The training and testing for this entitlement are on a motorcycle of 120cc – 125cc, capable of reaching at least 100kph (62 mph) but not more than 14.6 bhp (11kw). Passing the practical test gets you a restricted Category A2 motorcycle licence, which lets you ride any motorcycle up to 33 bhp (25kw)*
You can carry a passenger and use the motorways, and don’t need L plates.
After 2 years your A2 licence becomes a full Category A licence and you can ride any size motorcycle, even if you are under 21.
The Practical Element
The practical part of the motorcycle test has changed slightly – this is due to European legislation since 27 April 2009.
It’s known as The Second European Driving Licence Directive (2DLD) and was put in place to make for safer riding.
It’s not a massive change, but it means you have to do the practical test in two stages module 1 and module 2.
This eliment of the test has had lots of media coverage over the last 18 months and many horror stories published national. Don’t panic, its really not that bad! The swerve manouver seems to be the target for this bad publicity but once you’ve been trained by our instructors you’ll be left thinking “What swerve manouver”.
This part is conducted off road at a Multi Purpose Test Centre (MPTC) and will cover the following parts:
• Getting your bike on and off the stand
• Controlling the bike when pushing it
• The slalom (riding through 5 cones in a row)
• The figure of eight (riding around two cones)
• Circuit rides
• Hazard avoidance
• Controlled stops
• The U–turn
• Control at low speed
• The emergency stop
The two nearest Mod 1 test stations are located at:

If you successfully get through your module 1 test its time for module 2. Module 2 is the practical road assessment, you will complete a pre–arranged road route, accompanied by your examiner. You’ll then be taken back to the test centre, where the examiner will give you your result – hopefully the good news that you’ve passed and now have a full motorcycle licence!
For module two you must produce your module one pass certificate, and all the documents that you had to present at the module one test. Module two is the on-road module and typically takes around 40 minutes.
This module includes the:
You’ll be asked to carry out:
The examiner will normally follow you on a motorcycle but sometimes a car, he or she will be in contact using a radio to give you directions.
At the end of module 2 your heart will be in your mouth awaiting your results. The examiner will give you the result and feedback from your ride. If you pass, the examiner will explain to you how to change your provisional licence into a full licence and its time to go bike shopping!
