Hours of Training
Professional motorcycle training is essential, especially when dealing with complex roundabout layouts. Your local motorcycle training school will ensure you know how to deal safely with various roundabouts. On the Module Two motorcycle test the examiner will say, “At the roundabout follow the road ahead, the second exit.”
You must use the OSMPSL routine and approach with a reduced speed, in the correct gear and with a dominating road position in the centre of your lane. Take notice of any road markings and if there aren’t any, use the left hand lane. The approach is the same as for turning left, but without the need to signal which tells other road users you intend to go straight ahead at the roundabout
Look early into the roundabout and once the decision to go is made, move into the centre of the left hand lane. This may be referred to as the outer lane.
Once you reach the point of no return (the place where you pass the last exit you do not want to take), you should apply the left indicator to show the intention to leave the roundabout at the next exit.
Carry out a lifesaver to check it is safe to leave and then exit into the new lane. Once in the new lane cancel the signal and continue.
