  •   I did a DAS course at 1st Class and passed my Mod 1 and Mod 2 at the first attempt. I was quite an anxious rider and the additional help they provided was great. In the week I was there not a single person failed a test which goes some way to explain how thorough the instruction is. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend 1st Class to anyone wanting to learn to ride.

      Awsome place for a first timer. I was a little shakey at first but got the hang of it. the tutor was a very good man

      Used to do CBT here when younger and recently just passed both MOD 1 and 2 with no faults after training here again. Don't waste your time going anywhere else, these guys are brilliant.

  •   I booked my CBT and DAS on Friday, by the following Friday I had passed my mod 1 and 2. Although 1st class motorcycle training is the only training centre I’ve been to, the result speaks for itself. Apart from the excellent training provided, the people there are great to be around, the bikes were very well maintained and a joy to ride. My experience there was short but very sweet. I’d recommend anyone going there. Thanks again 1st Class!

      passed first time !!! Basically don't go anywhere else. These are the nicest guys who focus you and genuinely enjoy what they do. All your nerves and worries will disappear as it's such a relaxed place to learn. Good luck to future riders and much thanks to everyone at first class.

Compulsory Basic Training

1st Class Motorcycle Training CBT Information…

The CBT is a basic training course required by law to validate all provisional licences ( i.e. EVERYONE riding on L – Plates ).

 

 

This course is required by law for anyone wishing to ride a moped or motorcycle on the road. At 16 years old you can only ride a 49cc moped and at 17 years old or above you can ride up to a 125cc motorcycle.
The CBT only allows you to ride under the provisional conditions of your driving licence, this means you will need to have L-Plates displayed, won’t be allowed to carry a passenger, travel on motorways or ride anything larger than a 125cc machine.

Compulsory basic training (CBT ) has 5 elements:

introduction and eyesight check
practical on-site training
practical on-site riding
practical on-road training
practical on-road riding

The CBT course can be booked through ourselves and courses are run every weekend throughout the year, we also run the courses on selected weekdays which do vary each week.

The course takes place on our unique off road training area which is by far the largest in the south west giving you the best opportunity to gain full control of your motorcycle before progressing out onto the road.

The price for this course is £79 using your own machine or £99 using one of our machines. On your training day we will not charge you an extra damage waiver fee.

You can choose to take you’re CBT course on a 2:1 ratio over a full day instead of the standard CBT course (4:1 ratio), the cost for this is £125 and needs to be requested at the time of booking. (CBT certificates will still only be issued if all the required elements are covered and a satisfactory standard is met).(Times do vary for the weekday courses.)

 
Upon successful completion of the above elements, you will be issued with your CBT certificate (DL 196).This is a legal document which validates the relevant entitlements on your driving licence.
Should any student not reach the required compulsory safety standard to obtain a CBT, the student will be given an opportunity to re-attend a further CBT course;  within four weeks of the original CBT course on a date as agreed with 1st Class at a reduced cost if booked at the time of the original CBT course.

When booking your CBT with 1st Class, you are ensuring that not only will you receive the best training standards available, in a safe and secure location , but also at a superb price due to our price match guarantee.
 
If you lose your CBT certificate , copies are available from 1st Class for a small charge.
 
CBT certificates are valid for 2 years

How many days you take is up to you, some people only have 1 days training and manage to get through both A1 tests on their own bike. We would recommend just booking 1 day to begin with and see how you get on. A1 training cannot be booked online as yet so you would need to contact the office to book your training days.

We are now offering a GUARANTEED PASS ON YOUR MODULE 1 TEST WITH ALL OUR 3,4 and 5 DAY A2/DAS FULL LICENCE COURSES. This means that in the highly unlikely event that you should fail your MODULE 1 TEST with us then we will NOT CHARGE YOU to retake the MODULE 1 test.

NO CHARGE for BIKE HIRE!
NO CHARGE for EXTRA TRAINING!
NO CHARGE for the RE-TEST!

Since the introduction of our fleet of KTM DUKE 690 motorcycles, we have had so few customers fail their MODULE 1 TEST on their first attempt and we are so confident in both the excellent handling and great manoeuvrability of these machines along with our own high standard of tuition, that we are giving this Module 1 pass guarantee to our students!

 
For those aged 17+ or those that simply don’t want to ride anything bigger than a 125cc but just want to remove your L plates and carry pillions the A1 licence is for you.
 
You must complete a CBT, motorcycle theory test and take both Module 1 and Module 2 practical tests using a 125cc machine.
 
 
Please Note:
 
Once an A1 Licence has been gained, riders should be aware that the motorcycle restrictions are no longer removed after 2 years, unless you progress onto a higher category licence i.e. A2 or Direct Access, in which case you will need to take a motorcycle theory test before booking your A2 or Direct Access course…

Looking for more information on specific course  ?

Already have a CBT and want to progress up, but not sure what course/s you are applicable for?

Then look no further as 1st Class have put together all the information you'll need for your Route To Your Licence !!

