The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has published new guidance for rider training during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Training is largely prohibited for safety reasons during the new lockdownHowever, the DVSA has confirmed that it is possible to supervise someone in your household or support bubble while making an essential journey in England, Scotland and Wales. Separate standards apply in Northern Ireland and they can be found here 

Some training can take place in parts of Scotland that are designated as protection level three. At present, this does not apply to anywhere on the mainland and further information on the areas where it does apply can be found here. In these circumstances, the new guidance also includes information on working safely that was compiled with the assistance of MCIA Ride. 

Updated general guidance from the BMF for all bikers during the current COVID-19 lockdown can be found here.
