MOD 1 Riding the circuit

Top tips - MOD 1 riding the circuit

There are three MOD 1 riding the circuit exercises. These are: (1) Controlled stop, (2) Emergency stop and, (3) Avoidance. The common factors shared by all three MOD 1 riding the circuit exercises are:

  • Select 1st gear & carry out rear observations
  • Riding towards curve, select 2nd gear (max 20 mph)
  • Avoid braking in curve (maintain 19 mph)
  • Entering the curve, aim for 1 mtr from red cones
  • Two cones past centre, turn towards blue cones
  • On exit from curve, aim for 1 mtr from blue cones
  • Avoid fixating on cones. Look up & ahead

MOD 1 riding the circuit - speed requirements

Controlled stop
In the circuit: 19 mph (30 km/h) – advised
At the speed camera: >30 mph (>48 km/h) – advised

Emergency stop
In the circuit: 19 mph (30 km/h) – required*
At the speed camera: 32 mph (50 km/h) – required

Avoidance
In the circuit: 19 mph (30 km/h) – required*
At the speed camera: 32 mph (50 km/h) – required

* The advised and required speed requirements whilst ‘in the circuit’ are visually assessed by the examiner, but are not subject to a speed camera. Speed camera assessment happens ‘on the straight’ i.e. after the curve.
