This is not quite true. It will depend upon your years of experience on large bikes and your age. I am aware of two recent foreign conversions. In the first, a lengthy time of driving a bike and some certificates and pics did the trick. In the second, as noted in earlier posts, the individual bought a large bike here, rode it for 11 months, then took his written test. When applying for license, they checked '2b', and he said, 'Hey, you mean I need to sell my 1100 after almost a year?'. All the rest of the boxes got checked. If you have ridden for almost a year in Singapore it is kind of hard to say you don't have the road experience.zjules wrote:You can now only convert to a 2B licence, so max 200cc. They used to be flexible on this if you could prove experience with a bigger bike, but no longer. You have to do the practical training and test after 1 year to get a 2A, then the same again a year later for the 2... booo
The whole point of the law is to stop inexperienced youngsters from coming in and buying a Hayabusa only to promptly crash it. If you have experience (more than just a little bit), age, and/or a big bike here, you should be OK. If you are 'youthful' it may not work.
It also requires not taking 'no' for an answer at the license booth. I think the one at Bukit Batok driving centre is the best for motorcycle conversions.
