the pass is the main thing...make sure you get your licence this week if you have not already as the 2 years starts from the date on the licence not the test...and if you have not yet informed your insurance company do it now as your might get a discount...
something to keep in mind, when i passed my test i was told by the instructor i did my bit and pre test with that its a good idea that you do a course about 2 years after your pass, so just when the restriction is up.
I passed my test last october and am scheduled to do an intermediate course in september this year, as i have some time off work then and want to give it a shot, keep it in mind and maybe next year think about it...
