A vast majority of my licensed drivers taking retests or attempting their second level N test struggle to judge the speeds of approaching motorbikes. It seems a thinner profile as compared to a car affects their judgement.
A smaller percentage completely miss seeing the motorcycle. Missing motorcycles and cyclists is more common with brand new first-level drivers.
Additionally when following a motorcycle extra distance is a must to avoid smashing into the bike following a sudden stop by the bike. WHY? The bike stops MUCH faster than a car.
We help all drivers solve this with a 6 Highways Scanning technique that breaks the habit of only-looking-for-cars.
