How to renew PDL after many years?

Hi

I passed my basic theory test and final theory test somewhere in 2007 when there was still an SSDC at Yio Chu Kang Road.

That centre has since been pulled down and moved to Woodlands.

I have also since moved from Serangoon Gardens to Queenstown MRT makign Bukit Batok Driving Centre at Bukit Gombak mrt my nearest test centre.


How do I go about renewing the Provisional Driver's Licence at BBDC

Do I have to take the schools theory test first then I can go to the traffice police test centre in BBDC to renew the PDL


I lost the old pdl as well so I believe I can renew by using my NIRC.

I might consider private lessons or the full Class 3.

I failed around 4 rounds of Class 3A but my course was from SSDC at yio chu kang mrt from 7 years ago so it might be more worth it to take class 3 instead as the licence is more versatile.

I am starting the enquiries now as I plan to resign after my contract is over so I will be able to start second week of September 2013 there abouts.

Thanks for help.

I will also be looking for recomendation for good private instructor.

My worse skill last time when taking the test was anything to do with reversing and parking.

Driving forwards and speed limis wise no problem.

You go to driving center to register, at the same time tell them you got BTT already. This way you don't have to go for the theory lessons and price is cheaper for registration I believe. That is the case for SSDC la.

BTT no expiry date, you straightaway can apply for PDL already. Upon registration, straightaway book your FTT. The queue is 2-3 months long.

If you want your license fast, go school and ask them got express package or not. If you go ssdc, during registration you book for 20 pracs on the spot they allow you to book for TP immediately. More ppl more or less also need 20+ lessons to prepare so why not if you have the cash.

Ask whatever sch you want to go and see if got similar package or not.

I also similar case like you. Got BTT and FTT from years back. I didn't go for the theory lesson and my registration was cheaper. Was offered the express package, didnt took it cos not enough cash on hand.

I registered again in Jan at SSDC. Applied BTT on the spot and applied for FTT at the same time. My FTT date was in March. OTOT go for Pracs and got my TP date in Jun. From registration to my TP, exactly 5 months.

Best tip: Don't forget to bring your IC and PDL.

For my test, got this xmm give IC only. Instructor ask her, wheres your PDL? She looked up and softly say, "I never bring..."

Don't know should I pity her or what sia.

hi,

I have a very... stupid question to ask. LOL
I just passed my BTT, and the earliest FTT date I can apply for is in September. Can I still go ahead and apply for all driving lessons (both Circuit and Public road) before going for FTT? or I have to pass the FTT before I can go onto the public road?

Thanks in advance!

can apply PDL once u passed BTT...meaning u can learn driving under a instructor be it private or with school.....

I had completed my learning before my FTT hence after passing my FTT I had to wait for another 3 months for my PT lor...
