DSA guide supports new motorcycle test
The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has launched the new edition of The Official DSA Guide to Learning to Ride, which explains the standards required to complete the compulsory basic training (CBT) course and pass the new practical motorcycle test being introduced on 27 April.
The new motorcycle test is split into two parts. Module 1 will take place off-road and will include exercises designed to assess the rider’s ability to control their machine safely, including avoidance and emergency stop exercises. Module 2 will include an eyesight test, the safety check questions and at least 30 minutes of on-road riding, assessing the rider’s ability to safely interact with other road users.
