Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Passed - 46/50. Mind you, I wouldn't have been too worried if I'd failed - there were some pretty daft questions!

46/50

I always get the first-aid ones wrong, and apparently I don't know correct use of flashing headlights.

Hey is it true that on the continent, flashing your headlights means 'Outta my way, I'm not stopping!' rather than then the 'After you, go ahead mate' that we take it to mean in UK & Ireland?

I think is depend the situation. If you go to overtake another vehicle you can flashing your headlights to advert him your intentions or if you are in a junction, and reduce your speed, means: "after you"
Any way in this case I never have any confidence in that the other man understand my signs.

I belive that the law suggests that the only thing that flashing your headlight means is 'I am here'.

In reality (in the UK anyway) I see people 'flashing their headlights' to signal all sorts of things, depending on the situation.

Always a bit dodgy to take much notice, in case you've got the wrong end of the stick.

Either everyone's passed so far or nobody's owning up to failing!

I've never really held much stock in the therory test since my 'revision' consisted of a couple of games of pool with a tasty kiwi bit o' fluff.

If you sit in the left lane on the autobahn doing only a tonne and the big fat Merc behind you is growing bigger by the second while flashing his headlights - it means "Get outta my way!". You're going way too slow for left lane! Shooo...

Lots of danes make that mistake every year during summer holiday - we're simply not used to the way germans execute motorway driving. We're probably seen as clueless amateurs out of our element. Now, shooo!

Admitted, danish driving culture is not the best.
