Training with us

Morgan Motorcycle Training started helping people get on two wheels back in 2012 and our fresh approach to training has helped many riders enjoy the freedom that motorcycling offers. From the beginning, we decided that we would run our training courses by the day, giving students the flexibility of paying for as many days as they actually need, and be able to fit them around home and work commitments.

Bike hire
You can use one of our modern, fully-maintained 50cc (AM), 125cc (A1), 500cc (A2) or 650cc (A) machines.

Protective clothing
We have helmets, gloves, jackets and waterproofs available on the day if required.

What can you ride?


Aged 16, you can ride a 50cc moped by completing the CBT. You will need to have L-plates on your moped and cannot carry passengers or use motorways. The CBT is valid for two years.

Aged 17 onwards, your can ride a 125cc motorcycle by completing the CBT or by having a current valid CBT certificate. You will need to have L-plates on your motorcycle and cannot carry passengers or use motorways.

If you want to remove your L-plates and get your full licence, then you will have to complete or have a valid CBT. Next, you will need to pass your Motorcycle Theory Test. After you have your CBT and theory completed, you will need to have some training in order to pass the practical tests known as Module 1 and Module 2.

Your age will determine the bike you can use for your training and practical tests and ultimately the licence you can get.

Aged 16 AM — 50cc moped.

Aged 17 A1 — 125cc light motorcycle.

Aged 19 A2 — a motorcycle not exceeding 35 kw (46.6 bhp). If you have held your A2 licence for two years you can upgrade to a full licence early at the age of 21 by taking the module 1 and 2 again.

Aged 24 A — any motorcycle.

Compulsory Basic Training (CBT)

The facts

If you want to ride a moped/scooter or learner motorcycle on the road you must complete a Compulsory Basic Training course (CBT) to validate your provisional licence.

It entitles you to ride on the road as a learner with L-plates (D-plates in Wales) but you mustn't carry a pillion passenger or go on a motorway.

CBT isn't a test and there's no exam: it's a course of training you're required to complete to a satisfactory level. Most will complete the CBT in one day however as far as we are concerned it takes as long as it takes and we will never rush or pressure you to finish in a day. We also do not charge any extra should you need longer.

What can you ride?

Aged 16: 50cc moped

Aged 17: up to a 125cc scooter or motorcycle

A CBT certificate on a moped is also valid for motorcycles once the rider has reached 17 years of age and has the necessary licence.

If you have a car licence...
If you obtained your full car licence before 1 February 2001 you are automatically entitled to ride a moped without L-plates (D-plates in Wales).

If you obtained your full car licence after 1 February 2001 you must first complete a CBT course and obtain a DL 196 certificate to validate your entitlement.

Motorcycle theory test

Before attempting the practical tests (MOD 1 & MOD 2) you'll need to take the DVSA motorcycle theory test, which you can book online at the DVSA website.

Practise the official driving theory test from the Driving Standards Agency here.

Practical module 1

The test is carried out on a DVSA-approved site. For this module you will need to demonstrate proficiency in various elements.

These comprise slow riding, u-turn, figure of eight, swerve/avoid procedure and controlled emergency stop.

You will be accompanied to the test centre in Taunton by a qualified trainer who will also use the journey to improve your riding in preparation for module 2.

Practical module 2

This consists of a ride that covers various road and traffic conditions. It lasts 35–40 minutes with the DVSA examiner following.

You will have to demonstrate a competent hill start, pull in and away from the kerb, and perform a free ride of around 10 minutes. For this, the examiner will direct you to follow the signs to a particular destination and will then follow in silence.

During the test you are permitted to commit up to 10 non-serious rider faults but none that are deemed to be dangerous.
