I got my Ps yesterday and I feel sooooo much better to have that out of the way!! Absolutely baffled by some people though - like the couple who arrived to re-take their Licence test... on the SAME scooter... and not wearing gloves or safety gear other than a small helmet. When asked "Why doesn't your scooter have an L plate" the answer was "Because you can't carry a pillion when on your Ls and we didn't want to get booked." Right... Anywho, back to me - thoroughly enjoyed ripping my L plate off the back of the bike and cruised home over the West Gate feeling much less conspicuous, and much more confident. Thanks to all for tips, advice, help etc offered along the way.
