I did my Theory test on Friday, just brush up on your useless facts. I had one question which was ‘what is the maximum length a motorcycle trailer can be?’ which I had no idea about, and then some pretty random questions about road signs. The rest of the questions were pretty easy, luckily none about stopping distances at 50mph etc.. just ones about how much gap to leave in the wet and what to do if you see a fuel spillage and so on.

The hazard perception was what I was worrying about as I always clicked too early when I did practice ones, so I usually just clicked when I first see the hazard then wait half a second, click again. Worked for me as I passed both.

All in all, the actual test seemed a lot easier than the online practice resources which is good!

Good luck bud, hopefully you’ll smash it :thumb:

Thanks Brad

All the practices I have done, I also seem to click too early. At first I didn't realise you can click multiple times so was doing terrible. However since knowing that I have now been getting mostly 5s in my practice.



Will see what happens. Even though I am passing ever practice I am crapping it really. I have never had to do anything like this before.

Remember what I said earlier - the test software lets you click about 8 times in succession; however, in the test you're limited to 5 in succession, after which you'll fail that particular exercise and score a zero.

Thanks. I have been limiting to 4 or 5 clicks to get into the habit.

Good idea. Always click 5 times, though, as that gives you the potential to score all five marks. Also watch out for the double-hazard scenarios - I can't remember if you're warned that it's one of those or not, though.

I have not come across any in the practices but I would like to think they will warn of that.

Neither did I, but it's 2.5 metres, measured from the bike's rear wheel spindle.

Do I win a prize ? :D

You might win a prize if that question ever comes up in a pub quiz :lol:

Great stuff. And that’s why I suggested that you give yourself some time to practice :thumb:
