UK: Police take an Online Cycling Test and Mark it Themselves
I have heard it all now.
This bizarre cycling story comes from 'News of the World' (21/09). Thames Valley Police have had the bright idea of asking police to take an online cycling test.
A practical test is not needed. Will questions relate to the Highway Code which has sections for cyclists?
"Cops are being assessed on whether they can ride a bicycle by taking a test online and marking it themselves. Questions include: “Do you wobble when you’re riding along slowly?” and “Can you turn left and right on your bike?” They are also asked if they can get on and off safely. Once officers have ticked all the boxes they must print out a certificate and send it to their boss to prove they passed. The daft “exam”, dreamt up by Thames Valley Police chiefs, is being taken by its officers in Berks, Bucks and Oxfordshire."
Let's call on NP's expertise and see if you can find out whether or not, Britain is the only police force that has this bizarre test (or quiz). Have you filled in the test and if you have, let's be having those questions on here.
Maybe give it to a child of eight to do or we can all pass this 'Exam' at NP.
