Our Collection of Compliments

I wrote in to express my sincerest “THANK YOU” to all my instructors in BBDC in this group (G8006). Some I forgot the instructor numbers but to name a few, I’d like to thank Mr Tong SW (2244), my very first instructor who gave the biggest patience to a first time learner like myself, the most patient uncle I’ve come across whom leaners will feel more at ease and confident to pass each stage comfortably.

To Mr Ker Sam (2018), fun to be with and definitely you will learn a skill or two with him.  To Mr Soh FS (2069), you really did a great job teaching me techniques and building my confidence in my maneuvers in the circuit. Of course, I won’t forget Mr Wong CF (6376) during the last stages of my learning, same goes to Mr Ong YH (6322) during my lessons before my practical exam, everyday I am still learning something that has improved my driving skills. I want to thank also Miss Koreen Oh (6299) who only did one time but meaningful lesson with me.  I can’t thank enough Mr Ryan Tan (6439), my warm up instructor who really calm my nerves during the warm up, it really helps!  Thank you!

Mae Anne Doping, 3A, 20 April 2023

Most of the motorcycle instructors are super patient and friendly and very meticulous in their lessons.  Really enjoyed my time taking class 2B there. Passed on second try and they were all super supportive and encouraging me all the way!  Looking forward to going back again in future!

Selena, 2B, 23 April 2023

A huge thanks to Mr Muhammad Syafiq (6640) for displaying his utmost professionalism and patience throughout one of my riding lessons! Thank you for treating us students like your own children and always keeping a lookout for our safety. I believe that many more students will benefit tremendously from your teaching method and your unwavering passion in nurturing future riders/drivers! It is truly a blessing for BBDC to have Mr Syafiq as one of their instructors. 😊

Also would like to take this opportunity to thank instructors Mr Jonathan Poh (6763) and Mr Jervim Gan (6703) for not giving up on me and constantly trying their best to help me improve on my riding. Even though I did not manage to pass their lessons, I am still grateful for the opportunity to be taught by them as I have learned many valuable riding knowledge under their guidance.

Thank you BBDC for having these wonderful instructors!

Lim WQ, 2B, 26 April 2023

I would like to express my thanks to my instructor Mr. Ng JL (6752) from Group 8011. Throughout my time in school, he has been nothing short of encouraging and helpful, especially nearing my test date. I enjoyed learning under his guidance as he made lessons much more engaging and less stressful. I am grateful for his advice and tips on how to conquer the technical parts of the circuit and to be confident on the road. During lessons, he would make the effort to lighten up the mood by engaging in conversations and I found joy in learning from him, for driving, and also the insights that he offered me in other aspects of life. His constant support and faith in me has sustained me through the last lap of my journey here up until my test and this was an indispensable part of my graduation today. I will definitely miss learning under his guidance and hope to convey my sincerest gratitude to him for believing in me even when I doubted myself.

I would also like to express my gratitude to Mr. Ong CS (6304) from Group 8011 for his patience and guidance in teaching me. I fondly remember his patience when he took me for my first lesson and in subsequent lessons which I was grateful for as it really helped to build my
confidence over time. Learning under his guidance was easy as he simplified many seemingly technical maneuvers for me which made it easy for me to understand. I enjoyed chatting with him during lessons and will always remember the advice he has given me.

I would also like to thank Mr. Tan HC (2890) from Group 8011 for his liveliness and patience in teaching me. I appreciate the times where he would correct my mistakes and clear my doubts even when I can be stubborn at times. Learning under him was an insightful and enjoyable
experience and I wish to convey my appreciation to him. 

Lastly, to Mr. Phua TA (2576), Mr. Rosli (2679), Mr. Pang MH (2917), Mr. Lim Lee (5890), and Mr. Hazlan (6426) from Group 8011, thank you all for your guidance during lessons. Albeit the few lessons we had together, I appreciate the encouragement and tips from each of you.  Regrettably, I did not have a chance to meet all the instructors from Group 8011. The past 3 months with BBDC has been an amazing journey thanks to the passionate instructors that I have met from Group 8011 and I wish all of them the best in their future endeavors.

Melanie Tan, 3A, 28 March 2023

I would like to take some time to thank all my instructors from G6007! Couldn’t ask for a better group, I managed to pass on my first try – And its all thanks to my instructors who are patient, professional and reassuring. I really enjoyed all my lessons and have learnt so much. 

Personally, I want to individually thank:

Ng CL (2616): Mr. Ng only taught me once in stage 1 and I believe my TP warm up! He is encouraging and this made me have confidence in my driving. I want to thank him for the last minute circuit tips too! He even called me right after the test to check if I did ok! 

Ong HT (6631): Mr. Ong took me 3 consecutive practicals at the very end of my driving journey. He failed me on my 1st evaluation and with every mistake I made, he was there to correct me and give me advice. He also took me for my 2nd evaluation and with his guidance, I managed to pass. Will never forget it!

Chan WJ (6658): Mr. Chan taught me multiple times throughout this journey, from when I kept stalling outside to stage 3! Thank you for the fun and comfortable lessons – It helped me to be more confident in my driving. He also always remembered who I was, and will direct me to the designated car (even when I wasn’t under him).

Chan YL (6639): Mr. Chan only taught me a few times during Stage 3. He was the one who guided me through the circuit courses. He is strict with checking my car’s position properly which I appreciate so much as it taught me to be more aware.

Kee CH (6740): Mr. Kee’s approach to lessons are straightforward. He was very patient with me during my revision, and always emphasizes that I should trust my judgement on the roads.

Ho JF (6690) and Ong Chuan (6646): Despite teaching me only 2 lessons each, both Mr. Ho and Mr. Ong gave solid tips for my horrible low speed control!! I really improved a lot after these lessons.

Once again thank you to all the G6007 instructors, even to those who haven’t taught me! ❤️

I would like to also thank (Not in G6007):

Jervim Gan (6703): Mr. Gan guided me through my very last revision practical before my TP day. He is thoughtful and approachable! I have a bad habit to hesitate when I am at slip roads – He gave me advice on this issue and it will stick with me for life!!

