UK's most comprehensive Module One (MOD 1) tips video guide
The Module One Academy offers comprehensive on-line Module One video resources and has been designed to enhance Module One motorcycle training for learner riders who are preparing for their Module One motorcycle test. Along with this Academy, it is the perfect compliment to Direct Access (DAS), but does not substitute instructor-led training.
How does the Module One Academy work?
The Module One (MOD1) Academy allows test candidates to visually experience all aspects of a Module One test. A full series of MOD 1 test videos offers a point-of-view riders experience, plus an examiners view and complete animation of every MOD 1 exercise. MOD 1 video is complemented by instructor safety tips, fact-sheets, progress tests and a knowledge enhancing MOD 1 audio guide. Participants gain a thorough understanding of MOD1 ahead of their practical MOD1 motorcycle training – increasing the probability of first-time test pass.
Designed to enhance instructor-led practical MOD 1 training, all essential Module One preparation is covered and because of this, academy participants experience less novice rider stress. Academy participants also report increased confidence, safety, enjoyment, skill and faster readiness to book their MOD 1 motorcycle test.
