UK Motorcycle MOT Inspection Manual

UK Motorcycle MOT Testing Guide (Classes 1 and 2)

(Motorcycle Testing)

Crown Copyright, sourced from VOSA/DVSA 4 March 2014

As can be seen from the comparison of the Manuals the MOT examination for motorcycles is considerably more basic than that for cars and light commercial vehicles.

This means  that the time taken for a motorcycle test is much less than that when inspecting a car or light commercial vehicle, which is why, at an ‘official’ fee of £29.65 applies for motorcycles, compared to £54.85 for cars. It is also of interest that the average failure rate for motorcycles is around 20%, as compared to 40% for cars and light commercial vehicles.
