motorcycle licence

Post by peter123 » Tue, 24 May 2005 3:06 pm

I want to ride a motorbike in Singapore. I have a Singapore car licence but dont want to go through the process of getting a bike licence here as it can take 3 years to get the open licence. Does anybody know the fine for riding a motorbike with only a Singapore car licence

I don't know the official answer, but I'll take a guess that it'll be a whopping fine, a short jail sentence (because, for example, riding without insurance), and probably loss of your car licence too. You'll be caught fairly quickly, because without a licence you can't get insurance ... without insurance you can't get a tax disc ... without a tax disc you'll be pulled over real quick.
Other than that ... fantastic idea (not).

Hey Yetenji,

:wink: The guy at the bike shop agrees with you re. the posible penality. If you think that riding a bike without the correct licence will attract a whopping fine and a short time in the big house, I wonder why the well known CEO just got a $4,000 fine for drink driving and crashing his Porche into 2 cars, one being the cops car? Funny place this !

Hi, good points. Justice isn't always as 'blind' as its supposed to be! :roll:
