Did/passed the bike test in 1978, one week after 17th birthday on a 98cc Excelsior Consort with a 2 speed villagers engine. The bike is still in the garage! I was lucky enough to have ridden bikes since I was 8. My dads friend took care of a school, where he would let me ride round the playground at weekends and school holidays..couldn’t get away with that now!
Didn’t bother with car test until 1988, the then wife could drive so if we needed to be in a car I let her or I’d drive with L plates on for years.
Eventually took some lessons and passed on first attempt in the driving schools Citroen BX 14. A much under rated car I think..
