The law was changed in 1999 raising minimum legal age to drive to 18. Before that, it was 17.

Guest,

how long will you be staying in Singapore? If more than 12 months, sad to inform you that you have to convert to Singapore licence within the 12 months to be able to drive in Singapore.

Regards
JT
