  1. Anyone going to be at the Botany RTA this Sunday for a P's test or their L's test?

    I'll be doing my P's (yellow VTR), so if anyone's down there, come say hi!

  3. Good luck my man! remember to take it slow...... it's REALLY easy to go fast on the course and stuff it all up........ they allow 20km/h to 25km/h and believe me......... doing the course on 21-22km/h is far more easier than doing it at 24-25km/h ....... even tho it's only a couple of km's difference.

    plus the instructor sometimes turns a blind eye if you went abit slower than 20km/h on the emergency brake and more so on the swirve.

    my mistake the first time was that I went abit too fast..... even doing the whole course I went to fast. so I also suggest to take a Deeeeep breath and 5 seconds to yourself to prepare on every obstacle course during the test. TAKE YOUR TIME ..... 5 seconds of deep breath can help you ALOT.

    stay sharp and focus and don't stress and control your nerves - and most of all don't forget to do HEAD CHECKS..... people lose easy points like that.

    see ya soon!!! we gotta celebrate on monday!!!
