All test cheats are drivers

Hundreds of learner drivers a year get someone else to take their test for them while not one motorcyclist attempts the scam, government figures show. Suspected impersonators sat 455 practical tests and 1469 theory tests in 2011/12 – an average of five a day - but all of the cheats were drivers. A Driving Standards Agency spokeswoman said: ‘I can...

Well, read bibickeybi's comment for a start and watch the news. This sort of thing crops up in the media from time to time, just like the insuance scams that take place. One Asian guy was in the news in the north west not long ago for braking for no reason and getting people to run into the back of him on a roundabout. He did it so many times, the workers in an office opposite saw it going on and called the police. It turned out he had done this around 200 times! Just how no-one in the insurance industry noticed this is amazing. Let me just add though I am not a racist as I have numerous friends from Asia etc and they are as good if not morally better than some English people I know. Given the choice, I would live next to an Asian as they have stronger family ties than our divorce-happy country and their children are usually far better behaved. Certainly better than my next door neighbours wild kids.!

One reason..??

One possible reason is that most would be motorcyclists have to train with a school. So they would be seen over a few days. A qualified rider would stand out a mile to a school instructor . Couple this with the fact that the school would book the test to take it on the school bike, it would not benefit any school to present an illegal rider. It would be interesting for the DSA to say how many of the "CHEATING" drivers presented themselves in their own cars..! Come on DSA Spokeswoman....give us a few more facts...!

Here they take your picture every time before you take a test, so it can be compared to the picture on file by facial recognition software, with those flagged for not matching subject to further identity verification.

ENOUGH...of this Asian bashing. No more vile racist stereo typing. This is supposed to be a forum for intelliegent, considered, researched and respectful discussions.

There are dishonest people from ALL walks of life. Criminality etc, does not differ between skin colour, backgrounds and gender.

As for Piroflip, there are Asian bikers albeit a small number but growing and thus should be encouraged. Current Asian bikers hail from both Muslim and Sikhs communities. All born and bred here in Blighty. And not forgetting Afro Carribean. Your racist term is misguided and bourne out of hatred and ignorance.

I am a British born Muslim motorcyclist and proud of it. I engage and integrate with everyone. Motorcycling in today's Britain is not an all inclusive "white man" club.

So please, EVERYONE, no more ignorant, racist and misguided comments. Let's enjoy what motorcycling does in our short lives. There will always be contentious matters that test us. So let's show solidarity and SHOUT NO TO RACISM IN BRITISH MOTORCYCLING.

Thank you.
