DVSA has published the results and recommendations from the consultation on changes to the laws on driving licence acquisition and the motorcycle riding test.
The recommendations are:
- Any candidate who already holds a full manual licence entitlement for a car, lorry or bus who passes a car and trailer (B+E), medium sized lorry (C1), medium sized lorry and trailer (C1+E), minibus (D1) or minibus and trailer (D1+E) test, using an automatic vehicle, will get both the manual and automatic entitlements for that sub-category
- That the Minimum Test Vehicle Requirement (MTV) for motorcycles used for the A2 test be reduced from 395cc to 245cc, provided that the other MTV requirements are still met

Due legal processes must be followed, and if completed successfully, DVSA expects to amend the regulations in the new year.
