Curious to learn more about this or any other course? Get in touch with our friendly administration team, they’ll be happy to help.


The Direct Access Scheme is a course that allows you to learn to ride on a larger bike without having to progress from A1, A2 to a Full category A Licence.  The bike you learn on will have to be at least a cubic capacity of 595cc or 40kw/53.6Bhp.  We use 650cc motorcycles for this course.  You have to be at least 24 to take a DAS course.  Once you have passed your tests on the larger bikes, above 595cc, then you are allowed to ride any big bike that you choose straight away.

We run our courses to be flexible and suitable  to your needs.


Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and learn something new? Welcome to 1st Castle, one of the leading riding schools in the south of England. Our goal is to give our students the skills, experience and confidence they need in order to become safe and successful riders. Our program is flexible and our instructors are all fully qualified and are amongst the best in their field.
