can anyone explain the procedures/requirements to get a license over there? I have a speech coming up in class on why us dumb americans should adopt a similar program to educate and improve rider's abilities, and eliminate 16 year olds buying litre bikes...cheers.
If you are over 21 you can go for direct access and ride any bike provided you pass a theory then practical exam. The practical isnt that easy to make sure your at a good standard before being let loose on anything you like.
If your under 21 you are restricted to bikes with a maximum of 33 bhp for your first 2 years riding.
