Go to anybody who can fit your time. As long as they can pick and drop you as you wish, they are good enough. Anyway you been driving before so it's no big deal.

I did that when I had to brush up my Basic Theory when I converted long ago. ;) the Singapore specific numbers got me stumped like the bus lane, 7 pm to 7 am headlight rule and such ... went to a small school in Sims Ave, 3 lessons at my free time and I was good to go.

Yes, but perhaps it can be renewed? Health check or some admin renewal fee?

dude, nothing in the motherland remains "expired" ... you DO know that, right?

8-)

once done, all TP here needs to see proof of is that the licence was acquired at a time when you were in that country for 6 months or more at one stretch ... then you pass a theory test here and are good to go.

:D .....true Bigjohn :D ...yes.."motherland" is very magnanimous.. :wink: ..but must let you know that this would be the least of my problems. I am going to Qatar to work and that's where my future employer wants me to drive.....and time is short for me now (with about 2 months to go to Qatar) to not only refresh my driving skills but also learn to drive on the "wrong side of the road" (compared to Singapore) over there :roll:

Not sure of this x9200 and I need to check.

Best Regards

just one rule you must never forget while living there ... in ANY situation between you and a qatari, YOU are wrong and he is right.

Simply put, be careful.
