  1. muhammad syafiie

    So the enrollment fees is $70. $28-$34 per hour. Does it includes the instructor fees as well?

  2. Sim Si Hui


    Understand that each lesson take about 90 mins, but your rate is $28 to $32per hour. Thus does this mean that for a 90mins lesson, the fee will be more? If yes, how much is the cost for 90mins.

    Please advise!

  3. Sim Si Hui


    Understand that each lesson take about 90mins,but your rate is about $28 to $34 per hour. Thus, does this mean I have to pay additional for 90mins courses? If so how much will it cost.

    Please advise

    • Majority of lessons are 60 minutes but you can request from the instructors for 1.5 hours. the cost will be from 48dollars to about 52 dollars depending on transmission type and location. These prices are set by the instructors that is why there is a range in prices.Some instructors charge differently

  4. Hi, will you do pickup and deliver to home?

    • hi. Because the instructors have a really packed schedule. they normally do not do pickup and send you back you back to your home. You will have to go to the specific locations to learn from the instructors depending on the location

  5. Hi, is there any instructor located in punggol/sengkang?

    • sorry we don’t have any instructors at that location. You will have to go down to the driving schools in order to learn from the instructors. It is inconvenient for the instructors when they need to teach the next student which is why they do not normally do pickups


  6. Siti Nur Fadhillah

    Hi….i already have my class 3A n would like to take a manual license…. already applied for PDL….. do i still hv to go thru between 20-25 lessons like d sch or it depends on my ability to learn fast? FYI im 30wks pregnant n got a letter frm my gynae for d practical lessons….. how do i go about getting a private instructor? Preferably female if possible….

    • Hi Siti,
      To be honest driving a manual car is a total different ball game from an automatic transmission car. It is really great that you decided to gowith a private driving instructor because they will be able to gauge your progress and also probably allow you to skip lessons if you are well versed with driving. There is very very few female private driving instructors in Singapore and we do not have any female instructors in our database i’m afraid. That said our instructors are all very professional in conduct and you can rest assure you will be in safe hands. Do sign up with us in the contact us page if you want to take the step forward. and we will get back to you within 48h.

  7. Hi,

    I will like to check if there any driving instructor rates between $28-$32? If yes, please do tell me more details about the registration? is there any meeting point or fetching my place as I’m staying in Bt Batok area. Thanks

    • Hi Sabrina,
      The rates you mentioned for $28-$32 dollars are rates for about 3 -4 years ago. Since then the price has gone up due to the cost of cars. The price is now about $32-$36 depending on off peak and on peaks. The meeting place is at BBDC the ESSO petrol station or at bukit gombak MRT carpark.

  8. Hi, do you have any driving instructors located in the West for weekday morning lessons? Also, where will the lesson be conducted? Would like to confirm before making payment for registration.

    • Hi Eleanor.
      We do have driving instructors for both manual and automatic at the petrol station next to BBDC as well as bukit gombak MRT station carpark. Do inform us if you have any other questions.

  9. Hello,
    I’m looking for instructors around Ang Mo Kio/Yio Chu Kang area that are registered with SSDC, Off peak hours preferred. Do you have anyone that fits the bill?
    If I ever want to change the instructor assigned to me because of things like.. he’s always late, ending the lesson earlier than stated or has a bad attitude, what are the implications?

  10. Hi,
    What is the rate for car rental for driving test?
    And if I dislike my instructor, is it possible to change to another one?


    • it is about $150. sorry but we highly discourage people to change instructor. It is unfair to the instructor. If you find an instructor on your own you will only be able to switch instructor after paying another registration fee.

      • But what if I do have valid claims and evidence that the instructor is being unreasonable?

        Even though it may be unfair to change instructors as you’ve said, it is also unfair for the student who is paying for the lessons and not getting a proficient teacher.

        Thank you very much.

  11. Hi,

  14. Hi can u help me check if u have available instructors in the west for auto transmission? And what is the rate for the available instructor because i understand that it is a range from 30-38 per hour. Thanks

  15. Hi, is there knows how much does it cost to book only TP test alone ?

  16. Timothy Tay

    Hi there,

    This is Tim. I am not a first time learner. I studied driving in Australia, using an auto Lancer 2 years ago. Do I do the first time course again, or is there something else. I am quite keen to restart my learning and then attempt & pass in Sept/Oct before my Perth, Australia trip.

    Hope you can clear this up as I am very interested in what you are offering; please email directly on my provided one below. Thx.

    • Hi TImothy,
      It really depends how much you have learnt in Australia. I am unable to gauge for you whether you should learn as a refresher student or as a first timer. Do note that the Singaporean Traffic police is much stricter so i will highly recommend you to learn as a first timer. Subsequently the instructor will access your learning rate and advance you accordingly. As for your attempt to pass in Sept/Oct. i feel it is highly impossible. The waiting time just to book the TP test is already about 1.5 months. Considering what you need to learn i do not think you will be able to make it in that time line.

  17. Hi, are there automatic driving instructors for BBDC area after 7 pm on weekdays and on weekend mornings? And if after paying the registration fee, I am unable to accommodate to the instructor’s schedule, can I request for another instructor?

    • Hi WY,
      Just want to give you a heads up about the current situation nation wide. All locations have a lack of instructors from 7pm onwards including schools. I even heard school rejecting students because of the demand. Our instructors normally stop teaching from 6pm onwards in order to have some work life balance. As such, i will recommend you to try to keep your schedule open. If not you will probably have to wait indefinitely for an on-peak instructor to teach you.

