READY TO TAKE IT UP A GEAR?
We are pleased that you are considering our school to provide you with your training, just a few things first:
You must have a Valid UK Driving Licence (full or provisional car) which you can apply for here.
You will need to have completed a DSA Motorcycle Theory Test which you can apply for here.
Before beginning 'A' Class Course a CBT is required. This can be provided within the course at a discounted charge of £100 (usually £150).
While practising you must:
Be accompanied by a qualified approved trainer riding another motorbike and in radio contact with you.
Wear fluorescent or reflective safety clothing while you’re being supervised.
Follow the provisional licence restrictions & have 'L' plates fitted.
FOR RIDERS 24 AND ABOVE
You can get a full motorcycle licence using the Direct Access Scheme (DAS) if you are aged 24 or over or have held an A2 Licence for at least 2 years.
The category A licence is an unrestricted motorcycle licence that you obtain by taking a this course and test entitling you to ride any size of machine.
You must pass the motorcycle practical tests on a machine of at least 595 cc and at least 40 kW (53.6 bhp).
Once successfully completed will have a full bike licence which will allow to ride any motorcycle you choose.
FOR RIDER UNDER 24
A1 Full Licence
An A1 full licence is available for motorcycle riders from the age of 17 and above.
By law, motorcycle riders from the age group of 17 to 19 years of age are restricted to ride (motorcycle training and learning) on a learner legal machine with an engine size of a maximum 125 cc and the power output of the motorcycle must be no more than 11kW.
When you pass your A1 licence and gain your full A1 motorcycle licence, you can get rid of your learner plates, carry a passenger, be able to go to motorways, and practice safe riding on a 125cc motorcycle.
If you are aged between 19 and 24 years, you are restricted to ride a bike of a power output of no more than 35kW (47BhP).
You will need to pass your A2 licence practical tests for this. If you have passed your full A1 motorcycle licence tests, you will have to pass the practical test again, but not the Motorcycle Theory Test.
As an intermediate motorcycle licence, A2 licence bikes will have at least 395cc and a power output of between 25kW and 35kW.
Once you have completed your A2 Licence, you will have a full restricted motorcycle licence which means you can ride an intermediate motorcycle with no L plates, carry a passenger, be able to go to motorways.
