Bad experience. basically boon seng does not reply to whatsapp and you have to call him to get your schedule and even when u call he will be like "ok msg me ur timings" AND DOESNT FUCKING REPLY. even when i am with him physically and asked to book my slots he will tell me to call him after or leave a message like WHAT isn't it easier if i tell you now. and surprise surprise he doesn't reply you after. additionally when i try to book for the next month's slots he will tell me to call again next week and when i do he will be like THERES NO MORE SLOTS LEFT like wtf. that's why i called u last week u dumbass and now u tell me there's no slots cos i'm late to book????? and also the driving experience is MEH. just drive main road left right. i'm into my 14th lesson and have only parallel park ONCE. and they are always changing instructor. there was one Mr Ong who DOZED off while i was driving and is not even aware that i'm driving with one hand. doesn't teach me any parking whatsoever. BASICALLY BAD. DO NOT LEARN WITH THIS INSTRUCTOR

Taught by mr Ng (LBS) for a year all he taught was "left 2 lound, light 2 lound" for that 1 year i thought my driving skill is fabulous! Until lim boon seng himself called me & said mr ng resign & i got a new intructor called mr lee. He's good. Teaching me all the things mr ng did not teach me. I was lost for words when lim boon seng suddenly told me i hv a circuit this particular afternoon whereas he has been avoiding my request for circuit for months. He charged $109 for it & i heard it is super expensive. Been driving jazz with both mr ng & mr lim and suddenly upon circuit lim boon seng get me to drive a honda model that is extremely huge like the taxi toyota prius we hv in purple. I told him countless times i can't switch cars last minute and he book a test for me the following month.in that 2 weeks left i only manage to drive twice in the circuit ($109 ×2) on seperate events & guess what?50points just like 1 of the previous guy who posted few reviews b4 me. He is terrible. The list goes on & on. But why bother to know more when he already hv more than 10 worst review ever

Well in a nutshell? he sucks.He only cares about money, eating his fried wings and scolds you for something you don't know. Then he'll ask you why you never do this? Well fuck you sir,I asked you how to do it and you said I'll tell you afterwards. Total cunt.

Waste of money

Lim Boon Seng has a few instructors under his group. I was being assigned Mr Ng. He is a good instructor and patient in teaching. Quite a funny and jovial man but unfortunately his car is not registered with BBDC. My 1st lesson was with Lim Boon Seng (LBS) and subsequently all with Mr Ng. Out of a sudden, after I pass my FTT, he called me to inform me my test date to be the following week and he will be teaching me for the last few lessons. He did not bother to access me before booking my test date. I do not think he also bother to ask Mr Ng if I am ready. I think he is just out to earn my money. I only get to try the circuit for 2 times and test already. On my 1st time in circuit, he scolded me very harshly (including ARE YOU CRAZY OR WHAT?) as I do not know anything. He thought as if I have been in circuit for many times. He doesn't bother to teach me patiently, just ask me to do the courses on my own, while he is using his phone or laptop. The 2nd circuit training was worse. He was sleeping in the car! Then he started to play Slotomania (mobile game) and did not bother to see how I was driving and last minute instruction to turn. As he is the "boss", he always answer calls for appointment booking, sometimes call his other instructors. Basically he is just sitting there doing his own things. I have already failed twice and I do not want to waste any more money so I am going to change instructor who will be more focused in pointing out my mistakes and teaching me the right thing.

I was taught by Mohammed,referred to my Lim boon seng. Very bad experience. During the first few lessons he seemed nice, and will joke and talk to you. But because I was a bit slow at learning, He started to get a bit impatient and scold whenever you make a mistake, sometimes really harshly with vulgarities when he's pissed off. He's kind of impatient as well. I agree that he will ask you to run errands and keep using and talking on his phone or even doze off. There was once I asked him on something that I wasn't taught, then he scolded me saying how could I have not known this upon learning up till this stage. He can be a bit unreasonable at times. He scold more than he teaches, and usually I figure out some driving techniques myself by trial and error cos he doesn't seem to care. But sounds like the boss Lim boon seng isn't any better off. Equally busy with phone and paper and as impatient..

Worst of the kind

I have yet to seen such a horrid driver and I had to say they are unprofessional, if I had known that there is so much bad review I would had not suggested my son to take lesson from them. First it was scolding him stupid and pass rude remarks. First in my life to hear you pay to get scolding instead of teaching. That does not even ends, lesson that was booked did not turn up, sms or whats up that is send never reply and had the cheek to say it was not sent. Worst of the kind during lesson either the instructor is talking non stop on the phone or sleeping. The most terrible thing was getting my son to wait for the instructor to cut down some cardboard boxes people had thrown away so that he can bring home to sell. Seriously, I had not met such an unprofessional driving school which cost more than the market price. So I strongly discourage anyone who want to learn from them.

