19-25 male? If that's the case we had one in my class. Same deal. Kramer always picked on him. It was quite funny I have to admit.

I took my road test 2 days after completing my riding course, got a demerit for taking the right of way in a roundabout (lady stopped in the middle of it and waved me in )

hahaha then you area really screwed. Kramer is a great guy to learn from. I am so glad I took the course.

Speaking of course, does anyone know of a good place where I could rent a bike from? I was hoping I could rent it from PRS for an hour or 2, but Kramer said they cant do that cause of insurance and such. Once you are out of the course you cant use their bikes, unless its for your road test (mine is august 13th) I would like to get at least 1 more ride in between now and then just to get the rust off and some more practice in.

Then you might as well signup for their mock test. My friend took prs back in early april. Never touched a bike since. He took the mock test right before his road test last week. Passed the icbc road test no problem.

yeah I was going to do that for sure. I figured if nothing else, that would be enough just to get some more practice in and see how the whole test will look like.

I think thats all you need...my friend almost never remembered to turn off his signal in the road rides. But he still passed.

How does them letting you use their bikes for your road test work? So if you take the PRS course they will actually lend a bike to you so you could go do your icbc road test?
