Economic theory has it that competition in the market translates to more options and better prices for consumers. While this is true on a macro level, being the consumer, having way too many choices can be quite a headache. The internet is a great place to start to do some research before you make a buying decision. Right here, we hope to present you with just as much information as possible to assist you with your research as well as to have you on board as our customer. We endeavor to be as informative as it can be and hopefully with information, you’ll 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 talking about motor cars Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA. You may refer to Singapore Traffic Police website for more details.
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 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’re taking.
Whether you are opting for Manual or Auto (Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA licenses), the Basic Theory Test (Exam) takes place in various driving schools.
Note: You may enroll as a school student for your basic theory test at CDC even though you plan to work with private driving instructors later. In fact we suggest you to join with the school when you are preparing for your Basic Theory Test.
As a student, you can take more mock (simulated) basic theory test tests 2-3 hours before the actual exam. This will greatly help 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 really should try to 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 straight away with a print out), your Basic Theory Test “Pass Results” stays with you for a lifetime.
This suggests, you can go on to do the next 2 steps (together if you want)
1. Receive a Provisional Driving License (PDL) – this allows you to learn practical lessons on the roads with a certified driving instructor. Without the PDL, you cannot 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.
