Important to note the following:


  • If you have any serious traffic offences pending against you, please don't apply for a licence. If a court eventually disqualifies you from holding or obtaining a driving licence, the disqualification could be for all driving licence classes, including any newly acquired licence.
  • If you have been awarded more than 12 demerit points or have cases pending against you which will make you liable to be awarded a total of more than 12 demerit points, you will not be allowed to take a practical driving test.
  • New driver who has two cases of not displaying a distinguishing mark (triangular sign) against them, whether the cases are concluded or otherwise, will not be allowed to take a  practical driving test.
  • For conversion cases, if you have been issued a new identification number (from FIN to NRIC) before or after you have booked a test date, you are required to update the changes with the Traffic Police Testing Section and the driving school before the test date. Otherwise, you will be disqualified from taking your test.


The classroom theory lessons are conducted in English and Mandarin. 


Booking of Theory and Practical lessons is available only at the Customer Service Centre.
