Feeling nervous?

Almost everyone gets nervous about their motorbike test: you’ve done months of preparation and you really want to pass. To pass, you’ll need to keep your nerves under control.

Here are some tips to help you.

Don’t book your tests at times when you know other stressful things are happening, such as school exams.
Before the tests, make sure you get a few good nights’ sleep: you’ll feel more stressed if you’re tired.
Avoid too much caffeine before your tests: it might make you feel jittery and nervous.
Arrive at the test centre about 15 minutes before your test is due so you’re not hurried but you’re also not waiting too long.
Remember, your examiner wants to make sure you’re safe on the road. They’re not trying to catch you out. If there’s anything you’re not sure about, just ask.

Be positive: focus on passing your test rather than worrying about failing it.

  1. Wheel the moped or motorbike and use the stand.
  2. Complete a slalom and figure of eight.
  3. A slow ride.
  4. U-turn
  5.  A controlled stop
  6. An emergency stop
  7. Cornering and hazard avoidance.

 

Module 2 overview

This is the on-road module and it usually takes about 50 minutes. You’ll need to show your Module 1 pass certificate when you take your Module 2 test. You must use the same size and type of motorbike for both modules.

 

The module includes:
1. An eyesight test.

2. Safety questions.

3. Road riding including stopping, an angle start (pulling out from behind a parked vehicle) and a hill start where possible.

4. Besides this also 10 minutes of independent riding where you will ride a route following traffic signs or a series of directions, to see how you make decisions while riding.

5. Most importantly while you’re riding on the road, the examiner will give you directions using a radio. They’ll normally follow you on a motorbike.
