    Where are you taking your test mate? Passed my R class in December, advice.....try to relax, sounds stupid I guess because it's not that easy, I was nervous too. The assessor makes a huge difference, the assessor for my RE was an asshole so I was very nervous and only just got through with a pass. The assessor for my R was a nice bloke so I immediately felt more comfortable. It's hard to give advice because really it comes down to your training hours and your riding skills at the end of the day.

    You should get a second go at your emergency stop unless it's a real f**k up! I nailed my e stop every time in training, the day of my RE test I locked up right at the end! Got a second go though and it was fine. I'm sure your instructor or whoever told you but keep the speed at around 45kms instead of 50 and keep the braking smooth!

    if you make a mistake don't draw attention to it and don't worry about it.

    Firstly the examiner may not have noticed but that deep sigh may draw his attention to it. Once a mistake has been made you can't undo it and you've got plenty more points left so don't even think about it - at the end of the day enjoy, it's another 20 minutes on a bike

    This is good advice, I didn't even think to mention that, don't start swearing if you make a mistake!! Also if you think you've made an error, stay focused, as Robw said, the assessor may not have noticed. Oh and check those side streets, make it obvious too!!

    devonshire terrace is probly one of the worst streets to live on in armadale.

    if you have survived this then you will sirvive the test no worries.

    with the E-stops. practice till your confident. then practice a bit more. and before your test do about half hour of just e-stops and u turns

    Head Check.. Head check.. Don't speed through school zones.

    Make sure your indicators are OFF after each turn..

    Stay out of the oil patch @ traffic lights.

    Just imagine the Assessor is your Instructor and like everyone else said.. Relax and be Confident not Cocky.

    And I'd take off your Exact address in the map.

    And benji911, you might want to ask Aufitt nicely if he'd be kind enough to take down that image that he has of your ride.
