To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport if he will publish the findings of the research commissioned by his Department, entitled In Depth Study of Motorcycle Training, due to have been completed in October 2007. (286963)

We plan to publish the findings of the in depth study of motorcycle training by October 2009. The study was largely complete by early 2008 and provisional results were taken into account by the Driving Standards Agency in the design of the new motorcycle test that was introduced in April 2009. The report is currently being finalised by the research contractor, mainly to ensure it reflects changes to the testing regime.
