Live road tests are subject to so many variables they can't possibly reflect the riders full set of skills. Don't let it get you down Thatch, although 200 for a re-test sounds incredibly harsh. Iirc my test centre offered free re-test (back in the late 2000's).

Visor fogging - if you get the chance, borrow or try a pinlock. The only solution I found that actually works. Nobody would pass a test with a fogged up visor, even Foggy Fogarty. With all the stress and faffage of a mod2 test the slightest hint of rain and a normal visor will be clouded. Give yourself a chance and with sods law, as soon as you sort out a better visor the sun will shine and you'll be tickets-boo.

Other things that helped me with my test was checking the bike over whilst waiting. Don't know why but giving it a once over in the car park seemed to settle me down a bit and I think perhaps the instructor might have spotted this and it gave a positive impression...because I was sure I failed when I got pulled out on by a bus.

Costly price of 200 for a resit makes me cringe though... But yeah. I honestly feel like today wasn't meant to be. The guy before me had sunshine and passed. The second I planted my ass on the seat it pissed down all day. Visor steamed up etc and just added to make it harder. Only had 4 minors otherwise so I guess easy mistakes to correct.

Metzler Roadtec Z6
9500 miles+
Sedate Riding Style/Commuting Touring & Exploring
Don't take a pillion enough to mention.

Got that mileage on 2 sets and have switched to the Roadtec 01s. Pricey tyres so hoping for similar mileage.

I check my pressures daily....change them to suit being fully loaded or not. Seems to work for me.

Ah, bad luck mate. :003:. I just thought of another tip, if you are coming into a 30mph zone a bit 'hot' brake but release the brakes on the line because the examiner can't tell from where he is that you are a couple of mph too fast. Sometimes you have to make it ridiculously obvious that you are making your observations, you know you've looked but perhaps the examiner has to be sure. Don't give up and you WILL get there. :biker1:
