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.
