Step four: Pass the Practical Driving Assessment (PDA)

At this stage, you need to take your PDA with DOT.  Alternatively, to ensure success, book Stay Upright’s PDA Prep and Test Session (R-Class) or Private Lessons and we will make it easy for you.  If you successfully pass the PDA, your Licence will be updated to authorise you to ride R-class motorcycles.

The PDA determines your general riding skills such as:

  • Balance the vehicle at low speeds by riding around a figure-O without putting a foot on the ground.
  • Correctly park and start on a hill.
  • Perform a quick stop under full control without locking either wheel.
