    Test options - what should i do

    Right i want some opinions.

    Iv been riding for nearly 4 years on 50cc for 1 year, then 125cc bikes since.

    My cbt runs out about 1st april and theory runs out about october next year.

    My local test center can fit in test anytime and waiting time is approx 4 days.

    the test is 60.00 per go.

    However my local training center do the following -
    1 day course + test - 230
    2 day course + test - 360
    or 1 day lesson with out test 150

    Is it worth me doing it? or should i just book my test and go for it?

    Cheers.

    Yea i was thinking the 1 day course and test, just to brush up on the little things,

    thing is its soo tempting to just take a test at 60 quid, if i fail then do the course?

    might be worth a pop?

    Best thing to do is do a hour (or day of lessons) befor the Test as the people who train you know exactly whats needed to pass the test

    did that with my car test (hour b4 then test) passed 1st time (twice)

    1 Day of lessons ON TEST DAY

    Looks like you can do a 1 day lesson, then pay for the test at 20 less than test and lesson.

    You need the lesson to make sure that you know what the examiner will be looking for.

    Yeah as said, do atleast a lesson so the instructor can tell you what to do and what not to do.

    I had 3 days (9am - 4pm) training at 270 thats with use of their bike then another 58 for test fee.
