Full Motorcycle Licence Course


What do you learn?


Having the freedom to ride your motorcycle on the road is an exhilarating experience. However, before this can happen it’s a legal requirement to complete a Full Motorcycle Licence Course.


At ACE Motorcycle Training this process happens with four straight-forward steps.


Step 1: CBT
Step 2: Motorcycle Theory test
Step 3: Module 1 training and test
Step 4: Module 2 training and test

It doesn’t really matter which way round you do the CBT and Theory (though you may find it useful to do the CBT first) but both steps must be completed before training for the two-part test. You must pass both parts of your practical test within 2 years of taking the theory test to gain your full motorcycle licence.

As our training days are flexible to fit around your commitments we would strongly recommend that you complete each practical element in turn. This allows you to spread payments and gives you a more relaxed training process while allowing us to accurately assess you for the next stage.


The first stage is to successfully complete your CBT and then your Motorcycle Theory test. Following this, the final steps are split into two modules. Module 1 consists of a number of slow-speed exercises and a couple achieved at a higher speed in a tarmac off-road area. Module 2 is conducted entirely on the road and lasts 30-40 minutes to give you real-life experience before going alone.


All of our fees include the following:

• Training

• Use of Bike

• Insurance

• Fuel

• Test Fee

• Free Use of a Helmet

• Free Use of Safety Clothing

What do I need?

To successfully pass the riding tests; you must be able to demonstrate that you can ride safely in different road and traffic conditions and successfully show that you know The Highway Code by the way you ride during the test. Module 1 of your test must be passed before you can move on to Module 2.

It’s essential to bring along a clean and up-to-date full or provisional driving licence which includes the correct vehicle entitlements. As part of our fees, you’ll have access to the use of a bike, fuel and free use of helmet and safety clothing, as well as insurance, meanwhile training and test costs are all included as part of the package.

Once you have passed the motorcycle licence training and you’re confident that this is your direction of travel then it’s time to invest in your own motorcycle, helmet and protective clothing, whilst ensuring that you have all the right insurances in place.

Full Motorcycle Licence FAQs


What is a full motorcycle license?


Known as a Category A license in the UK, a full motorcycle licence allows individuals to ride a motorbike without any restrictions which means you can ride a motorcycle of any power output and engine size.


How long will it take to get the full license?


Depending on your circumstances will determine how much time it will take to obtain your full license. This is completed in four stages including completing compulsory basic training (CBT), passing a theory test and also passing both Module 1 and Module 2 practical riding tests. If you have a set time in mind for when you want to gain your full license it’s important to book in training courses, practice sessions and test dates as soon as possible to avoid disappointment if dates and slots are booked up in advance. It’s estimated that the complete process can take several months.


Is there an age limit for getting a full motorcycle license?


In the UK, drivers must be at least 24 years old to get an unrestricted Category A license. However there are opportunities for those younger than 24 to get the license such as completing a progressive access route, but with certain restrictions in place.


What’s involved in the theory test?


This mandatory step for obtaining your full license includes a theory test assessing your knowledge of safe riding practices, traffic laws and road signs.


What makes up the Module 1 and Module 2 tests?


Module 1 – An off-road assessment of your ability to carry out moves such as a controlled stop, emergency stop and figure of eight.


Module 2 – This part of the test takes place on public highways and looks at your riding skills in real-world traffic conditions whilst factoring in safe riding techniques, hazard awareness and observation.
