Doing what? you may ask.
I've wanted to get my full motorbike licence for a while now but have always found reasons not to actually commit to the training. I think it is due to a fear of failing. Probably the same reason I haven't taken any professional exams recently :-o
I came quite close to doing it last year but kidded myself that we should save up for a boat upgrade instead.. yeah right! that was never gonna happen.
Well yesterday I booked my Theory test for Friday 15th April at 09:30 and today I sent of the payment for a 1to1 training course. It's quite a convoluted path to obtaining a full unrestircted licence. You have to have passed a Motorcyle Theory test before you can take your Motorcycle Practical Test.
Before you can take your Practical Test you obviously have to have training but your not allowed on the road until you've passed your CBT or compulsory basic training. Because I'm doing direct access training and will be able to ride any size motorbike once I've passed I'm allowed to train on a 500cc bike but have to always be accompanied by a qualified instructor or the public roads.
Hopefully I'll be doing the CBT in early May with the training shortly after. I've yet to decide if I should do it over a few weekends or just do it over an intensive 3 or 4 days. I'll update my progress as I go along.
