  • Do you know the answer??!!

    So I have two questions...

    1.
    How long must you have held your R class for before you can shadow someone or is it relevant to how long you have had your general drivers license?

    2.
    Can your pillion passenger be drunk/have an blood alcohol reading of over 0.05?

    Cheers,
    Jack

    4 years.

    yep.
    As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into.

      1. When you are learning to ride, you must always be accompanied by either:

      A person who holds an instructors licence issued under the Motor Vehicle Drivers Instructors Act 1963; or
      A person who is an instructor in a youth driver education course conducted or supervised by a body authorised b the Director General for that purpose; or
      A person who is authorised (licensed driver) to perform any driving of a kind for which the driving instruction is to be given has held that authorisation for a period of, or periods adding up to:
      in the case of riding a moped, at least 2 years; or
      in an other case, at least 4 years.

      Refer to: Licence to ride a motorcycle <250cc

      2. Not sure, good question though.

      Too sloooooow Kale.

        Are you certain you have to of held your R class for 4 years before you can shadow? I thought the same but got pulled whilst shadowing a friend and neither of us got done. I have not held an R class for 4 years only 1 year

              "A person who is authorised (licensed driver) to perform any driving of a kind"
              Surely that means if you have held a standard drivers license for 4 years... hence the quote, "driving of any kind"

                  It doesn't say "driving of any kind", it says "any driving of a kind".

                    Bear in mind that, if he was an RE learner, you don't even need an R class licence to shadow. But you need to have had your RE for 4 years.

                    And pissy pillions are fine, so long as they aren't going to throw you off course too badly (probably get done for careless) or fall off (probably get done for an unsecure load as well as for your pillion not being on the pillion seat with feet on pegs).

                      If it pleases you, yes you can 'shadow'. The learner will be at risk of penalties - not you.

                      But best you let them know you are not a legal shadow.

                        So what you mean to say is he can't 'shadow', he can follow people around but it's up to them to organise a 'shadow'...

                          No.
                          What he means is that Jack ain't listening because the answer doesn't suit.

                            Re read that... there is a difference between what it actually says and your requoted text.

                            "of A kind".... eg the same kind/class...... not any kind

                              You know what you get for being a hero? Nothing. You get shot at. A little pat on the back, blah blah blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Kids don't wanna talk to you. Get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me kid, nobody wants to be that guy
