I guess its down to the people that train you.
dunno ive always taken it personally cos they passed plenty of other people.
really they just wanted to train ppl how to ride a motorbike, plenty of that in the morning and i didnt need it. i needed training on how to use the road. not the rules of the road or which way to go round a roundabout, but just physically being on the road, interacting with cars, getting tailgated etc. freaked me out a bit that i couldnt just bump a curb if things got hairy.
probably makes all the diff if you drive a car. thing is in a car you dont need a fkin cbt to use the road in order to learn how to use the road. you see my point?
then again it turned out that my license had expired when i did it first time, which is the instructors resposibility to check before you go out, invalidates insurance and stuff, so i think they were worried about that.
anyway i just wanted the original poster to get both sides of the story, im sure he will be ok
