We provide full and comprehensive training for those wishing to gain their full motorcycle licence.

Once you have completed your CBT, your next step is to book a Conversion. This is a 3-hour session that will get you used to handling a bigger capacity motorcycle.

You will also need to book and pass your Motorcycle Theory Test, which you book via https://www.gov.uk/book-theory-test

You will need to have passed your Motorcycle Theory Test before commencing training for your Modules 1 & 2 Tests.

Module 1 Training - Practice manoeuvres in preparation for DVSA Module 1 Test.

Module 1 Test - You’ll take the Module 1 Test in a designated area at the DVSA Test Centre.

The test normally takes about 20 minutes and includes:

  • wheeling the moped or motorcycle and using the stand

  • riding a slalom and figure of 8

  • a slow ride

  • a U-turn

  • cornering and a controlled stop

  • cornering and an emergency stop

  • cornering and hazard avoidance

For the hazard avoidance and emergency stop exercises you must ride at a minimum speed of:

  • 19 mph on a moped

  • 31 mph on a motorcycle

Your Module 1 Test result

You’ll be told if you’ve passed Module 1 at the end of the test.

The examiner will make a note of:

  • dangerous faults - these involve actual danger to you, the examiner, the public or property

  • serious faults - these are potentially dangerous

  • riding faults - these are not potentially dangerous, but could become serious if you keep making the same mistake

You’ll pass module 1 if you make:

  • no serious or dangerous faults (sometimes called ‘majors’)

  • no more than 5 riding faults (sometimes called ‘minors’)

If you do not pass

You’ll have to book another Module 1 test and pay again. You have to choose a date at least 3 working days away.

Module 2 Training - Practice road riding skills in preparation for DVSA module 2 test.

Module 2 Test - You must pass Module 1 before you can take the Module 2 test.

You can book both modules at the same time, but if you do not pass Module 1 you must wait 3 working days before you can retake it.

The Module 2 test normally takes about 40 minutes and includes:

  • an eyesight check

  • ‘show me, tell me’ vehicle safety questions

  • road riding

  • independent riding

You must bring your Module 1 pass certificate to the Module 2 test, plus all the documents you had to bring to the Module 1 test.

Eyesight check

You’ll have to read a number plate from a distance of:

  • 20 metres for vehicles with a new-style number plate

  • 20.5 metres for vehicles with an old-style number plate

You’ll fail your riding test if you fail the eyesight check.

‘Show me, tell me’ questions

You’ll be asked 2 vehicle safety questions known as the ‘show me, tell me’ questions. These test that you know how to carry out basic safety checks.

Road riding

You’ll drive in various road and traffic conditions, but not on motorways.

 

You’ll be asked to carry out:

  • normal stops

  • an angle start (pulling out from behind a parked vehicle)

  • a hill start (where possible)

The examiner will give you directions using a radio. They’ll normally follow you on a motorcycle.

Driving test routes are not published, so you can not check them before your test.

Independent riding

You’ll have about 10 minutes of independent riding. This is designed to assess your ability to ride safely while making your own decisions.

You can ask the examiner to repeat the directions if you forget them - you will not fail the test if you go off the route. You can not use sat nav.

Your test result

You’ll be told if you’ve passed Module 2 at the end of the test.

The examiner will make a note of:

  • dangerous faults - these involve actual danger to you, the examiner, the public or property

  • serious faults - these are potentially dangerous

  • riding faults - these are not potentially dangerous, but could become serious if you keep making the same mistake

You’ll pass Module 2 if you make:

  • no serious or dangerous faults (sometimes called ‘majors’)

  • no more than 10 riding faults (sometimes called ‘minors’)

If you pass your test

The examiner will:

  • tell you what faults you made, if any

  • give you a pass certificate

  • ask you if you want your full licence to be sent to you automatically - give the examiner your provisional licence if you want to do this

You can start riding without L plates straight away when you’ve passed your test. You do not need to wait for your full licence to arrive.

If you do not pass

You have to book another Module 2 test and pay again. You have to choose a date at least 10 working days away.
