Practise patterns at local motorcycle school

I have seen practise courses at local motorcycle schools with lines already painted on the ground to prepare students for the test.

IIRC, the book Total Control by Lee Parks has practice drill layouts. Not sure if they are still in favor with current training instructors but I remember finding them helpful and even had a meet ups with other barfers to do practise days. It was fun.

Livermore is a bit out of the way for you, but Chabot College has a circle and some other stuff painted in their parking lot. Not sure if it's the DMV approved size or not, I got my endorsement in 1975 (wow, seeing the date really makes me feel old). I use their parking lot to do low speed drills as I'm getting back into street bikes after riding exclusively off road for the last 20 years or so...Best of luck...