Unfortunately, for some students booking their very first CBT, or going on to a full licence course, they encounter major issues with the way some training schools aren't fully honest and up front with their course pricing, and whether or not insurance is included with the prices "quoted" to them...and then to find out on the day they turn up for their course, the training schools in question want them to pay for "motorcycle insurance" on top of the price already paid, as if they have an accident they will be "liable" to pay for the damages incurred.
So before booking your motorcycle course, 1st Class have put together some information we feel may be of some value to students and to prepare them for any questions they should be asking the training schools before booking their course/s.

A guide to EU-wide licence rules to improve safety for motorcyclists…

Motorcycle licence rules changed as of 19th January 2013. Under European legislation governing driving and riding licences.. The EU-wide rules aim to make motorcycling safer by ensuring that riders get experience of riding before they ride more powerful machines.
 
The new rules, which came into force on 19 January 2013, will mean:
 
Riders aged 17-19 will be limited to 125cc bikes (category A1)
 
Riders aged 19-21 will be limited to bikes with a power of up to 46.6bhp – typically around 500cc (category A2)

Practical Test Details…

The new practical motorcycle test is now in effect as of 27th April 2009 to comply with European legislation, which aims to improve the standard of road safety for motorcycle and moped riders. This user group have been identified as having a high risk of injury or death. This is particularly the case for young and inexperienced riders.
 
In October 2000, the European Commission brought in new standards for theoretical and practical driving tests conducted within the European Union (EU). This new legislation adds to this and is intended to ensure that motorcycle test candidates demonstrate that they are competent in the control of their machines at a more demanding level than is currently the case.
 
The new one test event will contain two elements. The Higher speed manoeuvres and other exercises will be tested on safe off-road sites and take about 8 minutes to complete. The accompanied riding element of the test will follow, consisting of a road ride include normal stops, hill and angle starts. Candidates who have exhibited riding skills of a dangerously incompetent level during the off-road part of the test will not be permitted to proceed to the on-road element.
 
The new test will be delivered from a network of sites provided either directly by DSA or via private developers. Many of the centres will be Multipurpose Test Centres (MPTC) providing both motorcycle and car testing facilities. Some will provide Large Goods Vehicle (LGV) and Passenger Carrying Vehicle (PCV) testing facilities. Some low use sites will only provide motorcycle testing.
 
New site for Plymouth is now complete, and is located in Ernesettle.

What’s New

Module 1 must be passed first and consists of a series of specified manoeuvres that will be conducted off road. It will include exercises designed to assess the rider’s ability to control their machine safely, including avoidance and emergency stop exercises. Module 1 will last approximately 22 minutes.
 
Module 2 of the test  will consist of the eyesight test, road safety questions and at least 30 minutes of road riding. covering a variety of road and traffic conditions and will also include normal stops, hill and angle starts. It is similar to the previous motorcycling test and is designed to assess the rider’s ability to safely interact with other road users. Module 2 will last approximately 57 minutes – (includes at least 30 minutes of road riding).

Click Images below to view full size:

 

The diagrams show the proposed layout of the manoeuvring area. At the discretion of the examiner, candidates will be asked to demonstrate their ability to ride a right circuit, and steer to the right on the avoidance exercise or a left circuit and steer to the left on the avoidance exercise.

The practical moped riding test is being developed. The higher speed manoeuvres for moped riders will be slower than for motorcycles. A test for the drivers of motorcycle and side car combination is also under development.

Special Off Road Facilities:

It was considered that it would not be safe to conduct the new higher speed and braking manoeuvres on public roads, which in very built up and busy test areas, would not be safe for the rider, other road users and the general public.
 
Undertaking a fair and consistent assessment for all candidates across Great Britain would be best achieved by using a pre-determined layout using ground markings and cones. It would be impractical to do that on a public road with other traffic present.
 
Due to the minimum speeds required and different handling and power characteristics of different machines, it has been necessary to calculate a minimum test area in which to conduct the new test.
 
What will the new Multi-Purpose Test Centres provide?
 
” comfortable waiting room with toilet facilities
 
” easy access and toilet facilities for disabled candidates
 
” good off road parking facilities for motorcycles and cars
 
” separate “radio kit up” room for motorcycle candidates
 
” an off road motorcycle manoeuvring area for the new test, finished with a high specification surface providing good grip in wet and dry weather and designed to be without hazards such as drainage gullies.

Testimonials

We think we're great, and our students seem to agree....

Our reputation here at 1st Class means a great deal to us, and whilst we train each student to a very high standard, we try to ensure that all students have a safe and enjoyable experience whilst learning to ride...

Just as important is the feedback we receive from our students, and as such we've posted a small selection of what our students have to say about 1st Class below...

Good laugh, laid back, no pressure

Hi to all the staff at 1st Class,

I would like to thank you all for the exceptional professional training you gave me. You made me feel very welcome, relaxed and trained me in an excellent atmosphere. Why go second Class when you can go 1st Class, with all that 1st Class has to offer there’s no comparison…1st Class is by far the best motor bike training school around, second to none!!

I really enjoyed training at 1st Class, as the training was based on your ability, and time was flexible.

The reason these guys are 1st Class is because they are “Second to None” !! A great experience, from CBT to DAS !!
