Restricted / DAS Licence - can someone please clarify

Recommended Posts

I am sure this must have come up 100 times but I just want to clarify. I have done my CBT and feel very comfortable driving my CG125. I am about to take my theory test (and hopefully will pass).

I believe there are now the two options for me to take in which I will do the two part, Mod 1 and Mod 2 test which I understand are identical. However, I believe if you:

1. Complete the test on my own 125 with some lessons - I`ll get the restricted licence and will have to carry on riding my 125 for 2 years but can remove the L plates.

2. Complete the test on a 600 (? or bigger bike anyway) and I`ll be able to drive anything.

So with method 1, I could potentially do lots of reading and lots of reading of the forums, have a few (I have been told ~4) lessons and book my own mod 1 and mod 2 test and get it done.

With method 2, I`d have to do the DAS because you need accompanying everywhere due to the bigger bike size and making it much more expensive.

Is that all right???

If that is right - how many lessons would you think is needed before I could attempt my Mod 1 & 2 test on my own bike? I just can`t afford the expense of the DAS, not right now anyway..

DAS just means doing the bests on a bigger bike. It costs no more than doing it on a 125. Well ok, slightly more as you will have to pay for the bike hire on your lessons where you wouldn't have to on your own bike. But what's that, about a rennet extra per lesson or something.

Assuming your old enough just go for the DAS

If you take and pass Mod 1 and Mod 2 on a 125 you don't have to stay on a 125, you can ride a bigger bike but it'd have to be restricted to 33bhp for 2 years.

Would think if you get the road/bike experience on your 125 before you take your test then you shouldn't need too many lessons - just enough to learn how to pass your test!
