Jorge Lorenzo Open link in a new window, the former MotoGP Open link in a new window world champion, has been riding his race motorcycles for as long as anyone can remember, but it is only since yesterday that Lorenzo is allowed to legally ride a motorcycle on the streets of Spain.


Spain, like most European countries, have very strict licensing laws, requiring several exams to be taken before you are granted your motorcycle license. Starting with a test of the Rules of the Road, followed by mandatory instructions on riding a motorcycles, followed by a test on a special platform (where they test your maneuvering, braking, and other items), followed by more mandatory instructions, followed by the practical test; riding on the streets.

The tests are not easy, and have a very high failure rate. Just because Jorge is a world champion, doesn't automatically qualify him for the license. Particularly the street riding exam can be difficult, since you do not know what you are facing. Riding 1 kilometer per hour over the speed limit is enough to disqualify you.

So, Jorge passed in one go, and can now enjoy riding a real motorcycle..... Congratulations Jorge, well done. Thumbs Up Smiley

So, where's your first ride going to be?
