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

You are here: HomeAccount / MOD1 / MOD1 Right Circuit exercises explained

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.
