The Cyprus Motorcycle Test:

Test BikeConsists of a short verbal theory test, in Greek or English, on traffic signs and the highway code, similar to that taken when applying for a provisional licence.

A practical test of skills and behaviour for motorcycles was introduced whereby the examiner would follow the student. However this was abandoned in most cases very quickly after its introduction. Therefore the test in Cyprus does not include an on road element in most cases.

The test therefore usually involves driving in the confines of the driving test center, slowly around a circuit of cones. You will be expected to carry out an emergency stop.

Test Bike

Opinion:- The test is totally inadequate for current road and traffic conditions and cannot be described as a test of skills and behaviour.

The Department of Transport has failed in their duty to ensure that the test is suitable for today’s traffic conditions. Until the matter is addressed the death toll will continue to rise. It is no surprise that the death rate is so high amongst motorcyclists in Cyprus.

Hiring a motorcycle for learner rider training or the motorcycle test.

To take the motorcycle test you must be in possession or have use of a suitable motorcycle. It is now legal to hire a motorcycle for the purpose of taking the test.

 

The test is specific to the category of the motorcycle on which the test is taken, that is A1, A2, A.

 

If you take your test on an automatic motorcycle or ATV and pass, you will only be able to drive automatics on your full licence. A pass on a motorcycle or ATV with a manual gearbox will enable you to drive manual and automatics.

Motor scooters

Are not a category but are either motorcycles or mopeds depending on their engine size and specification.

Changes to the Theory Test

The Department of Transport have put out to tender for the supply of computers required for adopting a UK style driving theory test for Cyprus. This has been promised for years and has yet to happen.
