1. Overview

The motorcycle practical riding test is designed to see if you:

  • can ride safely in different road and traffic conditions
  • know the Highway Code and can show this through your riding ability

You’ll pass your riding test if you show the required standard. There are no pass or fail quotas.

The rules for the types of moped or motorcycle you can use for your test changed on 19 January 2013.

You’ll need to have passed your theory test before taking your practical test.
