Our motorcycle training courses: 

Automatic Machines

If you pass your practical test on a motorcycle with automatic or semi-automatic transmission, this will be recorded on your licence. Your full licence entitlement will be restricted to motorcycles in this category.


Learners who wish to ride with a sidecar can practice on a combination with a power/weight ratio not exceeding 0.16 kW/kg.

On obtaining a standard licence, you will be restricted to a combination with the same power/weight ratio for two years.

At age 21 learners may, only within direct or accelerated access, practice on a larger combination, but the test must be taken on a solo bike (although physically disabled riders can use a combination).


Quads fall into the same licensing categories as a car. You will have to pass your car test to ride a quad.
