This process is actually comparatively simple, and I spent lots of time researching to find out:
1. What driving license should I take?
2. The most economically (not cheapest but value for money) way to get my Singapore driving license
3. What you need to avoid by doing this
4. Changing of various private instructors (not all were good) until I settled for one good one.
And oh boy, if you don’t simply want to throw money (more costly) with the driving school, You should try the path I have taken. When taking your Singapore driving license, you can hire a private driving instructor for your practical tests at the same time while studying for your basic theory test and final theory test. Check out the Traffic Police Singapore website for other details.
For this website, I look forward to sharing my experience with you and I hope your journey will be less complicated in comparison with what I experienced. We aim to provide the best match for you in hunting for your private driving instructor and elearning support for your Basic Theory Test (BTT) and Final Theory Test (FTT).
Passing your Basic Theory Test is your step one in getting your driving license in Singapore. In Singapore, you can take your driving lessons in any of the driving centres here: Bukit Batok driving centre, Comfort driving centre (ubi driving centre) and Woodlands driving centre.
Specifically we are referring to motor cars Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA.
Note: Class 3C / Class 3CA are new licenses issued by the Traffic Police effective 1st June 2015.
For making things simpler, despite any type of Class 3 you will have to clear your Basic Theory Test and Final Theory Test thought your Practical Driving Test differs with regard to the requirements of the type of Class 3 license you are taking.
Whether you are going for Manual or Auto (Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA licenses), the Basic Theory Test (Exam) takes place in several driving schools.
Note: You are able to sign up as a school student for your basic theory test at CDC even when you plan to work with private driving instructors later. The fact is we suggest you to enroll with the school while you are getting yourself ready for your Basic Theory Test. Being a student, you’ll be able to take more mock (simulated) basic theory test tests 2-3 hours prior to the actual exam. It’s going to greatly help you in clearing your Basic Theory Test.
Taking Your Driving Lessons in Singapore for your Traffic Police Driving License Test
Generally speaking your driving lessons (from beginning to end) involve both theoretical and practical lessons.
The sequence of your driving lessons are as (in order):
1. Basic Theory Lessons (theoretical)
You can really study from home at your own comfort or you can attend the lessons covered by the various driving schools. To be honest, the Basic Theory Test involves the basic concepts of driving and understanding the various road signs and traffic regulation. Pretty much rote learning (memorization) in my personal opinion.
2. Final Theory Lessons (theoretical)
Typically referred to as “Advance Theory Test”, you can too attend final theory driving lessons if you wish to and like the Basic Theory Tests, we feel it is sufficient to study at your own pace.
3. Practical Driving Lessons (practical)
Unlike the theoretical nature above, you are required to either enroll in a driving school for your school driving lessons or engage a private driving instructor for your private driving lessons.
