5 day work week... You say leh? :cheeky:

 

Is there anyone who is currently learning class 2a at ssdc that can update on the lesson interval? Like once you enroll, when can you book your first theory lesson and practical lesson one,two and three. After you pass your lesson 3 evaluation, which date is your TP test.

 

I stay at pasir ris which driving centre would you recommend to pass 2a in shortest duration.

 

Thanks in advance

This below is for ssdc format. Not sure about other schools,

 

Theory is own time own target, and anyway one lesson only... You can start practical together with theory. Just make sure you complete it before passing the practical assessment.

Practical is only 2 classes. 1 & 2. Pract 3 is assessment.

 

So basically prac 1 is to learn, pract 2 is for you memorise the route. After that you can do circuit revision until u are comfortable with the bike. Pass prac 3 and book tp.

Latest tp dates can be found online... Usually is 4-8 weeks. Depending on the crowd during that time.... When i got my 2A i waited for 3 weeks only... Quite fortunate.

How long is the waiting time in between each lesson? like after you pass or fail lesson when is the next lesson?

Just completed 2A at SSDC. I started in Feb this year. Once enrolled, you can start booking prac 1. Note that you can only book 1 practical lesson at a time.

 

I only do night lessons as I'm working so for prac 1 and 2 (night which is the either 610 or 820pm) usually need to wait about 2 weeks+ for the next availability.

 

Prac 3 has much more slots as its the evaluation and shared lesson with the 2B riders. Usually can book the next one in a few days if you have to repeat.

 

For theory, just look at the timetable from SSDC's website and turn up for class, no need to book.

 

Once prac 3 and theory completed, you can book the TP test which is about 2-2.5 weeks later.

 

A tip to speed up prac 1 and 2 is to cancel your booking (but must be 3 days before to be able to cancel) then check for any slots with closer dates. If nothing, rebook your original slot. By doing this, I managed to cut down the waiting time of prac 1 and 2 to about 1-1.5 weeks.

 

I also stay in Pasir Ris and the reason why I go to SSDC is that when I took my 2B, my office used to be close to woodlands. Now its further but I'm used to SSDC.

 

Good things about SSDC is that there are 3 levels of circuits so usually the instructor will bring you to one that is not occupied and you can use it for the whole lesson, no need to share/que so can get more practice. Another good thing is that the TP test circuit is sheltered to don't have to worry about skidding in the figure 8 or slalom if it rains during the test.

 

Bad thing is that there will class 4 and 5 vehicles (lorries, cranes) driving around the circuit during your test so have to be more careful. Someone in my 2A test batch failed because he didn't watch out for lorry parking which takes up both lanes.

If i never take night lesson, as i will be available for the whole day so i can take either morning, afternoon or night lesson.

 

What is the lesson interval? Like if you pass lesson one when is your lesson 2?

 

And you said i can make multiple booking for lesson one? So is it like you book 2 lesson for lesson one in case you fail your first attempt so your next lesson will be 3-4 days later.

 

A little information about me.

Im getting enlist in 25 july and i passed my class 2b licence at 15 june 2016. So i planning to enroll for class 2A at ssdc and hope to get class 2A before i enlist. Is it possible to complete before 25july?

You can only book 1 prac lesson at a time so once you enrol, you will only be able to book prac 1. Availability (in Feb) was around 2 weeks later then you have slot. This means that if you enrol in SSDC 2A on 15 june, most likely prac 1 lesson will be available to book around 28 June. If you pass, then can book prac 2 which is also around 2 weeks later. If you pass prac 2 then you should be able to book prac 3 which is around a few days later. Pass prac 3 then TP test should be around 2-2.5 weeks later.

 

I think if you want to complete by 25 July, probably have to go BBDC. I saw somewhere that someone completed it in 3 weeks earlier this year, meaning from enroll date until pass TP test date took 3 weeks in total at BBDC.

  • 2 weeks later...
thinking of switching school from ssdc to bbdc , are the instructor in bb better ?

 

How come venom_666?? What happened in SSDC? If I am not wrong now SSDC test date is faster..

BBDC if you are taking class 2a/2, instructors are more "friend" with you. But of course if you ride like a new class 2b rider and keep doing many mistakes, they will still fail you and ask you back for more lessons.

Can anyone who is still learning or recently passed their class 2A around march-april update on lesson interval at SSDC? for example, if you fail your first attempt on lesson one when is your next attempt. If you pas your first attempt when is your second lesson date.

