Passed my mod2 on Thursday - all in all a good experience!

Two minors:
1 - going down a steep winding hill I was going too close to the apex of the corners (he said object fixation related)
2 - queuing in traffic waiting to go left at a T-junction I left too big a gap on my left (I think I do this as a habit from cycling - sit quite far out in traffic to stop cars pulling up next to you then left-hooking you when you get moving), I understand why he marked me down on it though.

Quite happy with that.

Did one mistake (though not a fault) on the "follow signs to x" bit where I was going down a duel carriageway, started to over take a lorry, went round a corner & the junction for x came up - decided to just mess up the navigation & stay in the fast lane missing the turning - he seemed fine with it, though once we missed that junction there were road works causing very slow traffic so we were stuck crawling along in 1st for 5 minutes which was a bit annoying!

The test center is quite a way away from both where my lesson were & where I live so I didn't know any of the roads we were riding on, the Farnborough council certainly have some interesting ideas on roundabouts & road layouts I'll give them that!

Passed my test with 2 minors this morning woohoo!

1st minor for undue hesitation, apparently I was a bit "lethargic" getting up to speed. Not like me at all lol.
2nd minor for awareness and planning.

Very pleased and was great to finally get my new honda out for a spin this afternoon :D

I failed my first Mod 2 for missing an overhead gantry sign somehow, approaching a roundabout then as a result was in the wrong lane coming off the roundabout staring down a motorway slip, resulting in having to move to the right lane too late. Hopefully lesson learned in forward planning!

Skip to my Mod 2 resit 3 months later:
Lost my instructor for the first time, 20 minutes before the test start :( Eventually made my way towards test centre and he caught up with me.

Briefed by examiner, number plate check and a few show me tell me questions, I rode off from the test centre being followed by examiner in an a car, into heavy traffic with traffic lights faulty again in a busy part of town. Sat in the traffic for 10-15 minutes and eventually instructed to turn round out of the traffic and continued on, so my test lasted around 50 minutes! Nothing to difficult this time round. Various stops by the side of the road, pulling in behind parked cars and moving off. By this point it was just starting to rain and it was freezing with my summer gloves on! *Remember to go shopping.....*.

Eventually made our way back to the test centre after some pretty congested areas and routine junctions and the examiner asked me to park my bike up and stand next to it. All in all not a bad second round I thought, once I kept the nerves at bay. The examiner then invited me inside, and after a minute or so asked me into the debrief room, and said 'Happy to let you know that you've passed, congratulations'.

Riding back to the training school afterwards sporting a massive grin, never been more happy to ride in the rain than that moment. :cheers:
