British Driving License conversion.

Post by RimBlock » Mon, 26 Aug 2019 2:41 pm

Hi All,

Anyone had any issues converting an old UK paper (not photo) driving license to a SG license ?.

When I first looked in to it the website specified photo licenses could be converted. Having just looked again recently, the photo requirement for the foreign license seems to have disappeared.

Likely to have to do the BTT so starting reading up on that now.

Thanks
Without dialogues, if you tell them you want something real bad, you will get it real bad.

Yup like have to complete the basic theory test.

Will be lucky if there is no practical test.

Give them a call to ensure:

If you have to take the practical (driving) test, you'll need to to the whole class B training course.

License conversion regulations are specific. If they accept your license, you only need to pass the basic theory course. If they won't accept your license, you do the whole training course.
