@idynamic, bro which school did you take your 2b?
To all 2b learner riders! don't give up! eventually you will get your license.
I took 5 months and even jump school. There was sometimes where I nearly give up on figure 8 lesson but lucky did not.
We pledge to ride safely and stay alive.
Honda Phantom TA200
Honda Cb400 Spec 2 Super 4
Honda CB400 Revo Super 4

Still waiting for Lesson 3 at SSDC.
I was really glad that my Class 2B military license and experience helped me to clear Lesson 2 in session.
Haven't even take TP already looking for bikes to buy.
I guess that's normal for most of us. Haha!
Hey guys, enrolled 2B at SSDC. Done with my BTT & RTT. I'm currently stuck at Lesson 5, 4th try and still fail. First try was night lesson, I'm usually a very nervous person therefore made alot of mistakes and failed first try as I didn't change lane properly, never check for safety before U turn. 2nd try did improve abit but still not much confidence, 3rd try I did very well except when last part heavy rain then when last U-Turn my bike skidded cos I turn too low and I had to bring out my right foot in order not to fall, 3rd try and 4th try had one old chinese instructor which is the guy who examines us from behind, really mean and talks as though we owe him a living. Starting alr kena scolding and felt very demoralised, My 4th try I was first rider and the gui lan chinese instructor was the one infront, where I started to do silly mistake was when instructor was in front he checked safety once and changed to the left lane, I checked saftey and change to 2nd lane and checked safety again then when I got to first lane, I had to brake hard and was like right beside him. Nobody taught me how to check safety once and change lane twice. He scolded me and I felt very demoralised and made mistakes throughout the whole lesson. Felt very demoralised. Any help guys? I plan to go for CR before my Prac5, want to brush up. I mean I really don't mind repeating as I did make mistake, but the comments and looks he give makes me really demoralised and make me think like "aiya this lesson fail la". Please do point out any tips and any important skill or thing to take note of. Thanks
I think the biggest tip is to keep trying and ignore the negativity. Learnt this skill during NS. Hahah. Don't worry. Some people take longer than others to get through. Keep your goal in mind - that's your 2B license. Everything else doesn't matter. When I was doing my 2B lessons, I treated each session like a theme park ride. Doesn't matter pass or fail - because eventually, I'm certain that I'll eventually pass. I was enjoying the feel of riding.
did my first practical yesterday, i found it hard to control and maintain the throttle,its very sensitive.
instructor asked me to redo the first lesson again, hopefully can do it tomorrow
and the bikes at bbdc are 2 month old honda cb125f
yeah its my first time. but towards the end of the lesson i had better control though sometimes a bit jerky
Yeah thanks a lot for the encouragement guys, I'm actually a good rider as in know how to handle the bike but when I do 1 mistake, I tend to get the mentality where "aiya sure repeat" then everything I do after that is a noobie mistake. I guess I will have to work on it, thanks alot guys. Yes I'll not give up and take it as a lesson.
Already spent 1k... TP on 18 Apr. Just don't give up, take it as life lesson fees lol
Thanks man, I currently at about 600++. Only left Prac 5,6,7 then can book TP already. All the best for your TP bro !
Finally cleared first practical after 3 tries.
BTT next week
Nice bro, usually it takes 2-3 times for prac 1, mostly depend on the rest too. Btw which school are you in?
I'm with bbdc.
Using new Honda cb125f
Failed my first try at prac 2.01 today and the next one is Friday 7:30 am and next Monday evening. Can only got for next Monday one.
The hill start I always forget to signal right.
And the instructor a bit CB kia
And anyone know each stage has how many practical lessons??
Because the brochures and websites just put stage 1-5, never say got how many lessons for each stage
I am interested to hear experience from fellow "uncles" taking 2B at 54 years old.
Glad I found this tread...very encouraging. I was about to give up. I think I will continue...
Started in Feb and done 20 practical already. Now only at 3.02. Fail this 4 time already...Very tough for me. Last Sat did it in the thunder storm some more.
I feel so tense at each lesson. After each lesson, my elbow hurts real bad and wrist is weak.
Started my 2B lesson at BBDC on 5 Apr 16, and need to do twice for lesson 1.02 and 2.02. Going for 3.01 tomorrow. Already cleared TP riding theory test last week.
Everytime after bike lesson, my right knee hurts. Getting old.
Actually, i have tried learning bike at SSDC when i was 17 years old. Completed Lesson 5 and then need to go army. Never had a chance to ride a bike till now. And i need a bike, my car is going to expire next Jan, cannot afford to pay for car COE. Also no $$$ to buy 2nd hand car.
i had to do my 2.01 5 times, 4th lesson was a free practice.
2.02 im doing my third time this tuesday.
plan to finish in june
So glad i found this thread! I just started learning not too long ago at SSDC. Hoping to learn as much as quickly as possible to get my first bike by the end of this year! Now i know i can come to you guys if i have any problems

Not sure where to ask this, but how's does sub rider insurance work??
I'm planning to share my brother's nsr150. If I put my name as sub rider do I still need to pay for insurance and how much? I'm 19yo this year, and no riding experience. Getting licence soon this month I hope.
Just to share my experience as a 2B learner.
When I turned 50 this year, I told myself go learn some skills each year. And it has always been my dream to ride a motorcycle. So I took up the 2B program at BBDC. I passed my 2B test early this month.
For me (maybe not so applicable to many others), I learnt because of interest, not so much I really needed the license, so the mindset was different. I did not rush through the program. Have to repeat some modules here and there, but I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons. I learnt new things and techniques each time.
My one advice to new learners is to listen to the instructors' teaching, think about what they are saying, internalise what it means and practice it. Near towards the end of my learning, I realised how important it was to "grip the tank", "control the half-clutch" and "look far". These basic stuff really helped me to pull through the technical part of riding (plank, s-course etc). Once you can control the bike at slow speed, the technical part is easy, the moving off and stopping is easy. Once you are no longer struggling about the technical part, you will find you have lots of time to check blind spots, check this and that, off the signals etc.
So the bottomline is this - focus on the basics so that you can ride like a rider should! Dun be too anxious to go to the technical modules. And I wish all an enjoyable and safe riding experience!

Just enrolled for 2B. Got a car license already and now going for a bike license. For the first Circuit Orientation, what do I need to bring along? Also does the clutch biting point for a bike feels the same vibration and such as a car clutch biting point?
Honestly, I'm so enthusiastic to go for my lesson to be honest. I've seeing people ride and such my NS mates and such really interest hence I decided to enroll 2B. I read the Handbook for Motorcycle Rider, I try to imagine the clutch,gearing and throttle but it seems so much for than a car. Any tips even though I've not ride or tried a bike before? Like example, usually for car last time, I would accelerate a bit and then release clutch to prevent any kind of engine stall, can this be applied to bikes too?
Myself is BBDC and just started 2B too. Just remember to bring along IC, wear long sleeves, long pants, cover shoes and the liner if you are not using your own helmet.
The way cluth and accelerator (throttle in bike) synchronize with each other I would say i exactly the same as how car works.
Personally feel that the vibration of biting point for bike is less than a car.
For me, who knows bicycle and motorcar, and never ride a bike before, the first difficult thing is to get used to the front brake where you cant press it abruptly.
