Some say it's cheaper to get pte ones but some say that pte ones more difficult to pass at the test, got to depend on the relationship between the instructor & the test centre. :dunno: Got mine from SAF (the gov't). :lovegrin:

as per title..anyone has any good private driving schools with high passing rate to recommend? i stay in the east so east side schools are preferred.
I'm using Cathay (Bedok Interchange)

you can take a look there. Btw, they are refusing to allow new instructors to teach privately anymore... Only the old-timers are still allowed to. Once these fellas pass on (or get too old to teach), everyone WILL have to learn at the driving schools.

swee...
i got my driving license there also exactly one year ago.
my driving instructor is Mr Lim iirc.
fierce looking old man he is but he's good.
i remembered my first lesson, he ask me to drive back to the shop from a carpark at Bedok South.
the furthest i drove with him was to sembawang beach. (we stopped at the round about for a while and den he point to me the buildings across the sea and say, "Over there is Malaysia."

i highly recommend him if you are attending there and if he's still instructing.

Oh good! My dad might be able to teach me personally.
But mystery last minute assignments prevent me from booking time slots for exams. :(
Your dad may not be able to allow you to drive on the roads though... unless he's a qualified instructor with the valid license.

when you sign up as a student there, they will help you to book the test date.
dun need to worry about queuing up at the Comfort Driving Centre to book your test date.
when you register, you need to pay a registration fee and car usage fee.
the first payment will break your wallet.
overall, i spent less than $1k to getting my license.
