Good Mentor Good Student

If you want to learn anything, it is always better to find a good mentor to teach you. There is a saying that goes, “a good mentor will produce good students”.

And the above mentioned quote is especially true when it comes to driving skills and learning to drive. If you want to possess a set of amazing and competent driving techniques and improve your driving skills greatly and quickly in a short period of time you will need to find someone who is or has been a good professional racer, and who is able to teach well. This is because not everyone who can perform really well can teach well. I know this sounds odd but this is the case in driving. Some people are meant to teach while others are meant to simply perform. So you want to find someone who can teach really well and is competent as well.

In fact, if you are considering to learn from Singapore driving instructors, I highly recommend you consider finding a Singaporean private driving instructor instead of school drivers. Those are young people with not much experience – whereas private driving instructors in Singapore have at least 25 years of teaching experience ( because the Singapore traffic police stopped giving out driving instructor licenses since the 1980s and so the instructors who are remaining are very experienced and love what they are doing).

Do you want to learn from someone who just passed driving not too many years ago or would you rather learn from a pool of dedicated and super experienced drivers as well as private driving instructors?

What is more than that, is that these private driving instructors in Singapore are also much cheaper in terms of the rate that they charge per hour or per lesson for their driving lessons than schools. Is that awesome? Yes! In fact, you get a more experienced person teaching you for less – what kind of a no brainer question is this?

if you want to learn driving in Singapore today with an affordable budget and experienced tutors, then you definitely NEED and MUST at all costs sign up with a Singapore private driving instructor instead!

Practice your driving consistently

So you have pass Singapore driving test already? Congrats! But that does not mean that you are necessarily a good driver on the road.

There are many (even experienced) drivers on the roads in Singapore who are clearly incompetent of driving under stress (e.g. when you see heavy traffic conditions or other cars being in extremely close proximity to you).

When you get your driving license in Singapore, it merely proves that you are able to meet the basic requirements to drive on the road. You are still a rookie driver. Do not get too carried out with this driving license as you will still need to polish up your driving skills and improve more and more till you are really a good driver on the road.

So this means that if you have access to a car, make sure to drive it at least once in a while so that you will still stay in the game when it comes to driving and be competent.

Additionally, there are several things that you will feel is ‘scary’ when you first drive by yourself on real roads – the main thing would be parking in narrow spaces. Even for perpendicular parking, some drivers start to panic (because if you learnt from a private driving instructor in Singapore, he or she would usually have instructed you to turn the side view mirror down to see the kerb e.t.c. but this is not the case in real life as there is no time for such things) and just fail to park into the parking space despite many attempts. Do you see the trouble now? I do. Hence you need constant practice and just overcome your fear – it is only in your mind.

With practice comes the skills. Do not get rusty with your driving due to very long period of not driving a car on the roads – be it a manual or auto transmission car. Consistency is the key to competent and safe driving on the roads of Singapore.
