We provide the usual CBT, DAS and Progressive Access courses but we also provide post test tratining all the way up to and including advanced riding.
With all of our courses, unless otherwise arranged with an instructor, your day will start at 09:00 at our office, although we do ask that you please turn up 15 minutes early to take care of any admin, where we will take a few details and check a few things and then, dependant on which course you are taking your day, will finish at around 16:00 if not before.
All students are required to do a little preparation prior to engaging in one of our courses. This includes having a basic level of understanding of the Highway Code and Road Signs. More details can be found on the DVSA website or try the new RiderFree App from the DVSA.
* If you have any conditions that we may need to take into account during your training, please let us know either at the time of booking or as soon as possible during your course. We want to make you day as enjoyable and accessible as possible.
Compulsory Basic Training
What You Need
The CBT course is designed to take new riders from not having ever ridden a motorcycle before to a state where they will be safe out on the roads, riding for themselves
SO WHICH COURSE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Firstly anyone over the age of 16 can take a CBT and get riding but under 17s can only ride up to 50cc with L Plates.
If you are over 17 years of age, once you have completed your CBT, you can now ride up to 125cc motorcycles with L Plates and you now have the option of training for and taking the A1 category full licence tests which, once the Theory and Practical tests have been passed, entitles you to ride your 125cc machine without the L Plates, on the motorway and carry a pillion passenger.
Once you reach the age of 19, you now have the option of training for and taking the A2 category full licence tests which, once the Theory and Practical tests have been passed, entitles you to ride a larger machine (35 kW or 47bhp) without the L Plates, on the motorway and carry a pillion passenger.
Once you have had your A2 licence for 2 years or you reach the ripe old age of 24, you now have the option of training for and taking the A category full licence tests which, once the Theory and Practical tests have been passed, entitles you to ride a motorcycle of any size and power output without the L Plates, on the motorway and carry a pillion passenger.
If you are 24 or older when you come to us, you instantly have the option of training for and taking the A category full licence tests directly. This is know as DAS or Direct Access Scheme
If you took your CBT on an automatic machine and now you wish to achieve your full motorcycle licence on a geared bike, we provide a half day course called a Geared Conversion course this is to help you make the transition between riding auto and geared motorcycles prior to undertaking the full licence course. You could also take this course either if you would like to upgrade from a moped to 125cc motorcycle or if you would just like a refresher course or some guidance with what you have already done.
Whichever Full Licence course you are able or choose to take, the route to your licence will be the same. You will need to have taken and passed the Motorcycle Theory test and have a valid CBT certificate.
Your instructor will then prepare you for the Mod1 practical test first and then the Mod2 practical test once you have passed the Mod1.
Once you have passed the Theory, Mod1 Practical and Mod2 Practical tests you will have your full licence.
