What is Direct Access (DAS)?
The Direct Access or DAS Scheme quite simply allows a learner of over 24 to fast track the learning process onto larger more powerful machines. The DAS scheme enables you to train and test on motorcycles of over 53.6 BHP (e.g. 600cc). This is by far the most popular DAS Training course we run for clients over 24 years of age.
There are several advantages with DAS Scheme training. First of all you will learn on a larger more powerful machine, possibly very similar to the one you may buy on passing your test. In addition some of our DAS training bikes can be fitted with an optional lower seat height which many learner riders feel is a great confidence booster when riding a “big ‘bike” for the first time.
Once you have passed your test, you will be able to ride any bike regardless of power output or engine size. Whilst we would not recommend buying a 1000cc super bike as a first big bike, the Direct Access or DAS Scheme does allow you a much greater choice of machines. This can be useful if commuting, touring by motorcycle or riding with a pillion passenger is your ultimate goal.
