Girl Learns Driving Scantily Dressed

Does a girl dress scantily while learning driving just so that she can get into the good books of the driving instructor and subsequently the tester?

Rumors have it that a girl who dresses scantily gets scolded less by the instructor and finds it easier to pass the driving test. Are such rumors founded?


Private driving instructors are a dying breed as the government has stopped issuing licenses to such instructors. Eventually, when all private instructors have either retired or gone to meet their Maker, everyone who wants to learn driving must go to either Comfort Driving Centre (CDC)

or Singapore Safety Driving Centre (SSDC)

to do it. Anyone who wants to be a driving instructor can only work as one at either center.

I learned my driving from a private driving instructor and got my Class 3 license in October 1995 for only S$800+. I passed the driving test at my second attempt. A friend who introduced me to the same private instrutor earlier on passed his driving test at his first attempt and spent only around S$500.

There is no way anyone can learn driving and get his or her Class 3 license at either CDC or SSDC for such "small" sums of money. So if you have not gotten your Class 3 license yet and want to save some money by not going to a government driving center, seize a private instructor before they are all dead and gone.

Though I'm not certain nor sure, but when I was learning to drive, not every girls I saw did wear scantily, those that did, certainly had caused much 'distractions' to other learner drivers! Haha...

Taking driving licenses on government driving centres need more than $1000. They are harder to pass and more likely to fail. By retaking the driving lesson already surpassed $2000.

This is why I suggest renting a car out and drive by yourself in remote places and get a hand of it first.

Getting a licence to learn driving is quite the same as a licence to have high blood pressure and stress..LOL

Perhaps one should also learn karate or kungfu if one thinks of driving on our roads.

To Bored Dad: You're right. They are very distracting indeed.

To Lao Xing Zhou: Actually it's the government centers who always claim it's easier to pass if you sign on their package. Renting a car to drive in remote places? Getting caught is no small deal at all.

To Joepsc: Actually, there are many people who don't drive even after getting a driving license due to high costs of having car. For those who have never learned any form of martial arts before, carrying a steel rod inside their car for self-defence might be a good suggestion especially in places like Malaysia.

To save up cost, I start driving in remote places via rented cars before going on to the real cat testing.

To Lao Xing Zhou: You're very smart indeed. Looks like you're all set to pass your driving test on 1st try heh? By the way, are you going to take a Class 3 or Class 3A license?

I don't want to drive manual cars. So, Class 3A for me.

To Lao Xing Zhou: That would mean you won't be able to drive a manual car to save your ass during war time when only a manual vehicle is available. Of course, that is extremely highly unlikely to happen.
