Novice Light A1 Licence Course

This course is suitable for a novice rider with no previous experience (Novice)

If you haven’t already taken the Theory Test, then the course will start with an hour to take this at a DVSA Theory Test Centre.

The first day will be the Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) course done on a geared 125cc motorcycle or scooter. This wants to be done about one week before the start of the other sessions. Should you need further training for your CBT, you will have time to complete it without interfering with the rest of your course. Often this is the hardest day of the course.

After the CBT there are two Roadrider Sessions; these are designed to consolidate the skills learned during the CBT and focus principally on road riding (with accurate machine controls).

The session day is the Mod 1 Training Session where you will go through all the training required for the Module 1 Motorcycle Test. This session will be in the training area. The session is spent covering the slow manoeuvres; slalom, figure of eight, U-turn, slow ride and pushing & parking. This is followed by the faster exercises: controlled stop, emergency stop and avoidance (swerve).

The fourth session is Mod 1 Test Session, which has the Module 1 Test but essentially is a road skills-based session The test takes about 15 minutes. Almost the entire session will be spent on the road in preparation for the Module 2 Test. However, there may be a small amount of time for extra Module 1 practice.

The fifth session is Mod 2 Training Session which is entirely based on the road and prepares you for the Module 2 Test. The final session is the Mod 2 Test Session and is normally done 3 working days after the Module 1 Test. Topics like the Show Me/Tell Me questions and the Independent Ride will be covered. The Module 2 test is usually taken half way through the final session with an hour warm up beforehand. This takes about 45 minutes – and once passed you will have a full licence to ride any motorcycle or scooter up to 125cc.
