£77 million of bike test centres scrapped

A controversial off-road part of the motorcycle test is to be scrapped under Government proposals announced this morning. From the end of next year, learners will have to take just one practical test instead of two, according to Road Safety Minister Mike Penning.  It will be conducted entirely on-road and offered at a greater number of sites across the country...

Post test training

Post test training, having compulsory training after passing the test refers to the 3rd Eu Directive coming to us in 2012. Can't wait to see what a balls up the DSA make of this one.

Muppets !

So after the massive problems caused by government insistance on these new test centres. Where the government refused to listen to anyone elses concerns about their basic need or viability. Riding instructor business went bust or stopped trading as a result. This damaged bike sales. The new test centres caused massive problems !

Now just because it suits their own monetary needs or greeds, the new test centres that were rammed down everyones throats are not needed anymore.

What a total and absolute bunch of muppets.

All's well that ends well

At least they DID listen, even if it took a while.  The whole 31mph idea was ridiculous, its good to see some common sense coming back.  I think this move should be welcomed.

Most trainees fail on the slow manovers what is frustrating is perfectly good riders failing the test without any minors just because they were not at 50kph at one particular point of the test. Looking forward to tests on the roads no more emergency stops at hi revs in second gear. Hopefully people will want to learn to ride again rather than pass the gauntlet of tests
