I did the 5 day direct access back in 1998 in Bristol
The first 2 days were the basics of how to actually ride the bike & going out on the country roads before the CBT was issued, then it was onto the Bandits for the rest of the week, Lots more riding around & doing the criteria that was required in the old days along with lots of Tea & Bacon doorstop sarnies from the plethora of burger vans.
On the Friday it was test day & around 6 of us set forth to Ashton Gate test centre, one by one we went out with the instructor & did the drive around, park up, get off get on, do a u-turn & back to the test centre.
Of the 6 that went up only one failed because he dropped the bike when he got off it Dohhhh.
Best & most knackering week I have had in years tbh. but was well worth the effort.

My personal view is to invest in a course that teches how to ride and not just pass a test.
I completed my training with circuit based training at mallory park, who started teaching countersteering and leaning from day 1.
Just my view though.
