Full License Training
ADT Motorcycle Training offers training
course for all categories of motorcycle license, including direct access, restricted licenses, and further/advanced training.
Most of our training is conducted in set courses of 4, 5 or 6 days, with tests on the final day(s). Individual lessons
are also available for those who wish to take things a little slower, please contact us for more info on these lessons. Please
make sure you have passed, or booked your motorcycle theory test before booking your full license course with ADT (a theory
test is not required for CBT).
Since January 2013 there are 2 main types of motorcycle license:
Category A2: Restricted Motorcycle License (Restricted Access)
This license is available for
anybody 19 years of age, or over. In order to obtain this license with ADT, you will take your test on one of our restricted
(47bhp) machines. Providing you pass the test at the end of the course you will gain a license which will allow you to
ride any motorcycle up to a maximum of 46.6 bhp. There are many models of bikes which fall under this power limit, and many
bikes which do not may be restricted to this power by a motorcycle dealer. For advice on which bikes you can ride and where
to restrict them, speak to our knowledgeable team. Click here to contact us.
Category A: Unrestricted Motorcycle License (Direct Access)
is for anybody 24 or over. It is also available to those who have held an A2 license for at least 2 years. In order to gain
this license with ADT, you will take your tests on a 650cc machine. Providing you pass the test at the end of the course,
you will then be given a license which is unrestricted, and allows you to ride any size machine. Depending on the length of
your course, you will begin your course on either a 125cc machine, or a 500cc, and will progress onto a 650cc machine when
your instructor decides you're ready.
There are some other categories of license,
see the notes at the bottom of the page.
Our course options are as follows:
The 4-day course is our most popular option. This course is designed for those riders who already have a
reasonable amount of experience in riding a motorcycle with gears. An example of a 4-day course candidate would be somebody
who has previously completed a CBT, and has been riding a 125 regularly for some time. This course would also suit somebody
who has some considerable off-road experience, especially on bigger bikes.
The 5-day course is suited to somebody with only basic experience in riding a geared motorcycle. This course would be recommended
to somebody who has only recently completed a CBT. If you have had successful rides on a friend's geared bike, or
ridden many years ago, this course may suit you also.
The 6-day course
is designed for those who are completely new to motorcycling. Starting with a CBT on a 125, the course will progress onto
a 500cc motorcycle when your instructor feels you are ready, and then onto a 650 respectively (where relevant).
Why choose ADT for your course?
ADT have been conducting training for tests for
25 years, our experience has ensured a continually high pass rate. We will teach you to ride and use the road to a high standard,
not just to pass your test. Unlike other schools we will teach you how to look at any given situation and decide
how best to deal with it, rather
than riding uniformly and treating every junction and hazard in the same way.
courses always include:
- Practical test fees
- CBT Training (where necessary)
- Motorcycle hire
- Equipment hire
to our exclusive module 1 practice site
There are no hidden charges, we will not charge you an insurance excess
if you have any problems. We will not charge extra for petrol or for bike hire.
Other categories of license are
AM (Moped license)
This test category can be taken by anybody aged 16 or
over. You will take your tests on a moped (50cc). Providing you pass, you will be given a license which will allow you to
ride any vehicle up to 50cc, providing it has a maximum speed of 28mph. This is our least popular course, as a CBT will allow
you to ride a vehicle up to 50cc, and up to 32mph. An AM license however will allow you to ride a moped without L-plates,
and will allow you to take a passenger.
A1 (125 License)
This test can be taken by
anybody aged 17 or over. You will take your tests on a 125cc machine. Providing you pass, you will then be given a license
which will allow you only to ride up to 125cc with a maximum power of 14.6bhp. Although this license doesn't allow you
to ride anything bigger than a CBT will, it does last for the life of your license, you may use motorways, ride without L-plates,
and take a passenger.
All of the categories of full licenses detailed
on this page can be taken on automatic bikes. If you pass your tests on an automatic machine, you will be resticted to an
automatic machine until you take any further tests. This restriction is in conjunction with any other restrictions placed
on you license category.