Special thanks to Mr. Lim HW (1982), amazing customer service!! He aided in booking of revision slots.

Vanessa Lee, 3C, 3 March 2023

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the customer service officer, Mr Xu WL (1018), for being so prompt and responsive towards students’ enquiries.

He had greatly assisted me when I faced issues and went the extra mile to look into the matter and addressed them to the best of his ability.

He had displayed all the positive traits of a customer-oriented officer, something which I personally feel is lacking in society nowadays. It is one thing to be a customer service officer, and another to be so responsible and dedicated while being one. I could tell that Mr Xu is passionate and committed towards his duties, and I can never be more thankful to have my case handled by him.

I had several friends who crossed paths with him during their learning journey in BBDC as well, and I had heard nothing but praises of him. Some had told me that he would even reply and attend to them past his working hours!

So on behalf of my friends too, we would like to say a big THANK YOU to Mr Xu WL for the above and beyond services rendered.

He truly is a gem at BBDC!

Catherine, 3A, 4 March 2023

I have just passed my TP Test (first attempt) today and I would like to thank some of the instructors I had particular fond interactions with.

Muhd Shukur (6809) – He was very cheerful, and was eager to help correct my mistakes and misconceptions that would otherwise have caused me demerit points during the test. He was also good at calming me down as I tend to get nervous at the start of each practical. I fumbled quite a bit, especially with parking, but he patiently guided me throughout.

Johnathan Poh (6763) – He was very calm and composed, giving me useful tips throughout my lesson with him. In parallel parking in particular, he even encouraged me to deliberately hit the curb and experience for myself, so I could be familiar and confident with the amount of space the vehicle takes up in the parking lot.

Syed Ibrahim (6354) – I had a memorable time with him when I was only starting to get familiar with lane changing in heavy traffic and the like. He was humorous while being informative, and I owe a lot of what I have learnt for lane changing to him. He did not scold me when I made mistakes, and instead smoothly guided me along better methods of manoeuvre on the road. He also encouraged me a lot in gaining confidence.

Deng Cheng, 3A, 10 March 2023

Mr Chua SY (6593) displayed exceptional professionalism during the lesson. He was very patient, and often taking the time to explain topics in detail. He was also very sharp at picking mistakes, and provide the correct instruction!

Zhang JW, 2A, 7 March 2023

Jonathan Soh (6606)– Provided tips and advice during my 2B journey. Thoughtful and patient.

Yeo CS (6752)- Critical feedbacks, straight to the point, ensuring that I learn from my mistakes. Helps me be prepared for the test itself.

Tay HY 2B, 10 March 2023

I am writing in to give a compliment feedback for your motorcycle instructor, Mr Tay ZY (6766). Zhi Yang was a very knowledgeable and patient instructor who teaches his students sincerely. He was very willing to answer all the questions that we had to improve on our riding skills and to handle the TP practical test. He was very friendly, approachable and sincere in guiding his students. I am very pleased to have him as my instructor today. I had my 2B license with BBDC as well and this is the first time that I have met such a nice instructor. His tone was good and he had made my learning experience a very pleasant one.

I hope that more instructors would be able to learn from him and take his lead in bringing BBDC to greater heights.

Once again, thank you very much for this awesome experience, Mr Tay Zhi Yang.

Lim WK, 2A, 16 March 2023

I would like to like to express my heartfelt thanks to instructor Mr Ang BP (6524) for being such an amazing instructor. During one of my class 2B lessons, Mr Ang was patient and paid close attention to all of his students progress. Not only is he experienced and knowledgeable in his teaching, most importantly, he cared for his students’ well being. Mr Ang ensured that his lesson was an enjoyable experience for all of us and kept a lookout for our safety.

Thank you Mr Ang once again, for a truly remarkable and memorable riding lesson for all us! Mr Ang is the reason that I will recommend BBDC for anyone who is planning to get his/her riding license. I hope that more instructors of BBDC will adopt the same teaching method as Mr Ang, and practice encouragement instead of criticism as a more effective learning experience.

Lim WQ, 2B, 31 March 2023

Had some lessons with Jansen Wong (6695) when I did 2B previously, but he remained a clear, patient, and helpful instructor when he took me for a few lessons under his group for Class 3. He gave useful tips for my parking and S-course, which clarified my on-off success with the courses. Most of my group instructors were actually very friendly and patient, but deep appreciation to Jansen, the group leader, for taking great care of us!

Ping Rui, 3C, 11 March 2023

I would like to give my compliments to instructor Mr Ong RH (6793). He was the best instructor that I had throughout many lessons in BBDC. He taught me a lot of useful tips and advice for driving and was very friendly and professional. I gained a lot of confidence from what he taught me and enjoyed the lessons very much. Thank you!

Victoria, 3A, 14 March 2023

I would just like to thank and compliment my instructor Pang KT (2147). He is very patient and make sure the student understand the driving concepts to learn correctly rather than simply following the theories. His explanation was also clear for learners to understand. Thank you so much!

Shu Hui, 3A, 16 March 2023

Mr Shukur (6809) is an amazing instructor. He was not stingy with his knowledge and gave tips and praises as and when necessary. His teachings are definitely be something that I will be able to remember. His directions are clear and even though he was a little sick, he still managed to teach successfully. Those who have been taught by him would know what I mean when I say he is a good instructor 🙂

M. Amshar, 3C, 18 March 2023

I would to thank my instructor, Hisyammuddin (6805) for being patient and also being informative in coaching me through my practical lessons 4, 5 & RR.  He also guided me well in my weak areas in driving till I understand.  Thank you once again.

