sylvaz - I passed on 3rd attempt. Actually from personal and other people's experience, a huge part really depends on which tester you get. Skill, technique and attitude are absolutely compulsory factors, together with being calm, confident, yet humble. But ultimately, the tester makes a big difference. I guess I'm trying to say, luck plays an important role too.
Seems like you need more practice. You have to psycho yourself into being confident and good too. Mind over matter. Strict instructors are okay lah. For me, I 'eat soft don't need hard' heheh, so I cannot tahan instructors who scold and yell. I respond better to instructors who are calm and more 'coach'-like, able to inspire you and explain clearly. But some people respond better to the scolding type. Heheh. One man's meat is another man's poison, I suppose.
It's understandable to be kan cheong. But try not to let it overwhelm you. Focus on your driving and stay calm!
Good luck and hope you pass. Receiving that official driving license in the mail was really an incredible feeling! Hope it happens for you too.
It's good if instructor scolds ya. At least he is correcting your mistake than those who just keep quiet or bo chup. Also good experience driving during peak hour so you will be trained not be gan jiong when there are many cars around and cutting into your lane.
My instructor used to keep talking to me for the duration and he expects me to join in the conversation. It's beneficial to me as he mastered me to be more focused while driving haha
Different approaches work on different people ba. My previous instructor didn't just scold. He actually yelled. All the time. Firing him and finding my instructor was the best thing I ever did for my driving. Heheh.
I do self study for the basic theory. Do you encourage to take lessons, i heard the test is tricky. A friend took 3 times in order to pass, so i am puzzled. Looking at the booklet, it seem easy but i keep my fingers crossed.
lynette u can try try self study 1st if u wan...its easy from booklet..haha but tricky lo.. but lesson from sch they have sort of like 10 years series type...got ans n ques.. very very similar to test .sch student have a fast test date..pte must wait..some pte student take 1 time past also..haha depend on luck also la..
lynette, i wld suppose u're a private student jus like me. i passed de basic theory on 2nd attempt. Maybe you can try to book at least 2 etrials at the driving centre before your theory test date. 1 shld be de day before. ten bucks per etrial. yeap..
my fh made me do that for my final theory cuz i already failed final theory 5 times. LOL!! finally passed on the 6th attempt.
hmm seems like alot of ppl pass only on their 3rd attempt. those passed at 1st or 2nd attempt must be either drive illegally before, or they're natural-borned drivers. hopefully can pass my practical before ssdc moves to woodlands on april X__X
femme, so how you felt when you failed on your 1st attempt? must be so sian right! so disheartening.. i remember failing my final theory twice and already felt so upset about it.. can't imagine failing practical.. impact would be stronger
omg! i don't know why i'm feeling so excited after reading this..
anw, i got my FTT abt 6 months ago? and i haven't started on my practical lessons! my bf totally gave up on trying to get my lazy bum started on learning so, new year is coming and i determined to finish it asap!
hmmm... so.. i'm kinda looking towards Auto learning (bitterly convinced by my bf tt it is faster and easier)... however, i'm still a student so kinda need to find a reasonably priced tutor who is good. (not necessarily cheap because Sometimes quality and price do link right?
given the rough thread market rate, what should be a reasonable price for a reasonably good tutor? Btw, i live around thomson and sch's at clementi so super duper willing to travel within radius!!!
