    basic -- 1 or 2X
    Advance -- lost count
    Test - 3X

    1st - everything is fine until I drove the car back to the centre. U-turn that time, hit the curve... stright F
    2nd -- too sian.. anyhow drive.. so fail again
    3rd -- drive ok... but in the end.. still too many pt. tester say.. i didn't look out this, look out that. Then he look into my book and say.. u've book alot of lesson liao.. then I took him, yeap!.. I even engage private to teach me.
    Then he say.. ok.. he reduce my pt to just pass. Tell me... for the beginning... make sure u got a licence driver sit beside you.
    That's easy... ok ..lor...
    That's how I pass

    BTW, he took out a voucher ask me to buy... so.. i took $6 to buy 3 tickets..

    Stay calm, chew a mentos. Just do what you always did during practical. Don't look flustered, be confident, don't memorise routes.

    If a lousy CMI person like me can pass first time, damn sure all of you can

    I took private lessons...

    Basic: Once
    Advanced: 4X
    Practical: Once (Kg Ubi, 8pts!)

    Overall, I spent less than 1k on all my lessons and test fees.

    Is the dreaded Route 6 still the same at Kg Ubi?

    If the driving testers are beautiful, many people want to fail many times.

    passed during the 2nd pratical attempt 2 yrs ago.

    took the advance theory twice. 1st time go in testroom without memorising or read anything. 2nd time go sit in the room for the whole day n practice.

    1st time took the driving test fail at the slope part... i tink i sit too far away from the pedals then took some time to extend my foot but tat time the car going backwards liao ..forget how many metres liao . I stopped the car at the slope.. he look me, i look him then he shook head ..haha.... instant failure if im rite but tester still let me go out drive....outside sui sui no problem.. but too late.

    2nd time everything sui sui no problem..passed with 9-11 points if i still can remember la. cant really remember also..Btw, the testers tested me on both occasions .

    Anyway has been 2 yrs since i drive. Haizz, how to afford a car in SG ar?

    Passed on my first attempt for all . 12 points for practical.
    My instructor's most frequent comment was "Slow down slow down, you're only L plate, cannot go faster than 50kmh". I think the stress of being a driving instructor got to him. He passed away about 2 years ago from heart attack.

    First time: Got yelled with vulgarities from my instructor just right b4 the test, with my mind lost, 3 immediate failure in circuit. Tester still let me go out for a spin. Stoped driving lessons completely. Tt's when i was 17.

    Second time: 7 years later, took again. thought was the usual 6 mths wait for TP so took my time, only to find out the first time still counted and this would be my second time so it was cut down to 4 mths. 1 week b4 test, my instructor made a boo boo, he booked 2 students at the same time for test, so he transfered me over to his friend....

    Test day: Skinny tall, dark TP tester with bad attitude and ray ban sunglass...nvr uttered a single word from start to finish, except when he whispered 'turn right' along the way, out of courtesy to make sure, I asked 'turn right, sir?'. He yelled, "I SAID TURN RIGHT"..I kept silence. Back at the UBI, he started to take out the paper and ticking...in my mind I already knew I fail. He passed it to me and just say ' go counter 13' and left, I did'nt even thank him or look at the paper.

    Got out and my instructor asked me how? I said 'I think i have to rebook at counter 13', he said: " Congrats, that's wheere u get your license'. I got 5 points

    hope it's an interesting experience to share with CSers....
    I lup SG, but SG don't love me...
