Yep, Aussie citizen. It's 100 hours, but my parents are happy to fake the last 50 hours as they agree that the increase is horrible.Matney wrote:Where are you a citizen? I have no idea, some of regulars members may I'm sure, but I would think it would be easier to get your license in your home country. I take it this would be your first license as you mention the driving hours needed in the beginning. Not sure how you got it down to 50 hrs though. My son mentioned 100 hrs(?) when he was thinking of this, but I know if you wait until you are older, the hours reduce.
You'll do well in Singapore, will fit in perfectly.frenzal wrote:........but my parents are happy to fake the last 50 hours ...........
I have differing circumstances. I had done many hours before my license expired (close to what was expired). Redoing what would be a total of over 130 hours sounds a bit of a stretch.Matney wrote:Its sad listening to the upcoming generation with attitude like this. Obviously this new ruling was put into effect for everyone but yourself. Yup, Singapore will do you FINE!. . . my parents are happy to fake the last 50 hours. .
I think I might go for an Aussie license, after all. The irony is that I won't be driving in Singapore, I just want a license just in case.Matney wrote:I never had a license in Singapore, didn't need one as we didn't have a car, but I would think if you have already lost your license for whatever reason, you would need to let whatever country's licensing bureau know that little bit of information. I don't know the circumstances behind your lapse of the expiration of license, but I again am assuming that it would be like starting back to square one.
No generation is perfect, neither was mine or was I. Sorry for that, still sad though that as adult your parents are willing to lie for you.
Yes, but only my dad drives and he is always out and about, thus he can't supervise me. Similarly, I doubt my friends would let me use their carspositano wrote:You don't have to spend money for the additional 50 hours worth of lessons. You could ask someone with a full licence eg. a relative or friend to supervise those additional 50 hours. Therefore there would be no additional cost to you and your parents would not have to lie.
