Martin,

BMW bied 'n k35 kursus aan (2 ure dink ek) dis R200 of so, ek het nog net goeie terugvoer gehad daarvan  (http://www.bmw-motorrad.co.za/xtra/academy/default2.asp) Ek dink dit is die beste opsie, en gaan dit definitief binnekort self doen.

Groete

Is this a learners you going for??

The BMW course for the actual test is gr8, also helps if you not goign in PTA/ Centurion to go with a local driving school as they know what each test grounds is looking for, but learners is quite easy.

Where have you booked?

Bla-Bla Black Sheep's got my book so you can get it from him if you want to. Just Pm him and make arrangements.  

Is this learner's or the practical?

If learner's, do your study work! Do not think you can do it without doing studying. It gets confusing once you have to choose an answer between three options and all are close to the truth. Its not a simple matter of Easily identifiable signs which we see in everyday commuting. Theory/rules/signs/combinations of signs/road marks etc.

I still have to do the practical and would definately do a course for this. Most licensed guys I know advised this. It's not about you not able to ride and handling the bike but rather being prepared for the specific tests that you need to pass. They are very strict on certain things and fail you immediately for example, if you let the bike move backwards at any stage and touch/cross any of the lines on the test sections.

Good luck!

Hi

I did my test at the Centurion test center.  They are a reasonable bunch, and will not fail you unless you pay them. (Like some other testing centers I have heard of)

Have a look at
http://www.flamesonmytank.co.za/navigation.htm

Find a parking lot and practice your emergency stops and lane switching. The important this is your speed, practice this. Most of it will be in first gear.

Good luck.

Later

Pleasure, please excuse the typo's, was not concentrating, just got back from a solo flight where I had an engine failure.... not fun, but I am still alive, and the helicopter is unharmed. Happened about ten feet of the ground, so I just needed to land.
