VI. Roadside stop
Resume

This driving task begins when the examiner tells you to move back onto the road and ends when you have returned to normal traffic speed. Take the following actions:

Start
Holding the motorcycle or moped steady, put the kickstand up and start the engine, if necessary.

Signal
Turn off your four-way flashers and turn on your left signal.

Traffic check
Just before pulling away from the stop, check your mirrors and your left blind spot.

Speed
Return to normal traffic speed by accelerating smoothly to blend with the traffic around you. In light traffic, accelerate moderately.

In heavier traffic, you may have to accelerate more quickly. If your vehicle is equipped with gears, shift gears as you increase speed. Drive in the left tire track.

Cancel signal
Turn off your signal as soon as you are back on the road.
