Don't give up.

Hello :) I just wanted to drop a note of support for those that may have failed their Mod 1 or 2s a couple of times and feeling anxious or deflated. I've just got back from passing my Mod 2 today (woop!), but getting there has been a bit of a slog, and one thing that has helped - was reading other posts where not everyone found it easy, but finally did it.

Life after CBT

Hello,I've been riding my 125 on a CBT for nearly 4 years now and am looking to move on in terms of licence and do my test.Thing is, I haven't a clue what I need to be doing.  OK, I know I need my theory but what next please?I'm happy to keep on my 125 for just now but would probably like to move to say a 300 within a few years.  I'm also happy to stick with an automatic as it's mostly city riding I do.What test/license should I be aiming for (A1/A2 etc) please?If I want to get ...
