Direct Access Scheme (DAS)
After completing your CBT and the Theory Test, the new two part practical tests may be taken on a motorcycle with a power output of at least 35kw. A pass allows you to ride any size of bike. All or part of the CBT course may be taken on either a learner bike or a large bike. You may practice for the practical test on bikes larger than the learner bike specification provided:
- You are accompanied at all times by an approved instructor on another bike and in radio contact.
- You wear fluorescent or reflective clothing and follow all other provisional licence restrictions.
Riders who reach the age of 21, while still within the 2-year period where they are restricted to maximum 25kw machines, but who wish to ride larger bikes need to pass a further test on a motorcycle of at least 35kw. They may practice on bikes over 25kw under the same practice conditions for Direct Access riders. You will revert to learner status while practicing (on a motorcycle greater than 25kW) although test failure will not affect your existing licence.
Chief Instructor Comment
In order to ride a larger machine we will train you on one of our 500cc motorcycles.
Each course is tailored to the individual in order for you to gain the best from our Instructors and yourself.
The training we offer is progressive and using our years of experience the learning will be hard work but at the same time fun. I do not believe in training you to ride around a test route.
After all once you have completed your test you will not be riding around a test route on your sunny day out.
At Maverick we will teach you on real rider roads, before preparing you for the test.
From this you will gain confidence, so that on completion of your practical test you are fully prepared to start your motorcycling career with us.
