The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has announced that training and testing for motorcycles will be able to resume in England only after being paused earlier in the year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) for motorcycles and mopeds and Direct Access Scheme (DAS) training for motorcycles only will resume on Saturday 4th July, while Module 1 and 2 testing for both motorcycles and mopeds will resume on Monday 13th July.  

The certification of instructors will also be able to begin again, and trainer theory tests for the DVSA enhanced rider scheme will resume as of Saturday 4th July.  

No announcements have yet been made about the resumption of training and testing in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  

Commenting, DVSA Chief Executive Gareth Llewellyn said: “It has been vital that lessons and tests only resume when safe to do so and in line with the government’s advice.  

“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.”
