    Wow! I got mine about ten years before this but, from memory, the certificate was just the same!

    I remember this very well indeed...mainly due to the fact that I FAILED!!!

    I was totally gutted

    Needless to say, this left me with such a huge psychological scar, that I made damn sure I passed my driving test the very first time in took it - IN YOUR FACE, RoSPA!!!!

    I remember doing cycling proficiency in about 1980. That pic of the badge brought all the memories flooding back. Our yard was quite big and I remember being very excited when we saw them plotting out the mini course, like a little town!!

    I've still got my badge and certificate which are exactly the same as the ones here Must have been mid '70s and I remember failing it once. This thread is the second time the cycling proficiency test has popped up recently. Watching this, earlier in the week, brought it all flooding back - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vS7hIL8S_aA - Great soundtrack.

    Ah, the Children's Film Foundation, where art thou now?

    Maybe nowadays we should bring back the Cycling Proficiency Test

    What with all the traffic on the roads nowadays & the fact certain cyclists disregard red traffic lights and the like

    There has recently been talk about cyclists having third party insurance & a registration number plate fitted to the bicycle

    But for starters I reckon we should reintroduce the Cycling Proficiency Test

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.
