How to control a motor fwd and revs picaxe -08m2

Hi everyone this is my first forums post here

I have a bit of a problem that i am trying to work out and that is how to control two motor with a picaxe school experimenter board and an -08m2 chip. This is for a very simple robot that should be able to go forward hit an object triggering a switch which will stop the robot, reverse it and then turn it around before moving off to crash into something else.
