Good luck on your test and stay safe!
Thanks alot mate, yea i only found out recently that the laws are very different your side of the pond. From what i gather your training is basically optional? The laws over here are strict which is a good thing but they are getting a bit overkill come January. Before the 31st you can ride up to 125cc with just your compulsory bike training which is a day course. Them get your full license and you can ride anything as long as its restricted to 33bhp for the 1.st 2 years. After the 31st you will not be allowed to be on the road on any bike without completing a full test. Plus you will be required to do a test for 125, 400, 600, 1000 and 1200cc bikes which tbh i think is a bit much...
