Failed motorcycle manöverprüfung [BASEL]


Not my favorite day of the year, I failed this morning my motorcycle manöverprüfung for Licence A in Münchenstein (Basel).

Here is my reflexion and something I would like to ask:

I failed because I did not meet the examinator expectations. However it was not like if put a foot on the ground, or was incapable of turning in circles etc... the reasons are more subtle and more detail-based than obvious mistakes (apart for parking the motorbike, I did not know I was supposed to lock the front and remove the keys... cost me the manoeuver #1). In the end I know I did not do well-enough but... I wished I could assess better !

Hence my idea: maybe someone on this forum is also failing/preparing to pass this test around Basel. I thought of training a bit together with someone in that parking I usually go for slow driving stuff in Basel. And we would use my actioncam to record each other to be able to SEE how we are doing.

>> I always found it very powerful to actually see myself doing instead of feedbacks and their limits.

Indeed if someone experienced was ready to help me once I would be glad (and it would save me some $$ of VIP lessons).

Let me know ?

Re: Failed motorcycle manöverprüfung [BASEL]

Failed my practical test today so I understand how you feel.
The value of using a professional for at least 1 session before the exam is just to get the "tricks" on how to pass and also on what to expect from the examiner.
I did one for my Manöverprufung but neglected it for the practical.
It's not the end of the world!
