Bad luck, mate.........If it's any consolation, my OH's daughter passed today.......on her 3rd attempt.......and, like you, she had similar experiences on her previous 2 tests....no minors, just 1 major on each.... :roll:
Good luck.....#3's the winner...... 8-)
I feel the need....the need for Speed......Triple

I still stand by that Id rather keep retaking this one than my MOD 1 though!!
My Mod1 is on Tuesday and I already hate it. If I get through, my mod 2 is in a couple of weeks. Sorry to Hear that the CBR125 is sitting unridden. Perhaps though, you could practice "correctness" and technique on that rather than not riding at all. There is no substitute for seat time.

You're one up on me though. I'll be out today doing figure 8s around tennis balls!
If there isn't enough lubricant, you must be doing it wrong.

Sorry to hear this, what people do on the roads is utterly ridiculous. When taking my hgv lessons I was amazed at what you can fail for when it comes to other road users, unfortunatly aridity isn’t built into the Highway Code.

Best of luck for your next test sounds like you have it under control and have that experience under your belt

You'll nail it! Those things will soon be a thing of the past. The positive of MOD 1 is its only about 10 mins :D

Hopefully you nail it next time, 3rd time lucky.
I recently managed to get through my tests (2 attempts at mod 1) I think I scored it lucky with my examiner following in his car and was sure I'd failed until he handed over my pass certificate with no minors. Now I've passed I can learn to ride!

Good luck for the next time

2018 BMW R nineT
“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.
