Direct Access Training (Cat A Licence)

The Direct Access Scheme (DAS) allows riders aged twenty-four or over, or who have held an A2 Licence for two years to test on a large motorcycle, which then enables you to ride any motorcycle with no restrictions to power or engine size upon passing the test.

To be eligible for the DVSA riding Module 1 & 2 riding tests for the Category A Licence riders must be in possession of a CBT Certificate which is normally achieved as part of our Training Course & Theory Hazard Perception Pass Certificate.

With 2 years previous A2 licence experience riders can progress straight to the test without the need for a CBT or Theory certificate.

You must complete both Modules of the DVSA motorcycle test on a machine of at least 595cc & minimum 40Kw (54HP). In early 2019 the minimum power rating increases to 50Kw (67HP)

A2B Direct Access Training Courses

Our training courses are available seven days a week. If you prefer to run your training over weekends remember your test days will be weekdays.

A2B offer pre booked riding tests, both MOD 1 & 2 so once on board with us a client could complete within a few weeks or even less.

Students normally use one of our Yamaha XJ6 or Suzuki Gladius SFV 650motorbikes, because of our association with Triumph West Yorkshire we have the Triumph Street Scrambler available & participate Ducati Rider Training programme whichever bike you choose you are assured top quality training that will give you a riding standard & competence beyond the DSA normal Test Pass Level.

Occasionally clients may choose to use their own bikes, we have had L Plates on 1200cc Harley Davidsons, numerous Triumph Bonneville’s and Tigers. You must ensure your own bike is adequately insured for use in provisional Licence training with L plates.

Our pass rate is exceptional, you should pass your test first time, and we won’t take you until we both know you are ready, both technically and mentally!
