In this blog, we’ll cover the essentials of what you need to know about the A1 licence, drawing on our expertise and passion for motorcycles.
The A1 motorcycle licence is a category of motorcycle licence in many countries, specifically tailored for riders aged 17 and over. It allows you to ride motorcycles with a power output of up to 11kW (14.6bhp) and an engine size not exceeding 125cc.
The Path to Obtaining Your A1 Licence: Typically, the process involves passing a motorcycle theory test, a Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) course, and two practical tests (Module 1 and Module 2).
At Alpha Motorcycles, we offer comprehensive training courses that not only prepare you for the tests but also equip you with essential riding skills for safety and confidence on the road.
The theory test is a crucial component of your licensing process. Our experienced instructors provide valuable tips and resources to help you succeed.
Manoeuvring Skills: This off-road test assesses your ability to handle a motorcycle, including exercises like figure-of-eight, cornering, and emergency stops.
On-Road Riding: The on-road test evaluates your practical riding skills in real traffic conditions, ensuring you are ready to ride safely and independently.
Obtaining your A1 licence is just the beginning of a thrilling journey. At Alpha Motorcycles, we are here to guide you through every step, ensuring your transition into the world of motorcycling is smooth, safe, and enjoyable.
