Motoden Shares Everything You Need To Know About Full Motorcycle Training

Opting to sign up for full motorcyle training entails a lot of careful consideration. You will definitely want to think about the length of the course, the different modules that are included, and how expensive it will ultimately be to get your bike license. Although many training facilities will charge you an excessive license fee ranging up to £800 and a inflexible, fast-track course, we at Motoden do it all differently. Our clients can complete their full motorcycle training using a “pay-as-you-go” payment model that allows them to continue enjoying stress-free lives rather than having to put everything on hold.

 

Our full motorcycle training program starts with CBT or Compulsory Basic Training, much like you will find at all other training facilities. Your registration fee will be £130 throughout the week, but the price will rise to £140 on any weekend day. This fee covers all that’s necessary for completing the training. Bear in mind that you will need to provide a full day’s worth of undivided attention for your CBT training. Following are few points that you should remember for your Compulsory Basic Training:

 

* You will have to know the basics of operating a motorcycle

* To complete Compulsory Basic Training, both UK license parts are required (your photo card and its paper counterpart)

* CBT is best completed on a geared bike (you’ll have the ability to ride either a geared or automatic back further down the road)

 

The next portion of full motorcycle training is to schedule a theory test at your local DSA office. You can visit www.dsa.gov.uk (the DSA website) to simplify the booking process. One very effective way to get ready for this exam is by looking for mock tests on the web. There is a large number of website offering free mock or practice tests. The more mock tests that you complete, the easier it will be to perform well when taking the official exam.

 

After you’ve completed CBT and the theory test, you will be able to book 2 full days of Motoden motorcycle training. The cost of this training will be £300. There will be three primary options available to you. The most sensible choice is the option best-suited to your future travel needs. Your three options in training are:

 

* Training For Your A1 License

– Allows you to operate an 125cc automatic scooter

– Must be at least 17 years of age

– Can only operate a 125cc scooter

– Can carry passengers

– “L plates” can be removed

 

* Training For Staged Access

– Allows you to ride a geared 125cc motorbike

– If the test is passed at the age of 17, you can move up to 400cc motorbikes at the age of 19 and can operate 600cc motorbikes by 21 years of age

– Limited to the test completed most recently

– Can carry passengers

– “L plates” can be removed

 

* Training For Direct Access

– You must be 24 years of age or older to complete Direct Access training

– Can directly take the 600cc test

– You will have the ability to own and operate any motorcycle of your choosing

 

After you’ve completed any of the above-mentioned options in training, you can talk to your trainer about taking the module 1 test. Having spend several days working with your trainer, this professional will have a clear understanding of your riding knowledge and skills.

 

You will need to pay £15 to take the module 1 test and this exam includes an off-road portion that has an emergency stop and multiple swerves. If you intend to use a smaller bike to complete your test, you can drive to the testing centre on your own. If using a larger bike for your test, however, you will have to ride in with your instructor. Once the module 1 test is complete you can decide whether you’re ready to move on to the second module of training or whether you think additional module 1 training is required. This process typically costs about £100 and takes a half a day to complete.

 

The cost of the module 2 test is £75 and this comes with a slight more “traditional” feel. You take your bike out on the open road while an examiner observes your operation and riding skills. An intercom will be used to tell you where you need to go and the entire tests spans about 40 minutes. Much like the module 1 exam, you will have to ride in with your trainer if planning to complete your test on a larger bike, but can certainly travel in on your own on a 125cc bike. The testing fee is the same as it is for the module 1 exam and the process will take a half a day.
