How To Drive And Park Your Car Properly

Parking may be one of the hardest things. In fact, I used to think that parking is peanuts. That driving would be harder – I was wrong. When you’re driving, it’s easy to move and steer intuitively to a great extent. However, when it comes to parking, other cars or obstacles are close to you and there is no room for error or to correct your mistake even though you’re moving at slow speed.

However, it is easy when you listen to the above video and assimilate the above driving lessons with the tips dished out to you by your driving instructor in Singapore.

One tip though: When you learn driving, your driving instructor usually gives you very mechanical steps for parking such as turning 3 times to the left then turning 2 times to the right and e.t.c. The driving instructor will also tell you to adjust your sideview mirror to park the car properly. In reality, however, you do not do that and depend more on intuition (though this is after you get the basic mechanics down) and you also do not constantly adjust your side view mirror. That’s the key difference and was initially one of the hardest points for me to get used to when I first drove after I got my SIngapore driving license.

If you want to learn more about driving, then get your lessons from private driving instructors – they are cheaper and equally professional. Why not right?

Convert Your Driving License To Singapore.

So you have a foreign legitimate driving license but you would like to convert it into a Singapore driving license so as to drive on the roads of Singapore? There are certain steps you need to take (if you are learning from private driving instructors Singapore).

I decided to write this post because I realized quite a lot of foreigners do not know how to do so.

1) Go down to Ubi, Bukit Batok or Admiralty’s driving school.

2) Go to the Traffic Police department within.

3) Ask for application for conversion of license. You will then need to go through BTT, apply for PDL and go for FTT. Then you will apply for final practical exam – pass it and you finally will get your coveted Singapore driver’s license!

Okay, perhaps that sounded too general – here’s the breakdown.

BTT basically stands for basic theory test and it’s a simple theory test on the road signs shown in Singapore and the quiz has 50 questions out of which you need to get 45 correct to pass.

FTT stands for final theory test and the quiz format is similar to BTT. It is however more heavy on application of driving, such as how to parallel park e.t.c.

PDL is provisional driving license, which is the license that grants you the right to learn driving on the roads from certified driving instructors.
