The A2 (Standard) Motorcycle Test

The A2, or Standard Motorcycle Test is taken on a machine of at least 395cc and be between 25kW and 35kW engine power.

On completion of the A2 test, the rider will have a full motorcycle license and can take off their L Plates, carry a passenger and ride on the motorway. The rider however will be restricted for 2 years to riding a machine of no more than 35kW. After 2 years if you want to ride an unrestricted bike you will need to take the Mod 1 and 2 practical tests again on a machine of at least 595cc and have at least 40kW engine power.

The requirements to complete the A2 Standard Motorcycle License Course are;

  • 19 years of age or over
  • Hold a valid UK driving licence with provisional category A (motorcycle entitlement)
  • A valid CBT certificate
  • A valid theory test pass certificate (This should be obtained before the start of the course)

The length of course and price vary depending on riding experience, so we offer a range of options and packages which supplies as much training as required to reach test standard.
