Lothian Motorcycle Training offers four categories of training, each of which are specifically tailored to meet the needs of the student. During training, our students abilities are monitored and recorded by our DSA qualified instructors, ensuring that each student continues to progress. It ensures that they receive sufficient feedback and coaching, with the emphasis on developing their motorcycling skills, not just passing a test.
