Testing always seems so much simpler here in the US: you take a quick test in a parking lot somewhere, never achieving any sort of speed or interacting with, for example, actual roads or traffic. Following ten or fifteen minutes of messing around, they grant you a license endorsement which allows riding any size or shape motorcycle at any speed under all conditions....forever.
Of course, the price we pay for all this simplicity is that none of us really know much about riding bikes. Oh, that and the fact that all the car and truck drivers are similarly ignorant, but hey, it's America.
Enjoy your new life!
