    You can connect 4 x dc motors using the pins available these are labeled M1 & M2 on the board which have 5 x pins each.

    The pins you should connect to a motor or more than one are:
    (please note the wires on your motors can go either way round on the pins indicated as it will just control the direction)

    Motor 1
    motor connection 1 ---------- > Pin M1 - B-
    motor connection 2 -----------> Pin M1 - B+

    Motor 2
    motor connection 1 ---------- > Pin M1 - A-
    motor connection 2 -----------> Pin M1 - A+

    Motor 3
    motor connection 1 ---------- > Pin M2 - B-
    motor connection 2 -----------> Pin M2 - B+

    Motor 4
    motor connection 1 ---------- > Pin M2 - A-
    motor connection 2 ----------->Pin M2 - A+

    I am successfully running 4 x dc motors in this configuration
