Direct Access

Full UK bike licence

This is the licence with no restriction on what size motorcycle you can ride. This is the most popular option for those aged twenty four and over as it allows you to ride any size of bike as soon as you pass.

Full UK unrestricted Motorcycle Licence


Taken on a manual motorcycle, it allows you to ride both manual bikes and automatics. Please note that you can only ride a large bike on the road before you pass your test when you are accompanied by an authorised Direct Access Instructor.

  • Restrictions on what you can ride: None
  • Minimum age: 24
  • Minimum test vehicle: Any motorcycle with a power output of more than 50kw .67 bhp. We use Yamaha MT07 700cc bikes
  • Allows you to: Carry passengers, discard your L plates and to ride on motorways.


This test consists of 2 Modules


From 31 December 2018:

  • the minimum engine power requirement for large motorcycles (category A) will increase from 40 Kilowatt (kW) to 50kW
  • a minimum kerb weight of 180kg will be introduced

On the day of the Module 1 test, candidates will be asked by the examiner to demonstrate their riding ability on either the left-hand or right-hand circuit. Please note that the standard off-road layout may change due to local conditions on the casual sites. Those candidates who have demonstrated riding skills of a dangerously incompetent level during Module 1 will not be permitted to take Module 2. Those candidates who have passed Module 1 will receive a Test Pass Certificate which they must bring with them when they take Module 2. The practical moped riding test (which does not include the high-speed requirements) will also be carried out in two modules. The obstacle avoidance and emergency braking exercises will be carried out in Module 1 at 30 km/h (approx. 19 mph).
