Twice is nothing. You know you'll have to retake your CBT, theory and mod 1 if you wait two years, right?

Look at this way: right now you have two years to pass: keep on at it and you will do it in well under that time.
But if you leave it two years until you retake, then either you have to pass first time or else go back to square one and start with the CBT.
It's a no-brainer, just keep on at it and you'll get through soon enough :thumb:

Hi there. Sorry you’ve failed but hang around here and you’ll see it’s a very very common occurance along with passing if you persevere. Don’t give up. :thumb:

“It’s shit. And as soon as I get home I’m going to buy one.”
That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving isn't for you. But with biking you can, and should try, try, and try again.

Your mod1 will only be valid for a certain period - you don't wanna have to retake that.
