Key milestones

In Singapore, most of the people still remembers and aim for the 5 C’s – Cash, Condo, Car, Country Club, and Credit Card. Among these 5 C’s, the condo, car, and country club are the relatively more difficult things to achieve. To be able to get a car, you must first know how to drive and possess a driving license in Singapore.

Driving is becoming a top target for everyone is Singapore, especially when many have experience the crowded public transport – during peak periods especially. The human population in Singapore is increasing, but the capacity of the public transport is remaining the same. This may mean that it will get more and more uncomfortable to take public transport in Singapore in the future.

As a result, private drivers like Uber will become more popular – although the ultimate goal of most Singaporeans would be to get their own car and drive it like a boss! So if you also have this goal of not wanting to squeeze with others, then get a private driving instructor in Singapore today too to start taking your lessons and pass your test to get your very own Singapore driving license!

Trust me, having your own valid Singapore driving license quickly is a great feeling. Passing your Singapore driving test on your first attempt is about one of the best feelings you can ever have and experience in your life!

THis is because you only need to pass it once and you get to keep your driving license which is international – this means that with this driving license you got in Singapore, you would be able to convert it to any country’s even if you were to migrate or something to another country in future. That’s the best part about Singapore’s driving license.

Make sure to get a good private driving instructor as like how I have mentioned in my previous posts if you want to pass your driving test on your first try.

School Or Private Driving Instructors?

If you are looking to pass your practical driving exam in Singapore, you will probably need to pass your BTT and FTT first. Although you could technically apply for a valid provisional driving license after passing your basic theory driving test and start taking driving lessons, take note that your PDL will only last for 6 months and because waiting for the practical Singapore traffic police driving test takes about 1 to 2 months from booking, This means that you definitely need to pass your final theory test and practical driving test in Singapore on your very first attempt for both or you would need to renew your PDL. Of course, it is also highly likely you can achieve that if you study and memorize the details for the final theory test and take driving lessons from a good private driving instructor Singapore.

After that you need to get your PDL and then look for a qualified driving instructor. But how should you decide on one and should you get a school one or a private one?

First of all, private driving instructor Singapore are definitely much more experienced than the instructors at schools because they have hands-on experience for mostly more than 20 to 30 years. They thus have lots of experience and their own teaching style for driving as well.

Secondly, private driving teachers usually are less structured (generally speaking) and may or may not have a structured curriculum and some of them go with sheer experience. If you prefer a structured manner, then schools would be the better choice for you.

Prices are definitely much cheaper for private. Even the most expensive private tutors are way cheaper than a regular school tutor.

Priority and speed in booking for the exam is given to school students, other students might have to usually wait longer for their exam slot to take place.
