Same thing happened to me yesterday. Passed my BTT, provided my full UK licence showing class of bike and dates of endorsement. Provided proof of ownership and insurance for a 600cc bike over 4 years but they still rejected conversion to a class 2 licence on the basis that I didn't have a document showing what size of bike I took my test on. Called the Driver & Vehicle Licencing Agency in the UK and they didn't seem to know what document could be provided to prove size of bike.blibble wrote:Hello
Yup - denied a class 2 because I cannot show documentary evidence of training on large capacity bike. I argued my UK test and over 30 years experience should count but dealing with box ticking procedure following clerks is an exercise in futility. I tried at two stations. Same result. I showed my current insurance documents to show my large capacity bike but no - must see documentary proof of training... Yes but... Must show documentary proof of training...
2 hours of queuing at each place too...
Anyway I need to find out who to write to in order to deal with someone more senior and who an understand my situation.
Singapore TP don't take away your original licence when you convert. That's how it was ten plus years ago.. not likely it changed of late ..Popinjay wrote:This is all quite worrying. I passed my BTT on Tuesday but did not have time to apply for conversion then. I don't want to ride here but I've got a bike back in the UK and often rent bikes when I visit US, so will I end up with no licence for that? I had to give my UK licence in for a Swiss one as I lived there before here, I think the Swiss one I have is only valid for a year after leaving Switzerland. Do they take your foreign licence away at time of conversion here? Anyone had success converting a Swiss licence with class 2? It seems like the capacity of the bike tested on is the key thing needed - anyone had any success getting that from DVLA?

finally I've got both license 2B/3 today and they didn't take your foreign license. It will take a month to get real license though, they will send via mail to your placePopinjay wrote:Ok, if they don't take the Swiss licence when I convert that is encouraging as the Swiss licence does not expire, at least I can rent bikes in other countries with it. I'm trying to register my bike that's in the UK, then getting insurance while living in Singapore and holding a Swiss licence may be a challenge too far...perhaps time to sell it if I can sort the registration out which is proving difficult!
Italian and powerful bike = terrible riding ? Maybe that's why TP was extra careful with you ....luca9277 wrote: I got my class 2 license 2 days after I sold my class 2 bike.
