So I went for my road test yesterday and they failed me. Not because of my lack of riding skills but because of the bike. I was on a Honda Shadow. I'm so mad about it. The Shadows saddle bags were apparently "crossing the centre line" riding and around corners. So I failed.
So there is no other appointments in the next 2 weeks so I need to go to the motor vehicle branch on my next day off and sit there all day to be on Standby. Which means I could be there all day for nothing.
My learners expires the day we get back from holidays so if I can't get in to a Standby appointment then I'll have to do the whole process all over again. Go for the written, go for the skills test then do a road test again.
I'm so mad they failed me for such a dumb reason. Richmond exam. Sucked big time.
It had nothing to do with the examiner & everything to do with your vehicle placement choices (read...riding skills) . You were obviously riding almost on top of the centre line. NO part of your bike is permitted to be on the wrong side of the road. IF a vehicle had been driving towards you on their side of the road, you would have hit them. That is considered a "Dangerous Action". It would also be scored as "lane position". You should know not to ride that close to the centre line. You need more training and awareness as a rider if you did not see your riding position as dangerous...let alone "Dangerous". You should get someone to show you, who knows how to properly position your bike on the road or it's going to get you hurt, even if you survive another road test.
