After passing the tests, you can discard your L plates, carry pillion passengers and ride on the motorway.

In order to ride a light (small)l motorcycle under the authority of this licence; you have to successfully complete your CBT course and been awarded your CBT certificate.. Secondly you must have passed your motorcycle theory and hazard perception test.

The test requirements for an A1 licence are the same as for an A2 or full category A licence. That is to say there is a MOD1 (slow control manoeuvres plus emergency stop and avoidance exercise); and a MOD2 test (approximately a 35 – 45 minute road ride).

Our minimal recommended length of course to prepare you for the two tests is 4 days (See below for basic course outline. More can be arranged if needed or advised. Some students will take 6 days to enable a slower and more relaxed learning pace ). It should be understood that the 4 day course is intensive. Students must be confident and competent in riding. This course is not designed to teach you how to ride; it is designed to develop your skills and competence to test level and beyond. I will provide you with all the process and guidance, but There is no substitute for road miles. Be prepared for the course mentally and physically. Ensure you have the time and energy to maximise the benefits to you. Students that receive the best results are those that are riding regularly or at least ride a geared bike regularly two weeks or more leading up to and during their course. Hire bikes are available if you do not have access to one of your own.
