01 August 2020.

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has announced the launch of Ridefree - a free online training course that moped and motorcycle riders should complete before taking their CBT. We've tried it out and recommend it as a valuable learning tool that will better prepare you for your CBT, particularly for those new to the road. Find out more here at Ridefree


05 July 2020.

From 04 July we are able to offer CBT's for anyone wishing to book.

From 06 July we are able to book practical mod 1 and mod 2 tests to commence week 13 July 2020. Unfortunately at this point we have not been briefed on how we are supposed to book the practical tests and there is no information on the booking system.


We have set up an updating mailshot which we are sending out on a Monday. To be added to it please fill in our contact form ensuring you list age, course type and agree to be kept updated.

In particular please note the information about Highway Code knowledge:

Your trainer can stop your compulsory basic training course if your basic knowledge of The Highway Code and traffic signs isn’t good enough for you to ride safely.


And regarding what to wear. You should wear motorcycle boots or other sturdy footwear that supports and protects your ankles.


3CMT provide helmets, gloves and Hi Viz as standard. We have a selection of jackets should you not have something suitable but we do not provide footwear. If you are wearing inadequate footwear you will not be allowed to start your course.
