On FAA 6 month check ride. After several approachs, including single engine INS approachs, engine out emergencys and stall series. Examiner asking many questions on performance etc, I was instructed to do a single engine VOR a approach, circle to land. At MDA I was told to go around for a short field landing another aircraft was taxiing for departure and was not talking on local unicom frequency. Also grass was being mowed along runway. I was distracted and did not notice gear was not extended. I extended flaps to 40 degrees and slowed aircraft to 95 KTS while watching the small transport getting ready to depart. I continued approach and landed with gear still tucked in. I have a procedure that I always lower gear 10 mi or 5 mins out on any approach other than ILS. The stress and distrs caused me to forget the last item on the landing checklist.