Eli Amin, 3C, 23 March 2023

I am writing in to compliment instructors of the Group G6003, for being awesome instructors. They were all so kind and patient and such a joy to be around. They provided me with a safe and calm space to learn in, which greatly lessen my worry as a learner. I am really glad to be appointed to this Group, and owe it to all of them in helping me achieve a pass on my first test. Would really appreciate if you could assist to convey my appreciation to all of them, to thank them for their contagiously positive spirit and support, I am forever grateful. 🙂

Junko, 3C, 26 March 2023

It is with great gratitude that I extend my sincere thanks to my fixed instructor, Mr Ong RH (6793) for his endless guidance and support during my driving lessons.

It was thanks to him that I was able to pass on my first attempt. His patience, professionalism, and expertise have made a huge difference in my driving skills and confidence on the road. I’m so grateful for his ability to pinpoint exactly where I’m struggling and help me improve which made a huge difference in my driving.

I really appreciate his ability to adapt his teaching style to meet my needs. His teaching style creates a really comfortable and supportive environment, which has been especially helpful and keeps me at ease during our lessons. I can tell that he cares about my success as a learner and is willing to try different approaches and offer helpful tips. My ability to learn and grow has been greatly enhanced by his flexibility and willingness to change things up when necessary.

Once again, I truly appreciate his dedication and commitment to helping me become a much more safer, confident and independent driver.

Callista, 3A, 25 February 2023

I would like to compliment motorcar instructor Ahmad Taufik (6787) from G6003.

I had the pleasure of learning to drive Class 3 motorcar with Taufik. He is an excellent teacher who made me feel comfortable and confident behind the wheel. His patience and clear instructions helped me to quickly develop my driving skills. I would highly recommend Taufik to anyone looking for a skilled and supportive driving instructor.

Thanks to Taufik, I now feel confident and safe on the road, and also able to pass the driving test smoothly.

Xavier Lee, 3C, 27 February 2023

I would like to thank you for the great training provided by BBDC team G8011.

I sincerely appreciate their patience and guidance, especially Ng JL (6752), Lim Lee (5890) and Pang MH (2917). Thank you so much for your time and effort, I’m extremely happy today!

Thanks again, and best regards.

He YD, 3A, 2 February 2023

Kendrick Ng JL (6752) is a highly effective and experienced instructor! I picked him as my fixed instructor and passed my practical test on my first try. He’s quick in pointing out your mistakes but in the meantime, patient to guide you through. He pays attention to how you develop your skills and adapt the lessons accordingly. He’s also very friendly which made each lesson enjoyable! Highly recommended!

Yan XX, 3A, 15 February 2023

This is long overdue compliment. I passed the road test with my first try in Aug 2022. It was all thanks to the instructors of Car 111, 112 and 143 and one of them is called Caleb Sim (6721). They are very passionate and patient. The instructors of Car 111 and 143 kept track of my progress until right before the test and I was really appreciate of it. I was having a difficulty for parallel parking and the instructor of Car 112 taught me how to control the speed which was a huge help.

Jasmine, 3A, 20 February 2023

I would like to thank all the instructors at BBDC who had provided me with their guidance, coaching, and motivated me in my journey to obtain my Class 3A Driving License. Thanks to their efforts, I was able to pass my Traffic Police Driving Test the first time.

Special mention goes to Instructor Tan CH (6048) who was very encouraging and patient during our lessons. In the earlier stage, he gave me the confidence to drive even though it was all new to me.

I would also like to specially thank Instructor Lam CC (6245) whom I was with for only a couple lessons, but whom I believe played a pivotal role in helping me achieve the best outcome. He is a very motivating and knowledgeable instructor who is willing to answer any question you may have. He was forthcoming with his guidance and explained concepts in a simple yet impactful way that made it easy for me to remember. Because of his teaching skills and coaching ability, I improved so much during his lessons and could even apply his advice in subsequent revision lessons right before the test. I am highly impressed by his dedication to his students and grateful for it as well. Would definitely recommend learning driving with him!

Sheryl Wee, 3A, 6 January 2023

Mr Yusoff (6440) is a dedicated and passionate instructor. He makes his students feel comfortable, while ensuring the students get the best instruction. He ensures his students are able to hear, comprehend, and carry out the required steps to learn correctly. Thanks!

Zhang JW, 2A, 8 January 2023

Trainer Syahir (6463) was extraordinarily nice and friendly to the participants. He didn’t give unnecessary remarks or pressure. He ensured all participants had a pleasurable time during the session. in addition, furnishing us with the essential skill to pass our tests.

Koh QK, 2, 10 January 2023

Passed my TP test on my first attempt recently, and would like to commend one of my group’s instructors, Ong YH (6322).

Throughout the course of my practical lessons, he has taught me the most number of times, and has always been an approachable and patient instructor.

Always willing to clarify my doubts, he does not hesitate in giving me pointers to be a more safe and confident driver. For that, I have been able to benefit immensely from his guidance.

Leon Pek, 3A, 23 January 2023

Vincent Lim PL (6704) is a wonderful instructor that I wish to compliment.  I have had difficulty with clearing 3.01 pylon/slalom and luckily I met Vincent on the 6th try.

With a systematic and progressive approach, the details of various techniques required in this lesson are made very clear and easy to absorb in stages that he has broken down.

It is extraordinary that he was able to highlight and correct my phobia of hitting the pylon cones, even when I did not mention it. With an encouraging tone of voice, Vincent helped to imbue confidence in myself, and in his teaching, when I have often felt shitty from multiple previous failures.

Zou XR, 2B, 11 January 2023

I would like to share my experience I had with 3 of your instructors, Muhammad Irfeen (6727), Muhammad Farhan (6653) & Yusoff Khan (6440). I feel like that deserves some recognition as they are amazing at what they do. They have made my learning experience very efficient and made sure that I understand everything very clearly. They even sacrificed their lunch time to teach me properly. They will go out of their way to make sure I understand clearly.

I hope they will get the recognition they deserve.

Ananth Singh, 2A, 27 January 2023

I would like to give my warmest compliment Chong LW (7164) in the TPDS room for her service.

