not on a bike!) and you learn some very useful skills and knowledge.

You don't need to take a theory test.

You will need to put on L plates.

You can ride upto a 125CC. My missus drives something called a suzuki burgman 125. It's a hell of a big scooter and will easily do 60-70mph.

martin go to the ni direct.gov/ni website. my nephew did his motorcycle test last summer and he did not have to do a cbt in N.I because he had a car licence.once you pass your test you are restricted to 33 bhp for 2 years but you can buy a 33hp restricter kit for almost any bike eg honda cbr600. all you do is give the paper work that comes with the kit to the insurance company if they ask for it.plenty of friends riding full power bikes just after passing thier test. rules in N.I are not the same as mainland uk.
