At the point of penning this (December 2014), I’ve just cleared my Final Theory Test last month and I am schedule to take my Class 3 license (Manual) next year (January 2015). 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.
This process is quite simple, and I spent lots of time researching to check out:
1. What driving license should I take?
2. The most economically (not cheapest but value for your money) option to get my Singapore driving license
3. What you need to avoid by doing this
4. Changing of different private instructors (not all were good) until I settled for one great one.
And oh boy, unless you just want to throw money (more expensive) with the driving school, You should try the route I have taken. 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.
For this website, I look forward to sharing my experience with you and I hope your journey will be much easier in comparison with what I experienced. We make an effort to give you the best match for you in looking 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 first step in obtaining your driving license in Singapore.
Specifically we’re talking about motor cars Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA.
Note: Class 3C / Class 3CA are new licenses issued by the Traffic Police effective 1st June 2015.
To make things simpler, despite any kind 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’re taking.
Whether you’re opting 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 wish to work with private driving instructors later. In fact we suggest you to register with the school when you’re preparing for your Basic Theory Test.
Being a student, you can take more mock (simulated) basic theory test tests 2-3 hours prior to the actual exam. It’s going to greatly assist 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) consist of both theoretical and practical lessons.
The sequence of your driving lessons are as (in order):
1. Basic Theory Lessons (theoretical)
You are able to really study from home at your own comfort you can also attend the lessons taught in various driving schools. To be honest, the Basic Theory Test revolves around 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)
Commonly known as “Advance Theory Test”, you can too attend final theory driving lessons if you’d like to and similar to 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 attend a driving school for your school driving lessons or engage a private driving instructor for your private driving lessons.
