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
an eyesight test
road riding including stopping, an angle start (pulling out from behind a parked vehicle) and a hill start, where possible
10 minutes of independent riding, when you’ll be asked to ride a route following traffic signs or a series of directions, to see how you make decisions while riding.
While you’re riding on the road, the examiner will give you directions using a radio. They’ll normally follow you on a motorbike.
Almost everyone gets nervous about their motorbike test: you’ve done months of preparation and you really want to pass. But 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.
If you fail, your examiner will explain the faults and give you a copy of the riding test report. At a Module 2 test, you can ask your trainer to be there when you’re given your feedback.
You’ll have to wait at least three working days before you can retake Module 1. You can’t take Module 2 until you’ve passed Module 1 so, if you need to, change the date of your Module 2 test. Remember, you can only change the date if it’s more than three working days away.
If you fail Module 2, you’ll have to wait 10 working days before you can retake the test.
If you’re retaking either module, show your trainer the riding test report and follow their advice to correct the faults. Practise as much as you can ready for your retake.
