Passing your Basic Theory Test is the first step in getting your driving license in Singapore. Specifically we are talking about motor cars Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA. Note: Class 3C / Class 3CA are new licenses issued by the Traffic Police effective 1st June 2015. Please visit Singapore Traffic Police website for more information.
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 in terms of the requirements of the type of Class 3 license you are taking.
Regardless if you are opting for Manual or Auto (Class 3 / 3A / 3C / 3CA licenses), the Basic Theory Test (Exam) takes place in various driving schools.
Note: You can register as a school student for your basic theory test at CDC even if you prefer to work with private driving instructors later. In fact we suggest you to sign up with the school when you’re preparing for your Basic Theory Test.
Being a student, you’ll be able to take more mock (simulated) basic theory test tests 2-3 hours prior to the actual exam. This will greatly assist you in clearing your Basic Theory Test.
What to cover / learn in Basic Theory Test / Exam?
We strongly 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.
Areas:Introduction to driving (in Singapore), different classes of driving licenses
Singapore Road Signs and Signals (you literally need 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.
After you clear your Basic Theory Test (you will get your results straight away with a print out), your Basic Theory Test “Pass Results” stays with you for a lifetime.
This means, you can actually go on to do the next 2 steps (together if you want)
1. Receive a Provisional Driving License (PDL) – this enables you to learn practical lessons on the roads with a certified driving instructor. Without this PDL, you cannot book for your driving lessons
2. Book your Final Theory Test date. You certainly need to clear your Basic Theory Test Date before booking for your Final Theory Test Date.
