Theory and Practical Test

To obtain a full motorcycle test it is necessary to pass a theory and two part practical tests. Your age will determine which test you can sit, and if you need guidance or further information then read our motorcycle licence options information.

Motorcycle Practical Tests

To obtain a full motorcycle licence, you must successfully complete Part 1, which is Compulsory Basic Training (CBT); pass the motorcycle theory test; and then undergo Part 2 training for either Restricted Access (Category A1or A2 licence) or Full Access (Category A licence) called Direct Access (DAS). Which licence you can go for depends upon your age and the motorcycles engine capacity and power output. A full explanation is given in our Licence Option section. It is necessary to pass two tests commonly referred to as called Mod 1 and Mod 2.

Module 1 (Mod 1) - this is an off-road test conducted by the Driving Standards Agency (DVSA) on a Multi Purpose Test Centre (MPTC). This test lasts approximately 12 minutes and tests your handling skills and both slow speed and high speed machine control. ProScot's training course will prepare you fully for Module 1 and includes practicing on the DSA's MPTC to build your confidence before sitting your Module 1 test.

Module 2 (Mod 2) - this is a 35-minute on-road test conducted by the DVSA which assesses your ability to ride in traffic. ProScot's training course provides on-road training and mock tests to prepare you fully for the Module 2 test.
