Question DOL skills test requirements

just scheduled to take the skills test on the 24th and realized my front headlight on my 89 Transalp has been out for awhile and I've been using the high beam instead. Will they mind at the test? My friend has a fully functional bike but its not registered or tabbed yet, maybe I should use his bike with my license plate or something? Thanks

Maybe you should just put a new headlight bulb in you headlight.

They did not even look at my bike when I did the test.

I pull up this part description for the bike head lamp replacement. I suspect you can find this H4 type bulb at most auto parts store. Many choices for Phillips and others.

BULB (12V60/55W)

WTF are you trying to avoid here?

it's a headlamp bulb for fuck's sake and you have 3 days to find a replacement

Maybe you shouldn't be riding motorcycles.

Or you can take a motorcycle safety course... Learn some things, ride some bikes, take your ride test on a bike THEY provide.

Lights are waaaayyyy overated just like Brakes. Just a bunch of gingerbread crap designed to make bikes heavier. Screw the DOL, They don't know Nuthin...

^^^ DOL has reported that since the passage of the law permitting immediate impoundment of the bike if the rider does not have an endorsement, the number of endorsements have gone way up.

FWIW, that's a good thing. Fatalities have gone down. Insurance rates (for me anyway) have gone down. What sucks is the waiting list for donor parts has grown. Whatever were they thinking?

Doesn't buying a WA Discover Pass get you a WA motorcycle endorsement automatically? If not, you could bitch about it here ad nauseam.
