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.

By driving close to other vehicles, one can remain safe in the company of the rest of the traffic and hence lane sharing is good.
B
Both the second and the third statement are correct.
C
Lane sharing is useful because 2 vehicles will receive more notice than 1 and hence it is safer.
D
By driving too close to other vehicles, motorcyclists are at a risk of collisions and accidents and hence sharing lanes should be avoided.
Question 14 Explanation: 
Lane sharing creates a risk of crashes and collisions and hence must be avoided at all costs. To do so motorcyclists are advised to maintain a blocking position.
Question 15
What style of driving does the phrase ‘staggered formation’ refer to?

A staggered formation allows motorcyclists to drive close to each other in a group but prevents them from driving too close to each other and alongside one another. This way, even when you travel together, there is enough room to maneuver around safely in.
Question 19
If you have chosen to change your lane while driving and move to the left lane, before the lane change you should:
A
Use the left mirrors to clearly see the lane before changing.
B
Signal and check your left mirror and look over your shoulder once to make sure that all is clear and it is safe to move.
C
Reduce the speed, shift the gears, and then use both brakes.
D
Use the right mirrors to see the lane and check whether it is secure to change.
