The Run-1 of the LHC was very successful for single top physics in CMS. The main single top production mode, t-channel, is well established. The t-channel cross-section was measured with unprecedented precision and t-channel events have been used for the first time to perform measurement of SM properties, such as: |Vtb|, top quark polarization, or W-helicity fractions. The associated production with a W boson, tW, has a large cross section at the LHC and has been observed by CMS for the first time. Finally, the s-channel also has been studied and limits set
