    Road test and integrated signals

    About to book my road test, but I have and undertail kit and my rear turn signals are the 2 middle lights of my brake lights. Are they going to be cool with that? (allow me to take the test) or do I need seperate turn signals ?

    Everything on your bike has to be legal to use it to take a road test. I once brought my car to take a road test and they wouldn't let me use it because my front driver side and passenger side windows had a slight aftermarket tint.

    My guess is that they probably aren't supposed to let you use it, but maybe if you get a nice test guy he might let it slide. Don't they provide a bike for you to use? When I took mine I had the option of using mine or theirs. I was also hooked up through Action though.

    So to answer your question... you might want to have a backup plan.

    For signals to be legal, they are supposed to be at minimum 6" apart from what I remember someone posting on this site.

    I would phone. At first I was going to say they'd probably be fine with it but now that I remember they check your bike to make sure your signals are working and legal.

    Thanks guys, I'll be calling to book a test next week so I'll obviously ask then.

    Jave: I think you might be right about being able to use on of their bikes. That might be my best solution.

    Signal lights need to be a minimum of 20 cm apart. It is all subjective, some testers will let you get away with it and some will not.

    Make sure you pull a nice catwalk from every stop sign - they say they don't like them but the truth is you can impress them enough like this that they won't say a peep about the signal lights.

    When i did mine, they were more concerned with my flushmounts on the front. They took one look at my clearalternatives integrated rear and didn't say a thing. They expressed concern with the signals on the front, but let me go anyway ....
    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.

    I rode my test with integrated rear signals and flush fronts....they said they were illegal, but they would let 'er go! This was at the location on Lougheed by boundary about 3 years ago.

    same as me.
    I leant my bike to a friend to do the road test.
    The hotbodies flushmounts were "not visible from the front" so he could not do the test until they were "fixed"

    He asked if the back integrated tail lights (clearalternative) was ok and she said: "yes" (legally I know they not)

    If you can spare the effort its worth making it legal in my opnion.
