DfT asks for your views on driving licence changes

The DfT wants your views about changes to the laws on driving licence acquisition and the motorcycle riding test.

The Department for Transport (DfT) has launched a consultation to get your views about changes to the laws on driving licence acquisition and the motorcycle riding test. 

The consultation is asking for views on things like:

  • Allowing candidates who pass their test in an automatic transmission vehicle to drive a manual vehicle (if they already hold a manual entitlement in another licence category)
  • Reducing the engine size of bikes that can be brought to an A2 motorcycle test

The consultation will be open for six weeks and will end on 23 March, 2021.

Find out more about the consultation and give your views.

    This change is well overdue with cars moving to electric etc more manufacturers are only making automatic cars. As we know if they pass in an auto at the moment they can only drive auto, LGV, and PCV tests were changed a few years ago allowing taking a test in an auto will also give you manual entitlement as long as you passed your car test in a manual.
