MOD 1 motorcycle test tips – Right Circuit (MOD 1 Academy)

MOD1 right circuit exercises

The MOD1 examiner will decide which circuit to use. There are subtle differences with each and it is important for candidates to be familiar with both MOD1 right circuit exercises and the left circuit. Each circuit includes manual handling, slow control and riding the circuit exercises – all of which are intended to emulate the demands of riding a motorcycle on the roads. The controlled stop shows stopping control as it would be required at junctions. The emergency stop and avoidance exercise demonstrate more aggressive stopping skills. The slow control ride, slalom and figure-of-eight allow the rider to demonstrate focused slow control skills, as they might be required in certain situations i.e. in slow moving traffic.

Understanding MOD 1 right circuit test

One of the benefits of the MOD 1 Academy is how it allows MOD 1 test candidates to visually experience both circuits (left and right). Whilst the ‘rules’ are the same, there are important differences between the two and test candidates are advised to book training school time to visit the Motorcycle Manoeuvring Area (MMA). This series of video overviews perfectly complements practical training, allowing candidates to conveniently ‘revisit’ each exercise.

The u-turn exercise simulates a turn in the road, as if turning between two kerbs & is if on a live road. [watch video]

15(R). Circuit rides

Riding the circuit video - motorcycle module one test - right circuit
Candidates must ride the circuit at least three times during the MOD1 test. Instruction & practice are vital. [watch video]

16(R). Controlled stop

Controlled stop exercise during module one motorcycle test (right circuit)
This exercise has no speed requirements & candidates are usually taught to treat this like a normal junction. [watch video]

17(R). Emergency stop

MOD 1 Emergency stop
Candidates must observe specific speed requirements. Professional emergency stop training & practice is essential  [watch video]

18(R). Avoidance

VideoBiker answered all my questions

The Module One Academy videos were extremely useful and supported my preparation for taking the Module One test. The videos enabled me to understand the exercises without having to think about riding the bike at the same time. I was able to take in small chunks of information at my own pace and could fit this around other commitments. [more]
