Overview of Module 1

"Laying the groundwork for your test journey."

The Motorcycle Module 1 Test includes a series of off-road exercises designed to assess your ability to control a motorcycle with confidence and safety. It's conducted at DVSA test centres and is the first of two practical tests required for a motorcycle license in the UK.

Preparing for the Test

"Preparation paves the way to success."

Preparation is key to passing the Module 1 Test. Familiarize yourself with the test format and exercises by reviewing official DVSA materials. Practice these maneuvers at a training centre or private area, focusing on control and precision.

The Test Exercises

"Showcasing your control and handling skills."

The test consists of several exercises, including a slalom, figure of eight, controlled stop, U-turn, emergency stop, and an avoidance exercise. Each exercise tests different aspects of motorcycle control and your ability to handle potentially hazardous situations on the road.

Common Pitfalls and How to Avoid Them

"Navigating challenges with ease."

Common pitfalls include not reaching the required speed for the emergency stop and avoidance exercises, incorrect execution of the U-turn, and losing control during the slalom or figure of eight. Practice extensively and seek feedback from instructors to hone your skills and confidence.

After the Test

"Moving forward, regardless of the outcome."

After completing Module 1, you'll receive immediate feedback and your test result. If you pass, you can move on to Module 2, focusing on road riding skills. If not, review the feedback, refine your skills, and rebook the test. Persistence and practice are key to success.
