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...
Hello blurnard,

so in other words I can already drive on public roads with the instructor once I have my PDL right?
so I guess I have to leave a lot lessons after my FTT since I don't think I can get a PT date that soon either...

Hi d3n,

ok, thank you.
Got quite confused because my sister told me that when she took driving, her instructor kept asking if she passed her FTT already. if not she will be stuck doing circuit until she pass her FTT.

anyway, I applied for my FTT and the earliest date I got was only in September (((((( should I start my driving lessons now or I should wait till I pass my FTT then go for driving lessons? I'm assuming that I won't get the practical exam date that soon also :/

i dunno about your sis. when i take my driving lessons with BBDC, there is a total of 5 stages. 1st stage is basically inside school circuit practising turning at road junctions. 2nd stage, go public route (designated routes) to be familiar with road, road symbols and traffic rules, 3rd stage will be learning circuit topics like reversing, parking etc, 4th stage is a revision of everything and 5th stage is a mock TP to see if u are ready for TP.

not sure how pte instructor works these days but sometime back a few years ago, when i went with pte instructor, first lesson i already on the road.

maybe u can try to go for the lessons once a week or something like that...see for ur self if u r able to learn well not....if for eg u r the kan chiong type cant learn fast...then maybe u can go for more lessons etc...

for me I was under ssdc....basically I had pretty much completed all my learning before my FTT...so after passing my FTT and my TP date was about 2 months plus away...so I kinda stop going for lessons....only about 1 week before my TP then I went for another 5 more revision lessons.

Passed yesterday,1st attempt.
Just a few pointers:
-Go slowly at circuit,no need to rush.
-parking must be careful,dont hit kerb.
-must wayang,i.e check blindspot,confirm safety for parking.
-slow down when approaching traffic light
-For manual,speed for "big" road is 4th gear,"small" road 3rd gear.(no need 5th gear)
-Relax,and show the tester u are a confident driver
Good Luck!!!

I'm a private student before and took my TP test at SSDC. I passed my test on 2nd attempt.
I'm very akaliao with my pte instructor, so during lesson we used to smoke and have coffee in between lessons.
As according to my instructor weather you can pass or not depends on the TP tester. If you suay suay got the strict like hell tester than he will definitely find your slightest mistake and give you 20++ points. That's how I failed my 1st attempt.
I drove very swee, no mistake perfect in the circuit. So this tester took me outside. That's where pressure me like hell. Obviously I did well but because he wants to fail me, he told me that I failed to confirm safety, never see mirrors and lastly when I enter the SSDC right aboutt the junction he told me that I failed to look at my right side for incoming cars....Bull****! I curse to myself LOL. This tester KNN do not want to pass me....

Another tip from my instructor, especially for gals or women. Dress nice, put a bit of make up and the best dress sexy. Confirm you will pass.....wahahahahaha lol......
He told me a China gal no confident to drive also can pass. Show some legs and the tester happy liao.........lol wahahahahahahaha

does anyone knows how many times tp tester can deduct us for turning steering whilst vehicle is stationary for parallel?
Decided to check this out after realising that previously i always strike kurb when turning the wheel back to straight in parking. Maybe i should try another method this time.

Only one time they can deduct(2 pts)....U need to learn to go at a low speed,and always check your side mirror when reaching the kerb
