Hey guys for CDC induction program where and who should i look for?
Hi,

The cdc induction programme if u booked already the slot u just need to walk towards the carpark area exactly opposite pedestrian crossing where there is a small "smoking corner" where instructor usually smoke then the induction car will be parked over there.

Pretty short one induction programme the instructor will cover like seat belt,wiper,signal etc approx 30mins settle already.

Also, CDC will usually arrange 3 to 4 learner to 1 induction slot therefore the learner car will be very packed with learner so have fun in meeting new friends..

Good luck for your upcoming practical lesson manual or auto?

Remember your safety checks,signaling.

Before u engage reverse gear remember check the rear windscreen or else might risk getting 4pts failure to confirm safety.

Don't panic do your normal way if tester rush you just carry on your
normal pace.

Do update us on the result.

Wishing you advance success for TP!!

Hi guys, tried my best but I failed horribly with 42 demerit points, no immediate failure. Do parallel parking strike kerb (don't wanna argue with the tester, cause the wheel merely touched it) then, I kept checking blind spots but he's not satisfied, say I didn't check. Outside the road was okay, just that he said I didn't look into th side mirror when changing lane, even though I checked my blind spot.. Sigh... $.$ fly

Hi chelsf
Sad that you didn't make it this time, hope you good luck next time.
"fail to confirm safety": most likely you did not check through read wind-window before reversing. I got -4 point during my TP as well. I was told whenever you want to reverse (including half-way stopping during reversing), I must check at least once.

During lane change, have to check rear mirror then side mirror and last is blind spot. Blind spot check can't replace side mirror since you can see far without side mirror.

I believe you did your blind spot check. However, maybe not at right time? Have to check blind spot right before any steering action. When doing blind spot check, did you look through the rear passenger door window?

Practice a bit more and all the best for next test!

Hi Chelsf,

Sorry to hear that you didn't make it this round.

Pertaining to the failure to confirm safety 4pts I believe someone have cover which meant turn your head to check rear windscreen.

Moving to the blindspot perhaps the next round u can turn your head further to show the tester you are checking blindspot.

I can curious the tester claim you didn't look at side mirror I don't really believe it unless you have sixth sense don't need to see side mirror before lane change or else you will be risking your lives on the test car.

I think it would be good u get your instructor to focus on safety checks procedure be it circuit safety checks and also blindspot check with that certainly next TP you will perform well enough!!

JIAYOU!!

Hi CJW, thanks a lot for your kind words. He said I looked into the right side mirror (doing right turn) but not the left side mirror when I have to change back to the left lane.

The tester marked me down for changing lane abruptly as well. Don't really understand what that means though..

Hi abotnt, thanks a lot for the advice as well. Well I did checked the back window when doing reverse, just that when I'm halfway reversing, I didn't stop and look again.. Guess that's my fault as well..

Well for now, I'm quite upset and my next retest is all the way at September. Gonna take a break off from driving and hopefully I won't be that rusty..

Hi chelsf

Believe me, driving is just like swimming: once learnt, never forget. However, it'd better to book several revision practices before next TP.
For me, I created some cards about test tips so that I could read it during my free time. Thus I could remember all the necessary steps when I am in the car.

My understanding of "abrupt lane change" is turning your steering wheel too much during lane change.

Hi Chelsf,

Do go for some revision class before your next TP in September. At least can get some practice.

Hi chelsf,

No problem!!

Abrupt lane change is always pretty common in TP demerit for me my tester say my abrupt lane change is due to low speed while changing lane thus the vehicle was in a diagonal manner believe different tester have different interpretation of it.

Saw that you will be taking a break is good in the sense at least you could adjust your mindset and stay alert for the next one but I think it would be good perhaps take couple of lessons prior to TP.

Wishing you a advance success for next TP!!

Hey guys is it normal to go on the main road during your 2nd lesson (i'm taking class 3 manual)? I just started my 1st lesson yesterday and today the instructor drove me to the main road (ubi/kaki bukit stretch) and ask me to takeover. So being a beginner i obviously were not used to driving (gear changing, brake control etc) and messed up sometimes. Compared to my driving instructor yesterday who was super patient with me, this instructor said some demeaning words like "wow your driving so bad maybe you should switch to auto", "what you doing walao eh", "want me to say how many times" and he proceeds to look at his phone to whatsapp people. There is one incident when he looked at his phone and keep rushing me to go even when the traffic light is red. He even said "Don't know why they keep recruiting part time driving instructors to snatch our ricebowl." The session also finished 15 mins earlier. Feel like my money wasted and feel demoralised.
