MOTORCYCLE testing and training in Scotland will begin to get back to normal this month, as the government confirms dates for both activities north of the border.

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and the Scottish Government have announced that from Wednesday 22 July 2020, a rider in Scotland can begin all types of theory testing and, importantly, all types of motorcycle training. Both theory tests and motorcycle training will be subject to additional safety measures to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

From Monday 3 August those riders looking to take their Module 1 or 2 practical motorcycle tests can also resume then.

Gareth Llewellyn, DVSA Chief Executive, said:

“It has been vital that lessons and tests only resume when safe to do so and in line with the government’s advice.

“We know this has been a tough time for the whole country including learners and instructors but I am pleased to announce the first step in restarting some of our services in Scotland.

“Tests for critical workers have continued during the lockdown and I would like to thank all those instructors and examiners who have continued to work to help deliver tests for those who have done so much to help us during this terrible pandemic.”
