MOD 1 riding the circuit exercises

Following on from the slow control aspect of the MOD 1 motorcycle test are three ‘riding the circuit‘ exercises. These are: controlled stop, emergency stop and the avoidance exercise. These are sometimes termed the ‘speed’ exercises and are designed to assess a candidates competency with gears, throttle, steering, brakes, positioning, observation and general riding skill. Whilst these riding the circuit exercises share common requirements, there are some differences in speed requirements, which are measured with a speed camera. As with all aspects of the MOD 1 test, professional tuition and familiarity will always pay dividends. Many motorcycle training schools offer MOD 1 training that incorporates test centre practice and the VideoBiker MOD 1 Academy provides comprehensive online instructor narrated video overviews.
