Aceing your Final Theory Test in Singapore

At the point of penning this (December 2014), I’ve just cleared my Final Theory Test last month and I am schedule to get my Class 3 license (Manual) the coming year (January 2015). 

final theoryThe process is pretty simple, and I spent lots of time researching to understand:
1. What driving license should I take?
2. The most economically (not cheapest but
value for your money) option to get my Singapore driving license
What to avoid by doing this
4. Changing
of different private instructors (not all were good) until I settled for a great one.
And oh boy,
if you don’t simply want to throw money (more expensive) with the driving school, You should try the path I’ve taken. In Singapore, you can take your driving lessons in any of the driving centres here: Bukit Batok driving centre, Comfort driving centre (ubi driving centre) and Woodlands driving centre.

For this website, I look forward to sharing my experience with you and I hope your journey will be
less complicated in comparison with what I experienced. We make an effort to provide the best match for you in attempting to find your private driving instructor and elearning support for your Basic Theory Test (BTT) and Final Theory Test (FTT).

Things to cover / learn in Basic Theory Test / Exam?
strongly suggest you acquire 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. When taking your Singapore driving license, you can hire a private driving instructor for your practical tests at the same time while studying for your basic theory test and final theory test. Check out the Traffic Police Singapore website for other details.

Introduction to driving (in Singapore), different classes of driving licenses
Singapore Road Signs and Signals (you literally
have to memorise each one of 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 good.

This means that, you will be able to proceed to carry out the next 2 steps (together if you want)
Obtain a Provisional Driving License (PDL) – this allows you to learn practical lessons on the roads with a certified driving instructor. Without this PDL, you can not 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.
We will help you clear your Basic Theory Test (BTT) easily.

Taking Your Driving Lessons in Singapore for your Traffic Police Driving License Test
Generally speaking your driving lessons (from beginning to end) involve both theoretical and practical lessons.

The sequence of your driving lessons are as (in order):
1. Basic Theory Lessons (theoretical)
You are able to really study from home at your own comfort you can also attend the lessons covered by the various driving schools. In fact, the Basic Theory Test is based on the basic concepts of driving and understanding the various road signs and traffic regulation. Pretty much rote learning (memorization) in my personal opinion.
2. Final Theory Lessons (theoretical)
Also known “Advance Theory Test”, you can too attend final theory driving lessons if you wish to and like the Basic Theory Tests, we feel it is sufficient to study at your own pace.
3. Practical Driving Lessons (practical)
Unlike the theoretical nature above, you are required to either
attend a driving school for your school driving lessons or engage a private driving instructor for your private driving lessons.

If you heat with a wood stove, smoke will cause your walls to become dingy and you will need to repaint more often than if you heat with a furnace. When you do repaint, it is worthwhile to wipe the walls and ceiling down with a damp sponge to remove as much soot as possible before putting on a new coat of paint.

Air Con Servicing Tips

Not every home improvement project has to be a major overhaul or a major expense; there are a number of quick and easy updates you can make at a reasonable cost to add value and appeal to your home. Start with paint. Paint your walls, your cabinets, your trim or your doors. You can even paint your stove or floor tiles with specialty paint designed for that purpose. Increase storage space by installing closet or pantry organizers. Replace boring kitchen cabinet knobs with ones that are unique and decorative. While you’re at it, do the same with your plain white wall plates. Enhance your new paint job with fresh, bright curtains and sheers. Rent a floor buffer, and buff and wax your hardwood floors. A little cash and a dash of creativity can result in some dramatic changes.

As you have seen in the above tips, there is a lot of knowledge you can acquire before you start a home improvement job and it’s this knowledge that can help you with improving your home properly.

Tips And Hints On Getting Rid Of A Clogged Drain

Now is a great time to enhance your plumbing knowledge. You may have thought of doing it before now, but you just couldn’t find the time to do so. The excellent tips below will make you very happy you took the time now, especially the next time a basic plumbing issue creeps into your life.

