I noticed that in this weeks MCN newspaper on page 38. The following was printed in the section, THE LAW EXPLAINED... ( which is explaining next years new bike laws)...
Quote ] Already ride?
If you are 17 and on an A1 or A licence (125 or 33bhp bike) nothing changes. Unless you want to ride a big bike. [ End quote:
This section seems wrong because it implys that any one who is riding on a 33bhp licence will have to take another bike test to ride a bigger bike.
The printed text may well be a mistake on the part of the MCN newspaper. Or indeed I might have misunderstood what was wrote. Please read the section I am talking about and tell me if I am right or wrong.
I have a personal interest in this because my 18 year old son is currently on an A ( restricted licence) He has one more year left on his restriction before the licence will AUTOMATICALLY become a full licence in November 2013.
I know that a lot of young guys are trying to pass there restriction this year before January's deadline.
Therefore I think it's right to point out what I think is a printed mistake.
Please feel free if I have some how got hold of the wrong end of the stick. But please read page 38 first. Thanks.
