Of course, I have to signed up as BBDC member before I can do anything. If that is what you meant..

Just few bucks to joined BBDC , can't remember how much but you can check online. Definitely less than $20-$30 . Afterwhich I got to top up the account given where i shall book the BTT,FTT & TP lor.

Usually, TP booked by PDI... But as I mentioned I just dumped my PDI & wanna get an earlier date....That's why I booked it myself this round.

Just Pass yesterday PDI BBDC
Class 3
Mr Phang
Hp 94789236/82869031
CCK Area
Registration 50
Rate 28/30

Throughout my learning experience, he did not take any toilet break or charge unreasonably.
Sometimes he might be late for 10min, but he will add in the time he wasted.
And 1st lesson he won't be teaching you driving, but give you orientation.

During lesson, he might receive some call from student, and he will answer their question and hang up asap.
Your PDI Good sia!
Not like Tay Tiang Chong, charge so much.. Student learn so little.. Sleep in the car, talking on the phone non stop. Go for toilet breaks each lesson.. Take student time to buy food.. Prolong lesson so he can earn more $$$ from students. He late for lessons he never pay back.. We late we never ask him to extend..

Guys beware of this David Tay Tiang Chong. Toyota vios.
Its for your own good.

Yes i had the same problem with Mr Lim also. Keep on asking him for circuit he say only slot available is at 10pm when i did let him know a few weeks before that my tp test is coming. How can be no slot a few weeks in advance? The reason is i think all his instructors can't enter BBDC circuit as they are not BBDC instructor members. I know 2 of them are only allowed to teach on the road but not BBDC circuit. Also he keep on assigning different instuctors and cars for us to practise. Keep on asking us to book lesson on the road but no circuit and like to cut short lessons abruptly from 2 hours to 1.5 hours (happen multiple times).

From the day I start learning to the day I passed, slightly less than 6 months. Took lessons once a week.

First lesson is $50[Registration] + $42[Non-peak] = $92

First lesson he will ask you bring $200 is like a balance for your "account"

meaning, you top-up ur account $200, and when you attend your lesson,
he subsequently delete your lesson fee from the balance.

Meaning after 1st lesson and your top-up.
$200-92=$108

you still can book probably 3 lesson.

Although the amount of balance does not determine the amount of lesson you
can book in advance, but it is better to keep a certain amount in the "account".

His car is a nissan sunny.
