Good morning all,
I am a very keen driver, but am looking to get into bikes. I appreciate that the DAS is available, but can anyone advise me if there is a cheaper way of getting the full licence?

I'd say look to spend a minimum of Â£700 on a bike license. rough figures cbt Â£120150 theory Â£35 (I think) lessons Â£25 p/h x 2 = Â£500 mod 1 Â£15 test + 2h bike hire =Â£65 mod 2 (Â£75 I think) + 2h bike hire = Â£125 anywhere from Â£700  Â£850. just depends on how quick you learn

Completely depends how quickly you learn. Do not go for the cheapest instructors, as they will more than likely be rubbish. Look at reviews of the best ones in the area. You are looking at learning how to ride a bike on the road, properly, not just operate some controls aboard one. One certain riding school near me is nearly half the price I paid for lessons, I would never touch them.
This is the what I paid, cheaper than above but it depends on a lot of things.
CBT £100 sometimes even advertised as £80 or so. Theory same £35(ish) I had two 2 hour lessons £120 Mod 1 £60 including hire Mod 2 £120 inluding hire
£435 for me in total.
If you expect to pay £800, you'll only be happy if you come out spending £600.

Firstly god damn ayephones dont know why it puts an A before £ symbols. well done you if it took 4 hours to be test ready thats quite impressive. I point I would urge is if your going for it do it in one go if you can or as quickly as you can. I took my cbt then waited months to do das, then when I was doing lessons I done them every weekend or every second weekend (normally recovering from a hangover) it was a waste of time I should have just done a few days of intense solid lessons.

I just spent £525.00
Didn't ask for a breakdown but was CBT, Mod 1 and Mod 2.
Didn't need any lessons as I had previous bike experience and passed first time!
anywhere from 450700... just make sure you get a like for like comparison!
