What Is The A2 LicencePublished 15/05/2018What is the A2 Licence?
If you are looking to ride a bike larger than 125cc and are under 24 years of age, then you have to have an A2 licence.
The A2 Licence is the quickest and most cost-effective way for a young rider to progress to a full unrestricted motorcycle licence in the future. In order to obtain the licence, the following conditions must be met:
- Aged 19 or over
- Completed a CBT
- Passed a motorcycle theory test and hazard perception test
- Passed both MOD 1 and MOD 2 of the A2 training
A2 Motorcycle Training
MOD 1 training starts at our training centres in Highbury & Islington, and Tottenham & Wood Green, on day one and then moves onto the roads of North London. To help you pass this training and test first time, we practise on the testing route helping you to feel confident on the big day. The MOD 1 test assesses your low and high speed manoeuvres, and the MOD 2 is on public roads whilst in constant radio contact with an examiner.
We offer courses starting from three days depending entirely on experience. The A2 training will cost £500, plus the fee for the test.
You'll ne itching to get out on a bigger and better bike, but be careful, whilst you have an A2 licence; you are still restricted to certain weights and power. Your bike cannot be higher than 35kW, or higher than 47bhp. The power to weight ratio must be no more than 0.2kW or 0.26bhp per kilogram.
You can ride a powerful bike as long as it has been restricted , which you can do by yourself, by purchasing a restrictor kit online.
What are you waiting for?
There is a whole network of roads out there wanting to be ridden on, so get in touch about your A2 training and testing and you'll be on a bigger and better bike in no time.
