Driving Malaysian car in Singapore with international license

Postby ribenzo » Wed, 11 Apr 2018 10:22 pm

Hello,

I am from Europe, my girlfriend is Malaysian and Singapore PR. I have an international driving license. Her uncle lend us his car, registered in Malaysia. Am I allowed to drive that car from Malaysia into Singapore?

Thanks

You can, she cannot.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

Also there's no such thing as an international driving licence. It's called an international driving permit and is nothing more than a multi lingual certification of your actual drivers licence. You must have both on you if asked by a traffic cop. A lot of people lose their driving licence and think they can getaway with just using the permit but cannot.
