All premier-class riders will have one post-season test at Valencia on November 8, then two pre-season tests (Sepang and Portimao) - with Rookie Augusto Fernandez also eligible for the Sepang Shakedown - before the start of the 2023 world championship, in Portugal, on March 26.

Thereafter, two Official in-season MotoGP tests will be held, following the Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez on May 1 and then the San Marino Grand Prix at Misano on September 11.

Aprilia’s loss of concessions means that, like the other four remaining manufacturers (following Suzuki’s exit) their race riders Aleix Espargaro, Maverick Vinales, Miguel Oliveira and Raul Fernandez cannot take part in any private tests.

The full list of 2023 test dates for the MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 classes is as follows:
