Practical Lesson Slots Release Schedule

Practical lesson slots will be released on every last Thursday of the month.  If public holiday falls on that Thursday, the slots will be released on the following day.

Why theory lessons are important?

Theory lessons cover knowledge that is not learnt in practical lessons. The objective is not to prepare learners for their theory tests, but to equip learners with safe driving knowledge that benefits them life-long. Topics include defensive driving rules, knowledge of expressway driving, understand speed and impact forces, experience air bag, junction rules, driving on hazardous traffic conditions, etc. Instructor uses newspaper articles and video clips to illustrate on accidents and share preventive measures and safety response.

Theory Practice

Theory practice provides explanation to learners so that they can improve their theory knowledge while preparing for their theory tests.

Theory Evaluation

Theory evaluation lets learners familiarise with the test format and gain confidence in passing the test so as to proceed with practical training without waiting for subsequent theory test attempts. Our high passing rates are proven (source from Singapore Police Force website).


Risk Forecast Training Image


All motorcar learners are required to attend one Risk Forecast Training (PPL 5.01) after Practical Subject 2.05 and complete before Practical Stage 4. This lesson helps learners to increase risk prediction capability in actual traffic situations and reinforces their safe driving knowledge thereby reducing the number of practical lessons.

1. What is Risk Forecast Training (RFT)?

RFT uses a training system that reproduces the actual traffic conditions, allowing users to predict various hazardous situations so as to take countermeasures to prevent accidents.

2. Who should attend?

Motorcar school customers (Course Code: 3C, 3A and 3P) who have completed Practical Subject 2.05 must attend RFT lesson before Practical Stage 4.

3. What are the benefits of attending RFT?

a. Able to experience multiple road hazard situations which learners may not encounter during practical training.
b. Increase self-awareness on road risk and ability to forecast road dangers through an interactive medium.
c. Adequate preparation for prevention of accidents.
d. Help learners to develop on anticipating dangers and reinforce the practical driving knowledge, thereby reducing number of practical lessons needed.

4. How do I book for RFT?

You may log in to your account online and select BookingRisk Forecast Training.

With effect from 1 June 2021, RFT will be conducted online via Zoom Meeting (until further notice).  Customers who have not opt for home-based theory lessons, please submit the HBTL Opt-in Form.
