See types of full test courses we offer here
Five sessions (experienced) full test
For current riders who are already competent and just need to have the skill set to be able to pass all the stages of the testing process
Six sessions (beginners) full test
For riders with a little prior experience. Maybe you rode a 125cc when you were younger or you have had some off road experience on a geared bike.
Seven sessions (novice) full test
For novice riders or those looking for complete peace of mind. You do not even need to know how many wheels a motorcycle has to join this course
If you already have a CBT certificate which will remain in date throughout your training and tests, then you can book a course as above that will not have the CBT repeated and thus will be one session less. Look for the "No CBT" courses or call us to book

Questions and answers:
Camrider recommends that the 6 and 7 session course is completed over a two to four week period and the 5 sessions over two to three weeks. This is a much better way to learn as information is not “Parrot” leant, but fixes much better into your mid to long term memory. It also gives you a chance to rest between training sessions and even to consider if you may want some extra assistance maybe with another lesson.
The first CBT day should be considered as a full day – typically starting at 8.30 am and finishing between 2.30 pm and 5.30 pm dependant on your course and experience. The following sessions are in intensive 3.5 hour blocks either AM or PM.
We do not recommend full days for post-CBT training as learning to ride a bike is demanding both physically and mentally. There is a lot to learn and you will cover a lot of miles whilst gaining new skills. In the same way, a lorry driver will not exceed the hours their tachometer allows – we try to make sure you do not tire yourself out or get beyond your optimum learning point and thus start to reinforce negative learning experiences by compounding small mistakes when tired.
You can choose any of our full test courses, deduct the CBT fee if you booked it recently with us and miss the first CBT training session but carry on with the rest of the course. It is best to call and book with an advisor if you already have a valid CBT certificate.
We understand that some people do need to bunch up their training into an intensive package. Typically soldiers on leave or teachers with set holiday periods will ask us to bring the training package close together to fit into their time window.
We are happy to try to arrange this if vital to you, but would recommend the spaced courses if it is possible, as if you need more work or fail an element, then this may knock on so you loose session and/or test fees.
We can provide CBT and full test training sessions seven days a week. The DVSA who is an independent Government body will conduct the Module 1 and 2 tests during weekdays and on rare occasion make test available on Saturdays.
We need seven clear working days of notice to cancel or move a regular session or 10 clear working days to move or cancel a session with a test attached. Regrettably, we don’t provide insurance for you if you need to cancel for any reason outside that cancellation period. We can provide you with a note stating you did not attend for you to present to your own insurer if you have any such cover.
Module 1 and 2 tests are conducted by Examiners from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency. This is an external Government body. We will book you into your test, train you and accompany you to the test centre to settle you in.
Riders aged 24 plus will use our 600cc bikes set to full power and will gain their full “A” licence.
Riders aged 19 to 23 will use our 600cc bikes with a small limiter switched on to allow then to gain the full “A2” licence
The “A” licence (aged 24 plus) means you can ride any bike any power no restriction.
The “A2” licence (ages 19 to 23) means you can ride up to 46bhp eg. a Honda NC700 or any bike that is legally restricted. See the licence rules here
Either wait until you are 24 or for two years of your holding a full “A2” licence (whichever is soonest). Then just retake the DVSA tests on the unrestricted bike and you will have the new bigger power “A” licence. This process can be done in as little as 4 hours dependant on your ability.
