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.

What test do you need to pass?

To obtain a full motorcycle test it is necessary to pass a theory and the practical test which is split into two modules. It's all about making sure that you are well trained and safe on the roads while riding a motorcycle in Scotland or anywhere else for that matter.

The important thing is that you know how to handle a motorcycle and you are safe. With great motorcycle training from ProScot we will do everything we can to ensure that you are safe and can ride well enough to handle the roads.

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.
