Passing the Singapore driving tests

Posted on July 3, 2016 in Uncategorized

Passing the Singapore driving tests can be a breeze if you are prepared for them. Part of the procedures to getting your Singapore driving license involves passing these driving tests – both theory tests and practical tests.

There are 3 tests all learner drivers must pass in order to be awarded the driving license. The 3 tests are Basic Theory Test, Final Theory Test, and Practical Test, in sequential order. As the waiting time to each test upon booking is approximately 2 months, the shortest time learner drivers can expect to get their driving license will be within 6 months from their registration date as a learner driver.

Passing the theory tests are easy. For me, I just relied on 2 books – Basic Theory Test book and a Final Theory Test book, both issued by the Traffic Police in Singapore. Learner drivers just have to read and understand all the traffic rules and information contained inside these books before taking the theory tests. If learners truly understand everything stated inside the book, they will have no problem passing the theory tests. If learners need extra help, there are online supplementary materials on driving theories. In addition, the driving centres even offer learners mock theory tests to prepare for the actual theory test.

What’s more challenging is the practical test.

The first step towards passing your practical test is to look for a good driving instructor. There are both private driving instructors and school driving instructors, and each have their pros and cons. I shall touch more about this topic on a later post. If you want to look for private driving instructors, I will recommend approaching driving match up agencies such as Sglearntodrive – http://sglearntodrive.com. If you are looking for school driving instructors, simply sign up for practical lessons at one of the 3 driving centres.

You should take enough lessons before you book your practical test. Be comfortable and confident driving on the roads. Make sure all your driving techniques are correct. In essence, practice make perfect. Go for adequate lessons before attempting your practical test.
