Yep !

Police often make these for practice or as an exam for future officier on bikes.

edit: Here in france, The first part of riding licence is a sort of gymkhana, And after you have an other part within the traffic.

The test in Sweden also includes it. One is a low speed test (walking pace basically), the other (slalom) one is a high speed test (at least 50 km/h past the starting point), and you stop at the end within the designated area.

You also do high speed emergency braking in a straight line (70 km/h or 100 km/h - don't remember exactly), and then you ride in traffic. In the old days, you needed to do a garage turn as well (180, full steering lock in walking pace), and the high speed was different, after the first slalom part you rode in a straight towards the finish and did an emergency brake. Now you slalom both ways.

In Italy too, for driving license, the first part is sort of gymkhana with a slalom and an 8 and other things.
Gymkhana races in Italy are usually done with scooters or small bikes, my dad did a lot of these races in '70s and '80s with his friends with Vespa, Ancillotti 50, an italian moped called Minicaliffo and other bikes with good placements

there's an example (found random on youtube)
