Practical motorcycle test

New practical motorcycle/bike test - Module 1

You must provide all of the following valid documents:
  • your driving licence with the correct provisional entitlement - both the photocard and counterpart document or a valid UK passport to support a paper licence
  • your compulsory basic training (CBT) certificate (DL196)
  • your motorcycle theory test certificate

    If you hold a full moped licence and wish to upgrade to a full motorcycle licence, or if you are 21 years old and wish to upgrade your motorcycle licence, you are exempt from the CBT and theory test.

On the day of your module 1 test, you will be asked by the examiner to demonstrate your riding ability on either the left-hand or right-hand circuit. The standard off-road layout may change because of local conditions on the casual sites.
Module one includes the following specified manoeuvres and generally takes around 20 minutes to complete: 
  • wheeling the machine and using the stand
  • doing a slalom and figure of eight
  • cornering, hazard avoidance and controlled stop
  • U-turn
  • a slow ride
  • the emergency stop

More about motorcycle practical test specific manoeuvres - 
Emergency stop exercise
An emergency stop is given on every motorcycle practical driving test and can be given at any time during the practical test. The candidate will be told the route to take and the examiner will demonstrate the signal that will be given.

Wheeling / stand exercise
The candidate will be asked to position the machine alongside the kerb and put it on its stand, then take the machine off the stand and wheel it across the road in a 'U' turn. (Either a centre or side stand is acceptable, but a machine without a stand is not suitable for the purposes of the test).

U-turn exercise
Via the radio, the examiner will ask the candidate to ride the machine back across the road. The candidate will be asked to move off from a parked position and to turn the machine around to face the opposite way, within the road width.

Slow ride exercise
If the candidate has not had the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to control the machine at slow speed e.g. at junctions, they will be asked to ride as if in slow-moving traffic as a separate exercise.

There is a minimum speed requirement of 50 kilometres per hour (approximately 32 miles per hour) for the hazard avoidance and emergency stop exercises.

If you demonstrate riding skills of a dangerously incompetent level during module 1, you will not be allowed to take module 2. 

If you pass module 1 you will receive a test pass certificate which you must bring with you when you take module 2.
