I have recently convert my Malaysia driving license to Singapore driving license during Covid19 period.For expat or permanent residents who posseses a driving license from your home country like myself here, you can do you conversion based on the following steps below. But do take note that any foreigners who are above 18 years old and hold a valid work/dependant/student pass are allowed to drive in Singapore with a foreign license less than a year. But all Singaporeans and Singapore Permanent Residents musth have a valid Singapore driving license to be eligible to drive in Singapore.
Here are my steps on how to convert my foreign driving license recently:
NOTE: This is only applicable if you got your foreign driving license before you obtained your Singapore Permanent Resident status.
Step 1:
Pass your Singapore Basic Theory Test (BTT)
You need to register at one of the 3 driving centres in Singapore for the basic theory test:
Singapore Safety Driving Centre
Address: 2 Woodlands Industrial Park E4, Singapore 757387
Telephone: 6482 6060
Bukit Batok Driving Centre
Address: 815 Bukit Batok West Ave 5, Singapore 659085
Telephone: 1800 666 8888
ComfortDelGro Driving Centre
Address: 205 Ubi Ave 4, Singapore 408805
Telephone: 6841 8900 / 6848 0617
Due to current Covid19 situation, you will need to visit the respective website to make an appointment to go down to book for the Basic Theory Test (BTT). Once the appointment is fixed, head down to the driving centre on the scheduled date to book a date for your test. The administrative fee charge is S$5 and the test is S$6.50. They will issue the receipt and included the appointment date on it as well. Keep it well as you need to bring along on the test date.
You can get the Basic Theory Book from Popular Stores retailing at S$6.00 or the Question Book at S$8.00
P/S: The theory test result is lifetime and there is no expiry date. I passed my test in 2015 and I just converted my license in 2020. The driving centers and traffic police system will have it registered in when you provide them with your NRIC to check the status.
Step 2:
Attain the Abstract from Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan Malaysia (JPJ)Once you passed your theory test, you need to obtain the letter from JPJ.Here is the sample of the letter issued by JPJ and this letter only valid for 6 mths from the date of issue. Thus, make sure you get your conversion done within the period.
For JPJ in Johor Bahru, head down to the office located at Taman Daya and it is said that the letter costs RM10.00 ~S$3.33 and payable at the counter. Please make sure you keep the receipt because it is required during the later stage.
Due to the pandemic and I am unable to go back Malaysia to obtain the letter, I approached a runner to assist me on this. All I need to do is to provide him my scanned copy of Malaysia IC & Driving License and he will settle for me. And during this tough period, it took quite a while for him to obtain the letter and I made arrangement to courier the original copy to Singapore. The fee for the runner to obtain the letter is RM150.00 ~S$50.00 include the courier charges to Singapore. If you can provide him with original copies, the fee will be lower though.
Update 12 January 2021: Due to extended MCO in Malaysia, the process to obtain the JPJ letter will be longer due to the reduced of manpower in JPJ (only 30% working from tomorrow onwards) and restriction matters. Thus, the runner shared that it will take a longer period to obtain the letter now. He would be charging RM200.00 to secure for express lane and avoid missing documents.
Update 20 January 2021:
Step 3:
Apply for Conversion at Traffic Police Department
Once I got the letter or they called it Abstract from JPJ, you need to prepare the following documents before heading to Traffic Police Department located at Ubi Ave 3.
Here are the documents required to bring along for conversion:

Original and a photocopy of your passport and NRIC/Entry & ReEntry Permit/Employment Pass/Dependant Pass/Social Visit Pass/Work Permit

Original and a photocopy of your valid Qualified Foreign Driving Licence

Processing fee of S$50.00 (Cashcard and NETS payment Only)

One matt finish passportsize colour photograph with white background.

For Malaysian licence holders, an extract from JPJ Malaysia showing information of your driving record and licence information
And lastly, fill up the Conversion Form (Pink colored) once you arrive at the Traffic Police entrance lobby. And of course, do get a queue number upon entering the building.
Do ensure that you get all your documents ready especially the Entry and Reentry Permit documents. I made two trips down because missing these 2 documents. The entry permit is important because they need to see if you obtain your driving license before or after you became Singapore Permanent Resident.Once all set, NETS payment of S$50.00 required on the spot for the processing fee. They do not accept cash payment. The officer will then provide the temporary slip for you and you are eligible to drive in Singapore now.
The physical driving license will mailed to your mailing address stated in the form in 10 working days.
For Singapore Citizens and PR, the new Singapore Driving License will be valid for life and there will be no need for any renewal.
TIPS:Β (a)Β If you are converting to Singaporean but yet to convert your foreign driving license on time, fret not. You need to prepare the documents as mentioned above and also additional documents including your rennouncation letter from Malaysia Embassy, letter from ICA after u submitted your rennouncation and also the warranty letter stating your nationality.
(b) If you obtain your driving license after you got Singapore Permanent Resident, the conversion procedures will be different.
For more detailed updated information on Traffic police and driving license you can check the traffic matters here or call them to find out more.
This is purely based on my driving license conversion journey experience. Any new updates, please check with the respective authorities for better understanding.
[Update Dec 2020]
I received feedback and enquiries that most people are converting the driving license to prepare for their conversion of Singapore citizenship. You can refer to my post here about the whole process of conversion and things to take note. Hope this helps everyone!

