How to Prepare for your Motorcycle Theory Test | Alpha Motorcycle

To prepare for your motorcycle theory test the Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) recommend that you study the highway code. The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency publish a great range of official leaning materials, these are available to buy from high street books stores or online.

In order to best prepare for the multiple choice part of your motorcycle theory test you should refer to official source material. You may want to also complete some official practice tests, to check you are on track to pass.

Areas to Brush Up On

Understanding the Highway Code is essential to passing your motorcycle theory test. Many of the rules in the Highway Code are legal requirements, and if you break them you are committing a criminal offence and could be fined, given penalty points, or have your license taken away from you.

You should also get to know traffic signs before taking your motorcycle theory test. Traffic signs play a vital role in directing, controlling and informing traffic, and so it is essential that you understand them and follow them correctly. There are three main types of traffic signs that you will want to familiarise yourself with, signs that give orders, signs that warn and signs that give information.

Another area you will be tested on is hazard perception. The hazard perception test will be delivered on a computer, you will be presented with a series of clips that feature everyday road scenes. In each clip there will be at least one developing hazard, and you will respond by clicking a mouse once you notice the hazard. Recognising possible dangers is a skill that is necessary for any driver, so it doesn’t matter if you are conducting a motorcycle theory test, or if you will be lorry, you will still conduct the same hazard perception test.

General Housekeeping

Make sure you turn up to your motorcycle theory test on time, and prepared, if you have done your research and practiced then you should have nothing to worry about. In order to pass the test you need to pass both parts individually, if you fail either the theory section or the hazard perception section, you will have to complete the whole thing again.
