Oregon Motorcycle & Moped Manual 2012 – 2013

Cone Weave & U-Turn

Beginning to the left, weave back and forth around all five

cones without hitting any or putting your foot down. Once

you are beyond the last cone, continue around to the far side

of the course and ride toward the box. Make a U-turn within

the box without touching the boundaries or putting your foot

down. After completing the turn, stop near the line.

Scoring deductions are made for:

• Foot touching the ground.

• Skipping or hitting a cone.

• Either tire touching the boundary line during the U-turn.

Quick Stop

Go straight down the course between the cones at a speed

of 12-20 miles per hour. Maintain a steady speed of at least

12 miles per hour before you reach the first line. When your

front tire passes the second line, begin braking. Bring your

motorcycle to a complete stop as quickly and as safely as

possible. No points are deducted if you skid.

Scoring deductions are made for:

• Not stopping within the maximum distance allowed.

• Not reaching the correct speed range.

Obstacle Swerve

Follow the same path used in the quick stop test at about

the same speed. This time, when your front tire passes the

second line, swerve to the right or left to avoid hitting the

obstacle line. Then swerve back to avoid hitting the sideline.

Scoring deductions are made for:

• Either tire touching the obstacle line or sideline.

• Not reaching the correct speed range.

You will be graded on your ability to control the cycle,

maneuver, turn, stop quickly and ride in a straight line. Points

will be deducted if you stall your engine while attempting the

test. The examiner also will watch your posture and overall

operation and attention.

You may stop the test at any time you desire. You should

not attempt a test you do not feel you can do. If a test is

too hard, or you cannot safely follow instructions, tell the

examiner. You can make an appointment for another day,

after you’ve had more time to practice.
