  • ADHERING TO SPEED LIMITS

    In conjunction with understanding road signs and road markings, the examiner will be assessing your ability to see and stick to the speed limits. A wide variety of speed limits will be encountered during a Module 2 motorcycle test from 30-70 mph where possible.

    The examiner on the Module 2 motorcycle test will need to see you handle a variety of road situations and watch how you deal with the speed limits. Just because a road speed is shown, does not mean it is a target or challenge to reach that speed.

    Although the examiner will expect you to make progress, you will be expected to ride at a speed that is appropriate to the road and traffic conditions. The speed limit may be too fast in certain situations,

    ADHERING TO SPEED LIMITS
  • WHEN TO REDUCE SPEED

    You need to be aware of the road surface when riding and you have to take into account the various weather conditions too. They all play a part in your consideration of how to ride and what speed to use in different situations.

    The traffic flow will also play a big part in your riding speed, your ability and experience will be taken into consideration by the examiner. They will not expect you to put yourself in danger by trying to ride at the speed limit when conditions are not safe to do so.

    It is possible while you are riding to miss speed limit signs. In these circumstances, look at your surroundings and try to gauge what the speed limit may be! For example, you may be able to judge the speed if there are houses and driveways at the side of the road or a country lane with no visible hazards. 

    Failure to observe speed limits and/or riding at speeds that exceed your ability will likely result in a test fail.

    WHEN TO REDUCE SPEED
  • KEY POINTS TO REMEMBER

    • Always observe speed limits
    • Do not see speed limits as targets
    • Do not ride at speeds that exceed ability
    • Excessive speed reduces reaction time
    • Look for new speed limits around junctions
    • The test is not a race
