Depends how old you are when you pass your driving test. And weither you want to get some experience on a Smaller bike 50cc - 125cc for a while, would be a good idea. Then when you are 21 or over, then apply for the DAS lessons and test.

And if you want to get a bike, get professional help with a first bike, a real bike 500cc and up. As main dealers can be a massive help.

Cuz they don't want 17 year olds going out and buying 1000cc motorcycles which do 0-60mph in 2.5secs and 0-120mph in 5 seconds Pretty reasonable I think.

They're changing the law soon too, so that you have to be 24 before doing DAS.

At 17 you can do the restricted test and be subjected to 33bhp limit (yes the police check certificates lol), and you need to show L Plates too I think??
At 21 you can do the DAS and jump on any bike you like.
Both licenses enable you to ride on motorways and carry pillion passengers.

If you pass your restricted test and then turn 21 before the 2 years are up, you can do a top up course for about £100-200 which will give you the DAS license. Its more expensive and not really worth it in my opinion though, especially with the good range of 33bhp bikes out there nowadays

you dont need L-plates when your restricted to 33bhp, because you've already passed your test, you have a full uk bike licence, so your no longer a learner

Depends how old you are, I'll be 20 when I take my A(restricted) test and therefore will be restricted to 33bhp even at 21, so I might as well just take DAS and be able to take the chains of my baby

however for somebody like me, i'll be 21 in june 2007, my restriction ends in october so there is no point in me taking the DAS, for a matter of 4 months

Awesome bike, the geometry is pretty similar if you look at the 2 pics, that trek is a brilliant entry level bike because for the price (£500) the components you get are far better than anything specialized will give you for the same money.
