If you want to obtain a full license straight away you need to undertake a course of training. You still need a CBT.
Only specially qualified instructors working within an approved scheme may conduct the training. Ace instructors conform to the rules issued by The driving standards agency.
At Ace communication with students is maintained throughout.
As from April 2009 this has changed to a two modular test.
This consists of ten set excercise some at slow speed and at least two at a minimun speed of 50kpm, all this can be practiced at one of our dedicated private sites using our speed guns and equipment, this has enabled us to already gain one of the highest pass rates nationally.
This consists of approximately 30 minutes on road riding in various traffic conditions I.E. round town, countryside and dual carridge way, both module tests are conducted by the DSA at one of two multi purpose test centres in the north east.
From January 2013 the licencing law has changed to a stepped system, below is a brief outline of the changes,
A1 Licence At 17 to 19 years old you do all training and tests on a 125cc motorcycle, on completion of the test you are then restricted to a 125cc for two years and will have to take further tests to go onto a larger bike.
A2 Licence At 19 to 21 years old you do all training and tests on a motorcycle of at least 395cc and between 25kw to 35kw (33 to 46.6 bhp) on completion of the tests you are restricted to a bike of between the stated kw/bhp for two years and will then have to take further tests to ride a bike with unrestricted power.
A Licence At 21 to 23 years old if you have held an A2 licence for at least two years you can take further training and tests on a larger motorcycle of at least 595cc (40kw) and on completion can ride any size of bike.
A Licence At 24 years or older you can do all your training and tests on a motorcycle of at least 595cc (40kw) and on completion can ride any size of bike.

A good idea for complete beginners is to do CBT and thereby get an accurate assessment of their training needs before committing themselves to paying for any further training.
