At Metro Driving Academy, the bike we are using is,

B2 – Honda EX5

1. Obviously B License have more advantage because of the unlimited CC limit as for B2 you only can ride a bike that is below 250 CC
2. If you thinking you want to take B2 License first and will be converting your license to ‘B’ license in the future, i recommend you to straight away take the ‘B’ License.
3.  ‘B’ motorcycle you will be handling two things which is, hand clutch and gear, while ‘B2’ motorcycle you will be only handling with gear. 
4. ‘B’ motorcycle will be a lot bigger and heavier than ‘B2’ motorcycle.


1. If you are a first timer or never ride a motorcycle before and scared to take ‘B’ license for the first time, it is ok. Don’t worry or scared, our teacher will teach you using ‘B2′ motorcycle first too make you comfortable with our tracks and make yourself comfortable by riding a small motorcycle before you  ride ‘B’ motorcycle.
2. You don’t have to bring your own motorcycle. We will be providing the motorcycle for you. 



1. I have no license, I want to get a motorcycle license.
Step 1 :- Go and register at the driving school.
Step 2 :- Go through the process of obtaining a licence. Make sure to pass all the exams.
Step 3 :-
 Voila!! you get yourself a B2/B license! 

2. I have B2 License, I want to get a B License. 
Need an upgrade in your life is it? fret not. 
Step 1 :- You need a ‘L’ license first. You can go ask for your driving academy to do it (just register and pay the first payment and you need to provide your photo with white background and wait for a couple of days till they said the license is ready) OR you can do it yourself (bring your IC / PASSPORT and your photo with white background) and go to JPJ, request for ‘Tambah Kelas’ / upgrade to B License. Fill up the form, submit and make a payment depending on how many months that you want, and you can take your license within the hour depending on how many people are there. 
Step 2 :- Refer to the process of obtaining a license number 7 till 14. 
Step 3 :- Voila!! you get yourself a B license! 

3. I have a car license, I want to get a motorcycle license.
I split this to two types of case :- 
Case 1 :-
You have a car license, but you do not have a motorcycle license.
Case 2 :-
You have a car license, but you only have B2 license and want to upgrade to B license. 

For case 1, if you wish you can skip the Computerised Theory Examination. SORRY, you can’t skip that exam. Kindly refer to the process of obtaining license and complete all the steps. 

For case 2, you will have the same case as Question 2. Kindly refer that question and answer.


4. I want to take a motorcycle license, but I don’t know how to ride a bike. What do you suggest?
Don’t worry, everybody can take the license, kindly refer to question 1 about the process, and our teacher will guide you though out the practice. I will suggest you take B license as you will not spend more in the future as in the license have no limit to any type of motorcycle. You can come to our campus and request to take a look for our motorcycle before you register with us and by that time you can decide which license you want to take. 

GOODLUCK for those who would like to take a motorbike license. I hope this information will be useful to you. If you have even more question, you can send us and email, or DM/PM us at our social media Instagram and Facebook. 
Have a good day everybody.
