Module 2 Training

Step 1 - Get on two wheels

You must pass module 1 before you can take the module 2 test.

You can book both modules at the same time, but if you do not pass module 1 you must wait 3 working days before you can retake it.

The module 2 test normally takes about 40 minutes and includes:

  • An eyesight check
  • ‘Show me, tell me’ vehicle safety questions
  • Road riding
  • Independent riding


You must bring your module 1 pass certificate to the module 2 test, plus all the documents you need to bring to the module 2 test.

What does the course involve?

The start time for training is 9am, and students are required to be on site 15-30 minuets prior to this. Finish times are not set as guaranteed, as this is dependent on students capability to show competence in each element in sequence before moving on to the next element.

Before arriving for your CBT you MUST have read and understood the Highway Code.

Compulsory basic training (CBT) has 5 elements:

You’ll have to read a number plate from a distance of:

  • 20 metres for vehicles with a new-style number plate
  • 5 metres for vehicles with an old-style number plate

New-style number plates start with 2 letters followed by 2 numbers, for example AB51 ABC.

You’ll fail your riding test if you fail the eyesight check.

You’ll be asked 2 vehicle safety questions known as the ‘show me, tell me’ questions. These test that you know how to carry out basic safety checks.

You’ll drive in various road and traffic conditions, but not on motorways. You’ll be asked to carry out:

  • normal stops
  • an angle start (pulling out from behind a parked vehicle)
  • a hill start (where possible)

The examiner will give you directions using a radio. They’ll normally follow you on a motorcycle.

Driving test routes are not published, so you can not check them before your test.

You’ll have about 10 minutes of independent riding. This is designed to assess your ability to ride safely while making your own decisions.

You can ask the examiner to repeat the directions if you forget them – you will not fail the test if you go off the route. You can not use sat nav.

*Students will need to provide their own safety gear. Helmet, Jacket and gloves that meet current safety requirements and standards.
