The new motorcycle test


Don't believe all the bad press about the Module 1 test. Most of our trainees have said the same when asked their thoughts after the test, they all said it was much easier than they thought it would be. Our full size Module 1 training site gives you the training and experience you need to pass first time.

The new motorcycle test aims to improve the standard of road safety for motorcycle and moped riders. This user group has been identified as having a high risk of injury or worse, this is particularly the case for young and inexperienced riders.

The new test will be completed in two modules. The specified manoeuvres conducted at specific speeds will be tested in Module 1 on safe off-road sites and take on average 22 minutes.

These specified manoeuvres are:

  • Manual handling of the motorcycle.
  • Four manoeuvres carried out at slow speed
  • At least two manoeuvres carried out at higher speed, of which one exercise should be in second or third gear, at a speed of at least 30 km/h (approx. 19 mph) and one exercise avoiding an obstacle at a minimum speed of 50 km/h (approx. 32 mph)

At least three manoeuvres carried out at higher speed, which should be in second gear, at a speed of at least 30 km/h (approx. 19 mph) and one exercise avoiding an obstacle at a minimum speed of 50 km/h (approx. 32 mph)

At least two braking manoeuvres, including an emergency brake at a minimum speed of 50 km/h (approx. 32 mph)

On the day of the Module 1 test, candidates will be asked by the examiner to demonstrate their riding ability on either the left-hand or right-hand circuit. Please note that the standard off-road layout may change due to local conditions on the casual sites. Also required will be your DL196 Certificate (CBT), a valid theory test certificate and your driving licence. Remember documents, no test!

Those candidates who have demonstrated riding skills of a dangerously incompetent level during Module 1 will not be permitted to take the Module 2 test.


Those candidates who have passed Module 1 will receive a Test Pass Certificate which they must bring with them when they take Module 2. Candidates must also take the Module 2 test on the same category and size of bike as that used for taking the Module 2 test.

Module 2 of the test will be about 57 minutes in length and will consist of the eyesight test, road safety questions and at least 30 minutes of road riding. consisting of a road ride covering a variety of road and traffic conditions and will also include normal stops, hill and angle starts.
