Module One preparation

Module One preparation pays dividends

Good levels of Module One preparation, training and practice will always pay dividends. The Module One test is relatively complex and riders who lack familiarity, will in most cases struggle. Module One preparation extends to ensuring that minimum clothing requirements are met and that all required paperwork is organised. Candidates are also advised to understand how examiners classify faults and should know what to expect from the examiners briefing. Whilst the VideoBiker Module One Academy offers the most comprehensive on-line Module One video training resource, there is no substitute for professional motorcycle training.
