Class 2B Learners' Thread


Recommended Posts

I passed my 8.01 @ BBDC earlier this week. Taking my RTT on Monday. Will be booking my TP test after RTT... Sigh, the wait is killing me. I was hoping to complete everything before the year end. But it seem improbable now. Possibly early next year.

 

Right now, all I can do is dream of what bike to buy. Hahah...

lililianan, where are you taking your lessons? I see quite a good number of female motorcycle learners at BBDC. I've always admired female bikers - especially those with a petite frame handling a largish bike. There is this "Hey you! Don't mess with me! I'm in total control here!" aura that these female bikers seem to exude.

Take heart! Just a few more tries!! Every lesson is 1 step closer to your 2B license. If pass - next lesson lor. If have to repeat, think of it as up XP. Hahaha. When XP high enough, go fight Big Boss (TP practical test).

Haha love your analogy! Yeah. Not disheartened. Going to make sure I really can do every lesson properly and not just by luck.

One Tip to share on plank.

1) Look Far (dont look at the wheel, find a spot ahead to look, for Ubi, there is a tree right in front, focus on that)

2) Lock your arms!!

3) The clutch and foot pedal tip from the instructor actually works so use it. (The key is knowing the biting point of the bike you are on)

4) Count your timing, dont just chiong through(still fail)

Nice thread! I just started my 2B learning @ CDC, going for L2 next. L1 has been smooth, but dang the intervals between lessons are so long! I have to wait... 3 weeks between L1 and L2.

 

For those who don't mind doing some extra reading, check out Motorcycle Roadcraft: The Police Rider's Handbook from the library. Lots of helpful tips there on riding. Experienced riders might like to give it a once-through too.

Hihi! I started 2B around that time too. Am at lesson 6 already (chiong'ed in November by taking leave). Problem is L6 is night class and when I passed L5, I had to wait almost a month for the next lesson..stalking the system only helped me get lessons earlier by a week. Angry! :angry:

2B is the hardest to pass among the three bike classes, so, always go for circuit and road revision to practice, i learned it the hard way, had to take twice because i failed on the first attempt, mostly on the road. only went for one road revision before the test, felt pretty confident that i could do it, but was wrong and paid the ultimate price of failure. my circuit was perfect, but the road alone costs me lots of demerit points. i focused too much on circuit and was complacent with the road part of the test.

Hi Bros, my first post here.

 

I want to start 2B soon, probably in March or April after I save up money.

 

I want to ask you all how Long it takes to complete 2B? Without chionging for lesson Everyday (I have a Friend who did that) maybe go for lessons on weeks ends or 3 times a week.

 

And the total cost for 2B without any retries?

 

I should be going to BBDC because it's nearer to my house (west side)

My chiongster Friend said bbdc is better because it Teaches you more than CDC, what you all think about this?

I passed my 2B recently and did it with BBDC too. it took me about 6 months with a lesson a week and not too many repeats. but I didn't need to take BTT so i don't know what's the waiting time on that now. i passed my TP on my 2nd attempt and total dmg was slightly over $1k. my schedule is flexible and i go for the off peak sessions whenever I can. I HEARD CDC waiting times for a session sux coz way too many learners (true?). no need to chiong and be anxious about getting that license. do it leisurely and get the technicals right, for safety sake. enjoy the learning experience. u are going to spend at least 4 months and almost $1k on it afterall.

 

All the best

When I decided to do my 2B last year, I enquired all 3 centres on what their estimated duration for completion would be... BBDC gave me the "fastest" estimate - about 4 months, considering that I didn't have to wait / take my BTT (I have a class 3). So I signed up with them. 3 months and 4 days later, I got my 2B license. The longest wait for me was the RTT. Waited 2 months for it. TP test date was about 1 month wait for me - totalling about 3 months.

6 months should be safe.

 

BTT itself is a few weeks' waiting time.

The final test is 1 - 2 months waiting as well.

 

I cleared all the lessons with a single try and easily finished in 6 months.

 

You're probably more limited by waiting time for tests (which should be the same for all schools) than the school schedules themselves.

 

Don't pay too much attention to their estimates

If u practise outside on your own, and if get caught by tp, both u and the person who lend u the bike may get their license revoke. And u may be ban from getting ur license for a few yrs. Better to spend tat bit of money and learn at the driving centre

All three centres publish their currently available test dates on their websites. I only found this out after signing up with BBDC. Check them out before you decide, so that you can estimate yourself how long it'll take. You need to pass your BTT and RTT before being able to book TP test. Practical lessons can start after attending BTT and RTT lessons (not test) - you don't have to wait for passing.

 

I wouldn't practice on your bro's bike if I were you. It's illegal and dangerous. Once you pass a certain stage, you can sign up for self practice sessions. It's almost "free and easy" on your own practice in the circuit. IIRC, self practice is less than $15 per 100min session in BBDC. Better to practice in the circuit (where your test would be conducted) than in carparks (illegal).

Ok thanks bros, maybe I can try practising on my brother's bike in the carpark if he allow :lol: so I can pass the practicals easier

 

If you get caught it would be tricky..

 

Anyway it probably wouldn't help you THAT much since a lot of passing the test is getting used to the school bike, as well as going through the circuit stations. Both of which you won't be able to do in your carpark, on your brother's bike.

I spent $962.04, all peak hour lessons. Only had to repeat 2 practicals (2.01 and 5.01). Took 3 SP, 1 RR and 1 RC.

 

I went two lessons per week. My duration was around 3 months and 21 days, enrolled 14 Jul 15, ended 3 Nov 15.

 

The nearest TP was 1.5 months away (which I took), so I took evenly spread out classes - 3 SP, 1 RR and 1 RC - while waiting. Passed first attempt.

Thanks for the Info bro!

 

3 months seems to be quite fast, usually is 5-6 months.

 

 

Some questions; what is SP, RR and RC??
