Good Parking Skills

Do you really, honestly think that you have truly good parking skills?

Are you sure? Really? Go back to learning driving… and go get more driving lessons by private driving instructors, because you’ve got nothing on these people ūüėõ

These videos of people driving very well and parking even better really amazes me, and yes I have a healthy obsession with parallel parking. That is because I think it is one of the hardest skills ever to learn for driving and the fact that there are people who do it with ease means that it is actually very possible to drive at that level of competence as well with enough hard work (because driving is not sports and you do not need talent Рyou just need superb hand eye coordination, fast reaction time and a willingness to work very hard.)

Moving on to driving lessons in Singapore Рthe main difference between private driving instructors can do and schools such as Comfort Delgro Driving Center at Ubi, Singapore Safety Driving Center at Woodlands or Bukit Batok Driving Center is that private driving instructors (who do not belong to any of those schools but are instead independent driving instructors) are able to fully cater their teaching to your learning speed and curve.

There are a few benefits to private driving instructors in Singapore which will potentially help you become more like the competent and expert drivers I constantly share with you on my blog.

– They are dedicated to you. Instead of driving schools where your teacher will be rotated around and you get different people teaching you each time, when it comes to private driving instructors, they will stick with you all the way until your Singapore driving test.

РYou will also be using the exact same car for your examinations, which means that you have one less variable to worry about to pass your driving test.

– They are definitely much more affordable in terms of their prices and so you would save quite a bit when you learn from them.

–¬†Singapore private driving instructors also have no minimum amount of driving lessons necessary before you can go for your examinations; this is unlike schools. Hence, you get to save even more money! How awesome is this!

In short, I simply love learning from private driving instructors as they are more affordable and teach students much better and give a higher chance at getting the Singapore driving license on the first attempt at the Traffic Police practical test.

Bad Parking

Now we are back once again  at people with poor driving skills (not really), but just take a quick look at the image below.

There are no lines on the roads for the parking lots and you can clearly see how bad their parking it.

Not that you can blame them since there are really no parking lines on the ground and it can get really difficult if there are no lines (this is evident even in Singapore so stop laughing). This is especially the case for car parks near sea side restaurants in Singapore such as Jumbo e.t.c.

What does that show? People are dumb? ūüėõ

I think they should get more driving test tips.

Do you want to know why? This is because although there are no parking lines, if you looked, the sides of the car park is actually straight and not curved or circular or some nonsense. This means that you simply need to be perpendicular to the sides of the car park. So it really amazes me beyond the wildest of my imaginations that there are still drivers who can park so horribly like that shown in the picture below.

funny parking

Then again, maybe this is the car park for the huge mansion sitting in the background of the image on the right.

However, nonetheless, it is still a good thing though that Singapore car parks almost always have parking lines, or I am sure, that even with the stringent checks before passing a driver on his or her test, Singapore drivers would still park like how the drivers in the picture on the right would. It is just human to do that.

Truck Parking?

I thought this video looked really cool since it’s of a TRUCK parking instead of the usual plain old cars parking. Yes, yes, yes, here is my fourth post on parking¬†and I may be getting a little obsessive about this but I think it’s one of the hardest driving skills to master (versus driving on a straight road) so I like to share about it.

But this is of a huge truck! I mean, this is potentially class 5 driving license parking and the driver in the following video performs it super well. (take note though for excited people who are looking to buy your next truck¬†–¬†although¬†the title of the video says Volvo truck driver, the truck does not belong to Volvo. This is a mistake made by the creator of the video)

However, ignore that and just watch his incredible driving skills. Incredible indeed. Respect LOL. I wondered how he practised though.

It really is pretty amazing, I believe he must have taken his driving lessons in Singapore as there are also some driving schools in Singapore which teach people how to drive cars as well as trucks (although of course, the costs and frequency of lessons and test elements would be vastly different).

A few things to note if you want to drive vehicles as large as that shown in the video below in Singapore:

– It should be considered a class 5 vehicle, and you need to first pass a class 3 typical car driving license in Singapore (you can take lessons from private driving instructors)

–¬†After you achieve pass on your Singapore driving test¬†and get your license, you will now need to take class 4 license at driving schools (Ubi, Bukit Batok, Woodlands) Class 4 vehicles are small trucks and mini buses

– After you pass that class 4 driving test in Singapore, then it is time to take on the big toys such as vehicles like the truck shown below (sometimes known as 18 wheeler in Singapore)

Michele’s Driving Skills

Just watch the following video. In my previous post, I talked about how parallel parking is difficult and in this following video a woman (surprise! lady driver) manages to do it with ease (and she is a regular person, not a stunt driver, which makes it all the more amazing).

Looking at the following driving video, I simply applaud Michele’s driving.

She probably had like the best private driving instructor LOL. Just kidding. Maybe she was talented.

Clearly, she listened well to her instructor and practised even more to get to this level of skill… I mean, I have parked in tight places and driven off easily and relatively quickly as well. But looking at the space in the video shown below, it is an entirely different ball game – it requires an extremely talented driver who has constant practice to achieve it. The best part of all is that even though¬†there are signals for parking in the car, it still is not easy – anybody with a driving license will tell you that too.

I guess she can go out there and challenge the world record I shared with you in my previous post. She is crazily good at driving!

Do you know that if you learn driving in Singapore,¬†the parallel parking test element will not even look close to anything like the above video? I am not referring only to the distance between the cars, but I am referring to the ‘obstacles’. In fact, when you take your Singapore driving test to get your license, you will only be trying to park your car in between two kerbs, one in front of your car and the other behind. It is really relatively¬†simple to pass your driving exam in Singapore.

Hardest Parallel Parking Ever!

Well if you know how to drive, or are a learner student in Singapore taking parallel parking driving lessons, you will certainly know how difficult parallel parking can be. In fact, it is arguably the hardest driving skill to master.

However, as with all things difficult, there will be people in the world to solve that with ease. As if parallel parking by itself was not hard enough, here comes the Guinness World Record to blow everyone away.

The following video of the Guinness World Records will amaze you with the guy’s phenomenal¬†driving skills. If he became a private driving instructor in Singapore, all the students he teach would pass the driving test on the first try – guaranteed.

If only everyone of us had 25% of his skills.

For those of you who are marveling at the above video or find it amazing – you do not know how hard it is still if you do not yet have a Singapore driving license.

A good place to learn this would be at Singapore as there are many top driving instructors in Singapore on top of having well qualified driving instructors (mainly because the Singapore Traffic Police have very stringent requirements for these instructors). Thus it is a great idea to get private driving instructors in Singapore.

In places such as at Ubi, Woodlands and Bukit Batok, there are a ton of experienced private driving instructors who teach new students who have not learnt driving before.

Even if you have learnt driving before, there are also refresher courses for those who wish to re-familiarize – as parallel parking is a tough skill for people to master even if they have a driving license already – I speak from personal experience.

Hence, if you have gotten your license a long time ago but finally got a car for yourself now, then go for Singapore refresher driving lessons.
