i did my lessons via Capt Jon Lum hp 97111411 normally it takes 2 days theoretical and 1 day practical, but can go faster if you have a bit of experience.
Than after that he will make appointment for your exam,
you will have to answer 30 questions by computer and need to have 26 correct to pass!!!
Once you pass there than you go upstairs to ask for your practical testdate, this will be on a saturday and is allways at the Polymarina, next to RSYC.
There are 3 sessions per saturday, with 3 boats and each session 4 people, you go per 2 in a boat and and switch turn, after that they will also ask you some questions one to one. I had to wait for a month to do so after my theoretical...
hope this helps, any questions pls ask
best regards and good luck,
How much did you invest from start to finish?
all together some 400 SGD, lessons theoretical, practical, exam fees, and refreshment practical before test and its all worth it!

Importing Boats

Post by tonyc » Fri, 20 Feb 2009 1:58 am

I'm in the process of relocating from Montreal to Singapore. I'd like to have a boat over there. Could somebody please talk me through the process or point me towards a helpful website ?

I have a 20ft bayliner, which i'm thinking is probably too small for the ocean. However, would appreciate thoughts on:
- Should I import my boat or buy a new one in Singapore ?
- If importing, what licensing/taxes do I need to consider ?
- Where can I keep the boat ? Are there accessible marinas ?
- What else do I need to know about owning a boat in Singapore ?

Thanks in advance.

Hey NC30, I noticed that you posted a boat Captain's name? its not private right? I mean.. it kind of sounds like I can pass easier with him.. chuckles, Cos I hear it is really really hard to pass.. some of my friends came back with their tails down, and thats even with 2 years experience with driving power boats in the Navy! Am interested too, but terrified!

Hi
I've heard around that the practical test is pretty harsh. Is that really true?

I'm thinking of signing for a PPCDLL course but I wonder if it's really possible to get it after a reasonable training, which means the usual full day practical training.

The practical is hard only if you're totally new to marine and boating, yeah, it'll be hard, only if you get past the even harder theory test!!! Only after passing theory, can you take the practical.
I've heard peers fail because they forget minor details like checking for a dustbin on the boat.. wat the world...

Failing will be more than just a dustbin...
but i agree, you really must go by the book on the practical test,
and voice out loud (very important) all your checkings and intentions, to the instructor. You allways can go and have a look on saturday afternoons, at the polymarina, you can see the practical tests,
it gives you an idea how it goes.

RULE#1
go BACKWARDS out of the marina... try to turn out and you FAIL!!

Good luck.

Hey, I was planning on sailing my boat to Singapore and I just ran into the regulation that you need either class-b ais or some other device.

Any idea if that will apply to a newly arrived boat? Where should I look to find out about the regulations?

What gov. agency?

hi all,

Interested with this PPCDL ,but don't have idea on how to use the license after exam. I don't have my own boat, and don't have a plan to buy it in near future.

Is there other way to use this PPCDL without have to buy the boat ? Rent maybe ? Or some people joining for a small trip and rent a boat.

Boat licence

Post by nurrshahidna » Sun, 10 May 2009 7:13 pm

Hi,

Well, i am taking my PPCDL now. Waiting for my theory test date. I was initially pondering what I was going to do with my PPCDL but it made me realise that there is a whole world out there to discover with the boat licence. I will be renting and my instructor gave the contact number of a boat owner who rents out his boat. With the PPCDL, we can rent a boat for gatherings filled with fun in the sun and sea. Plus, it motivates me to strive to buy my own boat soon.

Anyone game to join me when i rent a boat once i pass?

Cheers.
Looking for new friends to have great fun and hang out.
