I would like to know how many motorcyclists have been involved in accidents, that go from slight injuries to deaths, 3 years before and 3 years after the new motorcycle license changes were introduced on 19 January, 2013.
This should also include details such as the type of licenses (A, A1, A2, Etc) and ages.
Thank you for your request.
