DAS - Direct Access Scheme

If you are aged 24 or over you can opt to train and take your test on a larger motorcycle. This is called the Direct Access Scheme (DAS). This training is usually done on one of our big bikes (600cc plus) motorcycles. Some of these bikes are fitted with ABS anti-lock brakes for your safety and heated grips for your comfort. In addition some of the bikes are fitted with the optional lower seat height which many learner riders feel is a great confidence booster when riding a "big 'bike" for the first time. Alternatively you can use your own machine, as long as it meets the test vehicle requirements.

There are several advantages with DAS (Direct Access Scheme) training. First off you learn on a larger more powerful machine, similar to the ones many people will buy on passing their test. Once you have passed the test, you can ride any motorcycle you wish with no restrictions on power output or engine size. While I would definitely not recommend buying a super bike as a first big bike the Direct Access Scheme does allow a much greater choice of machines and this can be useful if commuting, riding with a pillion passenger or touring by motorcycle is planned.


Our DAS prices include on road training, practical test fee, bike hire, fuel & insurance, Safety helmet & Gloves see our terms and conditions.

We offer split courses over weekdays and weekends to help spread the cost and help with work commitments. Daily and hourly rates are also available if you require.

Direct Access Scheme (DAS)

Our Direct Access Scheme (DAS) training courses are put together to suit you, the individual, depending on the level of experience you already have and all courses can be done in a block of consecutive days or split up and spread over a longer period. Many people find that spreading the training over a longer period allows them to carry on with minimal disruption to their normal routine.

There is no substitute for experience and adequate preparation when it comes to passing the test and riding safely on the road: when selecting and booking a training course be realistic about your current level of riding ability. Remember if you fail the test because you weren't ready for it, it will work out to be more expensive in the long run.

We have a wide choice of bikes to use for the Direct Access Scheme courses. These include (Kawasaki ER5, Honda CB500, Suzuki Bandit and BMW F650CS). Most people using these bikes pass their test within 3 to 4 days and they help us maintain one of the highest pass rates in the industry.
