Rent a motorbike with a UK driving licence

Postby tmphuc » Mon, 25 Sep 2017 5:43 pm

Hey guys,

I have an UK motorbike driving licence and want to rent a motorcycle here in Singapore, as I only stay here for a few months. I hate all the trouble of buying a bike and then just selling it later.

Any recommendations for renting a bike here? I heard good recommendations for Aloride.com - anyone has tried? Please give feedback here.

I don't think you can rent a motorbike in Singaproe on a foreign licence. What pass are you on here? You may get away with buying or renting a Malaysian bike if you're not a PR or PEP or EP holder.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

Looks like rental is possible.

Based on past experience, the rental will cost out the wazoo.

That is totally possible. LTA allows you to use your driving license without converting for up to 12 months here.

On their website https://aloride.com they also said that foreign license is okay.

Sure, it will be costly, but still better than buying a bike here and then selling it 3 months later. Too much hassle, including insurance and stuffs.
