Module 2 Question...

Hey everyone


Had my mod 1 and mod 2 today, passed the mod 1 and failed the mod 2 with four minors on my shoulder checks when turning right... I thought it was a bit harsh but then i would as i've just failed! Taking it on the chin and will be triple checking next time i take it...

I'm obviously going to book up my mod 2 again, next available time is in a month. I have my own honda cbf600, so i wondered if i could book the mod 2 on my own accord, without going through the school that taught me.

I guess my actual question is:

Can i go to the test centre on my own bike, obviously being insured and take the test without an instructor with me? 

Any info would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Chum

well you cant ride your bike to the test centre as you arent licensed to ride it yet , get it delivered in a van etc , im sure you also need L Plates on it too .

If you're doing DAS

then you'll need to have an instructor accompany you to the centre with the usual rules (L-plates, radio contact etc).

As for your test, your examiner wants to see SAFE riding.

Some extra instruction may not go amiss anyhow (you don't want to correct one bad habit and develop others) - your test "failure" may save your bacon in the future.

Thanks

Thanks for the replies guys, with the instructor it is!


I thought i was doing everything correct but obviously not. The examiner commented on how i would make the early check and then also a check after i had taken the turn but not as i was about to do it.

Received four minors on that, and one other for not cancelling my left signal when asked to pull over and move away safely. I knew i had done that straight away and cancelled it seconds after.

As you said, take the advice on board and make the appropriate changes to become a safer rider.

Hopefully next i post i will have my full license!

Cheers
