Increasing the age limit for obtaining a light motorcycle driver’s licence from 16 to 18 years is expected to result in a considerable reduction in crash involvement among 16- and 17-year-old riders of powered two-wheelers and 3- or four-wheeled mopeds. For crashes resulting in death or severe injury the reduction is estimated at about 36 %. If the age limit were increased, only about half of those who prefer a light motorcycle, would consider choosing a moped instead. The results are based on an internet survey among around 3500 16- and 17-year-old holders of a moped or light motorcycle licence.
