Convert Malaysia license to Singapore license

Dear all fellow drivers, (esp Malaysian who live in Singapore)

Am about to convert my Malaysian driving license to Singapore one, according to this website:

http://sgcgo.com/driving-license-conversion/

I will need to sit for the Basic Theory Test, upon passing the test, I need a letter from JPJ in order to proceed with the license application.

So my doubt is, what kind of letter is it? If I go to JPJ what should I tell the officer over there? Beside, must I go to the JPJ where I got my license or any JPJ will do?
Thank you very much!

Ask the JPJ for the salinan rekod lesen memandu. Anyway, I'm sure the JPJ people know what to do. Don't think you'll be the first that they are doing this for.

Never tried asking this from another JPJ. To be on the safe side, get from your own JPJ (their database may be f**ked up)

But I know different states behave differently. Some will tell you that your license will be blacklisted. Others, will tell you that you can have both license at the same time.. =/

Yes, you will still be able to keep your Malaysian driving license. Just remember to renew it.

I personally know someone who successfully convert their MY to SG class 3. From what I know, you must have stayed at msia for at least 6mths (can't remember is 6mths or 1yr) from msia license date of issue. ie you are not working/studying at SG during this period.

Got a m'sian friend while studying in NUS, got her license in msia. She is not able to convert to SG license because of above reason. Meaning she need to take driving lesson & pass in SG in order to get SG license. (btw cost of getting license is many times cheaper over there compare to SG)

You must get your msia license before you come to SG to work or study. Your friend study in NUS first then got her msia license, so cannot convert anymore.

hi bros, need some advise here.

My wife is trying to convert her malaysian driving license to SG one. She got her license in year 2005. She got her Singapore PR in year 2006. Understand that Malaysian law requires 2 years of probation (P-plated) before they are granted full fledged license.

In this case, are they still considered having obtained the license before obtaining the SG PR? She has obtained the license extract from her hometown's JPJ, and the driving license's "year of issue" is stated as 2008 (approx 2.5 years after her date of passing the driving test).

SG govt all look at black and white not like bolehland. Have your wife actually stayed more than 6 months after the 2008 year of issue? If not chances are she have to retake her driving test here. Not a difficult feat if you already know how to drive.

JPJ don't allow Msian to hold Msia Driving License if you ve converted to SG License.

but dont worry, you can drive in Msia with your SG license.

and SG driving license is lifetime unless kena revoked. ( no need to renew )

edit : found this in sgcarmart

Dimaklumkan bahawa mengikut Seksyen 27(6) Akta pengangkutan Jalan (APJ) 1987 membawa maksud hanya satu (1) lesen memandu sahaja samada lesen memandu Malaysia atau Singapura boleh dipegang pada satu-satu masa oleh warganegara Malaysia atau Singapura. Oleh yang demikian, tuan boleh menggunakan lesen memandu Singapura apabila memandu di Malaysia dengan syarat lesen memandu Singapura masih sah berkuatkuasa dan sama taraf kelas dengannya.

Sekian terima kasih.
