Why Us?

We have instructors from Bukit Batok driving centre, comfort driving centre as well as Singapore Safety Driving centre. That’s all the driving locations in Singapore! We also have different transmissions to cater to class 3 and 3A license.Our private instructors are all certified instructors and have a well of experience under their belts. Some of the myths such as private instructors having low passing rates are attributed to the fact that many students choose to rush through the course without the instructor’s consent.We always recommend listening to the instructor’s advice on when you are ready before you embark on your final traffic police test. With such cheap rates and great flexible timings, the use of Private Driving Instructors is great especially for students, working parents as well as individuals who would like to get their driving licence quickly. Also we understand that registration is $75 to even $120 outside, that’s pretty much for a Compulsory registration fee in Singapore, thus we have decided to make the tertiary registration price of $65 a standard to all ages. Offering a Guaranteed savings of $10 or your money back guarantee if you go through us instead of directly through the driving instructors. www.PrivateDrivingInstructors.com provides refresher courses, remedial courses as well as first-time drivers with the training that is needed in order to pass your traffic police test.

How Fast can I Get my License?

The rate at which you can obtain your driving license is determined by the speed you are able to absorb during lessons. Lessons are normally divided into 3 different portions and can vary depending on your instructor. Twice a week would be a good start.
  • Basic training
    • road driving
    • turns
    • traffic rules
  • Advanced driving
    • parking
    • S course
    • crank course
    • slope
  • Circuit practice
    • same as above

  1. I wanted to take few sessions to clear my practical driving test. I have 15 years of driving experience in India. Wanted to convert my Indian license but singapore driving authority says my India license not supported so I have to go for full steps. Already cleared my BTT and FTT.

  2. Hello.

    I’m a holder of driving license.
    But long time no drive a car. So do you offer course something like refresher course?
    If you do, please let me know.

    Best

    Masafumi

    • Yes we do offer refresher courses. In the sign up page you can select refresher and upon payment we will get back to you in 2 days

  3. how I choose driving instructor and how fast can give test?

    • Upon payment it will take about 2 working days. As for the test it will depend how many lessons you take a week and also whether the driving instructor feels you are ready for the test.
      In most cases students always want to rush and end up failing because they aren’t really ready for the test. So I will recommend you to follow the instructor’s recommendation

  4. Hi, is it true that it is harder to pass with private instructors because we would have no experience in the circuit where the test is conducted?

    • Definitely not! thousands of students have gone with private instructors without any regret because it costs much cheaper. The private instructors can also bring you for circuit revision if you need it but at an extra cost because the instructor has to rent the time slot from the school in order for you to practice there.

  5. I have already went thru all the circuit and even attempt TP test twice; but than fail. i still have my PDL. so how to go about it.

    • hi,
      Jonathan here, all you have to do is sign up with us and we will get you a suitable instructor. would you like to have refresher lessons or start all over again?

  6. Hi, may I check what is your rate for Auto teaching for 1 hour & 1.5 hours ?

  7. How much charge refresher course?

  8. Hi, can I know what are all the car models you have and is it petrol or diesel, that you use to teach the students?
    Thanks

  9. I’m a beginner and do not know anything about driving.. I only know very very very bit from my Friend. So am I actually suitable for private driving lessons? Or should I just go for school lessons?

    • Hello Ying Hui,
      you do not need to have any prior experience to start learning driving from a Private Driving Instructor.
      It’s really your choice, i would highly recommend private instructors as they will stick with you till you are able to get your license.

      -Alson

  10. will I be allowed/able to have practical lessons almost Everyday ? So that I can have 20 lessons within a month and go for the prac test.

    • i would say it is not possible since it would take some time to internalise the driving techniques and the lessons you are learning, if you have the intention of rushing through you would not be able to focus on the important safety features as well.

  11. Wee Jun Hong

    Hi, I’m currently enrolled in a school now and I’ve passed both my btt and ftt. I’m also currently taking a few practical class 3 lessons but I find it very difficult to get slots. Is it possible for me to change from a school to a private instructor?

  12. I failed my practical. I need a change of instructor. An English -speaking one who can give me instructions calmly and clearly.

