  • Starting and stopping the engine
  • Carrying out basic maintenance checks

  • Ride a figure of eight

You must do at least two hours of road tuition, which must include doing a U-turn and emergency stop. At the outset the instructor will give plenty of guidance and help, but towards the end of the time on the road the instructor will be looking to see if you can get safely from one place to another without hurting yourself or anybody else.
