My friends, it was not my intention to cause such a stir over the test I took so hopefully I can clarify some things. The testers did not lie to me or mislead me in any way. They make it a point that they do not provide instruction during the test since by not taking the course, I implied that I didn't need any. In fact, there was a woman in front of me who was riding a trike and they were very patient with her through the test, which she ultimately failed. I emphasize again, I was very impressed with these guys and have no complaint against the school. In fact they are trying to develop a three wheel advanced course of instruction that I will take when it is ready. It is the responsibility of the state and not the school to publish the testing criteria on the state web site. Concerning my decision not to take the course, as one who has been riding for over 50 years with some limited experience on three wheels, I decided to ride a bit and talk to more experienced three wheel riders prior to my decision on taking the class. Also keep in mind that the requirement for a special endorsement is not that old in Washington with many states, to include California, not requiring it. I read the Yellow Book cover to cover so that I thoroughly understood the very different dynamics of ride a hack. My first venture onto a state road was almost scary with me drifting into the opposing lane before I remembered that I actually had to steer the thing. By the third day I was very comfortable with it and made every outing a practice session. I also spent some time in parking lots practicing different maneuvers and regularly flew the car on a couple of local streets in turns. By flying it I meant that I lifted the wheel a bit through the turn. As Drone knows (because I called him right after my incident), I wound up across the road and in the woods when I was flying the car in a turn and suddenly a deer and fawn were right in front of me. I option was to hit the deer or sharpen my turn, which I did, and suddenly was faced with a car way up in the area and the thought of it coming over. I pulled to the left, slowing as it came down and off the road I went resting up against a tree. I was only slightly injured. With all this, while I believe education is always very helpful, I don't believe the course should be mandatory. To me flying a car is akin to doing a wheelie in that it borders on being a stunt, the latter of which I have done many times in the last 50 years but under now way would I do so now. Had I known that it was not part of the test (dumb me. I didn't ask earlier) I would never have done any. Edit: And the school apparently wants to do a video of the riding test for the DOL to post. I don't know if the DOL even wants one but I am composing a letter to the director with my recommendations.
