Will keep you updated here and on Facebook. Thank you and we will rebook everyone already booked as soon as we can. Will post when our office is reopening. Driving tests are cancelled until the end of June, although some tests will be available for key workers. When we re-open Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) will take place as usual with the necessary safety measures. KEEP SAFE.

A1 Course 

These courses are taken on a 125cc motorcycle. All our 125cc motorcycles have gears. Passing the test will give you an ‘A1’ motorcycle licence which allows you to ride a 125cc machine without ‘L’ plates and to carry a passenger. You can use your own automatic 125cc scooter for this test, but you will then be restricted to automatic motorcycles. The practical test is in two parts – Module 1 and Module 2. You need to pass them in order.


You need to be age 17 or over. Before you can start the training you must have a valid CBT and a valid motorcycle theory test pass. If you don’t hold a valid CBT certificate, then you will have to complete a CBT first on day 1 of your course. The theory can be arranged by ringing 0300 200 1122 or by visiting link on the right.

Flexibility: As the course fee is charged at a daily rate you can choose your options.

You can take CBT followed by both modules within consecutive days, gaining a full licence in one visit, or split your days to suit, i.e. take CBT and Module 1 initially to be followed later by Module 2. We are totally flexible and can arrange your course to suit you. Our experienced office staff will help you with booking your course. 

Module 1

This consists of a series of manoeuvres that are conducted at the DSA Multi Purpose Test Centre. Some of these are at slow speeds, (such as a slalom and a U-Turn), and some at higher speeds, (including a 50km, (about 32 mph) avoidance manoeuvre), which require a good standard of machine handling skills.

Fortunately at the Bristol Motorcycle Training Centre we have a Module 1 test circuit permanently laid out for you to train on. We also use a speed gun to aid training.

After completing your Module 1 training you will be fully prepared for your test and your instructor will accompany you to the local MPTC to take the Module 1 practical test.

Module 2

This test consists of a 40 minute road ride. At the start of the test the examiner will brief you. You will have an eye-sight test and be asked a number of safety questions before being given a final briefing. The rest of the test will be conducted on the road.

Module 2 training will totally prepare you for all aspects of the test and will be conducted on the road. The training will culminate in your instructor taking you to the local MPTC to take the Module 2 practical test.

The fees for Module 1 & Module 2 training are £165 per day / £85 half days after achieving CBT which includes training, motorcycle, equipment, tax and insurance, fuel with no hidden extras.

Once you have passed both modules you will have a full category A1 licence to ride a 125cc motorcycle. When you have held an A1 Test for a minimum of two years you may upgrade to an A2 standard licence by just retaking Modules 1&2. You will not need to take the CBT and theory test again if you take this route.
