I think the issue is expats who go back home and take a BIG bike test, then expect to come to Singapore and convert are the ones who are disappointed.

In Singapore you must go through three tests for 2B (<200cc), 2A (<400cc) and 2 (any bike). You are looking for a licence to ride a 2B bike...take test in UK, ride here for 12 months and happy they give you 2B licence and if by some miracle you get a Class 2 then all the better.

Once you have converted to Class 2B, you still have to take 2A and 2 licences here if you want to ride bigger bikes.

What is much more relaxed process than the 2B class course and the tests. The only problem you have to wait for one year before enrolling to the next level course so probably it would take you ~1.5y to get full 2 class licence.
