To whom it may concern,
I failed the test because my mind was distracted by two things before I was about to perform the last manoeuvre, the hazard swerve. One was making sure that my speed was over 31 m.p.h., and two was having to negotiate an unfamiliar course, that is, for no practical reason, not allowed to be physically rode upon beforehand.
**Therefore, of course, drastically increasing the chances of failure. **
All three of us failed at Uxbridge at a cost of £700, and retests at about another £200 each. That is a lot of money to fail an eight minute test that cannot be ridden.
Why was not I given another go?****Missing the swerve has cost me £250, and then forced me to redo the test at £200 again.
**Why cannot riders warm up on the course, a good half hour, beforehand to get it right? ****It is totally ridiculous, and unnecessarily expensive, to keep coming back, just because there is no way of getting on the DSA's stupid coned course. **
