About the A2 licence

To take part in the A2 you must be a minimum of 19 years of age. You must have a current CBT and your motorcycle theory test certificate. You are required to take your test on a motorcycle of 47bhp which we will provide.

What is required on the day?

You are required to bring your UK provisional/driving licence. Your current valid CBT certificate and motorcycle theory certificate will be required.

Clothing rules

You must wear:

  • a motorcycle helmet that meets British safety standards (this doesn’t apply if you’re Sikh and wearing a turban)
  • motorcycle boots or other sturdy footwear that provides support and ankle protection
  • textile or leather motorcycle trousers or heavy denim trousers
  • a textile or leather motorcycle jacket or a heavy denim jacket with several layers underneath
  • motorcycle gloves

Your test will be cancelled and you’ll lose your fee if you don’t meet these standards.

What does the A2 entitle me to

Once completed you will be issued with a A2 motorcycle entitlement to ride a bike of 47bhp or a bike restricted to 47bhp only on your licence.

You can ride without L-plates, carry passengers and use motorways. The licence does not automatically upgrade.

Once you reach 21 years of age or 2 years from the date of passing the A2 tests you then have the option to take your A motorcycle tests, you will not be required to have a CBT certificate or retake your theory it is just an upgrade to your licence, which will allow you to ride a bike of any size with no restrictions.
