Thanks guys, appreciate the support :) Going to book a road revision before going lesson 6 cause the instructor told me not to try my luck and just practice first. By the way how do you book road revision? the ssdc system keep saying i have to book RC first but i already booked one RC for this week??

 

On a side note, i just had a dream about riding on the expressway and crashing into the back of a van doing E brake:faint:

 

Happy new year guys

 

EDIT: just found out you have to finish lesson6 before unlocking road revision, which is weird because they gave me an option to book road revision after lesson 5 and you would think you should do road revision before going for lesson 6 which is more or less a road test

 

Whoa. Seems like u r moving forward quite fast. Congrats on ur progress! Think for me cuz i am working and even on Saturdays it is rather hard for me to find slots to book. Just took my 1st lesson 5 today and i failed at safety checks. Need to come back again. Haiz.

Just came back from my prac 6 today, few hours before it was super nervous until can feel my heart beating, but actually on the day of the lesson its easier than i thought, was confident doing all the turns and lane changing, i was first rider so have to make sure i get the test route correct as no instructor infront to guide me but i managed to complete it anyway.(i looked at google maps to memorise haha)

 

instructor said my safety checks were all ok, but my form up at right turn was pretty bad, had no pocket to guide me and instructor was at the back watching. My right turning at the stop line junction need to be more confident to go even if we see cars in the distance granted the cars are moving slow. oh and forming up when coming back is really difficult for third and fourth rider who has very tight turning radius and have to stop nicely at the tip of the arrow, not sure how much they will penalise us if we dont form up correctly when coming back.

 

Unfortunately have to repeat, but im quite confident now :)

 

When coming back to park our bikes got one guy rear ended me quite hard cause he didnt notice that i stopped, the worst part is my balls was squished by my body weight being thrown forward, still having stomach pains from that haha

Yes Probably taking it in february, unless i can complete prac 7 by 17 jan. Is there a point in getting class2 bikes in singapore, because from what i know 1st gear for such high powered bikes breaks the maximum speed limit in singapore already haha

2B bikes will be a little under powered for day to day riding. Have heard from many seniors that 2A is just the right spot. Individual preferences of course.

Don't be. just think of that you are not ready for the real road yet. if you only gotten 10 demerit points, it means you did it minus the bike stalled at the beginning. I rather you fail in your lessons than you fail in your TP because of your bike stalled.

Yes the instructor today told me why they failed me for bike stalling, anyway i passed on my third try, 14 demerit points, all of them was from the road riding...say i ride too slow, inner circuit i dont have any demerits but i think is cause they never see me make mistakes, TP test confirm got eyes all around...

True TP test more focus on u. but be more confident in yourself! sometimes ride too slow is better than you ride fast and exceed speed limit and gotten immediate failure.

Good luck for your TP and see you on the road soon. Remember to go for revision too!

Thanks, i also think that its better to get some demerit points instead of overshoot the right turn and get immediate failure for not following route, also at the stop line junction better to get 2 demerit points for delay in moving off instead off misjudging the speed of car and causing them to brake when you right turn(immediate failure)

Hi guys

 

I enrolled to SSDC on 24 June 2018 and progress has been rather slow as i'm quite a clumsy rider & slow learner....

 

As the validity period is only for 1 year, what will happen when it expires and I still not at that stage to get TP test yet?

 

Do i start all over again from Lesson 1 ? or I can renew and continue from where I am?

 

Thanks for any reply.

What you need is just more practice and time. Just renew your sch enrolment, PDL etc.

You will get there just a matter of time. Good luck

Spyder 69, if im not wrong u should be able to continue from where you stopped. I dont think they allow you to repeat the lesson after clearing that particular lesson. For example if you have cleared Lesson 4 the last round, just go to lesson 5. If you have not cleared lesson 4, then you must go back to lesson 4.

 

Think its normal for ppl to span over a year plus or 2 yrs to learn bike. Sometimes we have other commitments. Or difficult to get the slots you want. And tips if you have gone to the stage of clearing Lesson 3b onwards, go and practise circuit revision and u can in fact book as many slots as you want. Same goes to road revision (you can only book this after clearing Lesson 6).

thank you all for your info and encouragement....

 

I'm now stuck at L4, just failed (due 48 pts ) again (due forgot to wait instruction to proceed on figure 8, thus no timing & 28 pts) & again ( fell off plank & 24 pts) & again (fell of plank & 40 pts)....

 

quite disheartening, sigh...
