Is motorcycle clothing provided?:
Motorcycle clothing is provided on the day if required, though you may wish to bring your own kit along.  We have a full range of kit available to purchase in our Honda showroom so please visit us in advance of your course so we can order in anything you wish to purchase specifically.

Where: Start and finish at our Salhouse Road premise in Norwich, Norfolk.

What to bring on the day

The most important thing to remember is your UK driving licence & national insurance number. Without this, you cannot complete the course and will not be issued with a certificate. If you have a European licence, you will need to exchange this for a UK licence to take the CBT. If you have any of your own kit you are welcome to bring it, but it must meet the necessary standards and be in good repair.

The CBT is a full day course, so please bring some lunch with you.  We provide free tea and coffee throughout the day.

I have just passed my full bike test thanks to the help of Stuart and everyone else at CJ Ball. Thank you so much, I have enjoyed it a lot and you have done a great job to get me through the test and have been very kind ( I have been rather a disaster). A wonderful, professional, caring business. I can’t recommend CJ Balls highly enough.”

Passed full bike licence with ease, all in one price which made budgeting easy. Instructor tailored training to you and made every part an enjoyable experience

From start to finish these guys are worthy of at least 5 stars! From an encouraging and fun taster session to an inspirational CBT and a fantastic Mod 1 & Mod 2 (Direct Access, Category A) I enjoyed every minute of my training. Every instructor I had was excellent and I deeply appreciated their uncanny ability to instil self-confidence and make every minute of serious learning fun. Being part of a dealership, every bike I rode was in great condition and very well maintained. The positive, down to earth, ‘just do it’ attitude from EVERYONE I met here makes it ALL possible. Excellent value for money. Thank you!

Big thanks to Stuart and the rest of the team for getting me through all the training and all the tests after a gap of 30 years of not riding a motorbike! Cheers.

I visited Cj Ball on wednesday just to get an idea about the CBT, I personally haven’t ridden a motorbike for 25 years! The service and advice that I received in the showroom was excellent, 20 minutes later I was booked on the course for the next morning! Without going into too much detail, the 2 instructors we were taken out with were so good at what they did that they made me relax and enjoy the experience! Furthermore, I passed! A huge thank you to Chris who explained everything to me in the showroom and a massive thank you to Colin who had the patience to get me through!I will certainly be back for the next part of my training as the service and experience of these guys is excellent!Great job, thanks!
