Uncle can be very quiet at times for the entire driving session. You really have to ask him what are your mistakes and what areas you need to improve on. He will tell you that if you never cancel the lesson 2 days in advance, he will still collect the money from you. But, I have several experiences from him whereby he cancel 1 day in advance or on the day itself and fail to allocate another closer date for me. He will sometimes arrive late but still release you off early. Most of the time, he will end the class 3-7 minutes earlier, didnt quite like that. He will not apologise to you if he come late or release you early. For booking for circuits, you need to tell him in advance (2 weeks), but sometimes he will still forget to give it to you. I have one instance whereby when I got on the car, he told me that he is going to extend the driving session for 0.5h (which he didnt tell me beforehand), but I kindly rejected that. I cant bring myself to deny that he did give me the feeling that he is a money-sucker, who just want to earn more from you. He charged $36/h regardless of peak/non-peak period. Normally, private instructor charges $34/h, but I got the excuse that his car is a relatively newer car, so I have to pay more for it. (You can choose to believe it or not, but it is still a fact that he did charge higher pricing). However,I still gave him 2 stars because he is really patient (or you can say heck-care in a negative light) and never scold you for your mistakes. Finally,I failed my 1st driving practical with a demerit point of 48!!!!but passed the 2nd test with a demerit of 10. By the way, I was learning Manual from him.

Worst Instructor ever

He doesn't teach. Just kept mum throughout the whole lesson. Typical $$$ bloodsucker. Starts on time(sometimes) and ends earlier than the stated timing. Learning fee is expensive. Higher than market rate. In case you guys don't know it is $34 irregardless of which day and time. TP was $332 in total including warmup without circuit. No guidance at all from him. Just drive, if you make any mistakes he will correct you. But you really have to ask otherwise he will just remain silent throughout the lesson. And every lessoon is repetitively the same. Unreliable. Advisable to go for school for those who wish to learn more.

The stats don't lie

Nice, patient, systematic, but tends to lead you on too much, even when you are about to take the exam, e.g. telling you when to exit a junction, when to change lanes. As a result, I still have very poor judgement. I was very lucky to have passed the practical (1st attempt 30 pts, 2nd attempt 18 pts) and the tester also commented that my driving was not very skillful. Even though I passed, I think I wouldn't dare to drive in future. Choose him if you are very confident that you are talented in driving. 26% first time passing rate honestly doesn't seem like a misrepresentation of his teaching ability.

Patient and Experienced

Passed my driving test this morning. Mr Goh is very patient and experienced. There are many instance that I knew he was angry, but never once he scolded. He is also systematic in his teaching where he "drills" the steps into his students. However, I do agree with the previous comment that you need to ask him about your weak areas and ask him to work on those. Else, he may end up not telling you. Overall, I am glad to have him as my instructor and I will definitely recommend him to my cousin and friends who are looking for PDI.

Definitely will not recommend to anyone

He scolds unreasonably and doesn't teach well

Good

Very alert & teaches properly. Encouraging as well. But make sure to ask him your weak areas and keep asking him if you can work on those. If you don't ask, he won't tell you. But overall I feel safe learning from him and he doesn't scold, just correct(:

Good but naggy
