Common Failures


  • Associates repeatedly fail their tests on these avoidable mistakes.
  • Do not break the law. Study the highway code so you know exactly what you can and can't do e.g.  where are you allowed to pull in when filtering past a queue of cars waiting at traffic lights on zig-zag road warning marks? Get it wrong, and it can be a fail. 
  • Don't break the speed limit.
  • Traffic lights - take your commuting head off and go on green, not amber.
  • Do not cross a solid white lane marker, unless you are permitted to do so (know when you can do this).
  • Stop at a stop sign. Show the examiner you've stopped by putting one foot down.
  • Don't cut mini roundabouts or cut the corner turning right into a junction.  
  • Read these common confusions, which will hopefully help clear up any uncertainties. 
  • Book a Finishing School ride to polish your riding and knowledge up to test standard.
  • When in doubt, play it safe. Trust the SYSTEM and you'll do great!
