I have just passed my Com­pul­sory Ba­sic Train­ing on a twist-and-go scooter, but I am not sure whether this cov­ers me to ride a geared bike? Paul, Manch­ester

An­swered by Si­mon Rick­man, the Right Way Mo­tor­cy­cle Train­ing A CBT pass on an au­to­matic scooter ‘qual­i­fies’ you to start rid­ing a geared bike on a pro­vi­sional li­cence at the mo­ment.

This is the one part of the mo­tor­cy­cle li­cence process that most in­struc­tors think needs tight­en­ing up. It’s a reg­u­lar topic be­tween us all at work­shops and the DVSA are aware of the sit­u­a­tion.

A lot of us think the rest of the bike test cur­ricu­lum is al­ready too hard, so I’d look for some give-and-take by Gov­ern­ment; tight­en­ing up CBT and go­ing eas­ier on some of the Mod­ule 1 skills you have to ac­quire.
