The new motorcycle test is a joke

Published: 13 July 2009

I have finally given up trying to pass this module 1 motorcycle driving test after falling off practicing.

I cannot believe that the DSA have accepted a European standard which requires learner riders to exceed the Uk 30mph basic speed limit in order to pass.

Apart from my injuries sustained off road practicing I have heard about many other learner riders being injured trying to pass this ridiculous standard.

When will somebody listen to us and do something. I have done 7000 miles on the road without incident and have only come to grief trying to pass the new swerve test.

My bike is 125cc and I am forced out of my safe comfort zone trying to achieve the speed required.

I will have to continue riding on L plates and will not take this test again until it is changed. Who can we turn to for support?
