New Road Safety Statement from the Department for Transport has some significant changes for motorcyclists
The excerpt below is taken from the DfT's Road Safety Statement 2019. The changes are subject to parliamentary time, which given the Brexit situation could be some time. Even so they mark some significant changes and will have an impact on new riders.
• strengthened standards of training for motorcycle instructors and how they are quality assured - this means quality assuring all approved motorcycle training courses (including CBT, DAS and any future Progressive Access Training courses);
The DVSA will also improve training through developing a framework/syllabus to encourage riders who complete CBT but do not go on to take full test training, to undertake further training aligning with the Wheels to Work scheme and Riding for Better Business initiatives."