  13. Hi
    I don’t know how to drive and I have no document for driving.Where can I start to drive?I want to know driving and also want to get Singapore license.Could you explain me step by step how to do and the fees till I get License.I am working in S with Spass.I can learn in evening from 7 to 10 PM.

  14. I am looking for manual driving instructor . Please call me at (number removed) or email me.

  15. Basically I have already applied for my BTT but I might be going into the army for the next 2 years, is it possible to get my license within this 2 years? I heard that a private instructor will be much cheaper and also faster compared to the driving school itself. Do advise on whether I should pursue driving school or private instead. Thank you

    • Whether you can get the license within 2 years will really depend on your learning rate. Learning privately is definitely cheaper and faster compared to schools by over 40%. Just look at our Rates page to learn more about why so many students choose us. However, do note that private driving instructors don’t really have a structured learning process so if you need that for your learning maybe private driving instructors are not for you. The decision lies with you but thousands still prefer private instructors because of the price and because after all they are the pioneers in this industry.

  16. Darren Chua

    Hi, do I have to take and pass my BTT and FTT in the driving school first before I can apply for a private driving instructor? Or can I apply for private instructor from start to finish? I’m new to driving.

    • Hi Darren,
      You will have to pass the BTT before you can go for your practical lessons. You do not need the FTT. However you will also need the PDL(provisional Driving License) before you can learn from our instructors.
      that said you can still sign up with us and we will allocate an instructor for you. Then when you have your BTT as well as your PDl you can proceed to contact the instructor assigned to you and arrange for a lesson. Hope this helps you.

  17. Hello. I have passed both my BTT & FTT. My FTT is still valid but i lost my pdl. I have taken my lessons at bbdc in the past but that membership have since been terminated. Im thinking of switching to private this time. Must i is still go to bbdc for registration or can u settle everything for me? Thanks

  20. Hi I will like to take a licence car but haven go true terory test…can help me…tq

    • Hi,
      you will need to take the Basic theory test with the school first and apply for a Provisional driving license. Do visit the driving schools and they should be able to get you started

  21. Hi Private Driving Instructors !

    I’ve passed my BTT & FTT. Already gotten my PDL. How do I go about in starting my practical lessons with your instructors ? Do I have to go through any registration and such ?

    Thank you ! 🙂

  22. Hi.

      Jonathan

  26. Is ok to register when i meet the PDI?

    • Hi Dawn,
      Sorry but that is not possible. You will need to sign up with us and make payment and we will allocate an instructor based on your requirements stated in the sign up form. Rest assured as all our instructors have a proven record and were handpicked through face to face interviews. Many also have been in the business of teaching for over 10 years++.

  27. hi admin..

    I’m currently enroll as school now and I’ve passed both my btt and ftt. I’m also currently taking a few practical class 3 manual lessons but its very difficult to get slots. Is it possible for me to change from a school to a private instructor? And how do i change?

    • Hi Safie,
      You can do a switch from school to private but do note that you will have to go to the school to inform them that you want to learn from private i9nstructors. You will also not be able to book any practical lessons from the school thus forth. In other words, you will forfeit the registration fee from the driving school but you will still need to pay for the private instructors registration fee.

  28. I’ve passed my BTT and FTT and got my PDL and like to take up auto car lessons.
    Waiting for the school slots is very difficult. I am staying around Serangoon Central near Nex.
    Do you have an instructor around this area?
    Do they arrange pick up and send back before and after lessons?

    • Sorry but we only have instructors near UBI. they do not do pick up and send back. This is the industry norm because it is very inconvenient for the instructor to prepare for his next lesson if he provides a send back service.

  29. Nuril Batrisyia

    Hi!

    I was a student from CDC for almost 2 years now and I have sat for TP test once and I failed. My enrollment is expiring soon and I was thinking of changing to a private instructor. I want to ask whether I have to go through all 20 lessons again if I have the basic knowledge already before resitting for the TP test?

    • Hi Nuril Batrisyia , you do not need to go through all the lessons you will take what is needed and go for test.
      There is no fixed curriculum for private students, if the instructors determine you are ready they will send you for test.
      -Alson

  30. Hi,
    I’m a work permit holder and I’ve been driving for many years. There is a new requirement to take the practical test to continue driving the commercial vehicle. I understand that there is a need to take lessons before the test. Is your refresher course sufficient before I go for the practical test? Or do I have to go through like new drivers? Please advise. Thanks!

