A1 125cc Motorcycle Test You must be a minimum of 17 years old or over, have already passed compulsory basic training, the D.S.A.motorcycle theory test and then must take both Modules 1 & 2 of your practical test on a motorcycle that qualifies for A1 entitlement. Module 1 will be carried out at a M.P.T.C (Multi Purpose Test Centre), once this has been passed you are then able to take the on road part (Module 2) this will then give you the A1 Motorcycle entitlement.

A1 Light Motorcycle Test This test must be taken on a 115cc - 125cc motorcycle of not more than 11kW ( 14.6 Bhp) and be capable of at least 55mph.
Once you have passed this test you are able to ride a lightweight motorcycle of up to 125cc, carry passengers and ride on motorways.
When you have held this entitlement for a minimum of two years (or age 19) you can then either upgrade to a standard A2 motorcycle licence by one of the following two options:

1/ Take another DSA test, Mod 1 and Mod 2. (you will NOT have to take CBT or theory test again)
2/ Do a 7 hour training upgrade course (In 2018 this will hopefully be carried out by us, but as yet no answers available from the DVSA)

We can arrange road rider courses to top up your skills if you feel it necessary. All of our on road training is a maximum of 2:1, other schools may offer 4:1 which may be cheaper, but will drastically reduce the quality & safety of the tuition.
If you are a complete beginner and have never ridden before and it is an A1 licence you require, we would suggest the following:

  1. One to One lesson this would be one of our New Rider Courses
  2. CBT, once we have seen you ride on a public road we can then recommend exactly how much training you require and also whether or not you could take both Module 1 and 2 on the same day.
  3. Motorcycle Theory Test (this can be done anytime before the rest of the training)
  4. total of 2 to 7 days on 125cc depending on ability and experience before going to test.

Some examples of how many hours (days) training that will be required to reach a test standard (inc NRC + CBT):
Very experienced, 14 - 21 Hours (2 - 3 Days)
Some experience, 28 - 35 Hours (4 - 5 Days)
Complete novice, 42 - 49 Hours (6 - 7 Days)
Approximate cost between £299 - £799 for everything
