A2 Motorcycle Licence Training in North London

A2 Restricted Licence Training North London

Our North London A2 motorcycle licence courses are run from Tottenham (Edmonton), and are perfect for those people who would like to get their A2 35kw (46.6bhp) Motorcycle licence.  The A2 motorbike licence is a full motorbike licence, which allows you to ride any sized motorcycle of your choice without 'L' Plates, carry pillion passengers and use motorways. 

However, although you are permitted to ride any sized motorcycle, the power output of your motorbike must not exceed 35kw (46.6bhp).  This power restriction remains enforced on your licence until you decide to upgrade your motorcycle licence entitlement by re-taking the practical part of your test again on a larger motorcycle via the progressive accees route.

You can take your A2 motorcycle test on either a manual or automatic motorbike. If you choose take your test on a manual motorcycle, you can ride either manual motorcycles or automatics, however if you take your test on an automatic, you will be limited to automatics. For this reason, we tend to encourage people to take their A2 motorcycle test on a manual bike.  For those people who have limited or no experience riding manual bikes, we offer a 2 hour conversion, which is on a 1-2-1 basis where one of our expert instructs will teach you how to ride a manual motorcycle, with a view to having you prepared at the end of the session to be ready to attend one of our A2 motorcycle training courseson a manual bike.

Who is the A2 Motorcycle test For?

The A2 Motorcycle test is available to anyone over the age of 19, and requires you to pass both the DSA Module 1 & DSA Module 2 practical motorcycle tests on a machine which is 495cc or above, with a power output between 33-46.6bhp. The A2 motorcycle licence is the most powerful bike licence available to those between 19 and 23 years of age. Once you have held the A2 licence for a minimum of 2 years (or reach the 24 years of age - whichever comes first), you can re-sit your motorcycle test on a larger bike (Direct Access) and if you successfully pass both DSA practical modules on a DAS bike, your licence will be upgraded to a full unrestricted motorcycle licence.


Our A2 Restricted Access coures in London are inclusive of bike hire, helmet and gloves. The majority of our A2 restricted licence courses in London are carried out around North London (Enfield), as this is where the DSA test centre is situated.

Our A2 restricted licence training run from both our North London and East London training centre's. The convenience of having 2 locations in seperate areas of London means that those people who live in Southgate, Muswell Hill, Highbury Islington, Euston, Kings cross and Edmonton, now have the convenience of choosing to take a course from our Tottenham training site.

For people living closer to East London in areas such as Stratford, Dalston, Hackney, Shoreditch, East Ham, Forest Gate, Docklands or Romford, our training site in Barkingside (Ilford) is probably more convenient for you. That said, both our East London & North London motorcycle training centres, provide excellent transport connections, that are easily accessible from all over London.

A2 Restricted Access Requirements

In order to attend an A2 restricted motorcycle course, you must first of all have a valid CBT certificate, and have passed the motorcycle theory test, as once you have passed your theory test, you are issued with a theory certificate number which is needed to book your A2 practical test.

You will also be required to have a valid licence (this may be in the form of provisional licence, or full car licence, which automatically carries provisional entitlement for you to ride motorcycles). As previously mentioned, a current valid CBT certificate is also required, however, if you do not already have a CBT certificate or it has expired, we can include your CBT training as part of your course

A2 Motorcycle Training Courses

Our A2 motorcycle courses in North London are generally run over 3 days. To attend one of our A2 motorcycle courses, you must have passed your motorcycle theory certificate and have a current CBT

Our 3 Day A2 Restricted Access Course (Most recommended):

Our 3 Day A2 Course includes both your Module 1 & Module 2 test.

The first day will consist of both Module 1 & Module 2 training. The second day will consist of more training and your Module 1 test. Finally, the third day will be Module 2 training, followed by your Module 2 test.

As you cannot attend your Module 2 test until you have passed your Module 1 test, we can only provide you with dates for the first 2 days of your course, with the third day being To Be Confirmed (TBC). We will then provide you with a third and final date, once you have passed your Module 1 test. If you are unfortunate enough not to pass your Module 1 test on your first attempt, we can then arrange a re-sit before booking you in for your final day.

There are lots of training schools who offer both Module 1 & Module 2 tests on the same day, as it is more conveneint for the training school, as it means they only have to take you to the test centre once instead of twice, but ultimatley it is you the pupil, who is taking the risk and putting additional pressure on yourself for Module 1 knowing that if you fail, you will not be able to take your Module 2 test, and will lose any fees you have paid towards such test.  However, as much as we advise against it, we can arrange your Module 1 & Module 2 tests on the same day if it is something you insist on.

If you would like more information about our 3 Day A2 Restricted Access course, please send us an email, and we will happily provide you with a detailed breakdown of the course which has lead to a superb first time pass rate.

Our 2 Day Restricted Access Course:

We do also offer a 2 day course for more experienced riders, which naturally involves less training.

Our 2 day course requires you to sit both your Module 1 & Module 2 tests on the same day. Therefore, please be aware that if you are unfortunate enough not to pass your Module 1 test, you will not be able to proceed to your Module 2 test, and as such, the fee for such test will have been forfeited.

However, please also consider that if this situation occurs, you will not only have lost your Module 2 fee, but will also then have to pay for another Module 1 test as well as another Module 2 test, which works out more expensive than opting for our more popular 3 Day A2 Course, where we Book your Module 1 & Module 2 tests on seperate days to avoid this scenario, and also allow time for additional training to help ensure a first time pass on both tests.

What if I've never ridden a manual bike?

For people who have never ridden a geared bike, but would like to ass their A2 test on a manual motorbike, we would recommend doing your CBT on a manual bike.  However, if you already have a CBT, then we would suggest doing a 2 hour 1-2-1 conversion course with one of our instructors, where we will teach you how to ride a manual motorcycle, and get you to a standard where you are good enough to attend our 3 Day A2 restricted Licence course.
