Exercise 5 of the Test

( 5 ) "U" - TURN

Exercise 5 Diagram

This manoeuvre used to be done on the road as part of the "Practical Riding Test", (now "Module 2"), but it has been moved into "Module 1" and is now done on the yard.

Just ahead of where you have stopped from the "Slow Ride" manoeuvre there are a pair of lines marked out on the yard.

You have to pull away from where you have stopped (HEAD CHECK)! and perform your U-Turn between these lines. Go outside the lines or put a foot down and that's the end of the Test!

Once again this is something that you can practice beforehand with the "Slalom" and "Figure of Eight".
