Module 2 Bike hire/insurance?

Hello,I've been looking everywhere for something on this. I failed my module 2 (got a bit frazzled and didn't give enough room at a roundabout).Now I want to take another one. The thing is the place where I did my course isn't offering any dates until September, and they cost %XA3200-odd for a re-test, and I'm itching to get on the road before winter (which is coming).Is it possible to hire bikes for the Mod 2 test, and have a fully licensed rider take it to the test centre for me? I've been searching everywhere because I assumed somebody must ...

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. It's sometimes comforting to know that other people are failing too for various reasons and you are not a total bike numpty. So if you are one of those people, ...

Turning right into a sideroad

Hi all,So the time is finally upon me, my mod one is on Monday then Wednesday (assuming I pass mod 1) I have my mod two.Something I'm struggling with however is road position when taking a right into a side road. My instructor has barked at me a couple of times for getting my position wrong and I guess I'm just not getting it.I have hired a 125 to practice on between now and then, it's helping with my road confidence and I had a good ride earlier today but an oncoming truck did beep ...

Test on an automatic?

Is there any reason why you cannot take an A1 license on a 125cc automatic? Technical or legally? As there does not seem to be any websites geared up for this at all. Even the government website fails to list any 125s on it's list of approved 'Practical test' approved machines.
