I would like to extend a huge thank you to all who posted in this thread and I absolutely appreciated all the support, well wishes and dm's I received. I am happy to say that I am back from Barrie with a full M endorsement on my license. Was so nervous that I thought I was going to puke right before the test. It seems it was all for naught, as I passed with only 3 errors! The tape on the helmet, tape for the earpiece and and earplug for other ear helped immensely. I also taped the volume control, as the two riders before me said it turned down in their jackets. Thanks again everyone!

Awesome! Congratulations, I don't think I've seen anyone with only 3 marks. :)

It also didn't help that I was there over an hour early, and saw no less than 3 people fail their G test.

Haven't been on a bike in almost 2 years and borrowing a buddies bike to take the test Thursday in Kitchener.
Wish me luck.

I passed a couple of weeks ago at downsview. No helmet tape necessary. Look with your head and not with your eyes. Ie bobblehead as everyone says. Correct tire tracks. Pretty simple if you ride properly you will pass no problems. Route at downsview was across sheppard, down allen, onto 401 off at keele, into residential area, emergency stop. back up keele, across sheppard back to drivetest center.

Congrats! ^^^^
Tape helps if helmet is solid colour. My tester said he has never had someone move their head as much as I did. Lol

Congrats Joe! I'll never forget my examination... Left my Sena on with my GPS connected. My GPS was constantly blasting directions the entire examination, was so confusing.

Examiner and I had a chuckle about it afterwards... I felt like a total ding-dong... :p

Now your flaming Ice Cream Joe???LOL

Flame encrusted ice cream...you know, this could become a thing. Actually, someone told me about a sushi place doing deep fried ice cream with bananas...I'm not sure if the sob was bs'ing me or not.

I just passed at Metro East (Lawrence ave. East). The route was right on Lawrence, right into a residential/shopping area, out of there, up the DVP, off the first exit, back down the DVP to Lawrence and back to the drive centre. There were plenty of hazards: Lawrence buses (change lanes if there is one ahead and change back after passing the bus), side streets, pedestrians, kids on skateboards, so bobble-headed LRLing was the norm.

I made 6 errors, five in turning. The instructions for turning are on the MOT site. I recommend reviewing them as there are plenty of ways to get points while turning. Well, for me at least. I also got a point for accelerating after acceleration lane. The DVP was a bit crazy and speeds were not consistent so this was a tough point to avoid, but certainly possible to avoid with better planning. The instructions on the MOT site repeatedly warn against riding at less than 15kmh because of stability but I had to on the DVP south (rather than, say, 0-20-0 repeatedly). No points for that.

Sound quality was excellent throughout. I taped the back of my solid white helmet. Not a difficult test, but requires 100% concentration. Kinda like every day motorcycling.

Thanks to all who contributed to this thread. Now, who can beat Joe Bass' amazing three-pointer?

Hey guys I have a quick question, I'm doing my test in late June in London, not too concerned but the one thing that has me wondering, they say to not shift throughout a turn, well I ride a 2011 ninja 250, and in large intersections I always shift to 2nd and the first gear on the 250 is so damn short, so it it OK to say start moving a d shift to second right away before you start the turn?

My understanding is that you should ride out first gear until you have completed the turn and are in the lane. I stayed in first, high revs, completed the turn, turned off signal, and then switched gears. The changing of gears in the intersection is a mark against/ unsafe action.

Thanks Joe that is pretty much how I understood it as saying, like I said my first gear is so short, much more than your bike, maybe I will just leave my bike in second at stops for the test. I can take off just fine in second. Thanks for the reply, maybe some other could chime in as well.
