So what is it all about?

Taken as two pairs of days. This allows you to train and pass your Module 1 (off-road) test, before progressing on to Module 2 (road ride). In brief, it follows this format:

Session 1

Session 1 gets you back on the bike after CBT and regains familiarity with the machine in one of our secure training areas. Try out the “slow speed” Mod 1 exercises as you develop your bike skills.- On-road briefing picking up the themes from your CBT or riding assessment, before heading out onto the road to build confidence on the bike, in as many road scenarios as we can. Debrief the day.

Session 2

In Session 2 you will recap the “slow Speed”, Mod 1 exercises and practise as necessary. Brief/reminders about riding on the road from 125 session and progress down to our Newport site. Introduce and practise “high” speed (approx 32 mph) exercises including the hazard avoidance and emergency stop exercises as required. Attend Mod 1 test at Newport test centre. Return to start location using road ride to boost confidence and riding skills through extended riding and specific scenarios as suits your progress. Once you have completed the Mod 1 test, we can arrange mutually convenient times to move you on to training and testing for Mod 2.

Session 3

Recap on-road training, progress and areas for improvement so far. Attend location of Mod 2 test (usually Newport) to gain familiarity with test areas, conducting a mock test. Build confidence about attending the test centre, where to go, what to do etc., along with vehicle safety checks, questions and pillion and load questions. Complete further, mock riding tests as appropriate. Return to start location and debrief in preparation for Mod 2 test.

Session 4

Document check, bike check and “warm-up” on the yard. Ride to Mod 2 test location to attend “road-riding” test.- Debrief and return ride to start location (hopefully with a big smile on your face!).
