Parking in reverse
The first cluster consists of the exercise in reverse parking. In this compulsory exercise you walk on the right side of the roadway with the motorcycle in hand. Then you park the motorcycle in reverse in an imaginary parking space and put the motorcycle on the stand. Then you take the motorbike off the stand again and walk out of the parking space to the right.

Slow turn over
The required exercise in the second cluster is the slow turn over. There is no speed guideline. Given the short distance in between low speed is advised. The use of slipping clutch is mandatory for this exercise. Also important is the combination of correct operation, slow driving and maintaining the balance. You do all this of course without touching the pawns!

Driving away from parking space
In this choice exercise you drive out of a parking space from a standstill. You make a right turn and drive straight ahead for a few meters. The carriageway width is three meters. The most important thing about this exercise is that you know how to make a sharp turn in a controlled manner, immediately after starting.

Imaginary eight
With this optional exercise you show that you can drive a complete (imaginary) eight in a rectangular frame. You drive with a pulling engine and maintain an even speed. You can use your foot brake and possibly a slipping clutch.

Drive straight ahead slow speed.
Here you are supposed to keep driving next to the current examiner over a distance of twenty meters. Attention is paid to speed, balance and correct operation of the engine. You are using a slipping clutch. You can also use your foot brake in this choice exercise, but you keep your feet on the footrests while driving.

Half turn (left or right)
If the examiner chooses this exercise, you will drive with a slightly pulling motor on an imaginary roadway. After the second pawn, make a half turn to the left or right in one smooth movement. You then drive back to the starting point.

Avoidance exercise
Cluster three consists of three exercises, of which the avoidance exercise is mandatory. During this exercise you arrive at fifty kilometers per hour through the gate. Fifteen meters after the gate you have to swerve to the left in front of an imaginary wall of pawns. Then you return to your own lane.

Fast turn over
Six pawns have been set up for the fast turn over. You take this turnover at a speed of at least thirty kilometers per hour with the engine pulling. It is important that it happens smoothly and evenly.

Slowdown exercise
In this optional exercise, you accelerate from a standstill to quickly reach a speed of fifty kilometers per hour. You then drive in at least third gear. After the second gate you brake to 30 kilometers per hour and downshift at least one gear. Then you drive a turnover at this speed around three pawns that are eight meters apart.

Emergency stop
In the fourth cluster, the emergency stop is the mandatory exercise. You drive at least fifty kilometers per hour. After the gate you brake as much as possible to come to a stop as quickly as possible. Of course you don’t lose control of the bike.

Precision stop
The precision stop is all about standing still at a certain point. You first drive fifty kilometers per hour and you brake controlled when you pass the first gate of two pawns. Then you have to stop the motorcycle seventeen meters away.

Stop test
In addition to the precision stop, the examiner can also choose the stop test as a second choice exercise. The purpose of this exercise is that you brake well technically. You shift back to first gear shortly before you come to a stop. You have a short braking distance.
