What do I need?

Prior to attending training for your full license you will need to have passed the motorcycle theory test and hold a valid CBT certificate.

Please call 0300 200 1122 to book your theory test at the location of your choice, or book on line at www.bookingsdirect.org.uk. In preparation for your theory test please take time to watch the video and check out the learning resources on our ‘Useful Information’ page.

If you don’t already have a valid CBT cetificate, or if your certificate has expired we can integrate this into your training with the Direct Access package.

Once you have passed the theory test and hold a valid CBT certificate your may start training for your full licence!

The Test – Module One & Module Two

The motorcycle practical test is in two parts. Despite recieving some bad reports we believe it makes for better, safer riders and if taught properly there is no reason why you should fail. We are proud to have a top class pass rate for BOTH parts of the test and are rightfully acknowledged for this by examiners at our local test centre. These tests are known as Module One and Module Two. You must pass Module One before you can go on to complete Module Two.

In brief, the Module One test is carried out on a large circuit at one of the local DSA test centres and involves a number of manoeuvres which test your ability to handle the motorcycle in different situations – such as the ‘U’ turn, figure of 8 and an avoidance exercise (“swerve and stop”). Once you have passed the Module One test you can then go on to the Module Two.

Module Two consists of around 40 minutes of road riding to test your ability to handle every day situations on the road.
