Go for it al u won't regret it and it hardly costs anything.
For me, it was more an increasing sense of my own mortality than wanting cheaper insurance but I think it makes 10 - 15% dif. As for the test, it's a 90 min ride on all kinds o roads and you are expected to show good forwArd planning, road positioning, safe overtakes etc whilst making good progress. I know from talking to ian about it in Scotland he also had to ride round some cones but that seems to be not the norm in my area at least. Slow riding is part of it but that can be demonstrated on the road so seems pointless riding round cones.
My observor also races and has a pass for hotrax track days and has kindly offered to give me some tips on the track next so looking fwd to that!

Cheers
