    Hello, I found instructors there are generally more strict to 2b learners (in fact all three 3schools) but I guess they want you to build up your solid riding foundation. A quick check at bbdc website show TP 2b waiting time is about 1 month. So probably you can get your licence by 2 months to 3 months if you are fast learner and able to go lesson everyday.
    Good luck and enjoy your lessons.

    Thanks man yeah rlly quite important to have solid foundation as I'm planning to use the bike to go to and fro work, and plus i can't actually go lessons everyday as I'm working so the process gonna be quite tough. Actually my btl i have to take double session on the same day on my off and sadly for my rtl they don't have slots on my offdays so end up have to go take lesson thn go work afterwards super tiring...and isit the practical lesson slots only can see after you get pdl cause i logged in to check for slot got something popped up saying there is no more slots available and I'll have to select another schedule but i selected all days and all months up till mar 2019 not funny if dun have any slots till then man..

    I suggest you to call BBDC up to check with them on the lesson thing. I encountered the same during my 2a time. Back then can enroll online then I check no lessons at all. Call you BBDC, gave them my ic number and next moment I can see the lessons.
    From BBDC website it appears that you can attend circuit lessons without PDL and it is needed only when you are going to road lesson.
    No choice on the theory, I myself spent like 3 or 4 days just to attend theory lessons...But for your case you can do theory lessons finish then after that go for your practical lesson provided there is slots.

    Oh i see...hopefully there are slots, also now i heard got more lessons than last time alr got extra lesson such as defensive riding maybe because of the rise in accident bah, how was practical lesson for you? Like which course is harder to pass. Also I'm pretty light for my height so i think will be harder to control the bike when learning haha rlly need to brush up my skills before gg on the road rlly dw any accidents man

    Don't worry about those extra lessons. I took about 6 times to pass fig 8 lessons. lol But overall all the skills you just need more practice to brush up!
    Good luck for your lessons and look forward to your experience sharing.

    Thanks i just clear my btl 1.01 and 1.02 thn rtl lessons are just round this week so will prolly start practical lessons in june can't wait! Haha cause theory is quite boring the instructor that i had keep on saying about his own personal experience and didn't teach much theory stuff so probably must self help myself on practice and evaluation to get to know the questions...really looking forward to practical..i bet its definitely not as boring boring as theory haha

    CDC has 7 theory lessons (4 + 3) and 8 practical lessons. This excludes BTT, RTT, TP, etc

    IIRC BBDC has "8" lessons for 2B as well but there was 1.01, 1.02, 1.03 etc so the total was more. Generally BBDC has the shortest waiting times for lessons and for TP so it's easy to book even the popular lesson slots.
    I feel that the instructors at bbdc are quite fair and fail people only if they really cmi. Of course will have some that black face fail whole class lol. But generally the bbdc guys are all quite friendly la

    Practice, practice, and practice more! So much so that it becomes muscle memory. Also remember to check do your safety checks + blind spots, and lastly look confident. That's all there is to it!
