The Driving Standards Agency (DVSA) is reminding learner motorcyclists to wear suitable clothing when they take their motorcycle tests.

While most Motorcycle Trainers encourage their pupils to wear the best protective motorcycle gear that they can afford, some candidates aren’t following this advice.


DVSA doesn’t want to restrict candidates to wearing the most expensive protective motorcycle clothing.
However, DVSA’s examiners won’t ignore or condone riding a motorcycle or scooter while wearing unsuitable clothing.


Tests won’t go ahead if you are inappropriately dressed and you will lose your FEE.
Examiners might tell you that your test won’t go ahead if you arrive inappropriately dressed.
However, where possible, examiners will give you the chance to find suitable clothing within the time available.
DVSA won’t pay out-of-pocket expenses if your test is cancelled because of inappropriate clothing.


Guide to suitable clothing:


As a general guide the following is an indication of the minimum level of clothing acceptable:

motorcycle boots

sturdy footwear or boots that provide support and ankle protection

textile or leather motorcycle trousers

heavy denim trousers

heavy denim jacket with several layers underneath

textile or leather motorcycle jacket

motorcycle gloves


The following are examples of clothing that are not acceptable:


lightweight training shoes

canvas basket ball trainers

any form of clothing with areas of exposed skin

shell suit or lightweight tracksuit

distressed ripped jeans

lightweight fleece or hoody

no gloves or skiing gloves

In all cases it’s a legal requirement that riders wear an approved and correctly fastened motorcycle helmet with suitable eye protection (an exception is made for members of the Sikh religion wearing a turban).


Cases of inappropriate clothing:


Recently there have been cases where candidates have arrived unsuitably dressed for the practical test.
This has included wearing lightweight nylon shell suits, lightweight canvas training shoes, or wearing no gloves.

One of these cases resulted in the test not going ahead.
