NSW MOST - 8 test segments ??

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' at netrider.net.au started by subabert, May 7, 2007.

  1. On the RTA website it says 'The Motorcycle Operator Skill Test (MOST) consists of eight test segments.... etc etc'

    I downloaded the test guide and it only details 4 test scenarios,
    Left turn and stop in the box
    Cone weave and U-turn
    Braking
    Obstacle turn



    I don't understand what it means by '8 segments'

    Is there another 4 segments that aren't detailed?
    Or is it just those 4 tests and from it they assess you on 8 areas in total.

    Thanks

  3. Left turn and stop in the box
    Cone weave and U-turn
    Braking
    Obstacle turn

    this is how they're run (the first four are run together...)

    so, in order of the test...

    1. left turn &
    2. stop in the box
    3. cone weave &
    4. U-turn
    5. Braking
    6. Obstacle turn

  6. As Albury is a 'non declared' area I didn't have to do a pre learner course before getting my Learner's permit; for those of you in a similar situation to me, did you have to do the MOST test to get your P's or was there a different test?
