Motorcycle test and training review

10 June 2010

Roadsafe welcomes the recent announcement that there is to be a review of the UK motorcycle testing and training regime. The two-part motorcycle test was introduced in April 2009 to meet the requirements of the second EU Directive on driving licences.

The Minister ordered the review after listening to concerns from motorcycle groups and visiting a test centre to look at the testing procedure in more detail. Ways to improve training will also be considered.