    • Hi Justin , you do not need to go through all the lessons you will take what is needed and go for test.
      There is no fixed curriculum for private students, if the instructors determine you are ready they will send you for test.
      However for your case since you already have a license you will be charged a refresher rate from $40/hour onwards
      let us know if you have any more questions.
      -Alson

  31. Hi, I’m interested in taking lesson for refresher course to drill on my driving especially on parking. May I know around how long I have to wait in order to start my lesson? And is it available at bt batok?

    • Hey Zhiting,
      refresher lessons are normally quite fast if you are an auto driver i would recommend taking some refresher over at SSDC where our demand is less and you would be able to get an instructor there faster 🙂
      let us know if you have any other questions
      -Alson

  32. Hi i previously was from school then i switch to private. So i took private lessons and attempted TP test but then failed. I heard that it is harder to pass if i take private and it is slower than school. Are there many slots on ur side? Will i have to wait longer than school before i can book TP again?

    • that is absolutely untrue! We have thousands of students that have passed on their first try using private instructors. In addition, many have commented that it is much cheaper and much fewer lessons due to the absense of needing to pass lessons before continuing on the next lesson. As of now we heard that the driving schools are fully booked. However we do have available instructors right now but is based on a first come first serve policy. Do sign up with us now to avoid disappointment.

  33. Hello may i check with u where is the pick up point and the rates for auto refresher driving lesson?

  34. Hi may i check with u where is the rates and meeting point of auto refresher course?

  35. Hi, I already got my PDL. I am looking forward to starting lessons either 15/7 or 18/7. Do you have any hotline for some enquiries? I am near BBDC, wants to learn manual transmission from a good instructor who can communicate in English. Thank you!

    • Hi Aldrich,
      i will send you my contact number over your email. As for the lessons, we will provide you an instructor but it will be your responsibility to contact the instructor to book the lesson dates. Just a heads up, be prepared to take off peak lessons on weekdays from 8am-5pm. reason being all isntructors island wide have really packed schedules and even the driving schools are even starting to reject students due to the sheer amount of demand.

  36. Hi, I half way taking my practical but decided to change instructor due to his behaviour. Would like to ask whether you have malay instructor?

  37. Hi,
    Im looking for PDI in bukit batok area as i registered myself at bbdc..Had valid license for 18yrs b4 been suspended for a year.Had to retake everything and got my PDL…Do i still need to relearned from scratch again?
    Cannot tahan liao…1yr is like 10yrs without license..
    Any recommendation?
    Tq.

  38. Hello, I would like to learn automatic driving, starting next friday. I have my PDL already. However, I will need 4 classes a week as I am in a hurry, will this be possible? If possible, I will enrol. Thank you!

    • Hi Kate,
      This is perfectly possible. However, do take note that majority of instructors have quite a packed schedule so in order to do this, you will probably need to take lessons during off peak hours and book your lessons at least 3 weeks in advance.

  39. Hello bro, I am at the end of stage 3 of Class 3 from SSDC. I got stage 4 to complete then I am allowed to take TP. However, SSDC keeps getting fully booked and next available slot is 2 months away and it is ridiculous. May I know if you have available patient and motivating PDIs who are lcoates in Woodlands? I live in Woodlands btw. Do reply me back, thank you bro.

    • Hi Farhat. If you have already been taking lessons from the driving school and just need a few more practical lessons to hone your skills you can only do it from the driving schools. This I’m afraid is the result of going by driving schools. The private instructors won’t be willing to take you because you won’t be able to take many lessons with them and the method of teaching is significantly different from the schools. The instructor won’t like it as well as they would feel like they are just being used just because of somewhere else is already fully booked. Hope you understand. Thanks!

  40. Muhammad fairoz bin kamsari

    Hi how do i apply and wats the rates like

  41. How long is the interval between each lesson?

    • Hi Amir,
      The interval between each lesson is up to you and the availability of the instructor. that is why we request students to book 2-3 weeks in advance in order to secure the most slots possible at your preferred timing.
