Class 6 - Motorcycle & Scooter Riders
The Compulsory Basic Handling Skills (CBHS) test is the first stage of the Class 6 licence, to ensure you can handle a motorcycle in controlled conditions away from traffic, before you can take the motorcycle theory test. We can provide a motorcycle for you to use for this test or you can use your own road-legal bike.
For more information on obtaining your motorcycle licence including an animation of the CBHS test, check our useful links pages!

I have designed a theory and practical course based on the UK Police motorcycle training course which helps riders to approach every hazard in a systematic way to ensure they are at correct speed, in the correct gear, while driving to the conditions - Subsidised course.
