Economic theory has it that competition on the market results in more options and lower prices for consumers. While this is true on a macro level, as the consumer, having lots of choices can certainly be a headache. The internet is a excellent place to begin for you to do some studies before making a decision. Right here, we hope to offer you just as much information as we can to help you with your research as well as to have you onboard as our customer. We make sure to be as informative as it can be and hopefully with information, you’ll be empowered to jump onboard as our customer.
Passing your Basic Theory Test is the first step in getting your driving license in Singapore.
Specifically we are talking 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.
To make things simpler, regardless of any type of Class 3 you’ll have to clear your Basic Theory Test and Final Theory Test thought your Practical Driving Test differs with regards to 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 (Exam) is held in various driving schools.
Note: You can actually sign up as a school student for your basic theory test at CDC even if you intend to work with private driving instructors later. Actually we recommend you to enroll with the school when you are preparing for your Basic Theory Test.
Being a student, you can take more mock (simulated) basic theory test tests 2-3 hours before the actual exam. This certainly will greatly assist you in clearing your Basic Theory Test.
What to cover / learn in Basic Theory Test / Exam?
We strongly suggest you purchase 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 should memorise all these)
Singapore Traffic Rules and Regulations (again just pure memorisation)
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 will receive your results immediately with a print out), your Basic Theory Test “Pass Results” stays with you for life.
This implies, you are able to proceed to do the next 2 steps (together if you prefer)
1. Receive a Provisional Driving License (PDL) – this enables you to learn practical lessons on the roads with a certified driving instructor. Without this PDL, you are unable to book for your driving lessons
2. Book your Final Theory Test date. You certainly need to clear your Basic Theory Test Date before booking for your Final Theory Test Date.
