The Motorcycle Test

We are one of the only training schools in the area to offer the unique experience of practising manoeuvres on the actual test site for the Module One test. We take the pressure off you when you choose to train with us by booking all of your motorcycle tests well in advance for you. All you need to do is turn up and enjoy the experience.

To help you prepare and pass the tests first time we have prepared two videos that give you all in information and tips that you need Module 1 Video and Module 2 Video.

If you want to pass your motorcycle tests and ride without L Plates on either a 125cc motorcycle (A1), a medium powered motorbike (A2) or a larger machine doing the Direct Access Scheme (DAS – A), you will need to take and pass both the Module One and Module Two motorcycle tests.

The Module One Test

The Module One Test is conducted at the Multi-Purpose Test Centre (MPTC), also called the Motorcycle Manoeuvring Area (MMA) in Garretts Green, close to our training facility in Birmingham. It is an off-road test whereby you have to successfully complete a series of manoeuvres.

Unlike many other motorcycle training schools, we have made special arrangements with the DVSA by booking training sessions at the weekend to use the actual test site for our students to practise Module One manoeuvres. This means that our students are comfortable with the layout of the course, confident with the procedure and are fully prepared before they take their Module One motorcycle test.

The motorcycle test takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and consists of the following manoeuvres:

  • On and off the stand
  • Wheel the machine
  • Slalom
  • Figure of eight
  • Slow ride
  • U-turn
  • Ride a Left or Right hand circuit
  • Controlled stop
  • 50 kph / 32 mph emergency stop exercise
  • 50 kph / 32 mph avoidance exercise

On The Day

We believe that test days should not involve training but merely to get you into the right frame of mind to concentrate on the test in hand. Some organisations give you a test in the afternoon of a full day training and charge you for the privilege, our policy is to ensure you are test ready, relaxed and in the correct frame of mind on the big day.

You will turn up at the office on test day, the instructor will check your documents to ensure you have them all and then take you for a ride to the test centre. On the way you will do some warm up exercises in the car park to get the feel back for the bike (if you’ve had some time off) and ensure you are ready for the manoeuvres, then you have some practice time for the higher speed exercises prior to test.

You will be taken to test and introduced to the examiner, ready and prepared for a first time pass. The timeframe you can expect to be with us will be between 3-4 hours. Our first time pass rate is above 90% because of our thorough training program.

How To Prepare For Your Mod 1 Test

We recommend that you use Video Biker as part of your learning strategy. By using their products you will develop a better understanding and knowledge for each motorcycle test, meaning that during your training and especially on test you will be much better prepared.

Module Two Test

The Module Two test is conducted on the road. It takes the form of a pursuit test with a DVSA examiner following, watching and assessing your riding ability. It also includes an independent ride where you will ride the motorcycle without directional instruction for a short period of time, known as the Independent Ride.

With a vast amount of experience and years of testing, the RMT Motorcycle Training instructors are aware of the diverse road layouts commonly used on test routes that are taken from the Redditch and Garretts Green test centre in Birmingham. This means we can fully train and prepare our students on the roads that are typically used under test conditions.

The Mod Two Training

The Module Two test lasts for approximately 45 minutes. It commences with an eyesight check followed by questions about carrying a pillion passenger and maintenance of your motorcycle. On your road test, the examiner will be assessing your riding on areas such as:

  • Varying speed limits
  • Junctions & roundabouts
  • Road positioning
  • Hill start and angle start
  • Dealing with other traffic
  • Dual carriageways
  • Separation distance
  • Country lanes (where applicable)

We use Redditch and Birmingham as our preferred motorcycle test centres for Module Two tests, but if required, we can accommodate you by taking you to a different test centre location.

ON THE DAY

As per Module 1 test, we do not believe in last minute training on test days, your test day should be relaxed and you should be calm enough to take the test, not have a mass of last minute information to disseminate because half of it was missed during your pre test guidance.

Again, you will turn up at the office on the day of your Module 2 test, the instructor will check your documents to ensure you have them all and then take you for a ride to the test centre. On the way you will follow the instructor while he gives you a commentary ride to settle down any last minute nerves and ensure your mind in on the job in hand.

You will be taken to test and introduced to the examiner, ready and prepared for a first time pass. The timeframe you can expect to be with us will be between 3-4 hours.
