Motion text

That this House believes the European Third Driving Licence Directive was drafted without due consideration for good road safety practice, will introduce a second motorcycle test with little or no effect on road safety and will make a motorcycle licence a complicated and expensive affair compared with a car licence; further believes that this will reduce commuter motorcycling, creating greater congestion and more pollution, while risking jobs in UK motorcycle manufacturers such as Triumph Motorcycles; and calls on Her Majesty's Government to use its presidency of the European Union to oppose the second motorcycle test and changes to motorcycle licence access ages.
