Learn to Ride Motorcycles or Scooters the Safe Way

Ride MotorcyclesThe world of motorcycles and scooters often seems to be on a completely different plane than the world of automobiles. Open trails, which are not accessible to automobiles calls out for exploration by motorcycle enthusiasts.

However, with the freedom that two wheels can provide, comes the need for an entirely different level of skills as well as different regulations and laws that must be learned. Laws governing motorcycles and scooters are strict, and anyone who drives one of these vehicles needs to make sure that they understand the applicable laws in addition to ensuring that they gain the necessary proficiency for the new skill set. Motoden offers single day riding courses in London to help you learn to ride. These courses are available every day of the week with costs that range from £130.00 up to £140.00; they are designed to teach you everything necessary to learn how to begin riding.

To start riding a scooter, you’ll need the following:

— A successful car test

• If your car test was after February 2013, you’ll not only be permitted to ride on a 49cc moped, but you’ll also be able to carry a passenger
• Your speed will be restricted to 30 mph
• L plates will not be required

Anyone who is 16 years old, has passed their CBT, and currently holds a provisional license can ride a 49cc motorcycle or scooter. However, they will not be allowed to ride on motorways or carry a passenger and they must have L plates displayed. They are also restricted to 30 mph or under.

A CBT or Compulsory Basic Training course is required for all new riders.

For individuals who would like to start riding a motorcycle, they’ll face different rules. For example, you will be required to have a provisional or UK driving license, and the CBT is mandatory. For anyone who is 17 or older, they will be permitted to ride a motorcycle or scooter that is up to 125cc; however, they are forbidden from riding on motorways, they must have L plates displayed, and they can’t carry passengers. This entitlement has a duration of two years.

If you’ve passed a car test since February 2013, you will be able to take a CBT course. You will be entitled to ride a restricted 49cc scooter or motorcycle. You will also be permitted to carry a passenger and you will not have to display L plates.

There are many rules and regulations that apply to riding motorcycles and scooters and some are very strict. So, with that caveat out of the way, you’ll still have 3 other elements that will be required before you’ll be qualified to ride a scooter or motorcycle without L plates or restrictions. These elements must be completed before your 2 year duration of CBT limit expires. These requirements include the following:

* A Motorcycle Theory Test
* The Module 1 Practical Test
* The Module 2 Practical Test
