DSA demonstrate they are up to speed!

The DSA have just released the bikes that they have approved as test suitable for the new licensing categories that come into forceJan 19th 2013.

Interestingly they state:

For machines not on this list or where an individual machine has been restricted to comply with the minimum
test vehicle requirements it will be accepted for test providing certified proof of compliance or restriction is
available for the examiner.


Unfortunately they haven't managed to include any bikes from those barely known manufacturers, HONDA and BMW, but as a way of proving how closely they keep their fingers on the pulse of motorcycling, you'll be delighted to know that a Brough Superior is an approved test vehicle....

See the whole list here:

Wow, so many of those bikes I've never even heard of across the pond.

I wonder how many people would have their license in the USA if they had to go through the rigorous training you do in the UK and other countries in Europe.

I think we'd see more driving while unlicensed tickets.
