Motorcycle Lessons from ProScot

ProScot motorcycle training school in Fife offers a full array of expert tuition that will help you to master the art of riding a motorcycle from beginner to advanced level.

There are a few options to choose from it all depends on what size of bike you want to ride and how old you are. We offer lessons from beginner introductory lessons to Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) to your A2 restricted and full Direct Access (DAS) motorcycle tests right through to advanced rider training.

ProScot was established in 1996 and since then the reputation of our motorcycle training school has grown far and wide. Over 30% of our motorcycle students come from out with the Fife area in Edinburgh, Dundee, Perth, Falkirk, Stirling, and Glasgow areas. Our very popular residential motorcycle training course means that we even have students travelling from all over Scotland including the highlands and Islands and even down into the Scottish Borders!

Reasons to choose ProScot

Local Test Centre

Unlike most training schools we have a Multi-Purpose Test Centre (MPTC) within half a mile of our motorcycle training centre. This means no time wasted travelling trying get to the test centre, you will also be able to do all your motorcycle training within the area you will be tested in. Module 1 (MOD 1) will take place at the MPTC and Module 2 (MOD 2) will take place out on the roads within Kirkcaldy. Beware of schools who are further away from the test centres. They often cut corners and give you no pre-test warm up before your MOD1 and MOD2 tests. They simply drop a bike off at the test centre and expect you to make your own way there! In some cases you can even end up sitting your test in an unfamiliar area.

This is a gentle introduction to learning to ride to see if you like it first before committing to a full CBT. You can learn the basics on a 50cc automatic scooter or manual 125cc.

CBT course

The Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) course is a one-day introductory course which validates your provisional licence, it teaches you basic machine control and road craft. The course enables you to ride up to a 50cc if you are 16 or over. Or a 125cc if you are 17 or over. It is not a motorcycle test; you must still display L plates and cannot carry a pillion passenger or ride on a motorway.

Michael Cipriani

I was able to go from my CBT to full license in under 2 months, having never been on a bike larger than a 125. All instructors involved were clear, helpful and each brought their own unique style which helped in my opinion.
