c/ If you get the slip of paper telling you to teach the pretend pupil how to do U-turns, make him do it twice. That way he is facing the same way as you and you won't make an idiot of yourself trying to carry out your own U-turn
d/ Learn what a Pegasus crossing is
e/ Learn the various traffic light sequences (normal signal, pelican etc), I was tested on that and I got in a right knot despite quoting it correctly the first time, the examiner will try and make you change your mind, stick to your guns.
f/ If handed a slip of paper saying something like ' I am **** who has bought a large BMW but have only ridden it on my drive and fall off when applying the brakes', be prepared. If you let him ride, he WILL fall off in front of you. Get him to switch the engine off, demonstrate the way you want him to brake, then push him along with a dead engine and see that he does it correctly.
can't think of anything else now but I'm sure I will.

1 Varadero/45,000 miles ridden (of 68,000 miles on the bike), it's all still new to me!
