​This course is designed for riders who are new to biking and between 19 and 23 years of age.

You will be required to complete the Motorcycle Theory Test and a CBT course before you can start this course.


This course will help you prepare for the DVSA's two part Practical Motorcycle Test to obtain a Category A2 Medium Motorcycle Licence.

Motorcycles used for this course must have an engine capacity of at least 395cc with a power output between 20kW and 35kW.

Once you have passed the Practical Motorcycle Test on one of our training bikes you will  be able to ride any motorcycle of your choice not exceeding 35kW without L-plates on any public road including motorways.

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 free only on weekends or on certain days of the week.
