Off-Road Motorcycle Manoeuvre Test
As a result of a European Directive, the Driver and Vehicle Agency had originally planned to introduce a new off-road motorcycle manoeuvres test during April 2008.
However, following representations made by some in the motorcycle industry and other interested parties, the Minister has agreed that the off-road motorcycle manoeuvres test will now be introduced in September 2008, in-line with the remainder of the United Kingdom.
It has also been decided that the requirement for the wearing of protective clothing by trainees and test candidates during the off-road motorcycle manoeuvres test will be the same as on the on-road practical motorcycle test. However, DVA will continue to highly recommend that all motorcyclists, both trainee and qualified, wear suitable protective clothing whilst riding on-road or during the off-road test.
Further information about the test will be issued in due course.
