As you know I have passed my theory and have been doing some searching on the net regarding the test, I have book my car test and I am using a friends car for the test as this works out cheaper £62 for the test and £16.32 for learner insurance which covers the test, Now I have been looking at doing this with my bike test to save some cash i have booked a 2 hour evaluation lesson on a 600cc bike and my brother has said if it is possible I can use his bike. so has anyone done this and how did you organise it or would you recommend going to a school :bike2:

I'd recommend getting some tuition and using their bikes. Pretty sure it's tricksy to get learner bike insurance and you may be a good rider but an instructor knows what the examiner wants to see. And we al pick up bad habits that need straightening out!


There's been a few threads about this I think general concensus is get some lessons *waits to be corrected * :lol:

Yep, go get some proper lessons, it might one day save your life..


Will you be doing a restricted licence (A2) or the full fat version. If you're going down the A2 route then your brothers bike will have to be compatible :scratch:

An R1! That's something they won't see that at the test centre every day. If you're competent and safe on the bike then the only thing that could let you down is your understanding of the tests format. I'd suggest you get the instructor to run through a full mock test during your evaluation and see what points he brings up.

I feel confident as I have been on a CBT for 20 years had 1 accident which left me with a fractured humerus bone (and yes it was painful) last year and got straight on my bike as soon as I was allowed to so idiots on the road don't scare me too much after the accident though I became more aware of my surroundings and what is going on around me so will see what is said at the evaluation

Well good luck to you mate but it doesn't sound like you need it. Similar situation to me except i had a CBT for 1 year not 20 and I still found the tests a breeze.
