Passing your Basic Theory Test is the first step in getting your driving license in Singapore. Specifically we are speaking about motor cars Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA. Please check out Singapore Traffic Police for more information.
Note: Class 3C / Class 3CA are new licenses issued by the Traffic Police effective 1st June 2015.
In order to make things simpler, regardless of any type of Class 3 you’ll have to clear your Basic Theory Test and Final Theory Test thought your Practical Driving Test differs with regards to the requirements of the type of Class 3 license you’re taking.
Whether you are going for Manual or Auto (Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA licenses), the Basic Theory Test (Exam) is held in different driving schools.
Note: You can actually register as a school student for your basic theory test at CDC even though you intend to work with private driving instructors later. The fact is we suggest you to sign up with the school if you are preparing for your Basic Theory Test.
Being a student, you will be able take more mock (simulated) basic theory test tests 2-3 hours before the actual exam. This certainly will greatly assist you in clearing your Basic Theory Test.
What to cover / learn in Basic Theory Test / Exam?
We highly recommend you purchase the Basic Theory of Driving – The Official Handbook from the school ( it comes as a package with the Final Theory Test handbook) when you book for your Basic Theory Test.
Introduction to driving (in Singapore), different classes of driving licenses
Singapore Road Signs and Signals (you literally really should try to memorise all these)
Singapore Traffic Rules and Regulations (again just pure memorisation)
Code of Conduct on the road
Parts and Control of A Car (Basic)
And other nitty gritty details which we will not cover here.
Once you clear your Basic Theory Test (you will receive your results immediately with a print out), your Basic Theory Test “Pass Results” stays with you for a lifetime.
This suggests, you are able to proceed to do the next 2 steps (together if you prefer)
1. Get a Provisional Driving License (PDL) – this allows you to learn practical lessons on the roads with a certified driving instructor. Without the PDL, you cannot book for your driving lessons
2. Book your Final Theory Test date. You definitely need to clear your Basic Theory Test Date before booking for your Final Theory Test Date.
