MOD 1 Emergency stop

Top tips - MOD 1 emergency stop

With the emergency stop, the speed requirements are: 19 mph (30 km/h) in the curve and 32 mph (50 km/h) at the speed camera. Students should ride towards the curve at 20 mph. This reduces the need to brake and makes it easier to line up for the best positioning during and exiting the curve. Look up, ahead and use using peripheral to locate the cones. Exiting the curve, look down the site and towards the four blue cones.

Be aware of how the weather can impact on braking and stopping distances. Ensure that this exercise has been thoroughly practised. Sometimes a second attempt will be allowed if the student fails to reach the required speed. To carry out the emergency stop:

  • 1st gear & carry out rear observations
  • Look & ride forward. 2nd gear & max 20 mph
  • In curve, position 1 mtr from red cones
  • Avoid braking & maintain 19 mph in curve
  • At centre point, look for 2nd cone (as a guide)
  • Turn towards blue cones to straighten exit
  • Accelerate & maintain at least 32 mph
  • Examiner will raise hand to start emergency stop
  • Power off & carry out emergency stop
  • Once stopped, select 1st & await instructions
  • Examiner may instruct you to move forward
  • 1st gear, carry out observations & move forward
  • Stop, select neutral & await instructions
