Module 1 swerve danger

Having just taken and failed the Module 1 test(14-06-09), I would like to share my thoughts on the issue. I am in my fifties with 34 years accident-free car driving experience. Many years ago I rode mopeds, scooters and a new 1975 Honda CB200, which was a very good all round machine. However now I find myself restricted to a 125cc as...

Easy if you take the time to learn

I only did my CBT mind sept but did my Mod 1 test last monday and passed with no minors, then took my Mod 2 test last friday and passed with 6 minors with no lessons. It's really not difficult if you take the time to practice. I spent about half an hour each evening just practicing the Mod 1. You just need to drive exactly how you should on your test to drill the routine into you.

I ride the same bike, it's not hard

I, like you, ride a yamaha dragstar 125. It may be a big heavy cruiser but the manouver is still not hard. All you have to think about is "left ellbow down, then right elbow down"

Looking forward to mod 1

I recently took my CBT and advised the school i was looking to go full bike. I have been driving for a few years and the instructor said that the cbt would be pointless as it wont take anytime as i know how to ride so tested me as if it was a full bike test. After he said that i would fly a Mod 1 but would maybe need 1 days training for mod 2. I see alot of comments about the cost yet a mod 1 is only £15 and i have been told is harder than the mod 2 by a mate who done both recently. The annoying part is that i only want the licence to carry a passenger yet none of it is to do with carrying a passenger which i think is rubbish? Im taking automatic only yet i am restricted to a 250 for 2 years yet if i pass geared i can go and drive a 1600 with a passenger what is all that about? surely use of gears isnt a indicator of a good driver?
