Within the past month I've completed my CBT, theory and mod 1 tests with no problems, however have a question about observations when moving off for the mod 2 test I have this week (and all future rides of course).
When moving off, say from traffic lights or in a queue of traffic, what observations should be done?
On the mod 1 test I did a right shoulder check before each time the bike moved and passed that with no minors. With one instructor on the road I did just a right shoulder check before moving off each time and this wasn't commented on. However, another instructor has commented that checking both mirrors and not the right shoulder is correct (unless I feel it's necessary to check one/both shoulders e.g. if I've seen a cyclist approaching etc).
I'm happy all my mirror/should checks are fine for changing lanes/overtaking/junctions/roundabouts, but I wouldn't want to fail for not getting the basic moving off bit right!
Any other general tips for the mod 2 test also greatly appreciated.
Thanks very much in advance.
