    Time is not a problem for me as I'm still a student now. Have about 2 years to afford before going into NS.

    oh btw, do you all recommend getting the license before enter NS or after NS?

    My advice is to see what vocation u get in NS before deciding. If u end up in a combat unit driving a scout vehicle or become a motor transport officer, then u will be getting a military driving licence which can be converted into a Class3 driving license when u leave the army.

    However, it all depends on u right now given that u have 2 years to spare before enrolment.

    I would not encourage one to hope to be a driver during NS... Of course, the end result is that you get a civilian licence. But being a driver during the one of the toughest vocation. Long hours driving is not health.. and it is one the most easy way to go into DB... Whether the driver is right or wrong, anything happened to the vehicle you drive, you will end up inside.. whether 1 day or 7 days...Trust me... not worth the try...

    DB = Detention Barracks. Also called Kranji Detention Barracks. The SAF equivalent of Changi Prison. There, they shave your head and make u do very shiong physical exercise. Guaranteed fitter than commando after the stay.

    Y not? just go to the driving centres and register as a member n start booking ur lessons to start...

    Tentatively, u can wait till u get ur basic theory test results and den start with a private instructor.
