Additional information for motorcyclists

Practical tests of categories A1, A2 and A are organised depending on the weather conditions.

  • Clothing

    During the test, we ask the examinees to take care additionally of:


    • charged mobile phone and hands-free device (headphones);
    • brightly coloured vest with reflective elements (if there are no such elements on the clothing).


    During the test, the examinee needs to have the following special clothing:


    • safety helmet;
    • elbow, knee and shoulder protection;
    • gloves;
    • boots.

    IMPORTANT. You will not be able to take the test without proper protection.


    Appropriate clothing is that is designed to protect a motorcyclist riding on the asphalt or concrete coating:


    • helmet – certified safety helmet for motorcyclists with integrated eye protection or motorcyclist goggles;
    • elbow, knee and shoulder protection – leather, textile or denim trousers strengthened with abrasion-resistant material, and the jacket with integrated elbow, knee and shoulder protectors, or removable elbow, knee and shoulder protectors – ‘armor‘;
    • gloves – abrasion-resistant gloves that protect the palms and knuckles and cover the hand;
    • boots – motorcyclist boots with a hard sole, that are resistant to abrasion and cut. The label of quality boots contains a note about the compliance with the standard EN 13634.


    Examples of inappropriate clothing:


    • a helmet that is improperly sized, defective, without eye protection or additional protective goggles, or with poorly transparent eye protection;
    • elbow, knee and shoulder protection or clothing that are not intended for a motorcyclist (for roller skaters or those practicing other sports), improperly sized or with defective fasteners;
    • ski gloves, motocross, work or other gloves, which are not intended to protect against friction to the asphalt or concrete coating;
    • casual shoes or sneakers.
  • Special manoeuvres

    Practical test consists of two parts:


    • special manoeuvres in the driving lot;
    • driving on the real public road.


    In the driving lot, the examinee is tested for ability to:


    • control the motorcycle with the engine switched off;
    • ride in a narrow lane straight at the same speed when an examiner is walking slowly (about 1 m/s) next to the examinee;
    • ride by performing an eight-shaped manoeuvre;
    • slowly and quickly ride by performing a snake manoeuvre without stopping, between six cones arranged in one line;
    • bypass an obstacle at a speed of at least 50 km/h;
    • accelerate at a speed of 30 to 40 km/h and stop at the specified place;
    • take a small radius turn to the left or right;
    • brake when driving at a speed of at least 50 km/h.
