Economic theory has it that competition on the market translates to more options and better prices for consumers. While this is true on a macro level, as the consumer, having way too many choices can certainly be a headache. The internet is a good place to begin to do some research prior to deciding to a buying decision. Over here, we hope to present you with as much information as we can to assist you with your research as well as to have you onboard as our customer. We aim 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 (BTT) is the first step in getting your driving license in Singapore. Specifically we are talking about motor cars Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA. Check out the Singapore Traffic Police website for more information.
Note: Class 3C / Class 3CA are new licenses issued by the Traffic Police effective 1st June 2015.
For making 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 in terms of the requirements of the type of Class 3 license you’re taking.
Regardless if you are opting for Manual or Auto (Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA licenses), the Basic Theory Test (Exam) is held in different driving schools.
Note: You may sign up as a school student for your basic theory test at CDC even though you intend to work with private driving instructors later. Actually we advise you to sign up with the school when you’re getting ready for your Basic Theory Test.
Being a student, you will be able take more mock (simulated) basic theory test tests 2-3 hours prior to 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 recommend 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 have 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.
Once you clear your BTT Test (you will get your results right away with a print out), your Basic Theory Test “Pass Results” stays with you for life.
This implies, you are able to go on to do the next 2 steps (together if you prefer)
1. Get a Provisional Driving License (PDL) – this allows 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.
