The Get-On is a taster session aimed at people who have never ridden before and are unsure whether motorcycling is for them.
It's an opportunity to start with a 50cc automatic to see whether balance and throttle control can be achieved safely.
The CBT course is designed and legislated specifically to be the 1st stage in learning to ride a motorcycle at any level. You must complete a CBT to enable you to ride a moped or motorcycle on the road if you have not already passed your motorcycle test. In order to complete the course, you MUST have both parts of your Driving Licence (card and counterpart).
This is 3 hours additional training after CBT, which is subsidised by the Derbyshire County Council. On this course you are able to build on the skills you have learnt from the CBT course, improve your confidence and experience whilst out on the road with a qualified instructor. It is highly recommended for 16yr olds to gain more road experience.
This course enables anybody from the age of 17 years and over to take motorcycle training and tests on a motorcycle between 120cc and 125cc, capable of reaching at least 55mph (90km/h) and have a power output not exceeding 14.6bhp (11kw). Once you have passed all the tests, you will be able to ride up to a 125cc motorcycle without L-Plates and can carry a pillion passenger. Your licence no longer auto upgrades after 2 years.
This course enables anybody from the age of 19 years and over to take motorcycle training and tests on a motorcycle of at least 395cc with an engine power of at least 33bhp but not exceeding 46.6bhp.
