Bike was an Yamaha TY50
Car (if you can call it that!) was a VW Beetle 1303S.
The instructor did look at it twice before agreeing to use it for the test.

Mk1 Escort belonging to the driving school.
Turned out the examiner was the father of one of the girls at school. A really lovely chap - with a very lovely daughter.

1960s Vauxhall Viva, but second time. Apparently I drove too slowly! Have made up for it in later years

Ford Fiesta for me. 2 attempts as I bumped the kerb with my tyres in the reversing part of the 3 point turn. 2 attempts at the bike test too, on a Honda CB200. Locked the rear wheel in the emergency stop.

Passed car test first time, 5 weeks after 17th birthday in 1967. Taught by my father, no formal lessons.
Took the test in Malvern in a Vauxhall Victor with 3 speed column change and umbrella handbrake so hill starts were quite interesting.
