Any tips for passing the test, other than the obvious (read the book)?

It really isn't rocket science.  Read the book!  There are a number of different versions of the test handed out to you & your fellow examinees so no-one can definitively tell you what will be on the test.

Took me less than 10 minutes to complete (they give you 1 hour) and (of course) I passed.

Queuing for licence exchange took longer!

if you come from the Uk then the test should be a peice of cake, if you from another country then some of the signs have slightly different meanings, reading the book is fine but it is really common sense

The test will ask more about the implication of a sign as opposed to the direct definition. So a "bend ahead" sign will prompt a question about what you should do or be aware of when you see the sign.....slow down etc etc.  You need to study the book in photographic detail and be able to answer it word for word - beware the Singlish!!!

Memorise the stopping distances for different speeds, and any other items that have specific numeric answers.

do a google search for the basic theory test and there is a website which offers examples of questions. It was so helpful. The questions they ask are the EXACT ones they ask on the test.

How come the answers are exactly the same?  My husband and I had completely different tests (there are many versions!)

The on-line practice will help but you need to do more than learn the answers to these examples!

I said the online example questions were exactly the same as the real test. My husband and I had different tests. We studied the book too, just used the online tests as practice for the real thing!

You can buy a separate book (Borders or any bookstore) that has 200 questions and answers that and it pretty much covers all the questions you could be asked.

Was v valuable and I breezed through after studying it.
