Don't panic nothing has changed yet the main parts of new system is a theory test before CBT, revoked CBT if you collect 6 points and learning time instead of test to upgrade.
Get done sharpish
Is anyone experiencing difficulty booking a theory test, my friend is trying to book his but only gets the option to book a taxi theory test.
He rang persons (the organisation who run the theory test) and they said there is a block on his license and needs an entitlement check from the DVLA which takes 5 days. This seems strange as he has never had points or convictions on his license.
He then emailed the DVLA and they said this wasn't the case, there was a glitch with the system and they instructed Pearson to call him and arrange a booking over the phone.
Pearson called back but said once again that they can't book the test until there has been an entitlement check and the glitch has been sorted.
WTF, this has been going on for 2 weeks now.

I had the exact same thing, I sent an email to [email protected], they rang me about booking a date over the phone. Then got an email from Pearson confirming the booking. Tell him to ring 0345 600 6700.
Sooo I goofed .. I done my cbt before the start of covid. Completely forgot about the expiry on it and during covid never got round to getting lessons and getting the test.
So anyone know a good motorcycle trainer mallusk/ newtownabbey area. Could do the cbt with again and take me through the test
Who did you do it with first time? Not exactly Mallusk but I recommend McCallen's. I failed my mod1 test back just before Christmas and I keep telling myself to finish what I started, just hate been examined by someone ticking boxes on a sheet..
@rednaxela it's well worth it, so stick at it.
I'm just clicking that your username is Alexander backwards too.
IV just got my CBT with go motorcycle training. based at blacks Road park and ride (between Dunmurry and Finaghy? on a Sunday, was a great seat up withh all gear provided if needs be.McCallens still a good place to get my CBT sorted? Any other options closer to Antrim/Belfast. Also, is there a provisional license specific to motorcycles or does my full car license entitle me to learn on a bike? then exchange when I pass my bike test? couldn't get a clear cut answer online.

Same as above - re. licence.
I was going to use go motorcycle training - but ended up using BMG Motorcycle Training outside Enniskillen (be down that way often) - Great setup.
Off road test booked for 2 weeks - shouldn't be an issue hopefully.
Get stuck in Venom - great craic.
Today I learnedCBT done, theory on Friday. CBT instructor took me on all the bike routes round Ballymena, spent 4 hours riding the routes..! few niggles to fix (kept forgetting to cancel the indicator) but looking good.
he pulled me over early on and was giving me a hard time for riding so slow being an ex-racer. Turns out I didn't realise I could ride the speed limits if I'm on the road with a qualified instructor
Indicator got me a few times also!! I got a little 125 to practice on, mainly as it popped up pretty cheap - Good for nipping around and getting some miles in but really unless you got one cheap (not easy) i wouldn't bother + sounds like your familiar with bikes.. i had zero experience before but flying after few lessons.
Haha, yes my first time on the road the instructor was asking me to wail on, felt like i was doing 90, but when i looked down it was 35!
