Question about 18yo getting a drivers license

Post by The Ref » Thu, 22 Aug 2019 10:28 pm

My daughter is 18 and has been doing her license training in Australia. She will be taking the test in Aus at Christmas time.
To get her more hours, I was thinking of signing her up for a learners (PDL) here so she can get some practice.

My concern is if she has a PDL, when she gets her Aus license will she be able to convert it to a Singapore license if she has started the lessons here?

Does anyone have experience with similar?

Yes, once she gets her Aus licence, she can then convert it to Singapore licence.

There isn't any problem due to she learning in Singapore.

So to confirm - starting the process in Singapore wont impact the conversion?

I only want her to get some extra lessons but if that stops the conversion that would be a major pain

You can call one of the driving centre to check:

There is no reason for BTT and practice lessons to impact the conversion.
