Direct Access Course London

Take your test on a big bike and ride anything you want

Direct Access Course LondonThe Direct Access Scheme (DAS) allows riders aged twenty-four or over to take their practical tests on a large motorcycle, allowing them upon passing the tests to ride any motorcycle without restrictions. You must complete CBT (which you can do as part of an intensive course), a motorcycle theory test and take your practical tests on a 600cc motorcycle.

Direct Access Courses

The Direct Access courses that we run are as listed below:

The two-and-a-half-day Direct Access course is for very experienced riders of manual bikes who have already completed CBT and are very near test standard. It is subject to a one-hour assessment lesson to assess suitability. The days are conducted on a 600cc bike to get you used to handling a bigger machine and include Module 1 and Module 2 training.

The Module 1 test takes place on the second day of your course, with the Module 2 test on day 2.5. To help you prepare for the Module 1 test, we have extensive off-road facilities laid out like a DVSA test centre. We also have a speed gun to aid testing.

For the Module 2 test, we conduct mock tests on you and take you around the prospective test routes beforehand. To undertake a two-and-a-half-day Direct Access course, you will need to be very competent on a bike with standard manual transmission (clutch and gears, with the gear change on the left foot). If you have not already done so, you would need to book and pass a theory test. Further details on the theory test are to be found on the motorcycle theory test page of our website.

People who are normally all right for this course have already completed CBT, ridden on the roads for at least two thousand miles recently and picked up very few faults in their riding style.

The three and a half day Direct Access course is for experienced riders of manual bikes who are not too far from test standard and is subject to a one-hour assessment lesson.

Day one is conducted on a 125cc machine (either CBT (if you do not already have one) or a day on the road).

Days two and three are conducted on road on 600cc bikes.

The Module 1 test takes place on the third day of your course, with the Module 2 test on day 3.5. To help you prepare for the Module 1 test, we have extensive off-road facilities laid out like a DVSA test centre. We also have a speed gun to aid testing. For the Module 2 test, we conduct mock tests on you and take you around the prospective test routes before hand. To undertake a three and a half day Direct Access course, you will need to be very competent on a bike with standard manual transmission (clutch and gears, with the gear change on the left foot).

If you have not already done so, you would need to book and pass a theory test. Further details on the theory test are to be found on the motorcycle theory test page of our website.

The four-and-a-half-day Direct Access course is suitable for the semi-experienced rider. Days one and two will be taken on a 125cc bike (day one - either CBT or a day on the road), whilst days three and four will take place on a 600cc bike.

The Module 1 test takes place on the fourth day of your course, with the Module 2 test on day 4.5. This course is not designed for an absolute beginner.

If you have not already done so, you would need to book and pass a theory test. Further details on the theory test are to be found on the motorcycle theory test page of our website.

To help you prepare for the Module 1 test, we have extensive off-road facilities laid out like a DVSA test centre. We also have a speed gun to aid testing.

For the Module 2 test, we conduct mock tests on you and take you around the prospective test routes beforehand.

To undertake a four-and-a-half-day Direct Access course, you will need to be quite competent on a bike with standard manual transmission (clutch and gears, with the gear change on the left foot).

The five-and-a-half-day Direct Access course is suitable for a novice rider. The first day will be your CBT, which we like you to take several days before the start of your last four and a half days (they do not have to be consecutive). This is so that should you need further training for CBT, you will have time to complete it without it interfering with the rest of your course.

On days one to three, you will be training on a 125cc bike followed by your last two and a half days on a 600cc bike.

The Module 1 test takes place on the fifth day of your course, with the Module 2 test on day 5.5. We do leave a gap between day 5 and day 5.5 just in case you are not through the Module 1 test first time.

To help you prepare for the Module 1 test, we have extensive off-road facilities laid out like a DVSA test centre. We also have a speed gun to aid testing.

For the Module 2 test, we conduct mock tests on you and take you around the prospective test routes beforehand. If you have not already done so, you would need to book and pass a theory test. Further details on the theory test are to be found on the motorcycle theory test page of our website.

Our Training Courses

Our training courses are flexible in approach and we run training courses seven days a week. You can run your course over weekends to fit it in around work, but your last day (test day) would need to be on a weekday. Alternatively, book some time off and train with us during the week. To discuss your specific requirements give us a call.

If you do not have your own motorcycle, do not worry. We have a fleet of well-maintained bikes for hire, including 125cc and 600cc machines.