She has a joyful attitude and was very detailed in serving the students in the room.  She is polite and even took the effort to pronounce our name one by one and choose to call our name if there is any comments to be made during the TPDS session.  I am very impressed with how professional she is and her service towards the students there.

Noorhidayat, 2A, 31 January 2023

Compliment to Ms Yu Pei (7167), Customer Service Representative

I like to compliment Ms Yu Pei’s service for my family. On 14 Dec 2022 about 1230pm – 130pm, my wife and I were served by her on the car learning programme. She displayed competency by explaining the car driving package in detailed, and she could respond to our queries confidently and efficiently. Separately, I asked her to check if Senior Instructor Mr Mislam is still with BBDC, as I may want my wife to be taught under his wings (I was taught by him, and had passed the test at 1st attempt in the early 90s under his guidance). Yu Pei made the effort to accede to my request without turning me down.

Throughout the registration period, she remained patient, competent, courteous and cheerful which gives me a good impression that BBDC has trained Yu Pei well for being a customer centric person which not many people can achieve easily!

Please make her the role model for BBDC, and I thank her for her good performance!

Keep up the good work and continue to bring smiles to everyone you meet at work, Yu Pei! You are an asset to BBDC!

Mark Eugene Han, 14 December 2022

I would like to give a huge shoutout to G6003 instructors for their teachings, patience, professionalism, life lessons and humor which made every lesson pleasant and fulfilling! Kudos to them, I passed the TP test in my first attempt!

Thank you Aidil (6759) for believing in me and supporting me throughout! I remembered your words during the test and managed to always move off in the correct gear.

Thank you Iqbal (6776) for checking up on my progress and encouraging me to do my best such that I have more confidence now!

Thanks Steve (6789) for the emotional pep talk just a day before my test which I really need even though it was just simple phrases to calm me down!

Thanks to Taufik (6787) for all the helpful pointers aka crash course that I should take note of at certain areas of the routes!

Thanks to Hakim (6773) for telling me to focus on avoiding immediate failure mistakes which made me less panicky!

Thanks Ashraf (6771) for the right turn and U-turn lessons which I can confidently do now!

Lastly, big thanks to Antonio Joseph (6772), Hamka (6761), Arshad (6538), Azlan (6786), Shahrezza (6749) and Leo CT (2134) for your dedicated teachings! Words are insufficient to express my gratitude for you guys. I will keep all your advice in mind, remain calm and drive safely!

Jie Wen, 3C, 3 December 2022

Thank you SO much to all my instructors at G6007! All credit goes out to all them — I couldn’t have asked for a better group here in BBDC. All of their advice played back consistently through my test and I cannot begin to express how helpful everyone is.

Ong HT (6631): Was the first instructor to fail any of my lessons but for a good reason — my engine braking and footwork hasn’t faltered since, and it is definitely one of those skills that stick with you, and it’s one of those minor details that made me pass with only 10DP. Thank you for being so strict with me and your methods!

Ho JF (6690): God tier parking advice! I’m so confident in my parking in circuit because of him. He is so detailed and you can clearly tell he knows his stuff. He trained my clutch control on a hill for a good 10 minutes, doing nothing but going forward & backward on the slope, making sure I don’t roll back or stall. Haven’t done either since! Once again, it’s these minor details that made me so much more confident for my test, and in my foundation. Thank you for being such an amazing teacher.

Clement Chan (6658): Funniest guy you’ll ever meet! Lessons with him are not only educational, but fun and comfortable as well. He drills you on your skills whilst allowing you to enjoy your lessons. Thank you for making me enjoy my time in BBDC — I’ve never dreaded going to any lessons ever.

Ong Chuan (6646): He teaches the most important techniques! His “toggle eye” tactic is one of a kind, and I cannot emphasise how important it is. He also honed in on my low speed control in circuit, carefully going through each and every step with me a day before my test. He is polite and respectful, only ensuring the best for each student. Thank you for giving me advice that I’m sure will last me a lifetime.

Ryan Tan (6439): There’s only one word to describe Ryan — AMAZING! When he took me for my revisions I instantly could already tell how skilful and precise he is. He is a fantastic teacher, teaching with so much passion and heart. He pushes you to do better, be better and achieve more. He is so encouraging as well — I was so anxious a few days before my test and his “confirm can pass one” instantly gave me the confidence I needed. Thank you for giving me so much confidence & encouragement that I couldn’t have passed without.

Ng CL (2616): He set the foundation for my driving experience — taking me mostly in my first few lessons, he definitely set the standard and prerequisite to pass my test. His easy to understand approach and teaching definitely made my learning experience so much more smooth and enjoyable. Thank you for making lessons feel safe, where I don’t feel afraid to fail and make mistakes.

Kee CH (6740): Definitely an instructor who only wants the best for you — he’s one of those instructors who takes care of their students, understanding that we make mistakes and might not know what to do at times. When I was stuck in heavy traffic and was feeling scared, his kind words and succinct instructions allowed me to gain the confidence I needed to go through. Thank you for being such an awesome instructor!!

Vincent Awyong (6281): Only praises to sing for this instructor! I enjoy his lessons so much — driving lessons can get very serious and scary at times but he does a fantastic job of making a student feel comfortable and relaxed. I am so grateful to Vincent for believing in me when I didn’t. I was so scared for my mock test but his words & encouragement lifted me up, and seeing him place so much faith in me can only lead you to start believing in yourself as well. Thank you for being such a fun & good, and supportive instructor.

Frankie Huang (6308): His teaching method is SO detailed and distinct! To the point where how you use your clutch also matters (knee, not ankle) & advice I haven’t forgotten throughout my entire driving journey. He makes sure you’re never unsure about anything, with understandable step by step instructions that will never fail you. Thank you for being such a wonderful instructor!

While there are some instructors who I’ve never met, I’m very sure that they are of the same standard, hold the same values in ensuring the best for each student.

