Getting a restricted bike licence

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What are the chances of finding time to get my motorbike licence in the first year of being in the Army? Obviously I am not talking about getting it through the Army but rather doing a 5 day intensive civilian course sometime during leave.

    I would have just waited until I was posted to my first unit and settled in but I will be in phase 2 training for roughly 18 months so it seems a long wait. Been driving a car for 15 months now but always fancied two wheels rather than four. I was thinking of trying to get it booked near Christmas (weather and availibility permitting) so that I would atleast have a licence before turning up at phase 2 and that would be one obstacle out of the way. Any suggestions?
