Motorcycle safety courses - When you take a motorcycle safety course, you will get a course certificate. If you bring this certificate to a DriveTest centre, within six months, you do not need to take the M1 road test – you move directly to the next level (M2). You also will be able to take the second road test sooner, after 18 months instead of the standard 22. Taking an approved training program may entitle you to an insurance discount.
