There are a lot of questions that are being asked on Singapore driving instructors. Many of them are constantly repeated by learner drivers. In order to provide future learner drivers a better understanding on the Singapore driving instructors, I have decided to come up with this post to deal with the frequently asked questions. They are as follows:
Question 1: Are there different types of driving instructors in Singapore?
Answer: Yes, there are. In fact, there are two types of driving instructors in Singapore – local private driving instructor in Singapore and the driving instructors from the Singapore driving centers. The former will be private coaching while the latter is the standard school coaching.
Question 2: Will I be assigned to one or many driving instructors?
Answer: If you choose to learn from private driving instructors in Singapore, you will be assigned to just one driving instructor to coach you for all lessons. On the other hand, if you choose to learn from driving instructors in driving centers, you will be assigned to different driving instructors for each lesson. No particular driving instructor in driving center will be assigned to you for all lessons.
Question 3: How do I book my lessons with the driving instructors?
Answer: For private learner drivers, you can arrange your next driving lessons with the instructor face-to-face after each lesson. Alternatively, you can call the driving instructor anytime during working hours to arrange your future driving lessons with him. For school learner drivers, you can log into the driving centers’ websites and book your next driving lesson through their scheduling system.
Question 4: How old are the driving instructors?
Answer: Private driving instructors are generally at least 50 years old while school driving instructors can be as young as in their 20s. This is because the license for private driving instructors had stopped issue since decades ago. The private driving instructors who stayed in the industry were all aged and experienced instructors.
Question 5: How long are each driving lessons?
Answer: For private learner drivers, the duration of each driving lesson is flexible (i.e. it is entirely up to you, as long as the duration is minimally 1 hour). As for the school learner drivers, the duration of each driving lesson is fixed at 100 minutes by the driving centers.
