M.O.S.T-BALANCE AND STABILITY Test
Importantly, each component of the MOST relates to skills you will normally use when riding on the road.
None of the tests are difficult or dangerous for a skilled rider.
The MOST consists of 7 test segments designed to measure your ability to handle a motorcycle, including starting, accelerating, turning and braking.
If, during testing, you feel that any part of the test is beyond your skill level, you should tell the Testing Officer.
To pass, you will have to successfully complete all of the test segments.
- Sharp Turn
- Normal stop
- Cone weave
- Quick Stop
- Obstacle Turn
Is it Hard? No
What if I find it Hard?
Formally you will read the following: “None of the tests are difficult or dangerous for a skilled rider.”
This can be translated in several ways.
- 1. If the tests are difficult for you, you need more skill.
- 2. If the tests are dangerous for you, you need more skill
- 3. If it’s both, then you really need to practise.,
We insist on riders wearing as a minimum:
- All the gear all the time
- Helmet – supplied by DMC riding school
- Pants that cover the full length of the leg
- Long sleeved shirt or jacket made from protective material designed to minimise abrasions.
- Eye protection
- Fully enclosed gloves
- Fully enclosed shoes.
No matter what you ride – from scooter to superbike – good gear is an investment too important to ignore. It could make the difference between a nasty tumble and injuries that prevent you from ever riding again.
It is the responsibility of the learner to attend Darwin Motorcycle Riding School wearing long pants, enclosed shoes and eye protection.
We provide full use of a Motorcycle for the duration of the test.
