It's time for your full licence...
Ready for the next step?
If it's time to get rid of the L-plates, step up to the bigger, more powerful motorcycles, hit the motorways or take a pillion, this is where you need to be.
You need to pass the DVSA Motorcycle Theory Test beforehand. The two practical tests are called Module 1 and Module 2.
Module 1 is an off-road assessment consisting of the following exercises:
- wheeling the motorcycle and using the stand
- riding a slalom and figure of 8
- a slow ride
- a U-turn
- cornering and a controlled stop
- cornering and an emergency stop
- cornering and hazard avoidance
Module 2 is a road-ride assessment normally taking around 40 minutes and includes:
- an eyesight check
- ‘show me, tell me’ vehicle safety questions
- road riding
- independent riding
We allocate one day for Module 1 training and 2 days for Module 2 training.
We currently have a fleet of Yamaha XJ6N ABS bikes at our disposal - a terrific 600cc 4-cylinder motorcycle which is perfect to learn on. They are all ABS equipped, which makes practicing the emergency stop exercise a lot safer, particularly when it's raining.
We also have a specially lowered XJ6 which caters for the shorter rider - please call for details.
Please see below for course categories and course lengths. Days do not need to run consecutively - we'll do our best to work around your availability.
Category 'A' licence
If you are over 24 years of age then you can get your category 'A' licence. This category holds no restrictions, allowing you to ride any bike. You do not need to get an 'A2' licence beforehand.
Category 'A2' licence
If you are over 19 years of age you can get your category 'A2' licence. This category restricts you to machines no more powerful than 35kW / 46.6bhp. The only stipulation to engine size is that the bike, in its standard guise, cannot be more powerful than 94bhp before being restricted down to 46.6bhp. You do not need to get an 'A1' licence beforehand. You can upgrade to an 'A' licence after two years without needing to do another theory test, or if you meet the minimum age requirements (24) and have a valid theory test certificate.
Category 'A1' licence
If you are over 17 years of age you can get your category 'A1' licence. This category restricts you to machines no bigger than 125cc with a power output not exceeding 14.6bhp. You can upgrade to an 'A2' licence after two years without needing to do another theory test, or if you meet the minimum age requirements (19) and have a valid theory test certificate.
