Could you pass the test?

Discussion in 'UK Motorcycles' started by Whinging Courier, Feb 24, 2005.

  1. Just for a bit of fun, I took a DSA mock theory motorcycle test. (Motorcycle Test 1)

    I scored 34/35 :-D

    Then I took the test again but with the answers that I'd use in the real
    world. Unfortunately, options such as "Give them V-signs", "Nick the
    casualty's bike" and "Burn your scooter" weren't available so I had to
    go for sensible options with these types of questions.

    Still, not bad:

    25/35. Still a fail.

    Bored? Go on, have a go!

    So what should I do if I break down in a tunnel?

    34/35 too. Not too bad seeing as I passed car test in 1966 and bike in

    34 and 33.
    Turn on your hazard warning lights and go for help, it seems.

    Or, in most cases ... Wander to the nearest shops. Buy some electrical
    components and tools. Return to your bike. Wander to the nearest library
    and ask to borrow "Electronics for dummies". Walk home and get some proof
    of address. Walk back to the library. Join the library. Ask again to
    borrow "Electronics for dummies". Wait while the 108 year old librarian
    tries to find it on the computer. Talk about the weather. Go and read the
    periodicals. Stick the latest "National Geographic" inside your jacket
    while the 108 year old librarian tries, for the eighteenth time, to type
    "dummies". End up borrowing "Advance guidance circuit design in fixed wing
    aircraft". Walk halfway back to bike. Get bundled into the back of a van
    by several large blokes wearing dark suits and sunglasses. Answer lots of
    questions about why you're buying bomb making equipment and books about
    aircraft design. Make pledge of allegiance, sing the entire US national
    anthem and promise to vote Republican. Ask the dark suited blokes to drop
    you near your bike. Attempt to wire up hazard warning lights in a tunnel in
    the middle of the night using only the light from your digital watch.
    Thirty hours after originally breaking down turn on hazard warning lights.
    Remember that the US Secret Service took your mobile so that you couldn't
    use it detonate bombs. Walk back to shops and use phone box to call the AA.
    Explain to AA bloke that the "retard" who "complete fucked" your bike's
    electrics was you, but that was _after_ it broke down. Watch AA bloke turn
    petrol tap to "Reserve" and start bike at first attempt. Ride home.
    Discover that there is no way to turn off your newly fitted hazard warning

    Or is that just me?

    33, and 33. Dammit. Got screwed cos I didn't know you must always use yer
    steering lock when parked (???), and cos I DON'T HAVE ANY HAZARD LIGHTS!!!
    And cos since when did they make bikes smaller than 50cc? And I passed my
    test 12 years ago so I don't know about the bloody paperwork.

    34 as well.

    When leaving your motorcycle parked you should always...
    "use the steering lock"

    WTF is that all about? Am I missing some road safety related feature of
    the steering lock or do learners actually get taught and tested on
    crime prevention now?

    OK, so it's a bit dumb. But it was a multiple choice question and all of
    the other answers were obviously wrong.

    I guess it is as an anti-theft measure, although most steering locks are
    pretty pathetic, and I'd certainly never use one if I've got a *proper*
    lock with me.

  17. It was the four part tyre question that got me, but what size but it's
    on should make any difference; a duff tyre is a duff tyre.

    IIRC it makes a difference on the tread requirement. I think mopeds
    only have to have a visible tread pattern - but I'm not a moped rider
    so ICBW.

    On test #2 it asks about Learners and pillions. I thought learners
    could carry pillions if they had a full licence. It would appear not
    though - was this ever the case? I'm sure it was...
