With regards to your practical driving, you will find the choices of choosing school driving instructors or private driving instructors.
A primary reason why many people choose private driving instructors would be the cost factor.
You can be paying as little as SGD$45 per 90 minutes session (from what I check on the internet some private driving instructors will offer lower rates) with a private driving instructor. And with the same driving instructor (private), you obtain better pointers with respect to correcting your bad driving btt test habits, which actually increases your chances of passing.
With the main benefit private driving instructor of having a private driving instructor is the cost factor, the following challenge you have is to hire the ideal private driving instructor to prepare you for your practical test.
If you hire and work with a private driving instructor for the first time, there is a one-time SGD$60 (industry average) as registration btt test fee. The problem lies herein, what if you pay the $60 btt test registration fee and doesn’t have the right private driving instructor? You find yourself paying the registration fees for a new private driving instructor again (and you face exactly the same risks still).

As lame as it could sound, you may possibly not have the affinity with a private driving instructor who comes recommended by your friends who have good experience with.
I understand this as this arises from my very own personal first hand experience. My first private driving instructor was an ok person and perhaps I’m a little bit of slow initially, he wasn’t exactly patient with me (my friend who recommended me told me he was really patient with him).
No hard feelings, it’s pretty much identical outside anyway, some people just “click” more with others.
