Read my mutterings:
they've been operating test routes for some time - there's a polite notice in the test centres asking ADIs NOT to practice on them because of the problem with the public complaining about U turns/E stop/reverse park etc etc..
My job is to teach someone to safely ride a 500cc bike according to the highway code, and make them aware of the hazards they will face and how to negotiate them.For novice riders one of the first things i ask is what will the bike be mainly used for, then i can factor extra time into the course depending on their answers, sunny weeekend rider, we spend time out in the country , city commuter - we spend time in built up and busy areas , this is covered in all courses anyway but i have the time to focus some extra training in these situations.
Freedom of information.Like most things DSA have had to supply and should have made available all the test routes. AFAIK they were recently challeneged because they had not done so.
Bit like having to supply all the questions for the theory test
Test routes being taken off line!
I suppose it would make the 'independent driving' part a lot less tricky if people knew where the routes were!

I did ask how a motorcycle candidate would ask for reminders of directions in the interests of being treated equally with car candidates but have had no reply to date.
