The current practical motorcycle test in Great Britain is modular, with the first of two modules testing candidates' control of their motorcycle in an off-road area during a series of low and higher speed manoeuvres. Concerns about the accessibility and safety of the module 1 test led the Road Safety Minister (in June 2010) to announce a review exploring the feasibility of a single event, on-road practical motorcycle test. TRL was commissioned to carry out research to support the review.

The recently published results of the three phase study can be found here:

It is necessary to click "Download" below the summary, then register with TRL (free of charge) to receive the 98 page pdf report. I used "n/a" for the required "Address 2" line.

Quite interesting and worth the trouble in my opinion.

A bit of background: TRL (previously TRRL and before that the RRL) has been carrying out research for 80 years, mainly road-biased (although it did some of the 'bouncing bomb' work during WWII).

Have a search through the list of publications - there are loads of motorcycle-related reports, including on training, conspicuity and attitude.
