Requirement
Max 30 bucks per hr
Don't chut stunt
Eg. Always cancel lesson. Very little time slot available. Waste your time which result in spending more than what is required. Always ask friend cover lesson.

DONT GET CHEATED BY DAVID TAY

Sometimes it's what you pay, what type of service you get.

Just to share my experience after switching to current instructor mr tay. Although he's rate is slightly higher than average, he is way way much patient and friendly. he does not make sarcastic remarks when you make repeated mistakes. You will be amazed the way he teaches you parking. din know got such simple and shortcut steps. within 1 - 2 lesson, can easily park the car with confidences!! my previous instructor only know how to say "ok..turn left.left ok. now right,..ok turn turn." wasted much more money even though per lesson cheaper...

contact him at 9456 9797 if you want to give it a try. SMS him better so you wont disrupt his ongoing lesson.
PLEASE DONT BELIEVE THE ABOVE. I TOOK DRIVING LESSONS FROM DAVID TAY TIANG CHONG AND THE POST ABOVE IS SO OBVIOUSLY WRITTEN BY HIMSELF. ON MY FIRST DAY HE ALREADY TOLD ME TO CHECK FORUMS TO SEE HOW GOOD HE IS, AND THIS IS THE ONLY ENTRY ON HIM.

ANYWAY, HE NOT ONLY DIDN'T TEACH ME NOTHING BUT DRIVING AROUND ON MAIN ROADS, NO CIRCUIT, ATTEMPT U-TURN TWICE, 3 POINT TURN TWICE, AND ONLY ONE CIRCUIT LESSON BEFORE YOUR TP TEST.

DURING LESSON, HE WILL BE ON THE PHONE, LISTENING TO HIS KARAOKE, AND I JUST FAILED TODAY NOT BECAUSE I COULDNT PARK OR DRIVE, BUT BECAUSE HE DIDN'T TEACH ME THE BASIC THINGS LIKE CHECKING BLIND SPOT WHEN MAKING LEFT OR RIGHT TURNS OR EVEN BRAKING.

HE CHARGES THE SAME EVEN WHEN YOU ARE LATE AND ENDS ON TIME. BUT HE GOES FOR 20 MIN TOILET BREAK. THIS BREAK WILL INCLUDE RINSING HIS MOUTH, EATING HIS FOOD OUTSIDE HIS CAR, AND TONGUE CLEANING. NOT ONCE. NOT TWICE. BUT EVERY SINGLE LESSON. HE WILL TAKE A 10 - 20 MINUTE TOILET BREAK. OF COURSE HE DIDNT PRO RATE MY FEES TO 40MIN. WHAT A DOG.

ALTOGETHER, HE CHARGE $54 FOR ONLY ONE HOUR AND MADE ME DRIVE-ONLY FOR 29 LESSONS. OF WHICH, HE DIDN'T EVEN TAKE ME TO THE CIRCUIT. OR LEARN THINGS LIKE U-TURN OR 3 POINT TURNS.

I CREATED THIS ACCOUNT JUST TO WARN EVEYRONE NOT TO WASTE YOUR MONEY. HE DOES NOT WANT YOU TO PASS, BUT TO FAIL AND RETAKE MORE LESSONS WITH HIM.

I CHECKED WITH OTHERS, PRIVATE INSTRUCTORS NOT ONLY CHARGE MUCH LESS FOR 1.5 HOURS, BUT THEY TAKE ONLY 10 LESSONS BEFORE THEIR PRACTICAL TEST. AND THE CHERRY TO TOP IT ALL OFF IS THAT HIS PASSING RATE IS ONLY 21% WHICH I NEVER QUESTIONED UNTIL TODAY.

PLEASE DON'T LEARN FROM THIS DAVID TAY SGC 8471 TOYOTA VIOS SILVER

I remember searching through this thread just a few months ago looking for a good auto driving instructor at CDC. There were quite a few recommended manual ones but no auto. So I thought I should recommend a good auto instructor since I passed my TP on my first try after 18 lessons

My instructor is called Tommy, CDC, auto.

He speaks both Chinese and English, which is good for me cause honestly my chinese cmi. He's really very patient and doesn't scold. The only time he scolded me was the lesson just before my TP as I really did quite a few stupid mistakes la. But other than that he's friendly, and can the kind that can talk cock with. He's super punctual and won't take long toilet breaks! In fact he rarely takes toilet breaks haha.

I personally think I'm a slow learner so the mere fact that I can pass the first time only after 18 lessons under him is that he's pretty good la. So thought come and share lobang with those looking for a good auto instructor.

Rates are $32 an hour, same for peak and non-peak.
$50 enrollment fee

Contact is --> Tommy, 94566688
