yesterday i passed my Ps test after almost 6 months of riding on my Ls!! obviously i can't be happier so thanks for all your posts guys when answering newbie questions. the day was abit weird with rain on and off, then later in the afternoon becoming sunny with clear skies up in the Adamstown centre Newcastle. anyway some tips now guys: 4 out of 6 passed. there was a girl there with a yamaha jog 50cc. she did the course no problems but at the end of the day there's a 2hr road ride and the scoots top speed was 60km/h which made it hard for her to keep up. but she did the road ride no probs at all. so those of you out there with 50cc wondering bout the road ride, it'll be no problem for you guys. just make sure you listen to the directions so if you get lost. getting lost means you fail the road ride! one guy failed cause during the testing he didn't do his head checks before moving off. every head check you don't do when moving off from a complete stop gets 3 points added to you. accrue 9 and you fail. and remember its a really easy thing to forget since your trying to concentrate on doing the course. the other guy failed cause he dropped the bike doing the emergency stop. firstly he brought his zzr which he wasn't able to do the u-turn on cause they got a wider turning circle, so he swapped it with a cb250. so he didn't have too much time to get used to the cb250 before doing the test. i think my tip here would be to not try to do your best stop because dropping the bike cause of a locked up wheel will mean that you fail immediately. Whereas taking a longer distance to stop will only accrue points to your name for every line that you pass after where your supposed to. personally i found the braking the most difficult cause during practicing i did lock up the wheel just managing to hold it so in the actual test i decided that i was going to take a longer distance to stop and take the points. i was pretty nervous in the beginning cause my Ls expire soon and if i failed i may of had to do my prelearners again and i really didn't wanna spend another 2 days on that! but then the instructor says if you fail the test then you just pay another 40 dollars and come back and do the test again next week without having to spend the whole 8am-4pm at the centre which was great cause i felt it took alotta pressure out of the test. so i'm sure the other 2 guys will get their Ps next week without too much inconvenience to them. all in all a very long day, met lotsa nice new riders, great guys, including the instructors. hope to see you all out there! and in 12 months i'll be unrestricted so watch out!
