DAS (Direct Access Scheme)

If the trainee is 17-19 years of age training will be carried out on a 125cc motorcycle. On passing all parts of the test, the trainee will be restricted to a 125cc motorcycle, (A1 licence) and can elect to sit a further test at age 19 to move up to A2 licence.

If the trainee is 19-21 years, they will train on a motorbike of 25-35kw, (in our case, a restricted ER5) and, on passing all parts of the test will be able to ride a bike of 35kw (47bhp) (A2 licence). After 2 years, they can elect to sit a further test to gain their full (A) licence.

If the trainee is aged 21-24, and has not passed and held their A2 licence for 2 years, they will train and sit their A2 licence as above, which they can then upgrade to category A after 2 years, or on reaching age 24.
