Hours of Training
The motorcycle examiner will allow up to ten minor faults. Any major fault recorded will result in a test failure. Minor faults are deemed as small rider errors that do not significantly impact on the safety of you or other road users. A few examples of minor faults include road positional errors, signalling late and in certain circumstances missing an observation. All faults that you make, major or minor, are recorded at the discretion of the examiner.
Any major faults that you make will result in a fail. Major faults (also classed as serious faults) will be recorded and explained at the end of the test. If you make less than ten minor faults with no major faults it will result in a pass. If a fault is considered to be dangerous, the examiner can terminate the test on the spot. If this happens, you will be required to switch off the motorcycle, dismount and wait until your instructor arrives to collect you.
You are strongly advised not to keep your own private score and just continue with the test, unless the examiner indicates otherwise. Self analysis on your module two motorcycle test can result in unnecessary stress and even lead to a test fail. You may think a mistake you have made is a test fail but the examiner has marked it as a minor fault. Over thinking about mistakes leads to more errors. During the test you should relax, enjoy the ride and continue to the end, without giving up. Regardless of the outcome the experience is valuable and can not be replicated during training. When the test has ended, the examiner will invite you into the test centre for a debrief and to complete your paperwork.