STAY AWAY

I was assigned an instructor called Mohammed by Lim Boon Seng. He is a completely useless instructor. He is constantly on his phone, never corrects your mistakes or gives you any tips (just brushes of all your questions with like a one word stupid answer). Complete waste of time and so unprofessional.

He seriously suck

I forgot to add, LIM BOON SENG doesnt reply my texts 80% of the time when I ask about bookings and all, how professional & he also turns up late, and when I was 5 mins late for his lesson because I had school, he called me and shouted at me on the phone saying " FASTER LA I WAITING SO LONG ALREADY " when i've waited for him for more than 15 mins multiple times.

WORST INSTRUCTOR EVER

Super bad. My first instructor was Mr Ng and on a 60km/hr road he made me go at 30km/h and i was road hogging. And he kept telling me to follow the white line when i drive when im supposed to be in the middle of the damn lane??! motorcycles always follow the white line, what if i hit them how? who's gonna get charged? M E. Nevermind, so i requested for a change in instructor (but also under LIM BOON SENG). so LIM BOON SENG decided to coach me himself. He is constantly on his phone when I am driving, so he cant even correct my mistakes when i make them, and IF he happens to put his phone down, he is VERY rude when he corrects my mistake oh and he even dozes off when im driving!! Furthermore, I texted him asking, if i were to book my TP now, when would it be available (because like for your FTT your earliest booking is about 2 months?) because I was then on school holidays so I needed to know how long I have to wait so I can gauge my time and plan my schedule too, BUT instead of answering my question, he went to book my TP. I had only started my practical driving for only A MONTH, how could I be ready when my test was about 2 weeks later? Oh, and LIM BOON SENG booked my first circuit only 3 days before my test.If you're wondering how i did for my test, I got 54 points and thanks to LIM BOON SENG I've wasted $300 on the test.

IF you're assigned an instructor named Muhammed by Lim Boon Seng, IMMEDIATELY ask for a change of instructor or simply find a new PDI. That instructor under him is simply useless and will waste your lesson time by asking you to drive him around to run his errands while providing no useful tips on driving at all. He falls asleep often during lessons as well.

DONT EVEN CONSIDER LIM BOON SENG DRIVING

I was taught by one of his instructor called Muhammad. He don't teach you how to pass your TP, he only teach you how to get the car moving, and don't even bother to teach you any techniques or passing tips or even the minimum that is required to pass your TP for example he dont emphasize on safety checks, when you dont check he would just keep quiet. Then you must be wondering what he is doing when he is sitting beside the student. He was busy eating, texting, making phone calls because he got a part time job as a car dealer, hence he was all busy making deals on the phone and only will tell you turn left or right, worst of all he would direct you to the places he want to go to meet his clients/dealer then make you park there and wait for 10 - 15 minutes. So what happens when he didnt teach much and you as a first time student bound to make mistakes? He would just SHOUT at your face, with all the insults and vulgarities. For example, "YOU BODOH ISSIT" , "GUN DU AH" , "NB ALMOST GOT INTO ACCIDENT YOU CB" , "YOU SCRATCH MY CAR YOU PAY". After that I changed 2 more instructor under him, even though they are better but still the same kind of attitude and dont teach you to be exam smart. One word of advice, when you see any instructors under LIM BOON SENG DRIVING CENTER, RUN!

LIM BOON SENG FAIL DRIVING SCHOOL

very rude and unprofessional. doesn't correct your little mistakes. was only brought to the circuit ONCE on the day of my TP test. throughout my lessons with him, he was either busy on his phone or his laptop. scolded me when i turned into incoming traffic, as i was unfamiliar with the circuit. failed my 2nd TP due to his vehicle unable to mount the ramp (despite me flooring the accelerator). only mounted up on my fourth try ( counts as immediate failure). doesn't bother to explain each station (especially the ramp) doesn't bother to book circuit lessons. accumulated up to 40+ points during my 2nd attempt. if you fail on the first try, he will help you book retest early. that is because he charges up to $300++ for retest and 1 hour of driving on road. oh and did i mention he doesn't bother to book circuit lessons for you? one of his instructors Muhammad (contact: 9374 9955, 9146 5469) ALWAYS consistently Arrives late and ends early. doesn't say anything and bring you to test route either. i have had nothing but bad experiences which left an bad aftertaste in my mouth throughout my 3month of driving lesson him. TL;DR version. AVOID HIM LIKE THE PLAGUE. this is coming from someone who got "cheated" close to $1k.

