CDC Circuit Revision for Class 2b Motorbike School is the cheapest lesson to brush up your techniques for all of the 6 courses but it cannot be cancelled. It is also the easiest to book as it is mostly available for almost all the session. To add on, it is only available after you have passed CDC Practical Lesson 4. The instructor will normally give a briefing on the test route and the blindspot area in the circuit before you start. However, it is also possible that the instructor will let those who have taken circuit revision before to skip the briefing and go straight into the circuit to practice.
The best timeslot to book CDC Circuit Revision for Class 2b Motorbike School is to book it in the same session as lesson 5 and 8. Both lesson 5 and 8 are mock test. When learners from these 2 lessons will complete their mock test which usually take around 1 hour, they will return their bike and wait for their result to be collated by the instructors. As a result, the circuit will usually be less crowded, giving those on CDC Circuit Revision for Class 2b Motorbike School more chance to practice on their course without much queuing. The other best timeslot is during the off peak hour from 10am – 6pm timeslot as there are less learner in the circuit.
The worst timeslot is the last session (Tuesday last session) in the night before weekly traffic police test on Wednesday morning. As the instructor have to prepare the bikes for those who are taking the traffic police test, most of the bike has to be returned back to the bike nursery by 10am. Thus, most of the lessons will end a bit earlier on that session. Your circuit revision duration will also shorten slightly.
Normally, those who are on circuit revision will start off by going thru the test route first. However, this usually cause a buildup of bike queue trying to turn right. My suggestion is not to follow them. Instead, you should turn left to head straight to figure of 8. If you do so, you can immediately start practicing and skip the queue. It is much faster to turn left to head to figure of 8 than to turn right to plank course.
Although it is important to practice all the 6 courses in the circuit, it is also important to practice your riding skills (like moving off, stopping and lane changing) during circuit revision. Most of the instructors will also advise going thru the test route 3 rounds at least so you know how to react and what to expect in the test route. Usually, the problem comes from the learner cars.
Lastly, be sure to practice on the initial part of starting off from the bike nursery whereby you stop behind the line. Check back right slightly longer to check for any vehicles turning left from the figure of 8 and then blindspot left. When clear, throttle up and then change to gear two. Signal right and then check mirror. When you are reaching the third dotted line, then proceed to change lane to the right lane. Do make sure that you are moving in diagonal manner when changing lane. Else, it will be considered as abrupt lane change. If you did not practice this part well, you will end up with lot of demerits point (wobbling, poor acceleration and abrupt lane change) even before you start any of the courses.

Pls do try to complete all your theory lessons and tests as soon as possible to prevent any bottlenecking. Both theory and practical lesson can be cleared at the same time. Some learners progress were impeded as they are unable to book their next practical lesson due to not clearing their theory lessons and tests fast enough.

In the real world, we ride our own bikes.
We get more and more used to it.
In sg bike schools, you are given different bikes that behave differently each time eg. Clutch is too tight or biting point too close to the point where the clutch is fully clutched-in. The clutch is adjustable but the school maintenance seems like a big disappointment.
These problems are creating unnecessary problems for learners and they may fail due to it but the school will get more revenue as the learner has to wait long time for test retake.
Maybe it’s just a coincidence as I do not believe the school plans it this way.
In real life, people dun really follow the blind checks and strict discipline and they are usually not penalised . So we are learning things that we won’t be put into practice fully in real life but the test is so strict that many fail and have to suffer the torture and heart shattering experience.
To be fair, every learner face the same problems. Thus, you should try to adapt to the bike clutch. Else, you can take more circuit revision and if you spotted a bike which you do not like, please do take note of that bike and do not use that bike in future.
The test is strict for a purpose. If the test is hard to pass, then all rider will cherish their license after getting it. This act as a deterence for traffic offense, making the road safer for all road user. This is especially important to biker as we are the most vulnerable party in any accidents.
Blind spot check are really important because it will save your life. Do not underestimate the importance of checking blind spot. The road outside are not as forgiving as in the circuit.
Yes , learner cars seem to pose a lot of problems and delays for bike learner’s. For instance, the instructor of car learners will even stop in front of the zebra crossing with hazard lights on and wait there long time. This area has zig zag lines which disallow lane change.
They seem to take priority over bike learners . The car learners also tend to love at snail pace creating jams. It’s as if bike learners are second class citizens.
It’s been a perenial problem.
but the car are there also to help you with your road judgement. Actually, you actually make use of the slow moving car to learn low speed control. By following the slow moving car behind, you will learn how to clutch control and balance under low speed. This will help you immensely on plank. That is how i can pass the plank 99% of the time.
What you say is not false but I will add that the car learners jamming the circuit helps to give riders less time to practise which means they have to book extra revisions and this is not bad for business. $$$
My advice is, if doing revisions , change to the next lane before the zig zag so that you won’t be caught jammed by the stupid cars with learners and instructors in it. They know they are jamming bike learners but seems like they regard it their rights. Since they are shit, and no demerit points during revision and we treasure our money spent on this course, heck it! Just lane change but ensure you do it safely and best before the zig zag.
Why let stupid practice affect us? We dun owe them a living and clearly they do not feel they owe us a living! Why entertain stupidity and nonsense? Just dun do this during test.
Revise and revise no use because no instructor to help you during revision to tell you what is wrong you doing.
