Basic motorcycle and moped driving skills

This chapter tells you about the basic skills you need to drive a motorcycle or moped. Controlling your motorcycle or moped means being able to make it go exactly where you want and at the correct speed. It will take practice and experience to master the basic skills of starting, steering, turning, shifting gears and stopping. Practise off the road, in a parking lot or other spot away from traffic, until you can perform all the manoeuvres safely and confidently.
