Direct Access Scheme

The direct access scheme was introduced to allow riders easier access to a wider range of motorcycle options.

Direct access is a scheme which allows a person aged 24 and over to avoid the restriction by training and taking a test on a machine of at least 595cc and at least 40 kW (53.641 bhp).

If a rider has held a Full A2 category licence for more than two years before reaching 24 years of age, they are allowed to upgrade before their 24th birthday.

A pass allows you to ride any size of bike.

Any instruction given on a machine that exceeds the normal learner motorcycle specification must be supervised at all times by a certified motorcycle instructor, who should be in radio contact.

You should also wear fluorescent and reflective clothing and follow all other provisional licence restrictions.
