A1 Licence 17 years +
A1 training is £110/day on your own bike and £125/day if you use our bike, your test fee’s are £15.50 for module 1 and £75 for module 2.
How many days you take is up to you, some people only have 1 days training and manage to get through both A1 tests on their own bike. We would recommend just booking 1 day to begin with and see how you get on. A1 training cannot be booked online as yet so you would need to contact the office to book your training days.
We are now offering a GUARANTEED PASS ON YOUR MODULE 1 TEST WITH ALL OUR 3,4 and 5 DAY A2/DAS FULL LICENCE COURSES. This means that in the highly unlikely event that you should fail your MODULE 1 TEST with us then we will NOT CHARGE YOU to retake the MODULE 1 test.
NO CHARGE for BIKE HIRE!
NO CHARGE for EXTRA TRAINING!
NO CHARGE for the RE-TEST!
Since the introduction of our fleet of KTM DUKE 690 motorcycles, we have had so few customers fail their MODULE 1 TEST on their first attempt and we are so confident in both the excellent handling and great manoeuvrability of these machines along with our own high standard of tuition, that we are giving this Module 1 pass guarantee to our students!
For those aged 17+ or those that simply don’t want to ride anything bigger than a 125cc but just want to remove your L plates and carry pillions the A1 licence is for you.
You must complete a CBT, motorcycle theory test and take both Module 1 and Module 2 practical tests using a 125cc machine.
Once an A1 Licence has been gained, riders should be aware that the motorcycle restrictions are no longer removed after 2 years, unless you progress onto a higher category licence i.e. A2 or Direct Access, in which case you will need to take a motorcycle theory test before booking your A2 or Direct Access course…
A2 Licence 19 years +
How many days training you will need to take will depend on any previous experience you may have, we are more than happy to discuss this with you or we can assess you during your CBT course or a Pre-Course assessment.
We are able to offer training course’s from 1 day long to 6 days long, the price is calculated by how many days you book and which tests are booked. i.e. a 3day DAS course with both tests is 3x£125 + £15.50 + £75 = £465.50. Our price quotes are always the guaranteed total price you will pay, we will never ask you for more money to cover insurance waiver’s or insurance excess!!
We offer a range of full licence package course’s from 3 days to 5 days and these work out slightly cheaper than our daily rates, the prices for these are as follows. (You will need to have passed both your CBT and theory test to be able to attend your full licence course.)
3 Day Direct Access / A2 Course £465.50 Inc Bike Hire and Test Fee’s (For experienced riders)
4 Day Direct Access / A2 Course £585.00 Inc Bike Hire and Test Fee’s (For less experienced riders)
5 Day Direct Access / A2 Course £699.00 Inc Bike Hire and Test Fee’s (For those with little to no experience.)
Usually theses courses are booked on consecutive days but they can also be arranged to run over split days or a period of weeks if required.
The A2 Restricted licence allows riders aged 19 or over to ride a medium sized motorcycle as long as it is restricted to 46.6 bhp (35 kW) and has a power-to-weight ratio of not more than 0.2 kW per kg.
The bike mustn’t be derived from a vehicle more than twice its power (Machines with larger than 93 bhp will be unsuitable for restriction in this category). You must complete a CBT, a motorcycle theory test and take both practical tests, Module 1 and Module 2 on a minimum of 400cc..
Once an A2 Licence has been gained, riders should be aware that the motorcycle restrictions are no longer removed after 2 years, unless you progress onto a higher category licence such as Direct Access.
