This course will prepare you for the DVSA's two part Practical Motorcycle Test to obtain a Category AM Moped Licence.
Once you have passed the DVSA's two-part Practical Motorcycle Test on one of our training mopeds you will be able to ride any moped up to 50cc not exceeding 4kW without L-plates and you can carry a pillion passenger.
This course is normally conducted over a period of 2 to 5 days but this depends on your experience and ability. It can also be split up over a longer period of time where it is more convenient for you - for example if you are only free on weekends or on just certain days of the week.