I was recommended by a friend to register with LIM BOON SENG Driving school to learn auto. It shouldn't be that bad since it's a referral. It turns out to be the worst decision I've ever made. How he runs his business - He hired several drivers and they are supposed to teach you till they think you are ready for the circuits and Mr Lim Boon Seng will take over for the circuit trainings. How do they assess your readiness for the practical? My guess - the no. of lessons you've went and the $$ they had made out from you. For 1.5 hr lesson, the rate is $53 and for circuit lesson, one needs to pay $85. I had only two circuit lessons prior to my test. It wasn't a surprise that I failed very badly as I was not properly taught, right from my first lesson. Mr Lim Boon Seng doze off and played with his electronic gadgets constantly during lessons. My last draw was after he failed to communicate to me on my circuit dates prior to my second test. I had sent him messages for a few months and he choose not to reply me until two days before my test. I cancelled my test booking as I was not ready to go for it. A very irresponsible driving instructor. To sum up, my advice to those who are desperate in finding auto private instructor, do your research wisely before making a decision. **Note: I've got my license after I've changed my driving instructor. It was a wise decision which I should have done long ago.

The worst driving instructor Mr. Lim Boon Seng

I have spent more $3000 learning from Lim Boon Seng yet ended failed twice very badly . Finally, I changed my instructor to Mr. Tan Kim Seong and I have passed the driving test with 8 demerit points. Mr. Lim boon Seng has very bad attitude in teaching .Beware of him everyone his intention is to make more money rather than help us passed the driving Test.

Eating cockroach more fun than learning with this PDI

Condescending, egomaniac, full of himself, unkind, uninterested. He has a very poor attitude and is completely unprofessional. Agree with some of the other comments about the PDI. He sends pictures of how to drive instead of teaching. During circuit, he is always on his phone. Instead of teaching, he criticise and never provide useful comments. Although I've never eaten cockroach, i'm sure the experience is more pleasant than being a learner sitting next to this PDI. He was recommended by a friend but I am absolutely sure I won't be recommending him to anyone. How he continues to teach is beyond me.

Learner Nightmare

Oh yes, Lim Boon Seng. Passed my TP on my 2nd try. Had only 4 circuit lessons just before my 1st TP. The 1st time I was inside the circuit, his attitude was horrible. Kept saying I didn't need to know the circuit well to drive properly inside. True but hey, I was still a learner and not an experienced driver. So how could you expect a learner to move around inside the circuit like a pro during 1st try? I had to keep pressing him to book some more circuit lessons and because my parking was so bad and I did miserably inside the circuit he had no choice but to book more. I think because I flared up at him that's why he got a little scared. I only took lessons from him during the last month before my 1st TP. I got a shock of my life as I never expected a driving instructor to be so rude, unsympathetic and unwilling to coach proper techniques. Hell, he didn't even look where I was driving! Whole time in the car on his phone, texting, on his laptop! Only knew how to shout, scold and insult whenever I made a mistake, especially parking. His other instructors Mr. Ng and Mr. Tan were very good but unfortunately they couldn't bring me inside the circuit to learn parking. I failed my 1st TP because of parking inside the circuit! My TP tester was a much kinder person and I actually learnt a few key things during my test rather than during Mr. Lim's lessons!!! Anyways, he seemed to feel guilty so when I failed my 1st TP, he quickly booked for me another TP date. And as for circuit, he managed to book 1 the day before my 2nd test and 1 more on the day of my test. I passed that 2nd test but I felt it was my own effort and none from him. He didn't even really coach me. Can you imagine a driving instructor whatsapped you pictures and instructions on how to park??? And expected me to learn from those pictures?!!! If like that also can then why we bother to pay them for what?? Might as well just send us instruction manual will do!!! So pissed! They key thing for me was the circuit. And kept telling me no slot when he was supposed to have booked in advance knowing jolly well my TP date was about 1 month away. How could he expect to book circuit slots at the last minute when we were competing with BBDC's own students?? Common sense! This guy had no heart in ensuring his learners pass test on 1st try. Very poor attitude, extremely rude and ever ready to dish out verbal abuse whenever the learner made a mistake. Avoid this instructor at all cost. Mr. Ng and Mr. Tan were very good but unless they are not reliant on Mr. Lim to book circuit or use his car for TP, I would strongly advise any learner to go to BBDC to learn. Private instructors are really by luck. Not all are bad I'm sure but you don't want to waste your time and money to try.

He is flexible, reliable and proficient. However, his pick up points are not very convenient and also cost more money to take test under him.

I want to warn everyone here about LIM BOON SENG DRIVING SCHOOL. The fees/ session are a little more expensive. The enrollment fee of $100 is more than the rest. The service (from his assistant) is fuxk up. Most importantly, you will be receiving ONE or MAX TWO circuit training prior to your TP. Not to mention, my booking was messed up several times. I waited at Gombak for 15 minutes only to realise my booking was not recorded. I missed out several lessons as my booking was not recorded. ( I have sms evidence.) I received calls saying I did not turn up when I DID NOT book.
