Economic theory has it that competition in the market leads to more options and lower prices for consumers. While this is true on a macro level, being the consumer, having too many choices can be quite a headache. The internet is a great starting place to do some studies prior to deciding to a decision. Right here, we hope to offer you just as much information as possible to assist you with your research as well as to have you on board as our customer. We make sure to be as informative as possible and hopefully with information, you will be empowered to jump on board as our customer.
Passing your Basic Theory Test is the first step in getting your driving license in Singapore.
Specifically we are speaking about motor cars Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA.
Note: Class 3C / Class 3CA are new licenses issued by the Traffic Police effective 1st June 2015.
In order to make things simpler, regardless of any type of Class 3 you will need to clear your Basic Theory Test and Final Theory Test thought your Practical Driving Test differs in terms of the requirements of the type of Class 3 license you are taking.
Regardless if you are opting for Manual or Auto (Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA licenses), the Basic Theory Test is held in different driving schools.
Note: You may enroll as a school student for your basic theory test at CDC even though you intend to work with private driving instructors later. Actually we recommend you to enroll with the school if you are preparing for your Basic Theory Test.
As a student, you will be able take more mock (simulated) basic theory test tests 2-3 hours prior to the actual exam. This will greatly assist you in clearing your Basic Theory Test.
What to cover / learn in Basic Theory Test / Exam?
We strongly recommend you buy the Basic Theory of Driving – The Official Handbook from the school ( it comes as a package with the Final Theory Test handbook) when you book for your Basic Theory Test.
Introduction to driving (in Singapore), different classes of driving licenses
Singapore Road Signs and Signals (you literally have to memories all these)
Singapore Traffic Rules and Regulations (again just pure memorization)
Code of Conduct on the road
Parts and Control of A Car (Basic)
And other nitty gritty details which we will not cover here.
As soon as you clear your Basic Theory Test (you’re going to get your results right away with a print out), your Basic Theory Test “Pass Results” stays with you for a lifetime.
This suggests, you can actually proceed to do the next 2 steps (together if you wish)
1. Receive a Provisional Driving License (PDL) – this allows you to learn practical lessons on the roads with a certified driving instructor. Without this PDL, you can’t book for your driving lessons
2. Book your Final Theory Test date. You definitely have to clear your Basic Theory Test Date before booking for your Final Theory Test Date.
