I got out of bed at 5am yesterday morning, which was a pretty big achievement for me, and rode up to Joondalup (about as far away from my house as you can go without leaving Perth) to do my riding test at 7:55am. I pulled off the turning and braking perfectly, but on two occasions the examiner told me to find somewhere safe to stop when I arrived at a certain street, and I stopped suddenly without giving him enough warning. The second time I stopped quickly as I was approaching a bus bay and didn't want to stop near it, and there was nowhere to stop after it for quite a while, but I should have kept going. After that he directed me back to the office, and I figured I'd failed, as we'd only been out there for a few minutes, but as I was reversing in he said "If you hit my bike you fail" (which of course, I didn't do). So now I've got my license... just need a bike.
