If you are aged 24 or over, you are eligible for the Direct Access Scheme (DAS), upon completion of a practical test you’re awarded a Category A licence, allowing you to ride a motorcycle of any size.

Unlike learning to drive a car, most motorcycle training is completed through an intensive course which is spread over multiple days. CSN offers Direct Access courses which take place over multiple consecutive days, or over several weekends whichever best fits your needs.

DAS students practising roundabouts with an instructor

Our courses range from 3 to 6 days, dependant on your previous motorcycle experience. Our 3 day course suits those with previous road and motorcycle experience whereas our 5 day course is more suited to first time riders.

The first day of training always involves completing a CBT on a 125cc (for those who are not already certified) which is included in all prices. The final days take place primarily out on the road on one of our Kawasaki ER650s.

Contact us now to book a Free Assessment where one of our instructors can advise you on which course is best for you.

All motorcycle tests are split into two parts, know as the Module 1 and Module 2 tests. The Module 1 test involves demonstrating basic riding capability to a DSA examiner on a closed circuit and generally takes 20 minutes.

The Module 2 test involves at least 30minutes of on-road testing with a DSA examiner where you must demonstrate all of techniques needed to be a safe, legal and capable rider.
