I passed my skills test today,haven't riden in 8 yrs practiced 1hr Sat. and passed. You can mess up a little bit and still pass I put my foot down on U turn and instructor just asked me to do it again. That time I did it fine, He gave me a copy of my test form and it looked as though I could have made another mistake and still passed. But I have to give credit to the bike 89 yamaha virago 250. Its so light and totally gutless it only does things at low speed.
