The entry age is 16 years old for mopeds and 17 years old for 125cc bikes. For bigger bikes however, it has been split into two categories where you progress to unlimited power after a period of probation and an additional test. You can start with bikes limited to 35kW (46.6bhp) at 19 years old, after 2 years probation and an additional test, you can achieve Full Category A entitlement.

If you are 24 and older the new rules don’t affect you – Direct Access entry age is now 24.

This website contains all the information you may need about the changes in the law. If you do find you have questions however, we have training experts available at the end of a phone.


Our instructors all have years of experience, and will mainly teach you on a 1-to-1 basis. This means you learn at your pace, suiting riders of all experience levels – from beginner, to those looking for a refresher.
