Full unrestricted Category A Licence

ProScot's Direct Access (DAS) Training Course is only available for riders aged 24 years and over or for those riders who have held a full A2 licence for more than 2 years, the latter stages of this course are conducted on our larger full power (72Bhp) SUZUKI SV 650cc motorcycles.

To obtain a full unrestricted category A motorcycle licence, you must successfully complete Part 1, which is Compulsory Basic Training (CBT); pass the motorcycle theory test; and undergo Direct Access training which is split into two modules.

Module 1 - 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 Direct Access Training Course will prepare you fully for Module 1 and includes practicing at the MPTC before sitting your Module 1 test.

Module 2 - a 35-minute on-road test conducted by the DVSA which assesses your ability to ride in traffic. ProScot's Direct Access Training Course provides on-road training and mock tests to prepare you fully for the Module 2 test.

Passing your Module 1 and Module 2 tests on a motorcycle with a minimum of 595cc and a minimum power output of 67bhp will give you a full category A licence, allowing you to ride any motorcycle without any restriction of power.

ProScot's Direct Access Training Courses use the latest Suzuki SV650 (supplied by Cupar Motorcycles), fitted with a complete crash protection system for your safety. This motorcycle offers a combination of fantastic handling, great brakes and a 72bhp power output - all in a lightweight, novice-friendly package. In fact, these bikes are so much fun, several of our students have bought one after passing their test.

Clothing rules

The Driving & Vehicle Licencing Agency (DVSA) state you must wear appropriate clothing for test (we have extended this to cover all training from Intro to CBT to Mod 1/2 and tests):

  • a motorcycle helmet that meets British safety standards (this doesn't apply if you're Sikh and wearing a turban)
  • motorcycle boots or other sturdy footwear that provides support and ankle protection
  • textile or leather motorcycle trousers or heavy denim trousers
  • a textile or leather motorcycle jacket or a heavy denim jacket with several layers underneath
  • motorcycle gloves

Three Courses Available

1. ProScot's 7 hour Super Short Course (SSC) is aimed at very experienced riders who completed our Fast Track CBT in less than 5 hours to a high overall standard. Course attendees will already have experience riding a larger heavier motorcycle (typically 600cc or larger) and have a full driving licence.

2. Pro-Scot's 11 hour Short Course (SC) is aimed at experienced riders with a full car licence who completed our Fast Track CBT in less than 6 hours to a good overall standard. Attendees will have previous experience riding bikes up to at least 125cc and have a full driving licence.

(Due to the high standard of our CBT's, unfortunately we cannot accept students on our SSC and SC who have completed their CBT elsewhere.)

3. Our 19 hour Full Course is aimed at novice riders, provisional car license holders or rusty riders (anyone who has not ridden a motorcycle for a few years).
