Practising MOD 1 slow control exercises
MOD 1 slow control exercises, within the relative safety of the Motorcycle Manoeuvring Area (MMA), are designed to test a candidates balance, coordination, steering, observation and control of a motorcycles basic controls (brakes, throttle, clutch and gears). These MOD 1 slow control exercises allow the examiner to assess a riders ability to safely deal with a variety of everyday riding scenarios. For example, whilst filtering or riding in slow moving traffic – skilled slow control and coordination of these basic motorcycle controls is vital.
The MOD 1 slow control exercises are: parking-up, manual handling, slalom, figure-of-eight, slow control ride and the u-turn. Combined, these exercises allow the examiner to build a reliable picture of a candidates slow control skills and ability to proceed safely to Module Two. Of these exercises, the u-turn is commonly believed to be the most challenging.
Practice and professional motorcycle training go hand-in-hand with MOD 1 success. Test centre familiarity with these exercises is associated with higher first-time pass rates. The Module One Academy offers comprehensive MOD 1 video resources that ideally complement instructor led training and boosts candidate familiarity with all aspects of MOD 1.
