😂 still must pay cash first lah...the claim happens when the license is obtained. BUT must be NTUC member before starting the course.  That's why I'm like... looking here and there. 
 

will find out more about lesson booking as I go along but really there are like 3 slots available for the orientation... 😑 I think I can apply for NTUC member while I wait 😂

Oh! So in the end u went with BBDC?
My hb and I just enrolled with CDC! 
 

Now i’m suddenly trying to see if I can get the UTAP funding from NTUC 😂 so don’t wanna book anything yet. Anyway, the CDC booking quite bad. For the Circuit orientation programme only have dates for the coming 1 week. Cannot book further in advance?!? 
 

Let’s see how this thing goes… I read that it can take up to 27 lessons to get a 2B license. 

Hi, yes, booked with BBDC. The reason was I can have a "stop over" if I learn there on the weekends. CDC while much closer to home... the traffic there is challenging... :D

Yay~ another rider to be.. do update ur progress.. faster go book ur lessons n start ur riding :D 

Im still taking my lessons.. haha.. could have passed today but i did stupid things so have to repeat.. 🌚

No, nothing you do is "stupid" when you are learning. These controlled environments make one more skilled when using it in real life scenarios... I'm sure you will do well! Guide us newbie learners please! 

I was on the way home from work when I saw a P-plater with armor jacket and full face helmet. Admirable and I'm already shopping for the jacket.. 

I could tell this rider was pretty new... he was shifting his left foot pretty hard on the gears.. which is indicative of new riders.. not so smooth I guess*.

*am a newbie so my observations could be flawed..

Yeah I checked with CDC and UTAP website. It's one of the listed courses. 😊 now it's just a matter of getting the membership. Called ntuc yesterday, person said if I apply now, I'll only be a member in July. 😂 but seeing how long it takes to get an appropriate time slot, july seems feasible.

Don't worry too much as am sure you will pass soon and get your 2B!

On learning; while fresh, will take your pointers on the lessons.... it's a wealth of current information. :)

I'm just getting an armor mesh jacket that I can use for a while... will see what sort of jackets they have :D

That's the part lor... that's why I haven't start 😂 but I read it after I paid the enrollment. 

i emailed them... let's see when the reply will happen. 
 

i did call them after I enrolled and the person said if I apply in June, my membership will only start in July. So I reckon wait a few days for the reply makes no diff since the membership will start in July regardless. 😂

Ok, will take that advice of using t-shirt with arm-sleeves. I agree with passing then getting more gear. Right now, with COE prices, I think it is best to wait until a recession hits.

Ya 10k sia. Crazy. Dun think the recession will hit anytime soon. But u can consider getting a 2nd hand bike for a start since u may still lack in riding experience even after u pass 2B..

Ok so i just checked with the live agent.. apparently they can backdate your membership so that it starts before your course date. But its only worth it if u're already a ntuc member unless u're 40 and above. 

As UTAP Funding is 50% of the unfunded course fee capped at $250 a year. If you are above 40 years old it will be 50% of the unfunded course fee capped at $500 till 31 December 2022.

So for my case, i signed up 2B last dec. I need to pay from dec 2021 - nov 2022 which would be 117. So i can only claim 250 for this year and probably some amount in dec 2021.. savings is probably like 150 for mi.. sounds abit mafan to go thru the hassle cos i still have to go down to one marina boulevard ntuc center specially to make payment..

Wow! Thanks for checking 😊 I'll just apply now and don't need to start so soon, since no time slot also 😑

And we're both >40 😂 that's why it's worth it.

Wah lao.. really damn worth it for both u and ur husb. 500 leh.. i only turning 40 in few more years.. still far from it.. but good that u both are learning together.. can exchange tips etc.. but it is gonna be hard to book the same lessons if u 2 wanna go together thou.. need to really camp on their app de. Actually i think u can check with them see whether ur membership date can start this month or not then u can enrol and start booking for lessons already. Just contact the live chat for assistance

I don't think I will buy a bike so soon.. I want to see how I can really handle the vehicle or not.. I mean, riding is really being able to survive the roads...
(Don't laugh but I've a penchant for scooters) Though I like bikes...

*sorry for late reply as work was really busy and ironically, on a Friday, where most are out. I'm just chilling behind my screen... LOL

Definitely street bikes (aka fighter) naked bikes for roads... so MT-15 as a strong contender...  Scooter is great when wearing office wear.... :D
