What is the Motorcycle Operators Skills Test?
The Motorcycle Operator Skill Test (M.O.S.T) is designed to measure a rider's ability to handle a motorcycle, including starting, accelerating, turning and braking. The M.O.S.T is undertaken at the end of the pre-provisional rider training course.
Duration of training courses
The pre-learner course is held over two days (3.5 hours duration each day). Roads and Maritime Services (replacing Roads and Traffic Authority) provides motorcycles, helmets and gloves.
Generally, morning and afternoon courses are available. Some testing centres offer evening courses. Detailed information about courses and commencement times will be provided when making a booking.
Provisional courses are of 7 hours duration. Detailed information about the courses and commencement times will be provided when making a booking. Evening courses are not available.
