    • 13 Feb 2012. Completed the module "Rules and Regulations"

      So many things cannot do. If do already, donate $100, $500 or $1,000 to LTA then go for 2 weeks, or 4 weeks holiday. Hiaz. Plus earn points somemore. 24 points, game over.

      Everybody can complain you, but when you want to complain others, you are supposed to loon, promote harmony because you are aTD.

      Why not you create a checklist on a card for the following situation:

      1.  When you start your day

      2.  When Pax board

      3.  When Pax Alight

      4.  When you end your day.

      lidat, you will not forget. Afer a while, can throw away card.

      after a few missed, he will remember for life. On meter, input all surcharge even before the pax is onboard.

    • Hi Striveon,

      hope i can contribute abit for ur coming TDVL exam next month...

      dun worry too much, generally i see from my own eyes most English educated students in the class are able to pass.

      Section1 syllabus may be a bit out of this generation... no choice, juz haf to memorize 43/50 to pass

      Section2 Routes & Landmarks: your Instructor may tell u which route to memorize n which one no need... Trust me, ALL HAVE TO MEMORIZE. Becos the exam WILL COME OUT ANY OF THE 40 Routes. 23/30 to pass

      Section3: Close eye oso can pass. Highway code ask u those Basic theory. Healthy living & Vehicle Maintenance. Sup sup water 6/10 to pass

      Section4 Defensive driving: Lecturer always the same person. Juz remember wat he told u to memorize. Sure come out... 15/20 to pass

      Section5 NLB (Names&Location of building) - killer section. U won't see the question before in ur class. Some questions are set to make u flip thru the Street Directory like hell. Bear this in mind.. Embassies, schools & some buildings in Robinson & Shenton way came out alot. 41/50 to pass

      Out of the 160 questions, i only make 2 mistakes in Section1... anyway wat the heck, driving Taxi on the road is gonna be a completely different thing.. :)

      can bring road directory

      landmark , route ... dun need to memorize

      get familiarlize with the road directory is more impt

      how fast you flipped the pages also crucial coz time is limited

      all info can be found inside the directory

      things that need to memorize ...rules, food to eat, heart disease, maintenance

      very easy to pass
