Before You Perform Your Driving Stunts

Before you perform your driving stunts, and before you win your first Nascar race, please, take your driving lessons in Singapore first. Many kids think just because they have driven some kind of computer game then they know how to actually drive a real car. When you drive a go cart, you can easily see the four corners of the car. However, when it comes to a real car, you can hardly see them – sometimes, you have to estimate and rely on part skill and part intuition.

Some learner drivers think that because they have driven a golf cart they are capable of taking the driving test in Singapore immediately. There is a reason that the age limit for a golf cart and requirements to drive it is so much lesser than that of a real full international driving license. There is a reason why even outside of Singapore, there are also stringent regulations on driving licenses. It is very different and because the cars can move at much higher speeds than anything else, it is potentially much more dangerous so you need to take many more driving lessons than most students think they actually need.

So always make sure that you go for proper driving lessons. I know that for overseas, such as perhaps in certain European country side areas, you do not actually need to learn from a qualified teacher, as long as you pass the final practical examination – this is not the case in Singapore, you need official driving lessons.

There is also a type of driving lessons which teach you how to perform driving stunts, that’s another level and a whole different level above normal driving – so even after you get your driver’s license do not go crazy and start doing some Jackie Chan stunts.

For normal students, I recommend you go for private driving instructors because they are much cheaper and their teaching skills are actually better (yes it’s true they have many more years of teaching driving experience).
