    My question is when learning parallet parking is in bukit batok centre or at car park? If at car park any additional charge?

    • The answer is both. The instructor will bring you to an open spot where you can practice parallel parking. You will go into the circuit as well to do the whole circuit package which is tested in the TP test.

  3. If only take driving just one day on sunday morning. Is it possible?

    • yes it is possible but we will recommend learning on other days as well. Most sundays are very high in demand and if there are too many students that want weekend slots it might be hard to book a slot unless u book way in advance

  4. If only take up one day on sunday morning is it possible??

  5. I just got my pdl n need a malay private instuctor can i get the number directly?

  6. Hi, may i know how many times we are allowed to change instructors if we find they do not suit us? and are there extra fees for changing of instuctors.

    • Hi Roy,
      As an industry standard we highly do not recommend changing instructors. It is disruptive for the instructor’s schedule and also there will be an additional registration fee for a change of instructor. We will only accept changes of instructor if:
      the instructor does not answer calls / messages when supposed to.
      the instructor rejects you due to no availability
      if the instructor hits u or verbally abuses you during lessons (we will investigate)

      Do understand that all our instructors have years of experience under their belt and they are professional in their conduct. It is also the faster method to pass your TP especially if you follow their tips.

  7. Hi whats the next step after i register?

  8. Is it possible to get an mannual driving instructor as soon as possible? as i want to start my practical soon

    • Yes Yoges,
      Just sign up with us and we will get you an instructor within 2 working days. After which you can proceed to book your first lesson with him

  9. Hi. To book a private instructor we need to pay the enrollment fees right. But they say that private instructor will only be able from mon to fri till oct thn aft oct how we are going to learn ????

  10. Hi…. it has put in the update column tht auto driving instructors are available only till oct than after October how are we going to learn. “-BBDC Auto/Bilingual Instructor only available Mon-Fri 5pm (till Oct).” Can u kindly pls tell me what am I supposed to do

  11. Hi,
    May I know if I will be able to choose the instructor I want due to the rates they have (eg, I want an instructor with rates that is $34 but you gave me one that is $38) or once you have given me an instructor I will have to stick to him/her?

    • Hi Cg,
      One of the reasons why we might have given you the particular instructor is due to his schedule. We often get feedback fro mthe instructors if they are too full for the current month. We could give you the instructor that is cheaper, however, you might find yourself only learning once a month which is not recommended.
      in addition, another reason is because the instructor might be using a newer car. Instructors tend to charge slighter higher especially when they are using a newer car. Do let me know if you have any other questions.

  12. Hi,
    I would like to have a private instructor near the area of Kim Seng Road.
    1) I am looking for a instructor with available slots weekdays around 6pm.
    2) Are cars usually provided? Will my fares be cheaper if I use my own car for practice?

    • Hi Marcus,

      Thank you for your message.

      We have instructors available after 6pm. There is no pick up at Kim Seng. Pick ups are usually located near driving schools as instructors will let you practice along the TP routes.

      May I know if you have an existing Licence (hence the thought of using your own car)? Will you be learning Auto or Manual drive?

      Please advise so I can help better.

      You can alternatively register via our website http://www.privatedrivinginstructors.com and we will assist you from there on.

      Thank you,
      Aly 🙂

  13. Hi, i just got my pdl at bbdc and needs a private driving instructor for class3 ..

  14. Hi Admin,
    I am yet to book my PDL but have a query.I work in a hospital n I do 3 rotating shifts n not a fixed shift each week.My roster will indicate my OFF days which I will only get to know when it’s released but I can inform e date I’m off for tat week before a week only.So, quite worried and confused how it will work for me.

    • Hi Aru,

      Thank you for your message.
      For your case, compared to booking at the driving school, it will be easier with a private instructor.
      What you can do immediately after getting your work roster is to inform the instructor your Off day and see which timing he is available to teach.Due to your short time notice, it would be more practical if you can follow the available timings which an instructor on your off day.

      If you are keen to sign up, please register via http://www.privatedrivinginstructors.com so we can help match one for you.

      Thank you, Aly 🙂

    • Hi Ruby,

      Thank you for your message.
      Yes you can learn practical private and take your TP at BBDC or SSDC, both which are much nearer compared to CDC.

      You can register via http://www.privatedrivinginstructors.com. we will be able to assign you an instructor and first lesson would usually start in about 2 weeks time.

      Thank you, Aly 🙂

  18. HI,

    My son have PDL, can he get an Indian Private tutor to train him.

    • Hi Patricia,

      Thank you for your message.

      We currently do not have any Indian instructors available.
      If you are willing to consider an English speaking instructor, we have plenty available with more than 30 years of teaching expertise for most nationalities whom speak English.

      Please write to pdienquiries@gmail.com for a faster reply or register via http://www.privatedrivinginstructors.com and I will be able to assist you from thereon.

      Thank you.

  19. Hi, as i am not very sure about being a private candidate. I do have to source my own private instructor and register myself am i right? As i am a student from BBDC but switching to private, i do have to source myself right? How long will it usually take to get lessons from private instructors? And may i know whats the average period of time needed before being able to get a license for a manual driver

    • Hi Geraldine,

      Thank you fro your message.

      We have instructors available to teach in about 2 weeks time for the first booking. The reason fro this time frame is based on student/instructor availability. Do remember that these instructors have their current students to teach too. 🙂 That being said, after your first lesson, you can expect to get a minimum of at least one booking per week (*subject to availability).

      It’s awesome easy to switch from school to private student. You need only register with us online via http://www.privatedrivinginstructors.com and we will assign you an instructor.

      The average time required is dependent on the student’s own ability. Those whom learn faster will get their licence within a shorter time frame compared to a slow learner.

      Please write to pdienquiries@gmail.com for a faster reply or register via http://www.privatedrivinginstructors.com and I will be able to assist you from thereon.

      Thank you.

  21. Hi i need a PDI…i need just 4hrs lessons n go for TP @ BBDC. I need instructor who can speak english. Weekends lessons…thnx 🙂

  22. Hi Sir/Mdm,

    I’m currently in my 7th month with the driving school and in my attempt at taking FTT. My university schedule seems to clash with the driving school most of the time. Applied my PDL a week ago, only to realise the next available slot for practical lessons is in August. Hence, may I know how I should go about in wanting to switch from school to private?

    Thank you.

    • Hi Zanurah,

      Thank you for your message.

      To switch from School to Private, you need to update the school that you will be making the switch for practical lessons from school to private.

      Thereafter, you can signup and register as a private student http://www.privatedrivinginstructors.com.
      Look forward to hearing from you soon!

      Thank you. 🙂
