A Motorcycle Licence
AM, A1, A2, A are all motorcycle licences & require the same tests, they are just taken on, and allow you to ride, different sized bikes. The courses all cost the same.
To gain any motorcycle licence you must have already completed your CBT (Compulsory Basic Training) & passed your Theory Test. (Both valid 2 years)
The A License is the full unrestricted motorcycle license which you can take from either 21 (if held a valid A2 licence 2 years) or 24 years old
The test must be taken on a machine of at least 595cc & must produce a maximum power output of at least 40kw/50bhp.
Only certain bikes are considered suitable by the DVSA for training. Check with the DVSA before considering doing the training on your own bike. We would always recommend using one of our bikes.
