Direct Access Scheme

The Direct Access Scheme (DAS) permits riders aged 24 or over to take a test on a large motorcycle, which upon successful completion allows them to ride any motorcycle without restrictions.

You may also do DAS if you are 21 and have held an A2 licence for two years.

You must complete a CBT, the motorcycle theory test before you can undertake practical instruction and the practical test.

DAS Licence Courses
The DAS Licence courses that we run are as follows
•    Staged course
•    3-day course (Experienced Riders) Tests on 4th day
•    5-day course (Novice Riders) Tests on 6th day

Staged Course
This is where training is taken in stages.
The CBT is the first day and at the end of the course your instructor would give you a plan for your training based on how you progressed on the CBT or any previous experience you may have. You can then take the Theory test and book further lessons as and when required. Usually training to Module 1 and on passing this, further training to Module 2.
Alternatively, if you already have a valid CBT certificate or an A2 licence, we would conduct either a first day of training, or a 1 hour assessment on the road and then give a plan for your training subsequent to that.
This is a safe option if you are unsure whether you should go for the 3 or 5 day course or if you already hold an A2 licence.
