British Moto3 rider Danny Kent may have got Moto3 pre-season testing wrapped up, but on Thursday he had to take another test: his Compulsory Basic Training to allow him to ride on British roads.

In between racing in the Moto3 series which kicks off in Qatar on April 8, Danny will use his 125 Duke to travel to the gym and to see friends but will have to keep the L plates on until he completes his full test later in the year.
Danny continued: “I wanted to get my CBT passed before the first round. I wasn’t nervous doing the training, but I don’t think I’ve ever ridden so slow and it took me a while to get used to a ‘road shift’ – I kept trying to pull away in second gear!”

The next time Danny visits Silverstone will be for the British MotoGP on June 17 – without L plates and a yellow bib.
