    There are two parts to the theory then the CBT and then the Direct Access which is in 2 parts.

    Bikewise I've got a 2003 Honda Hornet 600cc which comes back from its service this weekend

    yeah the 2 tests are a pain in the arse, main thing is dont panic about the swerve!

    I passed at the beginning of last august on a 125cc bike (was 20 at the time and was too impatient to wait until tuesday just gone to do my non-restricted test) and the swerve is easy. You dont need to do any kind of scandanavian flick to get through it at all like a lot of people seem to think, its quite a gentle swerve. Main thing is, DONT BRAKE EARLY! you need to go through the speed gate at 32mph(i think?) and then round the swerve.. i know a few people braked just before the speed gate to do the swerve earlier but wernt doing the required speed anyway.

    @ Mattx, Modular One, which is bike manouvering is about 10-20ish, Mod2, which is on the road, is 70-90. Plus theory fee of about 35. It isnt cheap, thats for sure.

    I can't remember how much I paid for mine - all I did was drive in a tennis court for 10 mins, which was the first part, then the second part was a test with an instructor which lasted about 30 mins.
