Driving can be very intimidating for people. Most people are not used to controlling a vehicle much larger than they are, and some people will truly understand what ‘blind spot’ means. There really are some blind spots when you drive, and cannot be seen without physically turning your head. This may scare certain beginner drivers in Singapore, especially because Singapore roads have lots of cars and bikes whizzing by on a daily basis..
Here are my best advice to help you learn driving effectively in Singapore.
First of all, I would recommend going for a private driving instructor instead. Do you believe in learning by starting small? I believe in going big, throwing a person into the deep end of the pool, and learn through struggling. The lessons taught and learnt is much faster. School students learn from the comfort and perceived ‘safety’ of the school circuits (albeit paying a bomb for public school driving lessons). Private driving students learn from the outside roads first, exposing beginner drivers to the toughest road conditions first. This means that a school student would generally find it easy to drive in the beginning part of his or her lessons, while a private driving student may find it more intimidating in the beginning. However, over time, it’s significantly easier to drive as a private driving student, because you’re already used to driving on ACTUAL roads.
Second of all, finding any private driving instructor does not mean you’re going to succeed at passing your driving test on the first try. There are good private driving instructors as well as bad ones. I highly recommend that you look for an agency like sglearntodrive.com is going to make your life much easier because they automatically match you up with a suitable and compatible private driving instructor instead of you searching through tons of unknown and unqualified driving instructors who may be bad.
