What a day had mod 2 booked for 9:17 gets there examiner was 10 mins late but got going then stalled the bike on a roundabout whith traffic approaching but moving on does all the normal stops and that then pulled up at the start of the independent ride then boom the damned bike wouldn't start after 5 minutes of me and the examiner trying to start the bike i put the steering lock on and examiner took me back to the test centre but he said that he would check with his management team if he could retest me for free as he put it down to exceptional circumstances and they said yes as long as he had a free slot so my instructor takes his van and picks up the bike and a few hours later we go back to the test centre with a different bike (same make and model) does the test route and yee bloody haa I passed with 5 minors and hopefully picking up the Suzuki intruder m800 on Friday

So today (8 days after my cbt) at 41 years old I passed both module 1 & 2 tests in the same day, my advice to you is listen to what your instructor tells you, have faith and confidence in yourself and try not to worry...
The tests are really not that hard but will effectively examine whether or not you have the skills and competence to be safe on the road. I did 3 consecutive days of training and can recommend this method, the information is all fresh in your mind and as long as you are reasonable you will be fine! You can do this...

Just got back from failing my first mod 2 test, absolutely gutted! Was on the independent ride and got confused on a roundabout after coming off a slip road. Ended up getting too close to a car on my left when trying to change lanes. I should of just accepted that i was in the wrong lane and taken a wrong route safely.
Had a funny feeling as soon as I got on the bike that this time was going to be a fail but still very gutting.

bad luck mate, it's always easy to look back and know what you should have done though! Positive point is you've learnt from it and will be a better rider because of it. Good luck for the retest!

Did my mod2 today. Happy to say I passed :) really over the moon.

The ride seemed to go very quickly. I started with my independent ride. And then he took over. And before I knew it... we were turning into the test centre.

I thought I'd failed before I left the test centre. Did the huge lifesavers before driving out of the bay. Only for a car to be blocking the exit. I forgot a life saver before I went again! After that I was a bit upset. Also stalled whilst trying to slowly drive out of a junction without stopping. Just had it in the wrong gear.

In the end the feedback was I was doing too many lifesavers! Apparently going them to come back in after you pass a car isn't needed lol. My instructor told me this but I went with the logic that too many was better than too few.

So the only advice I'll give is that if a plonker like me can get a full A licence anyone can. And don't ever right yourself off these tests - I thought I'd failed and was totally wrong.

Now I need to just find a bike and an advanced bike course. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Well done, better to be told your doing too many life savers, because had it been too few that would have been a fail.
