Wondering if any of you expats have learnt to ride a motorcycle here?
What riding school did you use and were you happy with the school and the instructors?
I have. I have gone through the whole courses 2b, 2a and 2.
I have done it in the Bukit Batok Driving Centre (was closest to my place), but I don't think it matters.
The instructors within the school were roughly at the same level. Generally reasonable. The courses and the tests highly emphasise on the technique (well, some aspects of it). They are mostly to prepare you to the road tests but you will learn basic riding for sure. You do it on your own pace, you can (or have to) repeat units, you can get some extra time (paid) on the circuit if you want to practice. I think it is generally ok.
I took it over 10y ago, but I don't expect anything changed significantly. Whether one finds it difficult / in what time you may be able to complete depends IMHO on the person (specific type of the predispositions required).
