Bike Test.
« on: 25.02. 2013 18:06 »
I've just done the theory exam.
http://www.2pass.co.uk/theorybike.htm
Failed most of 'em! *eek*........... Glad I passed mine in the days of a man walking around the test route, followed by a couple of Highway Code questions. I feel sorry for the youngsters who have to go through all that. *sad2*
Have a go and report back?........No swatting up or cheating! wink2

Yes, I remember at one BSAOC meeting, Dave Homer set up a driving theory test for us as a sort of quiz night and most of us were pretty hopeless!

I know!...A few had me scratching my head! I mean, have you ever seen a shock absorber or fork seal leak so badly it got onto the tyre tread? And what has that got to do with you ability to ride a bike?

Two short of passing. Not too bad, I think, being in the U.S. and not exactly knowing what a "milk float" is (and some other terms, as well).

That clears it up perfectly. Actually, Google has verified my suspicions.
