If you have not yet began your road or path to obtaining your driving license in Singapore, and are wondering how to actually go about applying and getting that driving license you have wanted ever since you turned 18 in Singapore, then make sure to take note of this post.
This applies for both driving schools and private driving instructor in Singapore and the steps are the same.
To obtain a Singapore driving license, you will need to first apply for a learner driving account at one of the driving centres in Singapore, either under a school learner, or a private learner. Make sure to apply under the Traffic Police department at these driving centers (Singapore Safety driving center at Woodlands, Bukit Batok driving center at Bukit Batok and ComfortDelgro driving center at Ubi area). Do not apply under the school because that means you are a school student (and school driving lessons cost an arm and a leg in Singapore). Make sure to apply under the Singapore Traffic Police department located within these driving schools.
After you have successfully set up your account, you will need to apply and sit for your Basic Theory Test (BTT). This BTT results is for life – this means that you will never need to retake this examination for the rest of your life after you have passed it once. Great isn’t it?
Next, when you passed your BTT, you can apply and sit for your Final Theory Test (FTT). At the same time, you can apply for Provisional Driving License (PDL) and start to take driving lessons. I recommend that you take lessons from private driving instructors in Singapore.
After you have passed your FTT, you can apply for, and sit for your practical test.
After passing your practical test, you will obtain your Singapore driving license! This entire process will take approximately between 6 to 8 months. Congratulations! Now you can drive on the roads of Singapore or most countries around the world because it is considered to be an international driving license.
