At a minimum age of 17 years old, or if you simply do not want to ride a larger capacity motorcycle, the Light Licence – 125cc is the way to go.
You will have very similar training to those on a DAS course, but your training and test will be on a 125cc manual motorcycle. (Scooter tests are also available – please telephone for details).

Once you have passed your test you can ride any motorcycle up to 125cc and
a maximum power of 11 kW without L-plates.  You can also carry a pillion
and even travel on a motorway.


125aYou must complete CBT (which you can do as part of an intensive course), a motorcycle theory test and finally take both parts of the practical test on a 125cc motorcycle.

The Complete Bike Training Light Licence Courses are flexible and run 7
days a week.  You can run your Light Licence course over weekends to fit
in around work or choose to train with us during the week.

All our lessons are either half a day or a full day’s training – the
choice is yours.


At Complete Bike Training we have a great first time pass rate for both modules 1 and 2 of the test.  One of the main reasons this is higher than most schools is because we believe in giving our students all the training necessary (on and off road) to bring you up to Module 2 standard BEFORE you take Module 1.  Module 1 of the test requires a fair amount of confident machine handling and we believe it is wrong to expect you to take Module 1 until you are at the standard to easily pass Module 2.  This does work as our number of first time passes proves!

A typical Light Licence Course will cover the following:

You will become proficient in pulling away into traffic, U-turns,
roundabouts, junctions, road positioning, hazard awareness, observation, emergency stop, dual carriageways, overtaking safely, making progress, hill starts and gradients and counter steering.


125bAs your course develops we will be polishing up on all your new skills and
adding more detail to your ride. Our intention is to properly prepare you
to ride your motorcycle after test day – not just concentrating on a minimum standard pass (a practice adapted by some training schools).
Riding well is achieved by practice, together with confidence, forward planning, anticipation and good observation.  Our course will give you all this and more

Towards the end of your few days with us, we will concentrate on giving you on and off road practice of the required manoeuvres of the Module 1 Test.

These will include looking at pushing the bike both forward and backward, slalom and figure of eight (remember your CBT?), swerve avoidance and controlled stopping, the U-turn, slow riding and the emergency stop.

Test Day.  You will be accompanied to the local test centre for your
Module 1 Test in the morning as part of your training.  This time is for a final polish and to get rid of any nerves.

Once you have passed your Module 1, you’ll have a final half day’s
training and your Module 2 test, usually in the afternoon.  This is time for final preparation to get you ready for your on-road test.  Relax, concentrate and enjoy the experience – you have been trained well.

Once you have passed your test, do not forget that we have a club for regular meetings and ride outs.

Well done!
