Economic theory has it that competition in the market translates to more options and lower prices for consumers. While this is true on a macro level, as being the consumer, having way too many choices can certainly be a headache. The internet is a excellent kick off point for you to do some studies before you make a decision. Over here, we hope to give you as much information as possible 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 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 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 are taking.
No matter if you’re going for Manual or Auto (Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA licenses), the Basic Theory Test (Exam) is held in various driving schools.
Note: You can enroll as a school student for your basic theory test at CDC even though you wish to work with private driving instructors later. Actually we suggest you to sign up with the school when you are preparing for your Basic Theory Test.
Being a student, you’ll be able to take more mock (simulated) basic theory test tests 2-3 hours before the actual exam. This will greatly assist you in clearing your Basic Theory Test.
What to cover / learn in Basic Theory Test / Exam?
We highly 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 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.
After you clear your Basic Theory Test (you will get your results on the spot with a print out), your Basic Theory Test “Pass Results” stays with you for life.
This means, you can go on to do the next 2 steps (together if you want)
1. Obtain 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 BTT Test Date before booking for your Final Theory Test Date.
After working on the Basic Theory Test (BTT) and Final Theory Test (FTT) for few months, we are proud with what we’ve put together and confident that we provides you with the most accurate information.
