I'm designing and building a mobile robot, however I have to find / design a circuit board that incorporates two motor outputs, and possibly 8-12 sensors. The circuit also has to be a PIC, to allow me to program the robot to carry out specific tasks autonomously.

I have 0% knowledge on circuitry design, so if anyone could lead me in the correct direction of how I would design something of this spec, or even show me what current circuit boards currently exist that fit my needs.

You don't say how large. This kit is kinda nice and there are parts of interest here too:

I have some little cars of about the same size, using the same motor technology, based on mica2 'sensor net' controllers from which have two way radios and a really torturous "tinyos" programming system:
But I haven't posted very much documentation...just a tad here:
