Motorbiking in Europe – What you need to know before leaving.

Country by country,  a short guide to the key information you need to know before venturing abroad on your bike

 

 

In Germany and Spain, drivers with prescription lenses must carry a pair of glasses or spare lenses. In the Netherlands, regardless of the regulations of other countries, you must be 18 years old or older to ride a motorbike over 50 cc. In the Czech Republic, the driver must have an alcohol level of 0.0 and a carry replacement fuses for the bike. These are just some of the different requirements that apply to drivers in different European countries. And Italy appears to be one of the least regulated states. In short, harmonisation of traffic regulations across Europe is not a reality yet.
The most frequent requirements are the need to carry a reflective jacket and a first aid kit. But if you are about to travel abroad, we recommend that you read the regulations for your destination country carefully on the list we have compiled.
Among other things, we would like to point out that we have found different requirements for the same countries by browsing through various sites. In short, there seems to be some confusion on the subject, perhaps as a result of different national rules that have followed one another. Sometimes the official website of the country where the trip is planned comes to the rescue of the traveller, but not always.

About rules specific to the use of motorbikes there is a dedicated page of FEMA (European Federation of Motorcycle Associations). However, it is not always correct, and on several points, it is in contrast with that of single states authorities.

We will investigate this further to compile a comprehensive and up-to-date list.
But for the moment being, have a look at our quick list here below. When clear information is not available or contradicting information is present, we left the relevant category blank.

Obviously, you will be welcome to report errors and/or updates.
