Motorcycle Direct Access Test and Training

The Direct Access Training

At Riverview Motorcycle Training we carry out Direct Access courses 7 days a week at our Hesketh Bank training site. This site is specifically designed for motorcycle training.  The training is usually carried out on our Kawasaki ER6motorcycle training southport 650cc bikes but can be carried out on your own bike as long as it is roadworthy and meets all the legal requirements.

To take a Direct Access Test you must:

  • Hold a provisional or full UK licence
  • Have category 'A' listed on your license
  • Have passed the Motorcycle Theory Test
  • Hold a current CBT certificate
  • Be aged 24 years or over

Once you have satisfied these conditions you can take your Direct Access test. This will allow you to:

  • Ride any size bike
  • You can remove the 'L' plates
  • Travel on motorways (as long as your bike meets the legal criteria)
  • Carry a pillion passanger

The Test

There are 2 practical module tests to take:

  • MODULE 1 - 11 manoeuvres at a DSA test station

Motorcycle Direct Access Test and Training

Why choose us to help you pass?

We can offer Direct Access Test and training within days of you first contacting us and regularly have candidates sitting their test within a week of picking up the phone. If you live in Southport, Preston, Chorley or indeed anywhere within Lancashire or Merseyside please give us a call and pass your motorcycle test with Riverview Motorcycle Training.

The DSA only Approve the Training Bodies, They do NOT police them. There are some very bad trainers around and they will train with too many customers and not enough Instructors. Also you will have to share training bikes. THE REALLY BAD BIT IS THEY WILL ISSUE THE CERTIFICATES, WHEN THE STANDARDS ARE CLEARLY NOT MET.

With Riverview Motorcycle Training you can rest assured that you will have all the required knowledge and training to be a safe and confident motorcycle rider.

PLEASE NOTE The DSA only Approve the Training Bodies, they do not police them, and therefore there are some particularly poor training schools around who are not following the DVSA Rules. They are issuing Certificates when the standards have clearly not been met. You can be assured that Riverview Motorcycle Training follow and comply to all DVSA regulations.

Why Choose Us?

We are at the forefront of the rider training industry, successfully training pupils to the highest standards enabling them to pass the required elements first time.

We now have the reputation as the training school with the highest pass rates in Lancashire and the North West.
