With effect from 16 December 2019, all Class 2, 2A, 2B, 3 or 3A learner motorists  are required to complete driving or riding simulator training before they are allowed to book their Practical Driving or Riding Tests. This is part of the Traffic Police’s continual efforts to help learner motorists better prepare for various road situations, and to inculcate good and safe driving habits in them.
The simulator training provides learner motorists with the opportunity to practice defensive driving or riding in a safe and controlled environment. The scenarios used in the training are based on the top 10 causes of traffic accidents that often result in injuries, which include high-speed expressway cornering, cyclists in blind spots, and driving or riding in wet weather conditions.
The simulator training comprises three modules. Each module takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. To fully benefit from the scenarios presented, learner motorists must have an adequate level of competency in controlling the respective class of vehicles which they are seeking to obtain a driving licence for. They would therefore have to complete a minimum of five practical lessons before booking the simulator training.
The simulator training is only available at the ComfortDelGro Driving Centre, Bukit Batok Driving Centre and Singapore Safety Driving Centre.
