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) Kawasaki ER6 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 53bhp 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 Kawasaki ER6Ns (supplied by Kirkcaldy Kawasaki), 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

Courses Available

3 Day Course - aimed at experienced riders with a full car licence. 

4 Day Course - aimed at novice riders, provisional car licence holders and anyone who's not ridden a motorcycle for a few years.

In the interests of safety (and in accordance with Driving Standards Agency requirements), ProScot reserves the right to prevent a student from proceeding onto a 650cc motorcycle if they're physically incapable of handling a larger machine or lack sufficient control to operate the bike safely. We have a lower seat height Kawasaki's but, in the rare instances where this bike is not suitable, the training and test can be carried out with the students own motorcycle providing it is suitable for this purpose.
