CBT Training From £99.50
Compulsory Basic Training is the starting point for all trainee motorcyclists and is normally a days training.
The first part of the CBT is conducted on an off road manoeuvring area where you will ride the machine until competent and have mastered the basic riding skills required. You will then ride the machine on the road for at least 2 hours. A CBT Pass will be only issued once the instructor is happy that the rider is riding to a safe standard. If this is not achieved in 1 day then a return free half day training will be required (however a charge to cover bike hire & instructor is still applicable) Once passed you will be allowed to ride a 50cc machine on 'L' plates if 16 years old, or a 125cc machine on 'L' plates if 17+ years old.
DAS Training From £99
After passing your CBT you will then undertake approximately 5 sessions on a larger motorbike (600cc) to bring you up to test standard.
This training is normally conducted in the area covering some of the possible test routes. During the final session you will undertake your practical test. Once you have passed this test you will be able to ride any size motorcycle straight away.
1. Large motorcycle any power, any size. Licence name = (A)
To get this licence you will need to be 24 years of age or older, or have been in possesion of an A2 licence for at least two years. We will take you through your CBT on a 125 and instruct you on the finer points needed to pass Module 1 and Module 2. A motorcycle theory test is needed for you to be able to sit the final tests but not needed for the training.
On passing - you can ride any motorcycle, any power, no restrictions.
2. Medium power motorcycle up to 46Bhp. Licence name = (A2)
The minimum age to train and pass is19 years of age or older. Again, you will need a motorcycle theory test for you to be able to sit the final tests but not needed for the training.
On passing - you can ride any motorcycle up to 46Bhp
You can buy many bikes that produce up to 46Bhp, such as the Honda NC700 . You can also restrict any motorcycle to 46Bhp, so long as the original power output was not over 92Bhp. Its really easy to get a bike restricted and a good motorcycle shop will be able to help.
There is no automatic upgrades of licence - if you wish to move up to a full (A) licence you will need to retake the module 1 and 2 tests on an unrestricted 600cc bike when you have reached 24 years of age or held the A2 licence for 2 years.
