1000 protest licence law

1 of 1

A thousand motorcyclists rode in convoy through Birmingham on Satruday, July 1, 2006 to protest the 3rd European Licensing Directive, which threatens the future of biking.

The laws include limited Direct Acess to those over 24, rather than the current limit of 21, and introducing a practical test at every stage towards a full licence for younger riders, increasing thee cost and hassle of getting into motorcycling.

The ride was addressed by MAG's Director of Public Affairs, Ian Mutch, and by West Midlands MEP Mr Philip Bradbourn OBE, who supports MAG's stance on the directive. Mr Bradbourn sits on the EU Committee for Transport and Tourism and has been gathering support from other MEPs for the withdrawal of the motorcycling part of the licensing directive.
