Thanks folks but.....

Thanks for the info. The reason for me wanting to rent a motorbike is because, I work offshore but live in Singapore. I'm not a PR or do I have an employment pass, because I'm alway's gone. when my offshore jobs are done, I just come back into the country as a tourist. 3-6 weeks and I'm off again. I just want a motorcycle to get around on and for recreational riding. Giving this situation I think renting is the best way to go for me. I just can't find anyone who rent's bikes. Can I buy a 2nd hand bike as a tourist. Will I be able to register the bike and get insurance. I also thought about buying a bike elsewhere than bringing it into the country. I just need some advice from someone who knows whats up, cause the traffic police and the other government services aren't much help. I know I can rent a car but I want a motorcycle.

Please help

I believe you don't need a motorcycle license to ride in Singapore as long as your Native Country License is Motorcycle qualified. The reason below.

As you work offshore and only reside in Singapore as a tourist you start fresh each time you come into the country just like any tourist. I know, I did that for eleven years while I was working offshore on the rigs on a 2 & 1 schedule (2 months offshore & 4 weeks back in Singapore. Technically you have a year from the time you enter Singapore on any type of visa other than tourist to convert to a Singapore License.

Agreed 100%. But don't think that would be the case for a tourist do you? That's provided you could find a motorcycle rental place to begin with. I suspect that's not the case however. You might need an International Motorcycle License if they give such a thing when traveling as a tourist and not on a Employment Pass or Work Permit.

I'm sure your right.

I'm sure your right. I know two guys from my company who purchased motorcycles with their native contries DL. They had employment pass'. I also have rented cars and drove on my U.S. DL, so I know my DL is valid. The two guy's were told that they have 1 yr to transfer their DL to a Singapore DL. But in my case I'll never hit the 1 yr mark. ](*,) So technically I don't have to change anything right? My concern is finding a place in Singapore that rent's bikes to ride while I'm home. I wonder if I can buy a 2nd hand bike on a tourist visa??? I would't think so. What if I purchased a bike outside singapore, like Thailand and ship or rode it in?? Would I be able to register the bike. Can I ride in Singapore on the registration from which I purchased the bike??? The problem is Singapore websites are sketchy and really don't give good info, and getting info from some of the people here is impossible. They never seem to understand the question's you have :???: . It's better for me to ask people like you.

Thank's saif.....
