Economic theory has it that competition in the market leads to more options and better prices for consumers. While this is true on a macro level, as the consumer, having too many choices can be quite a headache. The internet is a excellent kick off point for you to do some studies before making a buying decision. Right here, we hope to provide you with as much information as we can to help you with your research as well as to have you onboard as our customer. We aim to be as informative as it can be and hopefully with information, you’ll be empowered to jump onboard as our customer.
Passing your Basic Theory Test is the first step in getting your driving license in Singapore. Specifically we are referring to motor cars Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA. You may visit Singapore Traffic Police website for more details.
Note: Class 3C / Class 3CA are new licenses issued by the Traffic Police effective 1st June 2015.
In order to make things simpler, regardless of 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 regards to the requirements of the type of Class 3 license you are taking.
Whether you are opting for Manual or Auto (Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA licenses), the Basic Theory Test (Exam) takes place in different driving schools.
Note: You can actually sign up as a school student for your basic theory test at CDC even if you intend to work with private driving instructors later. In fact we advise you to sign up with the school when you’re getting ready 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. This certainly will greatly assist you in clearing your Basic Theory Test.
What to cover / learn in Basic Theory Test / Exam?
We strongly recommend you purchase 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 really should try 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.
After you clear your Basic Theory Test (you will receive your results immediately with a print out), your Basic Theory Test “Pass Results” stays with you for life.
This implies, you can go on to do the next 2 steps (together if you prefer)
1. Obtain a Provisional Driving License (PDL) – this enables you to learn practical lessons on the roads with a certified driving instructor. Without the PDL, you can’t book for your driving lessons
2. Book your Final Theory Test date. You certainly have to clear your Basic Theory Test Date before booking for your Final Theory Test Date.