 

Thanks

      Saw this post on Facebook recently, thought it would be good to share with all if you have a current TP test date coming up.
      Bro Wee Boon was suppose to have his TP test today but was turned away by the safe distancing officer and denied entry into CDC as his Trace Together app showed that he possible had exposure to a case confirmed to be COVID positive.
      If you have such interactions, best to check ahead of time with the driving centre to make sure whether you can enter the premises at all, or have to change date or get a refund.
      From Wee Boon's post:
      Hi guys, just wanna get some thoughts on CDC enforcing checking of trace together app for possible exposure upon entering. 
      I am suppose to be doing my TP this morning, but I was denied entry due to having possible exposure with the case at Vivo city. I was able to enter the compound the day before to do my circuit revision and road revision and only got to enter after explaining that I was only in the same mall and have not enter the same shop as the case.
      According to Student affairs officer NEO that was on duty this morning at CDC, "He doesn't care if I was able to enter yesterday as long as he is here today, he will not be letting me in." That was the only explaination given to me. I am a paying student and am I receiving such attitude.
      I have also tried contacting CDC's customer service and they have yet came up with a SOP to solve/rebook lesson for students that has been denied entry. Till now I have yet to get a new TP test date.
      I call MOH, they mention to me that because CDC is a private property they have the rights to deny me entry. But MOH point of view is if they nvr contact me to serve SHN, I would have been fine and shouldn't have been denied entry.
      Waited a month for TP just to get denied 😭

      Article reproduced from The Straits Times
      Learner motorcyclists and drivers could in a few years' time be assessed for a road licence without the presence of a human tester, if a trial here proceeds smoothly.
      The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has called a tender for a trial of a fully automated circuit that will use technology to test motorcycle riders.
      The Intelligent Driving Circuit (IDC) will eventually replace the current testing method, which involves a human assessor, for both car drivers and motorcyclists.

      According to the tender documents on government procurement portal GeBiz, the trial is to be conducted on selected Class 2, 2A and 2B motorcycles, which are to be fitted with analytical equipment such as sensors and cameras.
      The tenderer is expected to supply two motorcycle units for each class and set up automated testing systems at the motorcycle course stations within the test circuit at the Singapore Safety Driving Centre (SSDC) in Woodlands Industrial Park.
      The tender documents set out the riding errors that the automated testing system must be able to detect at the emergency stop station in a proof-of-concept test.
      These include failing to attain a minimum speed of 30kmh for Class 2B motorcycles and 40kmh for Class 2 and 2A motorcycles before executing the emergency stop, failing to look straight ahead and hold the handlebar firmly with both hands, and failing to grip the fuel tank with both knees.
      The system must also be able to detect if a rider puts his feet down before bringing the motorcycle to a complete stop, if he supports the motorcycle with his right foot instead of his left after stopping, or if he stops in a staggering manner.

      Applying insufficient braking force, applying the clutch before braking, applying the brakes early, failing to close the throttle to make use of the engine brake and failing to apply the front and rear brakes together are also among the listed errors.
      Other errors that will cause a rider to fail the test immediately include taking more than the required distances to stop the motorcycle on a wet surface, falling off the motorcycle and causing the motorcycle to lean over by more than 45 degrees.
      The tenderer must show that the system can achieve at least 80 per cent accuracy in detecting and highlighting these errors before the design is considered for further evaluation.
      The system must be able to achieve 100 per cent accuracy in detecting errors before it is eventually implemented in full.
      It will also be required to show how demerit points are awarded and why, as well as calculate the total demerit points awarded at the end of the test to determine whether the testee had met the minimum requirements before proceeding to the next test.
      The trial could take up to a year and a half, according to the tender documents. The tenderer will be required to provide warranty and maintenance of the system for up to 18 months after installation.
      When the IDC was first announced by Home Affairs and Law Minister K. Shanmugam in 2017, the minister said the trial would take place in 2021 and that the plan was to achieve full implementation by 2023.
      He said then that using technology to conduct driving lessons and tests will enhance the effectiveness of lessons, increase productivity and allow lessons to be taken outside of the current operating hours to better suit learners' schedules.
      The MHA did not respond to queries on the trial. A training manager at SSDC declined to comment when approached.

      Hi guys, I made a video on my experience in getting my class 2b license at SSDC and I thought I would share it to give some expectations and tips for the new students. There are timestamps in the video description to save time. Hope it helps. Feel free to ask me questions below 😀
