VIPER Motorcycle Training

CBT - Compulsary Basic Training

The CBT is a legal requirement that you must take before you can begin riding on the road. A one day course getting you started riding your 50cc moped or 125 cc motorbike legally and safely. Once the course has been completed you are able to legally ride on the road using any bike or scooter upto 33bhp and you must display "L" plates front and rear of the bike. The CBT lasts for 2 years, after the 2 years if you haven't passed your full motorcycle test then you will have to take the CBT, Theory and Hazard perception test again. At VIPER we have a very high pass rate for all of our students, if you don't pass the CBT first time, don't worry we offer a second chance at the CBT completely free.
DAS - Direct Access

The DAS allows riders age 21 or over, or those who reach 21 before their two year restriction ends to go for their full motorcycle test on a 500cc for a full motorcycle licence. Once the riders pass the full motorcycle test they are able to ride any size engined motorycle. If you do not qualify for the DAS course then don't panic you can still take your motorcycle test but you would be restricted to a 33bhp motorcycle or scooter for 2 years. After the 2 years then you are able to ride any size engine motorcycle. At VIPER we cater all of our training sessions to your needs. If you work all day then we offer evening courses to your availability.


The current Government "L" driving test allows the candidate to make up to 16 minor (Riding) errors over a route often not exceeding 6 miles and taking less than 35 minutes to complete. The DIAmond Advanced Test will take over an hour and will encompass most types of road conditions. A maximum of six minor faults will be allowed. The DIAmond Advanced Riding Test is the first advanced test available to the general public which examines the Driving Standards Agencys recommended syllabus for riding in its entirety. The candidates must be able to demonstrate their skills and knowledge and show understanding of the system of riding. Also demonstrate a progressive Ride and a high degree of skill and competence. All the manoeuvres contained in the recommended syllabus may also be examined. We offer the diamond advanced levels 1-3 training courses, for those who have already passed their DAS and wish to fine tune and enhance their skills.


VIPER offer a refresher course, this course is to help you to build confidence in your riding abilities. It is not a test and you can take as many refresher courses as you like. This course is good for those riders that may not have riden for a while and have just got back into motorcycles or maybe you have passed your test but still a little nervous about the road then this course is perfect for you. VIPER offer this course at your availability, so what ever time suits you best, morning, afternoons or evenings we can help.

"I'd never been on a motorcycle before I did my CBT with VIPER and though a little nervous at first I soon got into it and after only one hour I couldn't believe I was riding the motorbike round the CBT site. The instructors were very patient and friendly and made the whole day throughly enjoyable. I liked it so much I went onto take further lessons for my full motorcycle test a few weeks later and passed first time with an excellent score.
VIPER made it easy for me and they were much better priced than any others. I'd recommend VIPER motorcycle training to everyone."