Act quickly if your pipes freeze! Shut off the water and open the faucet, enabling it to drain when it thaws. Starting with the faucet, and working your way to the iced-up area, aim a propane torch or hairdryer at the pipe – this will quickly defrost it. You could also wrap the pipe in a heating pad or aim a heat lamp at it, but this will take quite some time. A last resort is to wrap the pipe in rags and pour boiling water over it.

Everyone in your home should know where the main water shut off valve is. By knowing where to find this valve, you’ll be able to shut off the water in the event a pipe bursts, a bathtub or toilet overflows or any other emergency that requires you to turn off the water.

If you are looking to get new piping in your home, try to stay away from copper ones. Copper tends to have problems, due to water and soil corrosion. It is also harder to install these kinds of pipes. Steel or lead pipes tend to offer the best quality and are the most durable.

As the weather turns frosty, make sure faucets outside are not dripping or leaking. If they are, it is necessary to repair them before the arrival of freezing temperatures. Freezing water can cause pressure to build up, causing your pipes to crack, or burst, regardless if your pipes are constructed with steel, plastic, or metal. Even a small crack is capable of releasing enough water to damage or flood your home. If you need a plumber Singapore, find out our plumbing services.

Knowing about basic plumbing is a valuable skill. If you are unsure if you will be able to fix a specific plumbing problem, avoid permanent damage and call a plumber. Ideally, you found the concepts above both interesting and helpful in your quest to expand your plumbing knowledge.

Barter For Services – Always A Good Deal!

Here is an odd situation that I ended up in. I got a call from a friend he wanted me to take a look at his IT system and suggest possible upgrades. Well, I went to look what’s going on there and we ended up with a few good ideas how to improve his computer network and whole IT system. You know, you need to do that every few years because you just don’t notice how new things and software pile up and you add few more workstations here and there, have a web server or even put up some Microsoft solutions like SBS server or whatever they now call it and you end up having most of your network routers, Wi-Fi routers and so on working at maximum or even being overloaded. Nevermind the workstations.

So, a shiny new hardware you bought three years ago today look like something almost out of PC history museum 😀 Not exactly the case with my friend, but you know, thats the usual situation. In his case he wanted few workstations upgraded on a minimal budget and asked me what to do with few older laptops that started running slower. Ahh, and that’s the topic I know fairly good. Reanimating slow laptops and making them work fast is what I actually can do. First of all, if you are on a budget and don’t want to spend $$$ on new Dell or Lenovo, you can do few simple upgrades – adding more ram usually helps a lot and RAM modules are very cheap. Next step which usually adds MASSIVE speed boost is migrating your old hard drive to SSD! Seriously, new solid state drive will basically make your old creepy crawly lappy fly like a rocket again and at a fraction of new laptops price.

Seriously, doubling RAM and moving to SSD will give your laptop new life! And another good thing about it is that these drives supposedly are much safer – think like a huge chip, no moving parts, nothing to break if your laptop (God forbid) falls down or you accidentally bump it on some corner – been there, happened, hit my old lappy on table corner while moving it and got plenty bad clusters on old HDD… had to replace :-/

So, you know what’s best here? We could not agree much on my work prices, so we ended up sitting in a cafe and bargaining over the prices when somehow idea floated up that I could use some of his part time maid services for a while instead. I said, why the hell no – its still money saved on my end. So, this is how I got me maid cleaning up my condo in exchange for providing computer hardware upgrade services 😀 You live, you learn lol!

And so it begins!

I’m always surprised how easy is to get your own website up these days. I remember way back when you had to write endless emails and configure a lot of things to get your site up and then you had to know HTML to actually make it. Now its just few button clicks and whola! My site is up! Yay!

I have great news – I just got my PC revamped – brand new core i7 CPU, 16gigs of RAM and finally, a SSD drive for OS. This baby is flying :-)

Rite, will post pics later on, I think enough for today and I still have some work to do! Catch you all later!