Hi Canny
Yes they need to see the original copy to verify with the photocopy before they proceed. Actually, you can try the customer service and check if they are okay with the photocopy ones before you do down.
I think the Entry permit they issued after you got PR is in soft copy now. Unless your approved PR was years back in yellow copy which is the original copy. Hope this helps…

Hi Michelle
you might need to go through the usual process of acquiring a driving license in Singapore than converting a foreign one if you got your license after getting PR. I saw it somewhere before so I think it is better for you to call Traffic Police dept to double check.
Do share if you have further information. I can update the post to share with the rest.

Thanks for sharing the procedures for converting Malaysian driving license to Singapore.
Would like to check with you for the eappointment with driving centres, we shall choose ‘other services’ and head down to the counter and book for BTT test right? I.e: no need to choose the ‘foreign license conversion’ and enrol the full course.
https://info.bbdc.sg/visitorappointment/#
Thank you.
Hi Lee
I did it years ago before Covid19 but my sister recently did it. She opt for others and book for the appointment. There is a remark column when you book it and you can write that you are applying for BTT test for conversion.
Hope this helps…

Hi Hazel,
I want to convert my driving license first before i apply for citizenship. Due to covid19, hard to go back Msia to get driving record. As u mentioned, BTT is lifetime once we passed the test. So is that mean i can take the test first, anytime i can do conversion later once i can go back Msia to get the driving record from jpj. Btw, can you share with me the runner contact no as well. thanks
Hi Caroline
Emailed you the details and my point of view. Since you are going to convert citizenship, I suggest you just get it done soon to avoid any future issues..
Hi Hazel,
Just to check if there is a colour blindness test during the license conversion process?
Thank you π
Hi Lee
Based on my understanding, if conversion no need unless you going to do the full cycle…
I see, thanks for your advise π
Hi,

Hi could you let me know what is required to ask another person to help us get the JPJ letter? was planning to get one of my family member to be the runner. Do we need to prepare an authorisation letter ?
Hi Ann
There is no authorisation letter needed when I asked the runner to get the JPJ letter. He is the authorised runner to handle Govt related stuffs..
if you are asking your family member, u Guess authorisation letter is required then.. you need to call them and double confirm to prevent waste trip
Hello!
Thank you for your post in this and it is really helpful.
Just want to ask if the runner mentioned JPJ ask for authorisation letter?
If not, can share your runner’s contact?
FYI: I asked my parents to help me to get it in KL with a runner and JPJ mentioned only owner/next of kin only can request for it.
So my parents ask me to prepare an authorisation letter.
I am converting my license as a 4 years of PR, will share with you my experience after I successfully convert it if there is any different procedure π
Thanks a lot!
Hi Michelle
The runner who helped me to get the JPJ letter doesnβt required my authorisation letter. He is from the authorised company that deals with government related matters. Emailed you the contact and hopefully can help you π

Would like to know if converted to Singapore driving license, could we still able to drive in Malaysia using Malaysia driving license ?
Malaysia driving license need to renew, but for Singapore PR no need to do the renewal…
Hi Chan
Once convert, we are only allowed to have 1 valid driving license.. so only can drive spore car by law.
So once the malaysia driving license expired after you convert, I donβt think we can renew anymore. Thatβs what I understand
Hi Hazel,
I am malaysian PR would like to convert to singapore license as well. Is it a must to make appointment online to go down to centre to book for the BTT test date? Or can online book for BTT test date?
The BTT test date availability is different across 3 driving centre?

Love the experience you are sharing on converting your driver’s license and also the process of renouncing citizenship (very tedious indeed!).
I think your runner can start giving you a commission for the amount of business you are referring to him, and just as well since with Covid, people do need the extra income! π
I also need your runner’s number and would appreciate if you could share. Many thanks.

Hi Hazel,
It’s a very good information you shared above. Thank you for that.
I thought I can keep my license before conversion so I asked my parents to renew it.
However, I read from above that our license need to be cancelled? Can you advise how this is done?
My parents told me that I will need to fill in and sign a form to get the abstract like yours and JPJ officer told them that my license will be taken back. The form even mentioned that my MY License will be “disenaraihitamkan”.
Does this sounds strange to you?
I see that the we need original and photocopied foreign license at the last part of the process of converting the license.
Can you please share me your Runner’s contact details?
Thank you very much and Happy New Year!
Hi Eugene
Emailed you π We can only have one valid driving license. So if you decided to convert, your Malaysia license will no longer be valid unless you surrender your Singapore driving license to LTA and show Malaysia side LTA letter stating your Singapore license cancelled.

It will state valid from when to when. Also can share the details of your runner? Appreciate your help. Thanks.

Hi Hazel,
Thank you for the informative sharing! By any chance do you know if we have to convert the Malaysian driving license strictly within 3 months after obtaining Singapore citizenship? I am already done with all the formalities but have yet to convert my driving license.
And may I also ask what is the warranty letter stating the nationality you are referring to in point (a) of Tips?
Thanks,
SY
Hi Sin Yee
Ya I saw in the website that you need to do so within 3 mths after conversion of citizenship.
You need to produce the documents stating that you already renounce and issued by Malaysia Embassy. Not sure which document but you can call traffic police to confirm. The officer told me that we can do so after convert Singapore citizenship. You just need those documents from Malaysia Embassy to show them.
Perhaps you can share further after you manage to convert.
Thanks π
Hi Hazel,
Thank you for the reply! I managed to find out that I will have to convert my license within 3 months after conversion of citizenship. May I also have the contact details of the runner?
