‘Every driving test should include a bike question’

1 of 1

An insurance firm is petitioning the Government to make a motorcycle-related question part of every driving test.

Bennetts Insurance thinks it could help reduce casualties.

At the moment a bike-related question may or may not come up in the driving theory test. The petition says the matter should not be left to chance.

It says: ‘With questions currently selected at random, there is no guarantee that a question relating to the awareness of motorcyclists will arise in the current test format and this petition is set to challenge that.’

Hannah Squirrell, Bennetts’ Director of Marketing, said: “The petition has been approved by the government and we need to get at least 100,000 signatures in order to have this raised in the House of Commons.”
