What do I do after enrolling for driving at Comfort Delgro Driving School (Ubi)?

I just did my eyesight test, paid the registration fee and received the two Highway Code books 1 and 2. The officer was explaining alot of things to me over the counter but it was a massive information overload. So what is my next step? Should I start reading the books first or can I start booking the e-trial and internal evaluation already? Thanks! :)

    For theory, breezing through the book is enough. Look for websites/apps that have test questions. Just do those again and again and you should be ready for BTT/FTT!

    When you begin your practical driving sessions, might be good to have a few dates in mind for the month. Pre-load the account with credits and find out the time(you can ask them) that the system refreshes for the new month. Then book those dates one shot for your lessons.

    If you wait a little too long, slots get snapped up really quickly. So it's best to book them all in advance. I'm not sure if the system used now is still the same as when I did mine years ago. But that should be a good way to ensure you clear your lessons faster.

    All the best, see you on the roads!

    I enrolled with BBDC but the process should be similar. As Tat Tian has shared, start booking the dates asap to secure the slots first. But of course, make sure to cross check with your schedule to ensure that you can make it for those dates otherwise it might be a hassle to change later on.

    Basic Theory Test - Final Theory Test - Practical Test

    The theory tests should be pretty easy to pass. Just read the highway code books and do some sample quizzes which can be found online for free. A few tips for the practical test/driving from my instructor

    • If the tester taps the dashboard while in the circuit, just jam and step fully on the brakes
    • Always signal and check your mirrors & blind spot(s) before moving off (Exaggerate it, literally turn your head around to check)
    • Always stop before turning even if you don't see any vehicles or pedestrians

    All the best!

      Hi Gabriel, thanks for those tips! I was very confused about the theory part, because there is: reading Highway Code Book 1 > 15hr online e-learning > 4x free e-trial test > Internal Evaluation and then the BTT. Is this the right order to complete these? I have also checked online and there are still slots for the next few weeks for the above-mentioned. Is it alright if I just concentrate on reading the book and e-learning for now?

      Yes, that looks correct and it's alright! I took driving as a private candidate, cleared both theory tests on first try by just reading the highway code book and attempting the free quizzes online.

    Start booking ASAP all the dates. Remember to load some cash in to book the basic theory test (1st test).

    And read your Highway code 1 first (the first test).

    Once you pass the highway code 1, then you can start to take practical lesson and take the 2nd test (advanced theory test). Remember to load value, if not you will not be able to book any.
