Hours of Training
Obstructions refer to a wide range of situations and hazards. They include parked cars, road works, oncoming vehicles, open car doors, pedestrians, horses and anything else that hinders normal road position.
To minimise your risk, you must give adequate clearance by moving far enough away from the hazard. Always maintain a good distance away from hazards to allow time and space to make changes.
Where there are obstructions, the examiner needs to see good forward and rearward observations, along with good judgement, positioning, appropriate use of speed and adequate clearance around the obstruction.
If you need to move into the oncoming lane, use good forward vision and planning to ensure there aren’t any oncoming vehicles. Always locate a safe return route back to the correct position, these movements will require lifesavers prior to altering position.
Most motorcycle test routes include roads where obstructions are common and manoeuvring to clear obstructions correctly is essential. The test is designed to assess your ability in a wide range of situations to ensure you see and deal with obstructions correctly and safely.
Your local training provider will prepare you to deal safely with different situations. They will have local area knowledge and experience to prepare you for the Module Two motorcycle test.
