DAS - Direct Access Scheme in Kent                                   

Direct Access Scheme This course is based from our offices in Ashford in Kent.  Ashford Map
Note: The rules, including the minimum age, for the DAS licence changed in January 2013 - click here to find out more!


A full bike licence entitling you to ride any size of machine is gained through this course. After completing your CBT with us your training continues on a 125cc bike and, once you are proficient, progresses onto a 600cc (or larger) motorcycle which is what you take your tests on. You must be 24 or over for this course.


Total Cost: £895 (For just £50 extra you could be learning on a Ducati! Ducati Rider Training.... find out more, click here!Find out more here.)

(This includes the CBT, Theory Test fee, Theory Test DVD-Rom, Practical Test fees, a Taster Session if you need it, bike hire, clothing hire, instruction, fuel, bike insurance etc, we even provide tea and coffee!)


(If you already have a current, valid CBT done elsewhere then we knock £100 off the DAS course price).


Location:  We run our DAS courses from Ashford in Kent. Ashford Map


Duration:  Normally run as a course over four consecutive days, but we can sometimes accommodate different requirements, such as a semi-intensive approach - give us a call to discuss what's best for you.

Instructor to Student ratios:  Always a maximum of 1:2 on the road.


Where to start?

If you've never ridden before then take advantage of one of our Taster Sessions (a 1 hour one-to-one session with a qualified instructor), it's included in the price!


You will also need to complete a CBT and pass a Motorcycle Theory Test, (these can be done in either order). The total price shown above includes the CBT and Theory Test (as well as a Theory Test DVD-Rom to help you practice for it).

(If you already have a current, valid CBT done elsewhere then we knock £100 off the course price).


What next?

The practical test is in two parts, Module 1 and Module 2. You have to complete them in order, (so you need to pass Module 1 first).


Module 1: This consists of a series of manoeuvres that are tested at a DSA Multi Purpose Test Site, we normally use Herne Bay or Gillingham.


See our Practical Test page for full details of the manoeuvres.


Motorcycle Test Module One Manoeuvres

Module 1 Training: This is normally run over 3 days, the 3rd day is Module 1 Test Day. The aim is to grow your skills first on a 125cc bike and then on a larger machine so that you are proficient on the road and ready to learn and practice the manoeuvres needed to pass the Module 1 test.




Module 2: This test is a 40 minute road ride, (without many set manoeuvres as most of these have already been tested), it does include an angle start (pulling away from behind a parked car) and a hill-start.

Road ride test

Module 2 Training: This is normally run over 2 days. The first day is to familiarise you with the test town, (normally Folkestone), and to refresh your riding skills. The second day is Module 2 Test Day, with a couple of hours pre-test training from us.



Often the Module 1 and Module 2 courses are taken consecutively, with some of the training overlapping so you can get it done in 4 consecutive days, typically Monday to Thursday.

Once you have passed Module 1 and Module 2 you have gained your full motorcycle licence!
