Once you have successfully completed your CBT course, many people ask, “how do I get a full motorbike license?”. Full licence training, often referred to as direct access motorbike training, allows you to become licensed for the highest-powered motorbike you can ride for your age group.
Direct access motorcycle training enables you to train for and obtain the highest-level motorcycle licence for your age.
If you are 24 or over, you’ll be able to go straight to an ‘A’ licence and ride a higher-powered motorcycle, or you may choose to start on lower powered bikes with an A1 (light) license, or an A2 (restricted) license.
We carry out our direct access course on a maximum 2 students to 1 instructor ratio and we maintain radio contact with you when on the road.
We’ll keep you updated on your progress throughout the direct access motorcycle training course and perform all the training near the town or city that you intend to take the test in.
Motorcycle Licence Tests
When you complete your direct access motorbike training, you will be ready for your test. Each motorcycle licence test is basically the same. The only difference being the power of the motorbike you will ride throughout the practical testing period. Lower powered bikes (125cc) are used for AM and A1 level, while higher powered bikes (500cc-650cc) are used for A2 and A (full) motorcycle licence testing.
On-site testing, which is carried out away from all other traffic on a DVSA approved test site with safe tarmac riding conditions and on-road testing.
The second module of the test usually takes around 35 – 40 minutes and is on public roads covering a range of road and traffic conditions. A DVSA examiner will follow you for this period.
