In PA, they let us score our own written. Everyone but one short girl who kept falling off of her 250cc was issued a license at the end of the driving portion of the class. My hope was that most of the people in my class wouldn't have the tenacity to actually buy a bike. In my estimation only about 60% should've gotten a license.

I hear that, MMM. I took the PA course, and completely bombed "the box" part of the test but still got licensed. Never got to practice the maneuver before or after the test. Still passed. An additional 10 minutes or so of slow maneuvering practice and I (and everyone else) would have been much safer riders. Some day I'm going to set up some cones in a parking lot.

I took the PA course last Sept, I had ridden scooters before that but didn’t want to ride someone else’s bike until I got the license. There was about 14 people in the class and only 6 of us passed the riding portion. The instructors were cool guys but unforgiving. And to your point MMM, some folks shouldn’t have been on a bike. One woman would hit the horn every time she tried to start the bike, and another almost ran the instructor over twice. As far as I’m concerned I really learned by riding solo in the Philly Navy base for a couple hours a night until I starting feeling confident

The Naval base is great for that. I've ridden all over that area. I used to love to drive up Kelly and just keep going. Some beautiful country out there.
