The Written Test

The G1 and M1 written tests are both very similar. There are a few exceptions due to the size and nature of motorcycles and cars being different, however the questions are very similar overall.

The questions are split into two main categories, road rules and road signs.

Furthermore, most of these questions are based on common sense, meaning if you take a moment to think about it, you will undoubtedly know the answer.

The best way to revise for the test is to get the official driver or motorcycle handbook. Once you have your hands on it, it’s best to read through it at least twice to get the information to soak in.

Depending on how you soak up knowledge, it might be worth reading it more, and focus attention on the aspects of driving that you feel would be most challenging.

It is also worth going online and looking for practice tests that you can take because they will often be similar to the questions that you may receive in the written test you take.

In order to pass the test you need to score 80% or more. As with anything, the more you practice the better chance you have of success.

Put Your Mind At Ease

Everyone feels nervous when they are taking a test, some less than others however, we have compiled a list of factors which will help put your mind at rest to give you the best chance at success, because you deserve it!

Common Sense:
As previously mentioned, many of the questions are based on common sense, meaning if you just think the question through, you will find it easier to come to the right answer.

No Time Limit:
A big fear factor for people when it comes to taking tests is the time limit. However when it comes to the written tests for G1 and M1 there is NO TIME LIMIT! That’s right, you can take as long or as little as you want.

Multiple Choice:
If the previous two points haven’t eased your mind, all the questions are multiple choice! This means that you don’t have to scrape at ideas out of thin air when you aren’t so sure, as you have the answer right in front of you.

Advice

In order to give you the best chance at success, we want to give you some advice. Here are a few tips to consider when taking the test.

Understanding The Questions:
Because you have as much time as you need, we advise that you read each question twice, and ensure that you say it clearly in your head. Because if you aren’t clear on the question, when looking at the answers you will have the wrong perspective.

Process Of Elimination:
As the questions are multiple choice, we suggest using the process of elimination. When looking at the answers, you will often find that one of the answers is completely irrelevant, meaning you can already cross that one out.

Then, with the remaining answers, follow this process of which seems most irrelevant/wrong until you are left with your final answer.
