With the mainbenefit of getting a private driving instructor to be the cost factor, the next challenge you’ve is usually to hire the suitable private driving instructor to prepare you for your practical test.
When you hire and work with a private driving instructor for the first time, there’s a one-time SGD$60 (industry average) as registration fee. The problem lies herein, imagine if you make payment for the $60 registration fee and doesn’t get the right private driving instructor? You wind up paying the registration fees for a new private driving instructor again (and you face the same risks still).
What we do in Kukudrivers is always to work with a pool of private driving instructors who’re good and come highly recommended. With regards to this, one man’s meat can be another’s poison. http://fibromyalgiaspains.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=111&action=edit
What to cover / learn in Basic Theory Test / Exam?
We strongly suggest you buy the Basic Theory of Driving – The Official Handbook from the school ( it comes as a package with the Final Theory Test handbook) when you book for your Basic Theory Test.
Introduction to driving (in Singapore), different classes of driving licenses
Singapore Road Signs and Signals (you literally have to memorise all these)
Singapore Traffic Rules and Regulations (again just pure memorisation)
Code of Conduct on the road
Parts and Control of A Car (Basic)
And other nitty gritty details which we will not cover here.
Once you clear your Basic Theory Test (you’ll get your results right away with a print out), your Basic Theory Test “Pass Results” stays with you for life. 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 simply means, you can go on to carry out the next 2 steps (together if you want)
1. Obtain a Provisional Driving License (PDL) – this allows you to learn practical lessons on the roads with a certified driving instructor. Without this PDL, you cannot book for your driving lessons
2. Book your Final Theory Test date. You definitely have to clear your Basic Theory Test Date before booking for your Final Theory Test Date.
We’ll help you clear your Basic Theory Test (BTT) easily.
Taking Your Driving Lessons in Singapore for your Traffic Police Driving License Test
In general 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. In fact, the Basic Theory Test revolves around the basic concepts of driving and learning 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 think it is sufficient to study at your own pace.
3. Practical Driving Lessons (practical)
Unlike the theoretical nature above, you are required to either sign up for a driving school for your school driving lessons or engage a private driving instructor for your private driving lessons.
