My 1st test was on the old test, 17th april, i didnt get a chance to take it cos they said it was tooo windy,,
I was the 5th person to take the test in Blackburn on the morning of 27th April, this was the next avalible slot.
I can see why they do the test, the 4 people infront of me failed, they were all like Bambi on ice.. and prob would not have passed the old test.
I failed cos I was 1kph too slow on the swerve test, so cos your allowed two attempts, I went at it again, yeh hit the speed 69 kph, but I clipped a cone...ooops posss a little too fast. what a load of crap. even the examiner said i was a vgood rider, and should have passed...
I have been riding for 5 years, now on my third cbt, I commute 30 miles everyday to work and have never needed to swerve like they suggest in the test,, Why cos I read the road and ride defensively, and you would not put yourself in such a position,, and yes I am bitter about not passing, I think they really need to reassess certain aspects of the test...what they are asking you to do on the swerve test is Dangerous, and anyone who has done it may agree with me the course at the speed in the wet Oh and did i mention it had not rained for about 1 week and this day the rain was awful !!! is dangerous, what ever happend to ride for the conditions...
Anywho rant over, and i hope no one esle gets hurt while doing their test, Ride safe, keep it silverside up !
