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.
What is the absolute best time to drive around on the roads in Singapore? This may be a dumb question as almost everyone may have chosen night time as the best time to drive around in Singapore. At least for me it is the case.
First of all, it is much more cooling at night than in the day, thus a more enjoyable driving experience too.
But all this is made even better if you drive a convertible. This is because you can wind down your roof and experience the cool gushing wind brushing against you while driving on the roads of Singapore at night. This may not be comfortable in the day due to the hot sun, unless you want a suntan. Especially because Singapore’s weather is usually sunny or rainy and is seldom cloudy, you want to drive with your top down only at night in Singapore.
Also, there are fewer cars at night in Singapore – lesser traffic. Thus, it is easier to drive around in Singapore. What’s more, you can drive at a faster speed too, giving you more adrenaline rush and satisfaction. But remember to be vigilant on the roads, react according to situations and make sure to still keep at the respective driving speed limit.
However, you might want to note that you want to drive slower if it is the first time you are driving at night. There are some people who have taken driving lessons from private driving instructors at night (you can only take such night driving lessons when it comes to private driving instructors – making them even more valuable). However, not every student learns driving at night and so if you are one of those students who have only taken day driving lessons in Singapore, then you might want to slow down when it comes to night driving. This is because your eyes may not be used to the roads at night as it is significantly darker even with the many road lamps. Your visibility will definitely be much lower at night.
