New Motorcycle Test to be Introduced

Aug 17, 2007
If you are a motorcycle rider, you are probably already aware of the fact that starting next year in 2008 it will be a bit more difficult for you to obtain your motorcycle driving license. The reason why is that the Great Britain government has ascertained that the requirements for being able to operate a motorcycle must be raised, and in response to this they have implemented a new motorcycle training test.

Starting next year all potential motorcycle driving license holders must pass the new and improved motorcycle training test to be eligible for that license. Requirements are stricter, and there will be people who will be turned down for their motorcycle license simply because they do not meet the ability and eligibility requirements.

The new motorcycle training test follows more stringent requirements than the old one; for example, the potential licensee must undergo a series of examinations that consists of two halves.

The first half of the new motorcycle training test is not conducted on the main roads for safety purposes. This ensures that nobody who lacks the proper motorcycle operating skills endangers the safety and lives of common motorists that are on the road trying to get to work in time, just for a pupil to undergo a driving examination. This first portion of the test is a great deal like some of the regular driving license practical portions, with cones marking off the manoeuvres that must be taken to pass that portion of the exam.

Needless to say, if the applicant fails to demonstrate a proper ability to drive a motorcycle during this first portion of the motorcycle training test they will not be allowed to proceed to the next portion of the exam.

The second half of the new motorcycle training test in the UK consists of safely operating a motorcycle on the public roads and expressways with other cars, other motorcyclists, and even moped drivers and a load of pedestrians on the road with you as well. This is the applicant's chance to demonstrate their knowledge of traffic laws in the UK as pertaining to motorcyclists and motor vehicle drivers.

Both portions of the new motorcycle training test must be passed to the satisfaction of the exam proctor for the person's application for a motorcycle driving license in Great Britain will be even considered; if any part of their competency as a motorcycle driver is questionable in the slightest bit, the individual will not be issued a license.
