Hours of Training
The OSMPSL routine must be used on approach. Take notice of sign posts or road markings, if there aren’t any use the right hand lane. Indicate right and move into the middle of the right hand lane, maintaining a dominant lane position to prevent other vehicles from trying to squeeze past in the same lane. Approach the roundabout in a central position, reduce the speed of the motorcycle and select the correct gear as you slow down. Look early into the roundabout, assess the traffic flow and decide to ride on if clear, or stop if it isn’t. On the final approach to the roundabout should use the rear brake only. If necessary stop behind the white line, in the centre of the lane and in first gear.
Once a decision to go is made, move into the centre of the right hand lane, this is commonly known as the inside lane. It may be necessary to take a lifesaver to the left on entering the roundabout and do not cut across into the left lane. Once in a central position in the right hand lane, continue to look where you want to go and when you reach the point of no return, change your signal to the left. After indicating carry out a left lifesaver to check it is safe to leave the roundabout and once in the new lane cancel the signal. You may find this type of roundabout challenging as a new rider, it is advisable for you to take professional motorcycle training prior to taking the Module Two test.
