Converting UAE license to Singapore license

Post by mohamed66 » Sun, 31 May 2020 11:18 am

Hi Friends,

I’m holding a UAE driving license(Automatic) issued in 2015 and is valid until 2025. Recently I moved to Singapore on a LTVP and currently working here. I want to Convert my license to Singapore one. I’m not sure where to begin and I can see different types of license here like 3, 3A and so on.

Which one should I choose ?

And do you think I should undergo driving classes here ? Please suggest

I am curious. How is it, with all the airlines shut down, that you are saying you recently moved to Singapore but yet you are posting from a Dubai ISP? In answer to your question, however, you can only get a 3A IF they allow a direct conversion. You may, however, be required to take a written test.

Recently in the sense, I moved last January. I have Created this account when I was in Dubai and not sure about the ISP settings. 3A means Automatic Transmission driving license ?

Correct. You are not eligible for any other type of license without taking relevant driving course/exam.
