The pilot was practicing landings during a proficiency check ride. He was doing a wheel landing, and noticed another airplane holding short. He stated that he tried to expedite clearing the runway at the A-4 taxiway before reaching a speed slow enough to allow for a safe exit from the runway. He hit the brakes hard; the airplane skidded off the runway and the tail hit the taxiway sign. The rear fuselage and empennage sustained substantial damage.
