Adding Insult to Injury

BBC News is reporting an extra 'dimension' to the DSA MPTC fiasco.

It seems that the motorcycle test fee was increased in price, coincidentaly with the introduction of the new off-road test.

I say 'coincidentaly', because DSA are saying that the test fee was to be increased anyway, not because of the extra time & facilities at the new Multi-Million Pound, Multi-Purpose Test Centres.

So the test fee has increased - from £60 - £80 - despite the six month delay to the introduction of the new extended motorcycle test.

As you might imagine, riders are not pleased at the additional cost - for no apparent benefit.

Dave Sharp is from the Motorcycle Action Group.

He said: "I think it's appalling that riders who are perhaps short of money are not going to be refunded.

"It would make a big difference to those individuals and I think it's totally unethical."