In addition, I’d also like to thank a few more instructors:

Lim KY (6501): Went through an intense hazard lesson with him! He makes sure and drills you with tactics and skills that will equip you to drive after passing. Super effective, skilful and impactful. I’ve enjoyed all my lessons with him — learnt so much while having an enjoyable time at the same time.

Tiow WP (6649): Once again, another instructor who pulled up my confidence by so much! He also believed in me in a time where I was so afraid of my test — but practiced and supported me days before my test. Super grateful to have gotten such a encouraging instructor days before your test.

Xuelin, 3C, 30 December 2022

I would like to thank the instructors of the G8037 Group who guided me to passing my TP test on the first attempt in spite of my stupid questions and nervousness on the road and in the circuit during the learning and revision stages. In particular, I would like to thank Mr Lau KY (6588) and Uncle James Soh KO (6375). Mr Lau for being strict where it was necessary (during my evaluation at the end of stage 5) and kind and patient when it was needed, the day before my TP test. Uncle James – thank you for being so cheerful and positive, and having faith in me during my two revision lessons with you and taking me on more right turn practices without scolding me even though I’d forgotten how to do it properly.

I would whole-heartedly recommend BBDC to anyone who is considering learning through a school for the clear lesson structure and experienced instructors.

Leong SZ, 3A, 19 December 2022

I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to my Fixed Instructor Mr Shawal (6581) for the many lessons he patiently taught me. When I first started driving lessons, I was always very nervous and anxious. I was truly blessed to be randomly assigned to Mr Shawal during my circuit lesson. Circuit lessons were particularly challenging for me as I made many strikes and mounts but his calm demeanour and words of encouragement provided much comfort to me. Despite all the silly mistakes I made, he would respond in a kind and calm tone “It’s ok. Don’t worry. Let’s try this again” On the roads, I struggled with lane changes. He is always the voice of reassurance and I felt safe and confident. Mr Shawal always went the extra mile to clarify my doubts, cheer me up and will give me a motivational pep talk after each lesson.

I honestly couldn’t have passed my TP test without him and I truly appreciate everything he has done for me! Thank you, Sir!

Juditha, 3A, 22 December 2022

Instructor Tan MY (2489) is very nice and patient with learner although learner was very slow. When I was stuck at a certain objective, he was very patient and encouraging, and helped me a lot to get through the course objectives. Learning under him was a pleasure!!

I’ve passed my test, thank you so much uncle!

Loh LS, 3A, 5 December 2022

I would like to thank my fixed instructor Mr Caleb Sim (6721) for his guidance and support throughout my learning journey in BBDC!  He has been very patient with me and provide lots of tips. I appreciate his efforts and his efforts paid off as I managed to pass my TP on my first attempt.

In addition, I would like to thank all other instructors from G8011 who have been supportive during my final round of revision lessons! They have been great and I am thankful to be assigned to this group! 😊

Foo XT, 3A, 9 December 2022

I would like to thank the amazing instructors at BBDC.  I have had 5 lessons with 5 different instructors and they have all been fantastic, professional, often funny and make it a lot less stressful than I expected.  Thank you very much.

Anne, 2B, 16 December 2022

I would like to put in good reviews for my group G8032 instructors as most of them were amazing teachers!  I am impressed by their own respective teaching capabilities.  Each was special in their own way 🙂

Mr Syafiq (6640) was very professional and understanding and helped me understand the common mistakes, rules etiquettes and was very reasonable.  I really liked how he continued to be patient despite countless mistakes I made.  He was able to calm my nerves and helped me stay focused.  Due to our close age gap, we  get along very well and I am more open to ask questions.

Mr Rahman (2127) was very professional, experienced and understanding.  Before my TP, he monitored my progress closely and correct alot of crucial mistakes along the way.  He provided me the confidence and focused environment that I needed and gave alot of tips.  What matters most is that, he is very patient, he won’t shout at you for making mistakes.  New drivers need positive reinforcements and Mr Rahman is the perfect instructor.

I was randomly assigned to Mr Azman (2743).  Stick to Mr Azman and driving didn’t felt like a chore.  Love our chats on our drives and feel much more confident and competent as a driver, thanks to his guidance.  He explained the skills required in a clear and easy-to-understand manner.  His teaching aids for car placement and positioning are useful, especially in learning how to perform the skills safely yet efficiently.  He was patient, friendly and professional.  

I would recommend this school to my friends and family.  My warm-up instructor Ms Koreen Oh (6299) made my skills test jitters disappear and she answered my last minute panic questions in a calm and steady manner.

I was very fortunate to be assigned to group G8011. I would like to thank Mr Seetho TW (5907), Mr Tommy Ong (6304), Mr Ng JL (6752), Mr Pang KT (2147), Mr Chua SY (6593) and Ms Mui FM (5898) for your guidance throughout my 3A journey.

Special thanks to Mr Caleb Sim (6721) for helping me to pass my test on my first attempt! I was impressed by his patience, professionalism and teaching method that has helped me to overcome my nervousness when doing lane change in heavy traffic. He taught me well that I’ve become a confident and a safe driver. I highly recommend Mr Sim as a fixed instructor to anyone learning to drive and going for their test. Mr Sim definitely deserves more recognition for his awesome service! Got my 3A license in 3 months. Thank you bbdc!

Ong RE, 3A, 9 November 2022

I would like to thank Ms Adeline Mok (6632) for being a wonderful instructor. She is very calm, patient, and friendly when answering clarifications from students. This encourages me to clarify my doubts during lessons. I enjoyed my lessons with her and am grateful for the life-long driving knowledge she imparted to me.

With the valuable test tips she gave during revision lessons, I passed my TP test on the first attempt. Thank you very much, Miss Adeline. Wishing you the best in your future endeavours 🙂

Wong JL, 3A, 18 November 2022

I would like to write in a compliment for my fixed instructor, Ng JL (6752). He has been nothing but supportive.  He is super supportive and patient and very very professional. He teaches in a manner that is calm and strong and understandable. 2-3 sessions with him, my confidence level was high.  He told me to book my TP test and I did. And today I passed thanks to him!

