Apart from private driving lessons, learner drivers can take up lessons from driving instructors at the driving centers. There are three driving centers in Singapore – Singapore Safety Driving Center, Bukit Batok Driving Center, and the Ubi ComfortDelgro Driving Center.
It is an easy process to sign up for practical lessons at the driving centers. First of all, learner drivers have to head down to the driving centers to open an account with them. When an account has been made, learner drivers can register for practical lessons. Just a quick note – the driving centers are facing a huge demand for their driving lessons. It could take up to a month for learner drivers to book their next driving lessons.
Some common reasons why learner drivers want to learn from instructors at the driving centers include a systematic course structure, and the credible brand name. The driving instructors at the driving centers follow a strict course structure and every student will know exactly what they will learn in every lesson. This has a bad implication to it though – if learner drivers learn much faster than their average counterparts, they will still be forced to learn at the same rate as the others. No requests to speed up the lessons will be considered.
Last but not least, most people look at brand name when buying products and services these days. More recognized brands are trusted for their quality products and services. I believe some learner drivers choose the driving centers instead of private driving instructors because they are unsure whether the private driving instructors will be as good, given that there are not much information on private driving instructors on the internet.
