  • Had my test today with Tom, clean sheet and one happy rider
    Big thanks to Dwayne at Down-under riders for his patience and for whipping me into shape.
    Also, a shout out to Hazlenutty for her instruction and help when I was still figuring out which ride to buy.

    • Oh, for those reading the thread for tips on routes:
      My test was West Perth as follows:
      Right out of the car-park, stop on Sutherland for instruction. North on Freeway and exit turning Left on Powis St, R on Rawlins St for O Turns and E-stops. Also had a lawn-mower man and some convenient traffic to provide a challenge. Then back on the freeway the way we came and off on Vincent St, L on Southport, L on Cambridge, R on Loftus, L on Railway St, L on Colin Pl and R on Troode st and back into the Licencing Centre.

      The biggest issue I had was my nerves, I would recommend having a lesson before hand as it really helped me iron out the kinks.

                  Unless you live or work in Bunbury you might have trouble booking

                  Even Bunbury people can't book in Collie or Donnybrook without giving a reason

                  They're a bit funny about it because Bunbury people use the lack of traffic lights and roundabouts etc to get an easier test
                  Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

                  when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

                      Your best bet is to update the booking site every afternoon, especially on Tuesdays and Thursday when the cancellations are put through. Got both my tests within 2 weeks doing it that way, 1 at Cannington and 1 at Willagee.
                      Rest in Peace

                      • ^^^^ This. Just keep logging on around 2pm or 3pm, you'll be surprised how much earlier you can get a slot.

                        • Just got my licence today at Joondalup. Shout out to Conecat for escorting me to my previous test.
