FAQ

Testimonials from Anglia Training Students, Don’t just take our word for it; these are extracts from some of the letters I have received.

Zowie 

Andy, just a note to say thanks for helping me to pass my test. A few weeks ago passing seemed a long way off but I’ve done it and I am over the moon. Your course was excellent; you never pushed at stuff I wasn’t ready for. The first time I go out on my own will feel really strange because I won’t have you talking in my ear!! But I think you will be (sort of) for a while. Will stop by if I’m out that way, if not will give you a call in about 15moths for my sons CBT. Thanks again Andy, all the best Zowie. 

James 

Andy just wanted to say thank you very much for taking me through my Direct Access. I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 weeks, the course is well structured and the kart track an excellent facility. I am in the process of getting a CBR600, so will call in soon to show it off. Thanks again James 

Darren, Downham Market Mods 

Dear Andy, thank you very much for the excellent training course I really enjoyed it. You taught me the important skills, riding correctly and safely with the added bonus making the course fun as well. I wont forget the “Man bags” gibes, but they do belong to you don’t they!! Thanks once again for helping me pass my test Andy and don’t forget to open an account with that Tea Wagon!! Darren, Downham Market Mods 

Marsha 

Andy, I can’t believe just a few short months ago I couldn’t even ride a bike, now I can’t imagine not riding one. Fantastic!! Thanks for everything! Marsha Aka Florence 

Miles 

Dear Andy, just a short note to say thank you very much for all the help and encouragement that you gave me over the last couple of weeks to help me pass my test. It is very much appreciated and I know that I would have stood no chance at all with out your expert tuition. I would thoroughly recommend anyone to sit their training and test with you. I am now off to look at bikes, even the “gay” Triumph America. I will try to catch you in when I do buy one so I can show it off to you and thank you again in person. With kindest regards, Miles. The one who had the U-turn phobia!

News.....

Everything changed on the 19th of January 2013 so please read the details below. 

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.
Law MV(DL)R regs 16 & 68

 A1 motorcycle licence: At age 17 or over, you take a test on a motorcycle without sidecar of between 120 and 125 cc. If you pass you may ride a motorcycle up to 125 cc with power output up to 11 kW, or a motor tricycle with power not exceeding 15 kW.

A2 motorcycle licence: At age 19 or over, you take a test on a motorcycle without sidecar of at least 395 cc with a power output of at least 25 kW but not exceeding 35 kW. If you pass, you may ride any motorcycle not exceeding 35 kW and with a power to weight ratio not exceeding 0.2 kW/kg.

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.

Rita 

Thank you Andy for your help and support for Ben during his lesson and test. The outcome was very successful just “2 minors!” and Ben felt that you gave him the extra confidence boost he needed. You were recommended to us and we will certainly do the same. Thank you again Rita.
