The statement in June 2018 explained that work was in progress on proposals to strengthen the compulsory basic training regime for learner motorcyclists, to ensure a lifetime of safe riding for all riders. The Department and DVSA are working and continue to work to bring these forward including liaising with stakeholders and identifying any areas which may require further consultation.

The forthcoming refreshed Road Safety Statement will focus on four key priority groups including motorcyclists, rural road users, young road users and older road users.
