To ride a scooter you need to be at least 16 years of age and preferably be able to ride a bicycle. To ride this type of vehicle one days training is required. It's not a test but is a way of introducing you to the road. On completing the course you will be issued with a 'Certificate of Completion of an Approved Training Course (DL196). You will be able to ride with 'L' plates without passengers and excluding motorways.
To ride a bike of less than 125cc very similar regulations apply to that of riding a scooter. The option open to those riding this type of motorcycle is that they can take the A2 or 'standard' motorcycle course. The bike needs to be of between 121cc and 125cc and capable of at least 62.5mph.
This category of license restricts the rider to operate machines of 33bhp, ride without L plates, carry passengers and ride on motorways. The restriction to full motorcycle entitlement is automatically removed after 2 years.
The A2 Standard courses are designed for people who have passed their CBT and wish to progress onto larger bikes, carry passengers and ride on motorways. A2 training is of particular interest to riders under 21 years of age who are not eligible for the Direct Access Scheme (DAS).
There are variations on the theme of the practical test - options include an automatic test and a 'scooter' test (restricting you to less than 125cc but lifting the other restrictions). The majority of customers do, however, choose to do the full test or the CBT. If you go the trouble of taking the one test it makes sense to invest in the whole thing rather than restricting yourself later.
To ride anything whatsoever then we suggest the Direct Access Scheme (DAS).
The Direct Access Scheme (DAS) is designed for riders over 21 years old, who wish to ride bikes of unlimited size and power. Training is initially conducted on 125cc bikes, and progresses to 500cc bikes that are used for the practical test.
Course lengths are determined by the individual's level of skill and competence - novice riders will naturally require more training than experienced riders! The number of days spent on training is advised by our instructors after a free assessment of your riding skill. As a rule of thumb an experienced rider will require 2-3 days whereas a beginner will require 5.
The courses supplied will include details of the theory tests and begin with an initial CBT.
