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 too many choices can be a headache. The internet is a great place to begin to perform some studies before making a buying decision. Over here, we hope to offer you 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 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. Refer to Singapore Traffic Police website for more information.
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.
No matter if you’re 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 if you prefer to work with private driving instructors later. Actually we suggest you to sign up with the school if you are getting ready for your Basic Theory Test.
Being a student, you can actually take more mock (simulated) basic theory test tests 2-3 hours prior to the actual exam. This certainly will greatly help you in clearing your Basic Theory Test.
What to cover / learn in Basic Theory Test / Exam?
We encourage 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.
After you clear your Basic Theory Test (you’re going to get your results on the spot with a print out), your Basic Theory Test “Pass Results” stays with you for a lifetime.
This implies, you can actually proceed to do the next 2 steps (together if you want)
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 definitely need to clear your Basic Theory Test Date before booking for your Final Theory Test Date.
