I am a man with high standards and demand the same for the people around me. This includes my private driving instructors as well. I would be critical and take note of everything they taught in each lesson. I was constantly evaluating my private driving instructor – whether he is teaching me as fast as he can, or whether he just wants to drag the lessons so he can earn more money from me.
I think that most learner drivers in Singapore do not evaluate their Singapore private driving instructors. Most learner drivers are timid to question the private driving instructors. There is a common mindset that the teachers will always be right and the students cannot ask anything much. Otherwise, it will be seen as a rude gesture. This common mindset enables some of the private driving instructors to take advantage of the leaner drivers over time. As long as you feel that there is something weird going on about the instructor, you should consider changing your instructor.
It is easy to change your private driving instructors in Singapore. Simply find a private driving instructor agency and let them match you up with a private driving instructor. There are usually no service charges for their services. You can find one of them here – Sglearntodrive (https://plus.google.com/+Sglearntodriveofficial). Contact them via email or phone SMS, and they should get back to you within a day. Expect to be matched up with a new driving instructor within 3 days. However, during busy periods, this could take up to 1 to 2 weeks. One benefit of using these agencies is also because of the waiver of registration fees for subsequent driving instructors should you want to change instructor. If you approach the instructors yourself, you will be paying the registration fee each time you switch instructor.
Remember, do not short-change yourself. You deserve a good private driving instructor.
