hi, i am a private driving instructor near woodlands ssdc. i am very experienced and i teach class 3a.


I'm Soon Kiaw Guan, you can call me William. I'm fluent in English, Mandarin and Hokkien. I was born in 1957.

I've been giving private driving lessons since 1977. I used to run a small driving school, Robin Driving Centre, in Toa Payoh, Singapore. I drive a Nissan Sunny.

My ex-students describe me as a reliable teacher with no temper. I'm confident I can help you pass your driving test.


i charge $32/hr. i teach 365 days a year, between 0600 & 2359. no peak hour surcharge. free pick up in woodlands.

Why Private?

ALL driving schools in Singapore are private schools

Contrary to popular believe, schools like Woodlands SSDC are privately held. They have better passing rate because their students take more lessons than needed. Their test dates are earlier as schools preemptively book test appointments before students' enrollment. The Singapore government does not run these schools.

When it comes to actual driving lessons, learning from private instructors is the better choice because:

  • Private instructors are with you every lesson and can tailor lessons to suit your progress
  • Private instructors have a lot more experience than schools' young instructors
  • Private driving instructors have flexible schedules
  • Private driving instructors charge less than schools
