What To Expect For Your Driving Lessons In Singapore?

If you take driving lessons Singapore, you may want to note some of the following points simply because you don’t want to be caught unaware when you go for your lessons with either your school or private driving instructor.

1) Your instructor will teach you the various mechanisms in the car such as the signal, honk, turning on of wipers, e.t.c.

2) He will then usually teach you the steering of the wheel (this is straightforward)

3) Let you familiarize with the amount of pressure you need to apply on the accelerator pedal and brake pedal.

4) Once you are familiar with all that, you will learn much more interesting things such as U-turn, turning, three point turn, parking e.t.c.

5) After that, he will concentrate on having you drive around the usual test routes (this is the case for those students in Singapore who are learning from private driving instructors). For school students, you will be taught mainly in the circuit, where only the last few lessons before your examinations will you be given real road experience.

6) Vice versa, the private students will usually get fewer driving school circuit lessons and usually that comes in nearing the last part of the curriculum. If you are familiar with driving on outside roads however, you should do perfectly in the circuit. The only main thing you need to note is the clutch (for manual students) – because speeds are much lower within the circuits due to high traffic volume of learner cars. Auto transmission car learners with private driving instructors should find it super easy to pass.

So that’s all, then you will be going for the driving test which your instructor should have applied on your behalf (if you learn from private driving instructors) or you have applied (if you are a school learner).

Good luck for your test and may you quickly get your Singapore driving licence on your first try!

Getting a driving license in Singapore

Getting a driving license in Singapore is tedious. You will have to take and pass 2 theory tests and a practical test. What’s more, the booking for each of the tests will require a wait of approximately 2 months each. That totals to about 6 months, provided that you pass all the tests on your first tries. Make sure you get a good private driving instructor from http://sglearntodrive.com/

But all these long and somewhat tedious processes and steps have a great advantage when you finally own a driving license Singapore.

A driving license Singapore is recognized worldwide. You can easily apply for an international license before you depart on an overseas trip and that international license will allow you to rent and drive any cars in other countries. You can also convert instantly into another country’s license, which makes driving a pleasure as you do not need to go through many hassles.

This is also the reason why many expatriates to Singapore send their children to learn driving in Singapore too as their licenses can be easily converted when they return home.

There are basically 2 ways in which you can take practical driving lessons in SIngapore. The first of which would be learning from private driving instructors, which are freelance and certified driving instructors who will teach you using their own car. The second type of instructor in Singapore will be the school instructors – there are 3 driving test schools in Singapore – Ubi CDC, Woodlands SSDC, Bukit Batok BBDC.

Schools are more expensive but you usually get to take your driving exam earlier. Private tutors are much more reasonably priced but you need to wait for a longer time for your test date as priority is given to school students.
