Full Licence

If you are new to bikes, we completely understand that all these letters and numbers can be confusing, so please, if you need us to talk you throught it, give us a call.

We won’t expect you to know your DAS from DVSA or the difference between a CBT and a CBR. We are happy to explain everything you want to know.

What different licences are there? More...

There are three main bike tests available depending on age and experience.

Category A This is a full power licence for any size of bike, sometimes called the DAS licence.

You need to be at least 24 years old, or have held an A2 licence for 2 years and have a valid CBT certificate and theory certificate.

Category A2This is a medium powered bike licence, allowing you to ride bikes up to 46.6bhp (25kw)

You need to be at least 19 years old and as above, have a valid CBT & theory certificate.

Category A1 – gives you a 125cc licence, maximum power of 14.6 bhp (11kw)

You need to be at least 17 years old and yes, a valid CBT & theory.

What does the test involve?

There are 2 practical tests to gain a full motorcycle licence. The tests are the same for all licences, it is the bike you take the test on that dictates the type of licence you get.

The ‘Module 1’ test takes place in an enclosed off road area at the Test Centre.

We are the only bike school locally with a fully enclosed DSA approved area large enough to provide realistic training for this test. We have heard stories of some new riders being given module 1 training on the road or in industrial estates.

 

The ‘Module 2’ test is an on-road test that lasts for around 40 minutes while the examiner follows you and gives directions over a radio. During this ride your route will take in different types of roads, road conditions, and may include set exercises such as a ‘hill start’ and an ‘angle start’.

 

Are you ready? We will get you there. Call us to begin your journey.

More information… More...

We spread out the training so there is a chance to modify the next lesson and make sure the right bike and resources are available when you need them.

2, 3, or 4 Day courses should be obsolete by now, but they are still out there. Why? Because it’s easy to flatter someone with a low price quote for a 2 day course and then instist on further training later, or worse still, send someone to test knowing they will fail.

So how much will it cost?

Try asking a car instructor how many lessons you will need before you begin.

Try asking a builder how much an extension will cost without him seeing plans.

We hate it when a quoted price is nothing like the final bill and we are sure you feel the same.

It’s not realistic to give you a quote here. Call us, and let us build a course for you.