Priyanthi Michael, 3A, 25 November 2022

My lesson with Mr Chan YL (6639) was actually some time ago, but he was a great help to me despite me only having one lesson with him so it’s only right for me to show my appreciation. I am writing to show my gratitude towards his efforts in helping me to improve my parallel parking during revision lesson. He realised what I was lacking and explained in great detail how to avoid making the same mistakes. His advice was timely and useful especially since my test day was approaching, and could potentially mean the difference between a pass or fail. I see all my instructors’ valuable tips and advice as pieces of a puzzle that represents the driving test, without any of them the puzzle couldn’t have been completed. No doubt he is direct and strict when it comes to teaching but it is only for our own good, and I am glad that he is strict when the time calls for it. I know he will continue to make a positive impact on his learners and train them to be safe, skilful drivers!

Crystal, 3A, 19 November 2022

I would like to thank the theory lessons, driving simulator and risk forecast training instructors who helped me understand the theory well that allowed me to put the theory knowledge into the theory tests and in my practical lessons. I would like to also thank Mr Lim KC (2053), Mr Tan TM (2105), Mr Goh CH (2334), Mr Lee KH (6285) and other instructors from G8003. Thank you for the knowledge you have taught from the basics to advanced about the driving skills needed for the practical test. This helped me to obtain a class 3A license. I am very grateful for the kind customer service provided to me.

Maharani AP, 3A, 20 November 2022

I want to thank Caleb Sim (6721) and all the instructors from G8011 for their endless guidance and tips on proper driving techniques and driving safely. I appreciate them as they boosted my confidence and fine-tuned my driving skills during lessons and before my test, thus, allowing me to pass on my first TP test attempt.

Desmond Toh, 3A, 24 November 2022

I would like to thank the Motorcycle Department for all the guidance and support given throughout my course here.  Being a 62-year-old lady, taking motorcycle license is a very daunting yet exciting experience.

I really, really appreciate the encouragements given by all the instructors who turned my anxiety into the most positive learning experience.  I would especially like to express my immense gratitude to instructor Muhammad Farhan Bin Hamdan (6653) for going the extra mile in helping me with my plank. I had failed my TP test twice due to my nervousness doing the plank. Instructor Muhd Farhan sacrificed his break time to look at my weaknesses and gave valuable tips to improve my riding. Thus, with his coaching, I was more confident and passed the test without a trace of nervousness.

Thank you once again to Bukit Batok Driving Centre for the friendly and supportive services and coaching provided.  I will definitely share my positive experiences with my friends and families.

Suriyati, 2B, 1 October 2022

A remarkable thing about BBDC is that throughout your entire learning journey with them, you won’t cease to come across friendly and patient instructors and staff.

I was blessed to be assigned to my fixed instructor Kendrick Ng Jun Long (6752) and his entirely amazing group of G8011, on my 3rd practical lesson. He provided a safe space for me to learn and make mistakes, explained to me in great detail concepts that I didn’t initially find easy to grasp, and taught me valuable techniques (for circuit courses especially). From the very first lesson until right before my TP test, he never failed to be the voice of encouragement. And because of that too, I passed my TP test on the first attempt.

Learning from Kendrick felt a lot like learning from a friend because of how seamless it was to discuss my progress in the course and how sincere he is as an instructor in ensuring you’re skilled and well-prepared for your test.

I’ve driven quite a fair bit on public roads now and I have to say sometimes I still “hear” his voice giving advice or guidance from the passenger seat. Thank you my best instructor, for making my entire learning process with BBDC a wholesome and memorable journey

Sharifa, 3A, 22 October 2022

I am still taking driving lessons, but I would like to compliment Mr Shawal (6581) for having the patience to teach me step by step and cheering me up when I make a mistake . I am quite clumsy and easily distracted but Mr Shawal was there to get me back to focus and was very polite in guiding me . He is a very patient and fun instructor . For my further practical lesson I really hope to get Mr Shawal as my instructor .

Vaneesaa 3A, 10 October 2022

Really thankful to Mr Tan YJ (2052).  He is easily the best instructor I have come across. He is friendly & easy-going, teaches with patience, professionalism & kindness. After each lesson with him, I feel more confident behind the wheel. He makes driving easier for me by sharing extensive techniques for one to control the car. Mr Tan, I really appreciate your kind words & motivating me when I needed it. Thank you!

Shanice, 3C, 14 October 2022

Caleb Sim (6721) is instructor who is really dedicated to teaching his students. He was very patient with me and even allowed me extra practice time the day before my test. He was very thorough with his explanations as well and he helped me build my confidence in driving both on the circuit and on the road. Managed to pass well with his help! Thank you for the guidance, really appreciate it:)

Clara Ng, 3A, 21 October 2022

Customer service member Li Dan Lian (7155) was a professional service staff. She was patient and spoke nicely. Coming from someone with history of working in the service industry, it is easy to let emotions carry over from servicing a uncooperative customer/uninformed customer but she had kept things professional and spoke clearly and concisely and worked to help resolve the issue without making the customer feel berated. I am impressed with the performance of the staff. She had created an environment which allows the customer to feel safe and I believe that is a very important ability as a member in the service industry.

