    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.

    Just failed my 1st TP with 24 points yesterday. 6 points for slow, 8 points for blind spots, 2 points for delay in moving off, 2 points poor acceleration and another total of 6 points for wobbling and wobbling during turn.

    felt completely dazed the rest of the day.

    samick - Thanks for the encouragement. Yes I'll do more RR as I believe that's where most of my points came from. Hope to pass the next time.

Practical lessons can start after attending BTT and RTT lessons (not test) - you don't have to wait for passing.

    I wouldn't practice on your bro's bike if I were you. It's illegal and dangerous. Once you pass a certain stage, you can sign up for self practice sessions. It's almost "free and easy" on your own practice in the circuit. IIRC, self practice is less than $15 per 100min session in BBDC. Better to practice in the circuit (where your test would be conducted) than in carparks (illegal).
    Hi currently i enrol 2b at cdc...14 march will be taking btt test...was wondering if cdc provides self practice sessions too...since i always hear bdc & ssdc have.. thanks...

    That's quite a wait..... Only after I've registered with BBDC, then I realised that ALL driving centres post their available test dates on their websites. For example, if one were to book RTT with BBDC today, the test date would be 17 Mar (2wks wait). CDC is 23 Apr, and SSDC is 01 Apr.

    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.

    Good luck!!

    I suspect that you've never driven or ridden a motorcycle before? Yes, it's a little sensitive the first time you feel the throttle.... But don't worry - you'll get used to it eventually!

    Don't be demoralized! I did my practical 6 at SSDC 4 times when i did my 2B, i just took it as road revision lesson. It's better that you gain all the experience now than during TP this one you don't know that one you don't know

    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.

    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.

    Don't worry. You are not alone. I am 46 years old.
    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.

    I started my 2B on 5 Apr, finally cleared lesson 8.01 on 26 May after the 3rd attempt. TP test booked on 14 June. Hopefully can pass the test.

    Thank you. I will ride very safely, children still schooling.
    Don't give up, the key thing is to have lots of SP/RC/RR before the TP test.

    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!

    Yes, you need to buy the insurance. (Base on your age & the riding experience) If I'm not wrong the price around 1.3k onward (Due to SP is sport bike so abit high fee). Feel free to check with the insurance company for more info.

    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?

    Thanks.

    Which school do you enroll in?

    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.
