    • Hi all...
      Am new here and its sad that I have to start by posting something negative. I just got my PDL about a month and a half back after clearing both my BTT and FTT. I found this driving school Daiichi Driving Instruction Center that operates primarily out of CDC at Ubi. I've paid the registration fee of $30 and in the 1.5mths with the school, I've been taught by different instructors on 3 occasions.I'm fine with having a change of instructors once or twice if my "primary" instructor is unavailable however how could it be practically 3/5 lessons?

      That's unreasonable at all. On top of that during lessons, there's this particular old man that teaches me, he would fall asleep in the car, and I had to nudge him awake to ask for directions. Isn't that dangerous? I was pretty pissed of by it considering that I'm paying for the lessons and yet I get such unprofessional service. How is that acceptable? And there's an issue of safety involved as well. I was so pissed by the lack of professionalism that on at times, I would suddenly jam on the brakes to jerk the car to jostle the instructor awake, and he would scold me. I told him off that I'm paying for his services and the least he could do is to stay awake, to which he told me off.

      Now,I don't wish to create any trouble but I would like to highlight to all about the above and wish that somebody can provide me a responsible driving instructor.

      Thanks,
      Ctan87

    • Try this the next time:

      If he falls asleep, just ebrake very hard.

      Then tell him got "MAO" run over.

      Or another tactic, keep shaking the car with the accelerator.
      Spoil his engine.

      do you know how much i pay for bbdc school for 1hr 40min lesson?

      $68.xx with GST inclusive.
      premium service comes with price.

      private instructor most of the times is by word of mouth aka ppl gai xiao one.
      If u belong to the category of calling the number on the car, cos they got not enough students so need to advertise a bit. Mr. Green

      But sadly i am trying to get a date for my 3rd test date. Crying or Very sad

    • IMO, good private instructors only is through word of mouth .Those who adverties alot obviously have no business so the need to advertise. try sourcing for good private instructors from your friends
