If you're taking your first step into the world of two wheels – you've come to the right place. Whether you're looking to transform your commutes or just keen to experience the thrills of being out on the roads, here at HBC Motorcycles, we can assist with the whole process to make it as simple as possible, to get you aboard either a 50cc or 125cc ride.
We sell both motorcycles and scooters from the Suzuki range which offer some of the best learner friendly rides available.
The first step is to apply for your UK Provisional Category A Licence, which is either included in your full car licence or as part of your provisional licence. If you don't already have this, you can apply for it here and once it arrives, you can then look into booking on to the relevant training!
Once your licence is here, the next step is to book your Compulsory Basic Training.
Your CBT will prepare you for the roads, equipping you with training in the five important areas listed below, which must be successfully completed before you are awarded your CBT Licence. Along with being familiar with the Highway Code, you will be required to complete your training at Driving Standards Agency (DSA) approved training school.
A: Basic Introduction and Eyesight Check
B: Practical On-Site Training
C: Practical On-Site Riding
D: On-Road Trainingx
E: On-Road Riding
On successful completion of your CBT, you will receive your Certificate of Completion or the DL196, which will be valid for 2 years from the pass date unless you go on to complete any further training.
This will allow you to move onto choosing your first motorcycle from our range of 50cc bikes if you're 16, or 125cc bikes if you're 17 years old!
Finally, it’s time to take your pick from our range of Suzuki 50cc and 125cc rides! Based in Nottingham, you’ve got immediate access to starter Suzuki Street and Sport bikes, along with their fantastic Scooters which will leave you spoilt for choice.
Prepare to cut corners through the urban landscape or chase the horizon with your new ride and discover a whole new level of power, nimbleness and comfort. Whatever your desired style of riding, we've got the perfect ride for you.