      • Hi, thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I have to work and my working hours only end at 5.30 pm, so there is no way I can have lessons before 6 pm, since my work place is quite a distance away. In view of this, should I still proceed to register and pay the registration fee?

  18. Just to check on the availability for class 3A private instructor on the ‘off peak/ peak period’ on these days (Monday, Tuesday and alternate Wednesday). Location @ BBDC

    I stay around ‘boon keng mrt’ area. Do you have instructor to teach over at that location, or I am require to travel to BBDC to learn.

    • hi Koh, if you stay boon keng i would recommend you to take lessons at Eunos (CDC) where we do have instructors available.

  19. Hi,
    Do you have any instructor (auto) available 730pm onwards on weekdays? BBDC area

    • Hello Ian, we do not have any instructors currently for auto after 730pm , all instructors are available from Mon-fri till 6pm. For auto instructors nearby BBDC i would recommend woodlands, we do have instructors that teach beyond 6pm.
      Do let us know if you have other enquiries.

  20. Hi, may I know if you have malay instructor at bb?

    • Hi Mezzy,
      Yes we do have instructors for both auto and manual transmission. Do sign up to avoid disappointment. Slots are running out fast.

  21. Hafiz Faizal

    Hi, do you have auto instructors near ubi after 5pm on weekdays? Want to double check before registering.

  22. Melody Yuri Sugita

    Hi, may I know what is the hourly rate and 1.5 hour rate for first time drivers (just got PDL and passed BTT)? Will be interested in taking up Manual, preferably tested at Ubi CDC.

  24. Hi, do you have any instructor available at tiong bahru area?
    Thank you.

    • Hi Carol,

      Thank you for your message.
      We do not have any at Tiong Bahru. Most instructors are located near their driving centres, namely Bukit Gombak, Ubi and Woodlands.
      To help you better, please email pdienquiries@gmail.com and kindly advise if you intend
      1) to learn Auto or Manual drive,
      2) require Bilingual or Mandarin speaking instructor,
      3) Non Peak (weekdays, morning till 5pm) OR Peak (weekdays after 5pm and weekends)

  25. Hi, my test centre is at cdc. I am a full time working adult and end work at 6.30pm. Do u have any driving Instructors that are available to teach on weekdays at 7.30pm and weekends anytime? The faq page did not address this and it seems from the earlier questions posted that there are very limited Instructors that can accommodate such timings for working adults.

  26. Hi

    Any chance there’ll be 3A English lessons for CDC?

  27. Hi

    I am coming back to Singapore from Sydney for a few months to obtain my auto license. I am keen on starting lessons after 9th September onwards. Could a PDI be arranged for that at Ubi CDC? I’m looking for 2-3 times a week with 2 lessons at 1 go.

    • Hi Sisi,

      We have available instructors at Ubi CDC for Auto drive.

      Most instructors are booked at least two weeks ahead with their current batch of students.
      However, if you are learning Non Peak hours for weekdays before 5pm, it will be easier for the instructor to accommodate you soon.
      You can request to start for 2 times a week and thereafter 2-3 times a week.
      They take a maximum of 120 minutes per session.
      It will be extremely tiring as a new driver to learn at a 4 hour session. As such, may I would recommend instead that if you want to take more lessons, to arrange at least 90mins break in between.

      Arrangements for bookings can be made after full registration at http://www.privatedrivinginstructors.com.
      Welcome back and look forward to matching an instructor for you soon!

      Aly πŸ™‚

  28. Dear Privatedrivinginstructors.com, may I please ask what is the normal waiting time to have the first driving lesson after registration? Thanks.

      You can actually use our sign up page to pay using either a paypal account or a debit/credit card. Do

  30. Hi. I just want to check with you that, if I already have find a private instructor. Do I still need to pay $65 and register ?????. Kindly please reply me ASAP. Thanks

    • Hi Farzana,
      If you have a new isntructor but you have not started any lessons with him, you can learn with our instructors. Our registration fee is cheaper than the average registration fee of instructors working outside.

      However if you have paid with our system and we have allocated you with an instructor, we won’t be able to do a refund for you.

      If you have an instructor of your own outside you just have to liaise with the instructor himself/herself.

    • Hi Farzana,

      If you have been assigned a private instructor from ue, you do not have to register and pay $65.00 again.
      To clear your doubts, you can write to pdienquiries@gmail.com and I will personally check for your registration form.

      Thank you and happy weekend! πŸ™‚ Aly

      For on peak periods which is from weekdays 5pm onwards and weekends(entire day) is very packed. Therefore if you do want to secure lessons you will have to book about 3-4 weeks in advance.

  42. Hi,

    Do you have available instructors from now (immediate), class 3A, for both peak and off peak?

    I would like to avoid registering and not having instructors available.

    • Hi Sally,

      we do not have instructor whom are available immediately. This is because most good instructors would have their current students whom have booked them ahead of time. The instructors will not cancel current students booking just to allocate new students.

      As such, bookings are first come first serve basis. We will allocate new students instructors and the first lesson normally starts in about 2 weeks thereafter.

      Thank you.

  46. Hi. Can I check if there is manual instructor available for BBDC during weekends? And is there minimum number of lessons for first time learner? Thanks.

    • Hi Jin long, There are no minimum number of lessons for first time learners. Thats the great thing about private learning. If you are really confident in your skills and your instructor also sees that, you can progress really quickly.

      Im afraid there is no manual instructors availale during weekends, usually the weekend slots are very high in demand and securing a slot is very difficult. I would recommend trying to go for weekdays instead.
