DAS / A2 / A1
Direct Access Courses You Will Benefit From
The team at Focus Rider Training offer a wide range of Direct Access and A2/ A1 courses in Bury. The DAS allows riders aged over 24 to take a riding test on larger and more powerful motorcycles. These motorcycles and scooters are usually over 600cc. Once you clear the DAS course, you will be awarded a license which will allow you to ride a motorbike of any size and power. If you want to go for an A2 licence (19 years or older, maximum 46.6 bhp) or an A1 licence (17 years or older, maximum 125cc and 15 bhp) the course structure is the same. The courses we offer include both tests and we take all our trainees to our local DVSA Multiple test centre at Darwen weekends and Tuesday midweek, to practice the module one in a safe environment.
Pay-As-You-Go and Finance options now available

Use the 'Right Gear'
Riding a bike can be risky if you are not fully equipped with the right gear. Riding boots are a must and so are long trousers or heavy jeans. We issue our customers boots, armoured trousers, helmets, jackets and gloves. If you wear spectacles or contact lenses, please make sure that you wear them as an eyesight check is a requirement of the course.
