MOTOGP is a term used in the United Kingdom to refer to a motorcycle driving test that has been approved by the Department of Transport and given the all-clear from the authorities. It covers any motorcycle driving test other than those covered by the Pass Plus scheme. The MOTogP course covers a wide area including driving on the correct road surfaces, taking the vehicle through various bends and corners, use of hand signals to indicate safety, riding in a safe manner and passing tests at different times to all the participants. There are many things that a rider must know about when going for a MOT.
There are two types of classes, one is for new drivers of non-supergrand prix motorcycles and another is for super race bikes. Super prix motorcycles are those that have higher specification engines and greater displacement. On the other hand, super race bikes are those with higher engine displacement and greater weight. Both types of vehicles are subjected to a rigorous training regime during which time a complete understanding of all the rules is acquired along with knowledge of all the technical and safety aspects of motocross.
If you want to apply for a MOT, you must start by submitting your application form as well as details about your motorbike and your personal circumstances, such as how long you have been driving, any previous convictions and fines, the age of your bike and the age of your driver. You will also be required to give evidence of your knowledge and skills regarding the safe use of your vehicle, how to ride a moto2 or moto3 and any experience you may have gained from other areas of motorcycling. All these will be verified by examinations administered by MOT High Wycombe and MOT London, the governing body for motocross within the UK. Once you have successfully completed these requirements, you will be sent your MOT certificate.
If you wish to take part in the MOTOGP competition, then your best bet is to secure a place on one of the two test tracks that form part of the Grand prix series. Each track hosts a short-lived GP style test series between April and May each year and is open to all qualified motorcycle drivers of a particular category. The short-lived GP Asia event was last held in Singapore in April, but will be back on a permanent date in 2021. The schedule is determined by the schedule of the national motorbike GP in that country. In addition to the Singapore GP dates, international dates for the Grand prix motorcycle event may be affected by other international races taking place at the same time.
If you are looking for the perfect replacement for your old bike then the MOTOGP class is the perfect class for you. It has strict requirements on the criteria used to measure the safety and performance of each motorcycle engine. The class comprises a layout of four different classes, each with a maximum bore of 1,000 cc and an engine size of either under or over two litres. As part of the criteria for each class, the motorcycle must also have an exhaust system that meets certain regulations set out by the Motor Vehicle Excise and Development Authority (MVEDA).
Under the two-stroke category, there are two classes for motorcycles, the 600 cc class containing bikes with displacement sizes up to and including 6 litres and the 800 cc four-stroke class containing machines with displacement sizes greater than six litres. These bikes need to have air tanks rated at least eight litres and the engines need to be certified to a capacity of twenty-two litres. Both classes require engines to be certified by a member of the MOTOGP Board of Certification, who are based in the UK. Other countries may have their own certification bodies but in general all such certification bodies have to be accredited by the European Committee for Standardization.
