    Help - 6R expiring in 1 month - need advise on full license practical test

    Hi All - haven't ridden for a number of years and have just noticed that my restricted license will expire in a month.

    Can anyone post experience of the practical test for the full, preferably for Wellington? Or note specific things to do or not to do?
    Anyone know if I can get the restricted extended or renewed rather than starting from scratch?
    Is it likely I can book and pass the full practical in a month. Will call on Monday to get an idea of the waiting time when booking.

    My bike is poked, but a work mate will let me borrow his. Went for a test ride last week and grinned for the rest of the day. I forgot how much I love riding.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Not having ridden in years and yet going for full Licence ?
    Not sure if you really want that...
    Opinions are like arseholes: Everybody has got one, but that doesn't mean you got to air it in public all the time....

    Don't see any reason you can't book the test within a month.

    The rest is up to you. And if you have to ask ........

    Do a Bronze Ride Forever Course first. It is $20 and is worth... Well, gold!
    ACC Have funded it for you.
    On this course the instructor will tell you exactly what is missing out of your tools that are keeping you from being safe.

    Then you can book in for your CBTA-F.
    This will assess if you have listened and applied yourself during the course and are riding using the good habits that were taught.

    Hope it all goes well for you.

    Book a session with a CBTA trainer - they will give you feedback on what you need to do to come up to standard to pass the Full test, or whether you are competent enough as is to sit the test.
    Then, book the CBTA-F test with them, with another training session prior (if required).

    Easy peasy.

    If you need advice you are not ready for the test ..

    Sat my full at VTNZ Lower Hutt last year on my brothers bike I had ridden once. Was in a rush since the XR650R I purchased wasn't insured as I only had my restricted. If you can ride and know the road rules it's a piece of piss.

    The testing officer will give you an earpiece to wear, he'll say left, right, pullover, stop etc. Stick to the speed limit, show that you're aware of other road users and don't be a dickhead and you'll be done in ten minutes.
