The Module 2 on road test

During days 1 and 2 of your training leading up to your MOD1 test you will complete around 5hrs of riding on the road, during this time we work on the skills required to pass your MOD2, we then work on MOD2 for the remainder of your course.

The MOD 2 Motorcycle Test consists entirely of riding on the road being followed by a DVSA examiner and lasts around 35 min. Approximately 10 min of the test involves riding independently – for example, following road signs to a specific destination.

The independent ride element is designed for you to demonstrate your multi-tasking abilities, riding safely whilst reading road signs and markings.

In order to take a Module 2 Test you will need to have a valid CBT certificate, Motorcycle Theory Test certificate and Module 1 pass certificate.

Your eyesight will be checked – the examiner will require you to read a number plate from a distance of 20 metres for vehicles with a new-style number plate; 20.5 metres for vehicles with an old-style number plate. This will be from a set distance from a parked car or a number plate fixed on a wall. New-style number plates start with two letters followed by two numbers, eg AB12 ABC.

You will be asked some Motorcycle Test questions at the beginning of the test. These are colloquially known as the ‘show me/tell me’ questions, plus a question about carrying a pillion passenger. These questions represent 1 rider fault (minor) so don’t panic you will not fail if you get a question wrong.

The questions are all available to download below

If during the test you think that you have messed things up, don’t panic but continue riding as the examiner asks you to. 

During the test rider faults can be accrued for minor mistakes – such as missing an observation – more than 10 rider faults mean that you will not pass. If you accumulate several of them of the same type (but fewer than 10) then you still may not pass, especially if these represent a systemic fault.

If you fail your Module 2 test then you will have to wait 10 working days before you can take the test again. Please bear in mind that all the certificates (CBT, Theory and Module 1) have varying life spans and they must all be valid for you to be able to retake the test.

Things to bring with you:

  • Your photocard UK driving licence.
  • Your CBT certificate.
  • Your Theory Test pass certificate
  • Your Module 1 test pass certificate
  • Suitable clothing for riding a motorcycle: hard-wearing jeans (not thin cotton trousers, tracksuit bottoms or leggings); sturdy footwear (not flimsy plimsolls or lightweight fashion shoes) – ideally which provide some ankle protection, such as work boots, strong walking boots or similar; glasses or contact lenses if needed.
  • Remember that you are going to be outside – so consider wearing layers if it is going to be cold.
  • You are welcome to bring your own riding gear, although we can provide jackets, helmets, gloves, waterproof trousers and hi-viz bibs
