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.
