The Advanced riding Test is carried out by an Examiner allocated by RoSPA (UK) and is a contract between you and RoSPA (UK). The Group will complete the Test application on your behalf when you and your tutor agree that you are ready. The allocated RoSPA Examiner will contact you arrange to meet you for your Test.
The following notes are for general guidance, and may not necessarily reflect exactly what happens on your Test. Exceptional riding skill is NOT required to pass the Test, but safe, smooth, systematic and legal riding is.
The Advanced riding Test consists of a ride of up to one hour in duration, over all types of road from country lanes, town streets and residential areas to dual carriageways, including possibly a motorway, so your practice runs will cover all of these. You must be comfortable with riding on all types of road, and be able to keep up your concentration for over one hour of riding. The Examiner will do his/her best to put you at ease, and will start with the premise that they expect you to pass the Test.
The Examiner will expect your motorcycle to be in roadworthy condition. A clean motorcycle gives a good initial impression. Your riding gear must be of a good standard and you should wear hi-vis. He/she may ask you to sign a Documents Declaration to confirm that you have a valid riding Licence, current ,motorcycle insurance, and may ask you to read a car registration plate at a distance of 20 metres to confirm your eyesight meets the required standard.
