Fair enough; there are some odd rules about. For sure most dark visors are illegal (so your vision is impaired) and not doing a life saver is simply suicide, but I’m not sure I can see why using the kill switch to turn off the bike has anything to do with the test.. .. it’s funny what creeps into legislation..To be honest I don't know, I'm going back some 30 years to when things like this were drummed into me and I never asked why anything. This was among other no-no's on your test such as wearing tinted visors or failing to do the 'life saver'. This was part of my instructor's course which I carried out after that in robotic fashion. It wasn't until some years later that I could see any sense or logic in some of it.
Another thing which is bugging me now, is the fact that from this year your car or bike will fail its MOT if you have LED headlamp bulb(s). I can understand that LED headlamps can blind oncoming traffic, what I don't understand is that vehicle manufacturers fit these things at the factory, and the EU, where our MOT regulations come from, are at the same time phasing out all other types of bulb.
Have a good one!
