Yo!!!

1. Register at SSDC (Woodlands) I am learning there too!!!

2. Before you even dream about touching the car, you must pass your TTT (Theory Trail Test) and then must book and pass your BDT and get your PDL (paper license) and go book for FDT.

3. School = High pass rate, Expensive!!!, Faster to get your license
Private = Low pass rate, Cheap, Slow (Need to book circuit and blah blah blah)

5. School = $70 per lesson
Private = $25 - 40 per lesson

6. School = around 6 months... (Provided everything pass)
Private = near 1 year... (Need to book circuit and alot of shit stuff such as waiting and some bo standard teaching)

PS:

I passed my BDT and FDT on first try...

And take manual... Dont get laughed at by taking automatic along with the babes... You will be called a P***y...

BDT and FDT must first time pass... If now per fail need to wait for around 1 - 1.5 months to retake...

Private will kena scolded more than your mum scolded you for the entire week

Re: Want to get my driving license..

;o how many lessons must we go through?
What does most of the acronyms stand for? :S

Bozobearbear added 1 Minutes and 4 Seconds later...

And what does SSDC offers?
Just register and ill take some tests?
Which part of the test requires me to get a private instructor etc etc? only the final driving test?

Yup...

BDT = Basic driving theory (Needs some common sense)
FDT = Final driving theory (Needs abit of thinking and car techy)
PDL = probational driving license (After you finished BDT)

You dont need a private instructor... the school provides instructor...

BDT is commonly known as BTT too. Basic Theory Test.. Similar as Final too. FTT.

I didn't enroll into school for my BTT and FTT.. Because I can study the book myself. I find it waste of money to have theory lesson with school. Haha. If you think you are good in studying. Then be a private student. Just go to ssdc book your test date. rmb to bring $6 for the booking.

If you are going to be a private student... This is the route you will be taking...
1. Book and study hard to pass your BTT first. (Fastest takes around 1-2months later)
2. Apply your PDL immediately after you passed BTT. Rmb to prepare $25.
3. Sign-up in driving school if you wanna learn from school...
Or
3. Contact a private driving instructor here:
learn-to-drive.spf.gov.sg/services/learn_to_drive/passingrates/private.htm
Alternatively I can recommend you my private instructor.

4. Learn how to drive!

Theory Test:
$6 + $6 = $12

Application for Provisional Driving License:
$25

Practical Lesson:
Depends. really depends.

Btw. Private doesn't mean low-passing-rate. It can be a cost-saving for people who have budget.

You can buy from the driving school or any popular. look for the orange book. "The Offical Handbook - Basic Theory of Driving".

The blue one is Final. Do PM me if you really need some help there. I would be glad to help you!

Thanks!
and some question again.
Provisional Driving license and Traffic police practical test.
Whats the difference? both got to be tested on driving?

and on the website
" * Class 3C - Has not passed any Traffic Police Theory Test. It is a theory and practical course
* Class 3B - Passed Basic Theory Test. It is a Final theory and practical course
* Class 3F - Passed Basic and Final Theory Test. Needs to attend one defensive theory lesson and practical course.
* Class 3T - Theory Course only. Student can convert the theory course to practical course by topping up the enrolment fee of S$53.50.
"

So if i really want to take lessons under them,which class am i suppose to take?
3T or 3C?
Practical course = ?

After passing your BTT, you need to apply PDL(Provisional Driving license) to learn to drive on the road. But this is all for private learners only.

If you are going to learn your theory and practical in school. I guess the school will make the necessary arrangement for you.

You will be taking lesson for cars. So it's Class 3. Others don't bother.. Right now, decide whether you wanna be private learner or school learner.

Hmm so are you private learner or school learner?

If you're school learner, after you pass, go get your PDL and start your practical lessons.
If you're private learner, after you pass, book your FTT.

But for now, just memorise the entire book.
The test shouldn't be too hard, but there are some tricky questions around.

Know the difference between these two signs:

The one on the left means "Ahead only (Turning left and right is prohibited)"
The one on the right means "One way traffic ahead (Turning left and right is permitted)"

Also make sure you know the bus lane timings and what differences are there in the double-yellow lines and zig-zag yellow lines.

If there are E-prep tests at SSDC, I suggest you go for one of them to familiarise yourself with the procedure as well as possible questions. Similar questions do come out in the actual test!

Nice tips there!

Must remember this:
1. Police man handsigns
2. Bus lane timing, full day or normal bus lane?
3. Similar looking signs but different meaning.
4. Prohibitory/warning sign's shape. (like what aforl mentioned above)
5. Penalty for parking on double zig-zag line
6. Lines on the centre lane. Are you allowed to cross? or park?

The rest that i have not mentioned, please remember too!

If you are free. check out this site.
http://www.singaporedrivingtests.com/ <-- my $$ got scammed by them, qns all repetitive. however it helped me alot on my Btt.
http://www.sgdriving.net/ <-- free qns, just keep doing and doing 10 qns by 10 qns.
http://www.aceonline.com.sg/ <-- this one is good, you can use iphone to access the side and answer the qns. But requires $$. I'm using this to practice my FTT

all these qns above are quite near to the real test.

Yes. Don't worry the tests are quite passable.

There's nothing such as recommended for female. I recommend everyone to take manual.
