  • Morley Test Circuit

    Hi All

    Can anyone tell me where the examiners take you when you do your test at the Morley licensing centre?

    Thanks

    There are a few different ones, but one of the main ones is.. . . . .

    - Turn left out of licensing centre
    - Go through walter rd traffic lights
    - Take your first left
    - Probably do your o turns there
    - Take first right from same street
    - Go left at T junction
    - Go left at next T junction
    - Go right at first roundabout
    - Go left at T junction (Morley Drive i think)
    - Take immediate first right
    - Take about the 3rd left (it's opposite a bus stop anyway)
    - Go right at T junction
    - Take immediate first left
    - Go right at first roundabout
    - Go through Walter St lights
    - Take first right after lights (tiny little street)
    - Go through roundabout x2
    - Turn right at the lights
    - Immediate left back into licensing centre



    I practised a lot.

        Thanks nipPlesticker

        I tried to follow your circuit, but I got lost. I think I've worked it out though. Could you review my ciruit below and let me know if I got it right?

        TL = Left TR = Right KSO = Straight On.

        TL out of Licensing centre onto Russell St
        KSO Through Walter Rd Lights
        TL 1st left into Lovegrove Way
        Do U and O turns
        TR into Massey Place
        TL onto Russell St
        TL into Smith St
        TR at first roundabout into Light St
        TL onto Morley Drive
        TR 1st Right into Light St
        TR 2nd Right into Glover St
        TR At Tee Junction into Wellington St
        TL 1st Left into Wolseley Rd
        TR At roundabout into Camboon Rd
        KSO through Morley Drive lights into Wellington Rd
        KSO through Walter Rd lights
        TL 1st Right into Bishop St
        KSO through 2 roundabouts
        TR at lights onto Russell St
        TL into licensing Centre

        Thanks Again

          Sounds about right!
          Watch the pedestrian crossings at the roundabouts.

          Why the frik is "straight on" KSO??


          If you don't go that way, you take the very very first left after the licensing centre carpark and head up that way somewhere.. Can't remember exactly sorry!

              KSO = Keep Straight On

                Summerrose(ie Deb) did her test in Morley four weeks ago, on 31st December. I have a good scanner and colour laser printer here, so scanned, Photoshopped and printed a map of the area. I highlighted the relevant roads listed above, and Deb and I did numerous laps of the course each time we went riding. That way she would a) know the course and not have to worry so much about following directions, b) generally feel a heap more confident and c) not get caught in any traps or tricky bits that might arise.

                On test day, the assessor (Grant) took her on a completely different but much simpler course. Oops.

                But she passed anyway. The only point that she got was merging from two lanes into one too slowly (ie 42 instead of 60km/hr) but that was because the speedo on her DT wasn't working and she was being ultra cautious to not go too fast (we didn't tell him that part!).

                So, basically, for anyone doing a test in Morley, I would still highly recommend practicing the above course LOTS. No matter what course the assessor actually takes you on, you're still going to come back to the DPI via a couple of roundabouts with pedestrian crossings, which require a degree of multi-tasking - going around the roundabout, indicating and also stopping at the pedestrian crossings (when required). And then there's the final right turn at the lights, where you immediately have to turn left back into the DPI carpark.

                    Hi Phildo

                    How about posting the rout that was taken by Summerrose so we can practice that one as well.
                    Thanks