Tan BK, P3, 5 October 2022

I took my driving test on 6/10/22, and I passed on my first attempt. I’m writing to commend Ravishankar (6472) who I attribute this to. He was the instructor for my final revision. I was rusty with both my parking and directional change despite a few practices prior, and he made the decision to stay in circuit for the whole session to drill on the areas that I was lacking in (safety checks!!!). It’s been a year since I last went for my practical lessons, so it was a bit difficult to get the momentum back. Regardless, he taught me everything again, and made sure that I remembered. He was the only instructor who thoroughly made sure I got everything right and corrected the way I was checking my blind spots. I remember getting 22 demerit points + 1 immediate failure during the mock test he did in circuit. During my driving test, I ended up getting only 2 points for my circuit. I’m really grateful that he went through everything again with me and drilled it into my memory until I was confident, don’t think I would have passed if it wasn’t for that revision session 🙂

Kaisah Amalia, 3A, 6 October 2022

First at all, I was very happy because I have passed the test and got my driving license. I would like to thank my very good instructor Tan KK (5893), he taught me a lot of lessons with patience and many useful experience for my test.  I really appreciate his kindness and teaching for me.  I also felt lucky that on the test day, I got instructor Teo TS (2171) for warm up.  He did the best warm up for me before the test, which made me more confident. And one more instructor Ronald Siew (5927), I am also thankful even though he taught me just a few days but his skill helped me a lot on my driving journey. I will recommend some of my friends to BBDC for sure.  This place is very good driving center in my mind.

Nguyen T.H.T, 3A, 18 October 2022

I got my Class 3 license from BBDC more than 25 yrs ago, and this year I’m back to to BBDC for Class 2B and I passed on my FIRST TRY!

Credit must go to BBDC team of well trained motorcycle Instructors for teaching each and everyone of the trainees patiently. Be it under the scorching sun or pouring rain, they are with us. Never losing their cool even when they had to repeat the same thing over and over when trainees make the same mistakes repeatedly (nerves are sometimes difficult to overcome). Injecting fun into the class whenever possible and yet with laser sharp focus on clearing the course effectively and safely.

As a matured lady rider learner, I appreciate that the instructors do keep additional lookout for trainees who are weaker in general. For example, when I push off the bike from main stand, whoever is the nearest instructor would always standby to catch the bike BEFORE my bike tilts. I noticed that if anyone of the trainees dropped the bike, the focus of the instructors will always be to check if the trainees are physically ok, before sorting out the mechanical issues. I felt safer as a result and motivated to learn from BBDC instructors.

SN Peck, 2B, 30 September 2022

I am a returning attendee for my class 2A and I am enlightened to see that the service delivery remains top-notch and the staff are flexible when performing their duties to ensure that customers needs are met.  Today is my first day of lessons and I am very heartened by the service rendered by 2 customer-service staff and 2 instructors (TPDS and Practical 1.01).

Ms Yu Pei (7167) and Ms Dan Lian (7155) were efficient and most polite. They noted that I have a lesson starting soon and they managed to serve me and processed the needful swiftly without hesitation.

TPDS staff Ms Chong LW (7164) was very polite and attentive to ensure that I did not face any difficulties with the simulation machine.

Mr Ang BP (6524), as usual, taught the class with a warm touch and ensured safety, understanding, and practised his own discretion for my concerns faced during the class.

I had an excellent experience for course 2B and I am glad to experience the same a year after. Please compliment the staff involved and all others as they have made BBDC a school where students are relaxed and can learn without fear. As a public service member, this is impeccable.

Max Ng, 2A, 15 September 2022

A big shoutout to Mr Chai YZ (6599) who’s passionate and patient in guiding slow learner like me. Thank you for giving me the confidence to ride and for helping me to overcome my nervousness! His lessons were very informative, well-structured and I really appreciate his encouragement.

Mr Jervim Gan (6703) pays extensive attention to details and provides useful tips in refining my skills. He is extremely thoughtful as he reminded us to keep our phones in the locker in case it gets wet as it rains during the training. He even offered to lend me a pair of gloves when i forgot to bring one, I am touched by his thoughtful actions and I feel he definitely deserves more recognition for he’s awesome service!

In general, motorcycle instructors are highly professional and knowledgeable in every aspects of riding. Kudos to the motorcycle team and I’m looking forward to get my 2B license soon!

Ong RE, 2B, 12 September 2022

I would like to say a big thank you to Caleb Sim (6721), who is very knowledgeable and helpful during the lessons. When I was having difficulties doing lane change in heavy traffic, he gave detailed rules and instructions. Moreover, he taught me how to safety check every time whenever necessary. Moreover, he always kept an eye on my progress, which is responsible and sweet :). I will recommend Sim to those who want a fixed instructor, with his informative teaching methods and passionate attitude to his students.

Yu MH, 3A, 20 September 2022

I would like to compliment Mr Tan HA (2793). Strict but patient and experienced instructor. Thanks so much for your help and endless support in getting my licence. Nearing the test, he even sacrificed part of his lunch break to guide me with vertical parking!!

With his guidance and patience he taught me the skills to become a safe driver. Thank you for giving me the confidence to drive. His lessons were very informative, well-structured and I really appreciated his encouragement.

I will recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning to drive. I honestly couldn’t have done it without him and I really appreciate everything he has done for me!  All the best for the future!

Lucy Y, 3A, 27 September 2022

For Mr Rajalingam (1983), Ms Hamidah (3706) , Mr Paul Soh (6471) and Driving Instructors

I passed my 3A Driving on 27/09/2022 after going through the journey of registering, theory, practical & test. It was hard time during covid to go through it but, it is made to happen by all the staff by BBDC.

Especially Customer Service Staff and Driving Instructors who encouraged effective learning to make safe drivers.  I also appreciate Final Driving Testers to check thoroughly of my driving even though I went few tests to qualify. 

In all, I enjoyed learning to get life time driving licence.  I appreciate staff for being cheerful, helpful, humble & giving proper positive guidance to achieve the result.

Sunita, 3A, 28 September 2022

I passed 3A at 1st attempt, thanks to the professional instructors from BBDC. (16 years ago, I also passed my 2B in BBDC too) There are many to name, but the ones that I would like to compliment are:

Chua PC (6045) – A very approachable and friendly instructor who shared a lot of valuable experiences that learners can learn from.

Yau HL (6025) – This is one of the best instructors I ever encountered in BBDC. He was super patient with me despite my mistakes, and he was calm and this really eased my anxiety on taking the test. He also shared with me some tips that none of the instructors shared with me before on the parking techniques, which in the end I thought he was really the instructor that taught me rather than the previous instructors.

