Full Bike Licence Courses

The Full Bike Licence Course (Direct Access) is available to those aged 17 years or older, but due to Government Legislation there are now age-restrictions which may limit what size motorbike you can ride! 

The New test explained

Process = CBT, Motorcycle theory test, Module 1, Module 2 

A1: At age 17/18 : You can take your test on a learner 125cc bike

Pass this and you can just ride a 125cc - nothing above! You now have to wait for 2 years or until you reach 19 years of age where you can either stay on just the 125cc bike or take training and the next stage of test (A2): 

A2: At age 19: You can take your test on a 400cc learner bike

Pass this and you can ride a bike up to 46.6 BHp. You can restrict any motorcycle to this power so long as the original manufacturer's declared output was less than 92 Bhp. Large bikes such as Honda CBR1000, Suzuki GSX1000, Triumph Sprint etc. are not allowed. Now wait a minimum of 2 years to qualify for the next test, or reach the right age bracket. You can now choose to stay on your restricted bike or take training and test in the next stage of test (A): 

A: At 24: You can take your test on a 600cc motorcycle

Pass this test and you can ride any bike, any size, any power.
