    It's part of the training, to train them to filter and change lane during heavy traffics.

    The different timings are to cater for different group of learners, if there is demand for that time slot, the instructors will teach. There are people who can only make during peak hours, not everyone hold 9-5 jobs

    Hahaha don't be so bad, we were all once a beginner. Likewise for me, just got license almost 2 years ago Instructor told me to book during peak hour period, so that I can learn how to filter during heavy traffic.

    That's why the L plate is there, it's supposed to remind other drivers to be patient.

    We all were learner drivers before.. And well, I don't think anyone really thought about "oh hey it's going to be morning rush and evening period, let's not learn driving now". Neither would it be tenable to say that people can't learn driving during rush hours, that's just nonsensical. Some non-learner drivers pass driving test already still drive very koyak, so...

    L-plate drivers are the same as medical students
    Take the shot!

    It's to give driving students the chance to learn to drive under those conditions.

    It's also a way to maximize usage of time to earn profits. If they shut down operations from 4pm to 8pm, there's a loss. Even though it might be small loss, a smaller profit margin still means a smaller profit margin
