    Hi, can you please give me some info on tonight's the practice session in Kambah? I have a re-test booked on Saturday and I haven't practiced since I failed it almost a year ago so I'm very interested to go.

    The location can be found here:

    3. Kambah - This one is in the carpark on Jenke Circuit just down from the Caltex servo. This one is in good nick. Someone has kindly repainted parts of it recently. There is some crap on the bitumen at the quick stop that may impede your ability to stop quickly, but it is safe. Saturday and Sunday afternoons are generally quiet, but there is a church (or something similar) at the other side of this carpark, so it can get busy at times.

    Not sure if any experienced riders are coming along, either way, we'll be there having a go
    :)

    Apologies everyone for having to leave abruptly. My wife received sad news about her father in the UK last week, so after a long day at work, her head just isn't in the game to tackle MOST practice at the moment.

    On a brighter note, is was great meeting fellow riders

    Understandable - was also very hot. Happy to catch up and try again before your test if you feel it would be helpful.

    Good luck for tomorrow, the rain really won't be an issue, actually better than the stupid heat we've had recently. I haven't kept up to date as I should have, did you guys get any full licence riders out to give you a hand? Seems to have dropped of a bit.

    keep your arms loose the whole day, relax & listen to the instructions (ask if you are unsure about *anything*).
    good luck.

    Thanks guys. We did have one P plate rider come along (sorry dude, I can't remember your name), which was very helpful and much appreciated.

    True, rain would be better than sweating it out in the blazing sun. So hopefully by this time tomorrow, the missus and I will be added to the ranks of Provisional licence holders - woohoo

    It's all doable in the rain, including the emergency stop.
