Restricted Access Course

Part II Training is necessary if you wish to gain a motorcycle licence and ride on the road - but first you must successfully complete your Compulsory Basic Training (CBT), and pass the motorcycle theory test.

There are two restricted licences one for those aged 17 and over and one for those aged 19 and over.

Aged 17 And Over Restricted Access (A1 Light Motorcycle Licence)

This licence is available for riders aged 17 and over. The training and test takes place on a 125cc motorcycle. This restricts the rider to a motorcycle of 125cc maximum. There is no natural progression, that is to say you are always restricted to a motorcycle of a maximum of 125cc and maximum power output of 14.6bhp unless you sit the appropraite test to gain access to a larger motorcycle at a later date. Part II Training is necessary if you wish to gain a motorcycle licence and ride a motorcycle on the road but first you must successfully complete Part I. Which is the Compulsory Basic Training (CBT), and pass the motorcycle theory test.

At ProScot, we use the latest Yamaha YS 125ccs for our A1 Restricted Access training. These great bikes - supplied by Alan Duffus Motorcycles - offer a combination of light weight, low seat height, secure handling and easy to operate controls in one of the best novice-friendly packages around.

Aged 19 And Over Restricted Access (A2 Medium Motorcycle Licence)

This licence is available for riders aged 19 and over. Initial training takes place on a 125cc motorcycle and then progresses onto our Suzuki SV 650 650cc motorcycles, which are restricted to 46.6 Bhp. We also have a restricted 650 with a lowered seat height, that can typically be ridden by those no shorter than about 5' 2". This licence restricts the rider to a motorcycle with a maximum power output of 46.6Bhp. There is no natural progression, that is to say you are always restricted to a motorcycle with a maximum power output of 46.6Bhp unless you sit the appropraite test to gain access to a larger motorcycle at a later date.

Accelerated Access

Accelerated Access is available for those riders who wish to progress from an A1 or A2 motorcycle licence to enable them to ride a larger more powerful motorcycle.

If you have held your A1 light motorcycle licence for a minimum of 2 years you can sit both parts of the motorcycle practical test (Mod 1 & Mod 2) on the appropraite motorcycle to get an A2 medium motorcycle licence.

If you have held your A2 licence for a minimum of 2 years you can sit both parts of the motorcycle practical test (Mod 1 & Mod 2) on the appropriate motorcycle to get a full category A motorcycle licence. For example if you passed your A2 medium motorcycle test aged 19, you can sit the two part motorcycle test to gain access to a full unrestricted category A motorcycle licence at age 21.

You do not need to wait a full 2 years to do Accelerated Access if you reach the appropriate age requirement to upgrade to either an A2 or A motorcycle licence. You will however need to re-sit your motorcycle theory test if it is no longer valid.

Part II Training consists of 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 Restricted Access Training Courses 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 Restricted Access Training Courses provide on-road training and mock tests to prepare you fully for the Module 2 tests.

Training for both Module 1 and Module 2 is flexible, with lessons available 7 days a week. At ProScot, we won't simply teach you how to pass the test. Our highly experienced motorcycle instructors will focus on turning you into a safe, competent all-round rider who is able to handle everything from slow speed motorcycle control to correct cornering techniques.

Passing your Module 1 and Module 2 tests on a 125cc motorcycle gives you a full A1 licence which restricts you to a motorcycle with a power output of no more than 125cc and 14.6Bhp. Passing Module 1 and Module 2 on our restricted ER650cc motorcycle gives you a full A2 licence which restricts you to a motorcycle with a power output of 46.6Bhp maximum, the restriction cannot be derived from a motorcycle with more than a 50% power reduction. That is to say the motorcycle could not have an unrestricted power output of 93bhp or more. this means that most Supersport 600cc motorcycle or high power motorcycles could not be restricted. A common choice here are motorcycles like the Suzuki Bandit 600.

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).
