The Examiner may ask two of the ten following combinations at the start of your motorcycle test
Identify where you would check the engine oil level and tell me how you would check that the engine has sufficient oil.
Identify where to check level, ie dipstick or sight glass. Explain that level should be between max and min marks. For dipstick remove dipstick and wipe clean, return and remove again to check oil level against max/min marks. For sight glass, ensure glass is clean when checking.
Show me how you would check that the horn is working on this machine (off road only).
Check is carried out by using control (turn on ignition if necessary).
A 1 day course by Lancashire Ambulance Service
The Fist Bike on Scene course (FBoS) was designed by Lancashire Ambulance Service NHS Trust (LAS) in response to enquiries from motorcycle rider groups/organisations who did not feel that traditional first aid courses addressed the specific issues encountered at the scene of a road traffic accident (RTA).
It was written by a State Registered Paramedic and biker with the rational of ……what can we reasonably expect a layperson to do at an accident scene whilst awaiting the arrival of an ambulance. The end result is designed to give bikers the practical skills, theoretical knowledge and confidence to deal with the accident scene and casualties in the precious minutes prior to the arrival of a paramedic.