Lam CC (6245) – He really boosted my confidence with his kind encouragement and he was the only instructor that taught me how to change lane properly.

All in all, other instructors and the staff (counter) were friendly and addressed my enquiries promptly, thank you BBDC!

Cheng ZW, 3A, 27 September 2022

I want to expressly my thanks to my G6007 instructors, who all have guided me with patience, kindness, empathy, professionalism, and wit. Not only am I now (hopefully) a safe and competent driver, I’m also a better person. These guys have miraculously turned the dreaded journey to BBDC into something I look forward to every time, even as my TP test drew near. I enjoy lessons because of them. Because of their expert training, I passed on the first attempt 🙂

Individually, I’d like to thank:

Ryan Tan (6439): For teaching me stuff above my stage to accelerate my learning. Ryan is knowledgeable, personable, affable, and an all around cool guy. Thank you for pushing and challenging me without having to ask. Ryan uses his prior experience to identify minute lapses in technique to fine tune ability, and deliver an enjoyable ride. His advice to “read the wheels and mirrors” also strongly resonated with me.

Vincent Awyong (6281): He failed my first lesson with him! While Vincent is strict, he wanted me to get more practice so I’d be totally comfortable shifting gears up and down. He’s also incredibly witty and funny – there is never a dull moment in his car. Humour, confidence, and charisma are how he runs. He remembered me despite having a month between our lessons together. I finally passed 4.02 thanks to how at ease he made me feel. Vincent makes you forget your stress so you can focus on doing your best!

Frankie Huang (6308): Frankie is Vincent’s buddy. He tests students on which lane to right turn into at the blind wall to go straight into 47 so the tester cannot trick us. His bright and energetic personality made his lesson engaging. He points out crucial landmarks, sighting points, and positioning tips for circuit courses. Most importantly, he emphasises being vigilant at side roads where cars (and jaywalkers) can pop up unexpectedly.

Lim CL (6059): He pushed me past my speed comfort zone on the road. Because of that, I’m more confident using gear 4 more regularly.

Ng KL (5926): Despite only taking me for one lesson, he remembered me several months later on the day I passed my TP Test. Mr Ng is empathetic, wise beyond words, and insanely principled. He not only taught me driving, he also instilled integrity, compassion, and how to connect with people into me. He is the epitome of kindness. It’s evident why he’s friends with everyone!

Tang Hao (6726): First taught me to reverse using the poles and painstakingly, patiently guided my nervous self to avoid hitting them.

Ng CL (2616): Encouraging, reassuring, and committed to your success, the most important thing Mr Ng said was “We can train you, but only you can calm your heart.” He gave me visual cues to account for my eye issue and I enjoyed all 3 lessons with him.

Ong Chuan (6646): Mr Ong not only drilled my turning points and taught me his ‘eye toggling’ trick, he also expanded my Chinese vocabulary… Jokes aside, he is dedicated, lively, and highly alert. He’s also taken 3 of my evaluations: 1.10, 3.10, and 4.01! He never promises to pass you, only ensures that when you do pass, you deserve it. He taught me to drive in morning peak hour traffic which I’ll always be grateful for. A day before my test, he took time out of his break to advise me.

Ong HT (6631): Beyond navigating sharp turns in the circuit, Mr Ong taught me that how we respond to a mistake is as important as correcting it. He had every opportunity and right to scold me when I made a terrible mistake. I would have accepted any and all rebuke from him. Yet, with patience and compassion, he gently corrected me and explained why I shouldn’t have made it. He is an example to all instructors.

Ho JF (6690): Terance Ho is one of the nicest instructors you’ll meet. Not only does he have god-tier vertical parking advice, he methodically broke down the parallel parking steps, making me get out of the car each time so I knew exactly what he was referring to. On my second last revision lesson, he kept encouraging me to be calm and decisive especially when moving off and changing lanes in challenging traffic.

Chan YL (6639): Mr Chan remembers each student by name and tracks their progress. He specially took time from his hectic schedule to give advice, reassurance, and comfort whenever he saw me before my test. He’s intent on not just getting courses, but getting TO the courses, right. Doing things safely and properly is his no.1 priority. He personally directed me to the TPDS room when I was lost at night. He challenged me with route 3 the first time he saw me during 2.10 because he believed in me.

Clement Chan (6658): He remembered me despite taking me only once. He always had my back, said hi to me every time he saw me, and when I passed my test, he let me know he was proud and to drive safely. Clement is humorous, engaging, and strict, everything an instructor should be. He may be young, but he’s proficient; more importantly, he was my friend.

Kee CH (6740): Adrian is calm, knowledgeable, and comforting. I never had anything but zen and chill lessons with him. He saw me first at lesson 6 (21 April) and he was there when I passed my big test (9 September). He re-taught me right turns upon seeing my hesitancy, remembered me though we hadn’t met in a month, and he’s always waved hello. Besides vigilance and everything else learners should employ, he highlights what NOT to do as a qualified driver. He is a big part of why I look forward to driving.

Lastly, Uncle James Tan (5904), Ang EC (6628), Iqbal (6776), and Lee ET (2571), thank you for teaching me once. James was warm and encouraging on my first ever lesson.

Thank you to warm up instructor Ng AH (2795) who also taught me 2.07 and 2.08. Slopes are the one thing I’ve never stalled on thanks to him and Mr Lee. Mr Ng’s warmup session ironically went much better than my test, which shows his reassuring manner. He found me after the test to check in too.

Thank you to Steve (6789) who had unwavering and steadfast belief in me. Steve would always say hi. He’s an extraordinarily patient instructor and I hope he scored high on his evaluation that day.

Thank you Instructor Hannan (6781) who was so chill, I drove a lot better towards the end. His message was to always be careful and keep yourself and others safe. He’s damn inspiring.

Thank you Hakim (6773), for introducing me to auto!

Apart from my G6007 instructors, these guys are the best of BBDC 🙂 Thank you again, all.
