    One thing that I'm interested about is the directions the instructor gives you. I know in Australia (at least in the cage test), that we were told that the instructor might tell you `turn left here' but if you turned right instead, but did it legally using your indicators etc, it was completely fine. Is it the same here? Because it's quite likely I will fuck up his directions, or not see his indicators in my mirrors.

    the old fella that took mine in westgate AA used a one way radio - ear piece went in my ear and little walkie talkie in my jacket pocket. Told me to nod my head when he gives me an instruction so that he knows its been heard/understood. I still managed to take a wrong turn... "turn right by the white truck" ..white truck moves.. i go wrong way..

    it's a piece of cake to pass it, the hardest part is not being nervous!

    I was as nervous as hell. I passed through gritted teeth and biting of toungue. The instructor was a grumpy old cunt with no patience. He gave me directions too quickly, and when I tried to confirm, he was very short with me. The traffic was very busy and I lost him for about 10 seconds. When he caught up after I stopped, he went on at me for not waiting for him..and how was he going to test me if I wasnt going to wait. There was no safe place to pull over...he was a dick! The next part I rode slower so that he wasnt left behind...then he complained that i was going too slow!..he was a dick!

    I still passed. ..hes still a dick

    Glad you passed, dont worry about him now! Have cerimonial burning in the back garden of your L flap ...or just take it back to the shop and get your money back

    I thought that when sitting your restricted test, its the only legal time you can travel at 100kmp/h instead of 70? Its actual legislation, Im damn near positive.

    Nope because you still ON your learners license.

    ONCE you have passed the restricted test, then and only then can you legally do 100kph on the motorway.

    So, if the instructor, wants you to go on the motorway or open road to do your restricted, you MUST NOT go over 70kph.

    Well I never had to go on the m-way for my restricted, I don't think many people do. I just rode around Browns bay for 10mins

    Actually no, I found the legislation I was sure existed, and for those of us who will be sitting restricted licenses, its perfectly legal to travel at 100kmph in a 100 zone.

    Land Transport (Driver Licensing) Rule 1999
    Part 4 Learner licences, restricted licences, and full licences (r 15 to r 19)

    [(d)in the case of a Class 6L licence, where the holder is riding a motorcycle, the holder—

    (i)must display on the vehicle an “L” plate as specified in clause 66; and
    (ii)must not—

    (A)drive between the hours of 10 pm and 5 am; or
    (B)drive at a speed exceeding 70 km/h, unless taking the restricted licence test for a Class 6R licence under clause 48(5); or
    (C)drive a motorcycle that has a total piston displacement exceeding 250 cm3; or
    (D)carry another person on the motorcycle or in a sidecar attached to the motorcycle]

    70km

    I sat my restricted a couple of months ago, before we started the tester said to me that part of the route is an 80km limit and for the test im allowed to exceed my 70km restriction , I did , I also passed my test. so i guess it depends on the person testing you ,
    P.S the only time I ever had an L plate on was for my test

    It shouldn't matter who the person is, for the test according to Law as posted your allowed, and they can't make their own standards of the law.

    On the same subject of the restricted, though Iv got a few months yet, Im not too keen to do it on the KR. Its only got one mirror, and the speedo is really shakey, I wouldn't be able to see signals behind me if I needed to. Any hints on where I can borrow a bike from more suited to the restricted test?

    If there is a motorbike riding school near you, you should be able to hire their bikes for the test
