FAQ
   

 Anglia Training FAQ

Do I need a Driving Licence for all of the courses? 

Yes, when you register for training you must bring both parts of your licence with you, i.e. the photo card and the green paper counter part. If you have an old style licence you will need to bring your Passport for i.d. NB no documents, no training, and loss of fee!!
It is your responsibility to ensure your licence entitles you to ride the vehicle to be used in training, Moped (Group ‘P’ or group ‘E’ on licences pre 1990) Motorcycles/Scooters (Group ‘A’ or group ‘D’ on licences pre 1990) Some licences issued in the mid 1990’s do not have motorcycle entitlements so you may have to re apply for a new licence. If you haven’t got a licence you can apply for one by getting a form from the post office. 

Do I need to do a theory test; I have already passed one for my car? 

Yes, if you want to take your Motorcycle Practical Test you will need to pass your Motorcycle Theory Test first, so ideally it is better to do that before booking a course. You can book the theory test on line at https://pt.dsa.gov.uk/tests/online_booking_1.asp and a handy revision site is http://www.theory-test.co.uk/asp/default.asp . It is definitely worth revising before the test and if you need any advice give us a call. 

Do I need to do a Theory Test for a CBT? 

No but it is worth looking through the Highway Code, particularly if you are a new road user. Many 16 year olds have very poor knowledge of the Highway Code and make unnecessary mistakes as a result. Having a clear understanding of the rules gives you the confidence to approach hazards and traffic situations, knowing what to do when you get there. 

Do I need to have a Moped or Motorcycle? 

No, all of the course prices include the use of our bikes 

Will I need to have my own motorcycle clothing? 

If you have your own gear bring it along but if not we have plenty of gear on site but please wear strong trousers like jeans on the day not nylon jogging pants and definitely no shorts.

Motorcycle licence requirements from 19th January 2013 Please don't hesitate to ring if you have any questions.

Before any training you must have a provisional UK Licence, then the first step is to take your Compulsory Basic Training. (CBT)

On completion of your CBT, at 16 you can ride a moped up to 49cc, either Automatic or Geared and at age 17 and above you can ride a 125cc bike. If in 2 years time you havent gone onto further training and passed a Motorcycle test to obtain your full icence, you will need to re-take the CBT. Riding on a CBT you must display L plates and you can not carry a pillion passenger.

To obtain your full motorcycle licence you MUST pass a motorcycle theory test and then a practical test.

Full A motorcycle licence: Test taken on a motorcycle without sidecar, of at least 595 cc and an engine power of at least 40 kW. This gives you full access to all motorcycles and motor tricycles. You obtain a category A licence by taking progressive access from age 21, or under the direct access scheme from age 24.

Category A under progressive access: You can take a category A practical test at age 21 if you already have an A2 licence that you’ve held for a minimum of two years. You don’t need to take another theory test or hold a CBT certificate.

 Category A under direct access: This is for riders aged 24 or over. To obtain a category A licence you must
successfully complete a CBT course
pass the motorcycle theory test
pass the practical motorcycle test.

Passing the practical test on a motorcycle of at least 40 kW (53.6bhp) gives immediate access to all sizes of motorcycle.

You MUST NOT carry a pillion passenger or pull a trailer until you have passed your test. Also see Rule 253 covering vehicles prohibited from motorways.
Law MV(DL)R reg 16

It was April 2009 when the 2 part, Mod 1 and Mod 2 Test was introduced and this has'nt changed. With plenty of experience behind us we have an excellent pass rate and our best run on the Mod 1 test is 55 first time passes on the trot. Well done to all pupils and especially Jody who made it 50 out of 50. Just for good measure he went on to pass his Mod 2 test in the afternoon and he is pictured here with both of his certificates.

 There is no doubt that the hardest part of the Mod 1 test is achieving the correct speed for the higher speed manoeuvres and you only get 2 chances to get it right. We train for this on the safety of the track and can record your speed by radar, so you will be well prepared for the requirements of Module 1.

The Module 2 Test, involves a 35 minute ride around the test centre area, where we spend plenty of time training before your test.

 Alex and Charlie were our first 2 pupils to take the new test and they passed both modules first time with flying colours. They both felt well prepared for the Mod 1 after the time we spent on the track. Well done to them both, it was nice to get off to a good start.
