Motorcycle safety courses – When you take a motorcycle safety course, you will get a course certificate. If you bring this certificate to a DriveTest centre, within six months, you do not need to take the M1 road test – you move directly to the next level (M2). You also will be able to take the second road test sooner, after 18 months instead of the standard 22. Taking an approved training program may entitle you to an insurance discount.

What to Expect

Test anxiety is common, and the best way to reduce it is to be prepared for the test you plan to take. The M1 practice test is set up to reflect what the real test looks like. The questions you will be asked on the practice test and the real test can vary. There are hundreds of questions in the database and it isn’t possible to know which of them will come up on your est. They are randomly allocated.

The goal is to be prepared for the questions on the practice and real test so that it won’t matter which ones come up. Both the M1 practice test and the real test will have 40 multiple-choice questions. Carefully read the question and read each possible answer. Select the best possible answer from the given choices. Don’t select the first choice that sounds relevant as one of the remaining choices may be a better fit. Take your time on each question before you move to the next.

Practice Online
