A French court has ruled that roadworthiness tests for motorbikes must be introduced from 1st Oct, but there is no certainty it will happen.
Arising from a European Directive in 2014, safety tests for two-wheelers of more than 125 cm3 were to be introduced throughout the EU by 1st January 2022.
As with other vehicles in France, the test is required 4 years after the first registration of a motorbike and then at 2-year intervals. Quads and four-wheeler vehicles that can be used on the road without a driving licence are also covered by the law.
