This is an unusual fault to be recorded as it is not that easy for the examiner to see if the clutch is being operated badly during gear changes, unless you are obviously having difficulty riding smoothly ('kangarooing'). Good clutch control, however, is fundamental to being able to ride a motorcycle safely. Poor clutch control often causes poor road positioning, where students attempt to swing widely in and out of junctions to avoid using slow control (swan necking), and the fault tends to be marked under 'steering'. Likewise stalling is often marked under 'move away safely and under control'.
