practical motorbike instruction

Post by revfeim » Mon, 17 Dec 2007 11:19 am

Hi, as I am here in Singapore as a contractor but travel extensively for my work, I get 30 days social pass entry each time I arrive in the country.

I would like to learn to ride a motorbike for the various weekends I am in town. Apparently without a visa, I cannot apply for the formal courses available.

Can someone provide me with private tuition? I am happy to pay an hourly rate in cash to know the basics as I am an exceptional car driver and have ridden motorcross bikes on a farm before.

hmm, that would be illegal i guess, and you would never get any road experience, and cant take the test either without a visa. I would learn elsewhere as the Singapore system can take some time. In UK you can do a direct access course and ride any bike in about 3-4 days if you have a car license before 2000. Singapore that would take at least 2 years..

bike or car?

i got my bike license in less than 9months... and that too, due to my own laziness...

car license in less than a year... and had to rebook my test because i had to miss the first date due to travelling for work!! :???:

but then again, that was a couple of years back... :roll: :P

I must say, i agree with the min 1 year on 2B, but to then restrict people again on 2A is a bit over the top...
