Over the age of 24 (or having held an A2 licence for a period not less than 2 years) you can go straight to the unrestricted DAS (Direct Access Scheme)course. If you choose this DAS course it means that you can learn to ride and take tests on a larger powered motorcycle of at least 600cc (over 40kW). On passing your Module One and Module Two tests, you can ride a motorcycle of any size.
After completing your CBT and Theory Test it may be necessary for your initial training sessions to be conducted on a 125cc motorcycle before moving onto a larger machine. This is to ensure that all the techniques are in place and you can ride safely before progressing to a larger motorcycle.
Theory & Practical Test Information
Here are two quick links to the theory test online:
Typically, your motorcycle training will consist of off-road motorcycle manoeuvres, covering step by step guidance on all aspects of the Module One test criteria and on-road riding for the preparation of taking your Module Two test.

This motorcycle training is designed to enhance ability, build confidence and awareness. All of the training you receive touches on advanced riding techniques to make you a better and safer rider.
During your DAS on-road training we will negotiate as many different riding scenarios as possible to ensure you are more than capable of dealing with every eventaulity. These may include dealing with other traffic, town centre riding, dual carriageways and country lanes.
Please note: You can only ride a larger motorcycle as a learner if you are under the direct supervision of a DSA approved Direct Access Scheme Instructor and in radio contact.
