The price usually includes the CBT test, and use of a bike, takes abiut 5 hours tha takes in a 2 hour ride to make sure your competent, try marriots in birkenhead, or the bike shop on rake lane wallasey...

You really need to talk mto one of the training centres, couple been mentioned. First obvious question, how old will he, has he already got his license with provisional bike entitlement?

Its not s simple question, indeed, there is not A test... There is CBT (which is training, not a test), a theory test, a mod 1 practical, and a mod 2 practical. Confusing eh?

For further info have look under http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Motoring/LearnerAndNewDrivers/RidingMotorcyclesAndMopeds/index.htm

There is a list of criteria for bikes that can be used to take the test, not just being 125cc. In fact, I've heard that it would be impossible to pass your test on some bikes, even if you were the instructor, due to turning circle and ground clearance.
It's best to learn and take your CBT test and the actual bike test on the schools bike. But he can get plenty of practice on his own bike while still on L plates, before the bike test propper.

Good luck, and drive safely.

Just in case you don't know he will need to take his CBT before he can ride legally on the road on his own bike..

Don't expect much change from 500 quid for lessons and tests from not knowing how to ride to take you riding a big bike
