A2 Bike Test
a2 motorcycle test for 19-23 year olds
From 19th January 2013, the A2 Test must be taken on a bike of at least 245cc capacity and between 20kw & 35kw – 46.6 BHP.
We use Suzuki Gladius 650cc restricted motorcycles, however once passed you can ride any restricted bike as long as it is restricted by no more than half its original output stated by the manufacturer, so it must be of 93bhp or less.
At 24 (or 2 years after passing A2) you can opt to upgrade to any size bike by taking a further road test on a Direct Access size bike of 595cc and 57bhp or more.
There are already 47bhp restrictor kits available for this license. Although the E.U. 3rd directive has changed the automatic upgrade after 2 years, there are however some positives:
- Taking your tests on a real ‘Big Bike’ not an underpowered 125 machine
- An increase of minimum bhp from 33 to 46.6bhp
2 Full years after passing the A2 test you will be eligible to take the Direct Access test, this will enable you to ride any bike of bhp, so if you passed at 19 you can do your DA at 21 and not 24.
All courses include CBT, Theory Test and both Modules of the practical test. If your CBT or Theory test is already complete we will of course deduct that from our course fee.
