is this for real?? I can't book a BTT conversion test online? In 2020!

So I just checked. Comfort Del Gro - I can't just walk in. I have to book an appointment just so I can book an appointment to take a test. Oh yeah, and they're all booked up for the next 5 weeks. Oh yeah, and then they can only show 2 weeks viability for their calendar.

Just to update you all ..

I have got my license converted now. Let me tell the procedure what I went through

I went to Traffic police with all the proofs I have like Passport, IC and Driving license. They gave me a pink form and asked me to get a driving confirmation letter from Indian embassy or BLS. Then I went to BLS and applied for driving confirmation letter where they charged me 55$ (45$ for the service and 10$ for couriering the document). After 5 days I got the document. Yesterday I went to Traffic police and submitted all the document along with confirmation letter and paid 50$.

They gave me a temporary license until the priginal is couriered over.

Thats it. Hope this helps for new users who would like to change.

Note: My indian driving license is quite old so they have asked me a confirmation letter, if my driving license have a barcode which is new one then they dont ask for any confirmation letter.

Thanks mohamed66

Can I check your BTT prior procedure as well?

You went to ComfortDelGro Driving Centre, tell them you want to take test only.

You opened an account - costs $11.50? They provide you username and password.
Book a test - costs $6.50?
Can open account and book test at the same time?

When was the nearest test date available?

$11.50 is for both account creation and test. They will give you username and password. You dont need to pay anymore for test. Just login and check the slot available for test and book it.
You cannot book test at the time of account creation since the account will be activated the next day.
