Trust me, i bet on my life you'll regret taking lessons with this instructor.If you're going to take auto lessons just sign up with the school. My friends spent a total of 1.7k with school and 2 TP tries while i've spent over 2.6k with this instructor and he still blames me for not booking enough lessons. This instructor only pretends to be nice for the first few lessons. Dishonest, makes you constantly book lessons and drive the same route at gombak for your WHOLE experience then try to squeeze everything else into your last week before TP. He will do anything to make you book lessons as he does not have many students due to his reviews.

INSTRUCTOR FROM HELL

Please note that this review is written in 2017. He pretends to be nice at first, then over the next few lessons shouts until you get into near accidents. he should be DISQUALIFIED as an instructor, people like him encourage road rage, do not allow proper learning, promotes laziness by coming late and leaving early and thinking that he can get away with it by giving a few dollars discount. He gossips about other students, so that he appears right. If any agency is reading this, please take action as I think no employer would want him to tarnish their good name. Many people have put engage him at your own risk, but I say that risk is not even worth it.

dont look for him

I really regret not checking this review site earlier because I have to say, my experiences are EXACTLY the same as the rest. Mr Ong is a really bad instructor. I wasted 20+ lessons with him because being a new driver, I really thought I was the problem, and hence his shouting/name-calling of me was ok.But as I've found from the site that he's doing this to every single student, i think there's something really wrong with him. In fact I have cried a few times during his lessons because I was so stressed, he kept saying derogatory things like "不要说是我教不好,是你自己很差!“/”我一看你就知道你驾车很差" if I don't react fast enough, but HELLO I'M A NEW DRIVER you can expect me to be good?? Oh yeah, and he says that multiple times to me every single lesson. EVERY. SINGLE. LESSON. If I were good I wouldn't have to learn??? and if I don't know what to reply him cos I know wtv I say he'll just scold me for it, he'll scold me for not replying as well and call me "你是耳聋还是哑巴“. Each lesson is supposed to be 1.5h, but he always ends 10mins earlier, CONSISTENTLY every lesson. In fact I have NEVER had the full 1.5h before. On top of all the verbal bullshit and eating up of my time, he's also always distracted during lessons, always snacking, chatting with others on the phone (like legit, chatting with his friends about plans after), watching videos on his phone, and even cutting apples to eat with a freaking knife while I'm driving. And none of these are one-off things, he did each one several times throughout all my lessons with him. He even fell asleep while I was driving once. I think that is really unprofessional behaviour. Worst of all, just like the other review, we just go round and round aimlessly for the past 20+ lessons, he really has no lesson plan. Even though we're doing the exact same things each lesson and I'm not making any new mistakes, he doesn't teach me new stuff either. Like I haven't learnt parking or tried circuit. I really think he's just trying to scam my money. All in all, just don't be an idiot like I was and find ANY OTHER INSTRUCTOR other than him.

Don't choose him.

If can I would like to give less then one star but sadly can't, he have changed his car to toyota white and his number remain the same. Don't recommend him. After my 3rd lesson with him today I've decided to change instructor all he do is scold scold instead of explaining he demand you to reach his standard in your 2nd lesson. The only time when he have a good tone is when he ask you when you want for your next lesson. He will just keep scold you makes you nervous and makes you feel weird sitting in the car while driving slowly the mistake will come up due to it.

Ridiculous/waste of money

he is the most unprofessional instructor there is. extremely rude and abrasive. overreacts and shouts every few minutes. there is no proper lesson plan. he just gets you to drive round and round without moving on to teach you parking techniques, circuit tests. wasted 11 lessons and he just says if you are not happy just stop learning from me... completely terrible attitude... just a waste of money!!!!!!

Mr Ong is an impatient teacher and he does not put in effort in ensuring you understand the basics. For the first two lessons, he did the steering for me when I had to turn. As such, I was unable to gauge how much to turn subsequently and thus got shouted at. Subsequent lessons became dreadful as he became contradictry in his scoldings. He could scold me for being too slow at 30km/hr but too fast at 40km/hr. He enjoys asking 'why why why' when you make a mistake And has two set responses. If you give him a reason, he will mimic your voice, jeer at your 'incompetence' and shame you for even giving him a reason. If you do not give him any reason, he will angst that he is too tired of picking on your faults and that you will be doomed to be a bad driving. Therefore, i suggest that if you are serious in wanting to learn how to drive and you cannot tolerate bad attitude from your teacher, do find an alternative. I found him through LeDriving and i will never recommend the agent to any of my close friends.

DO NOT ENGAGE THIS PDI

Firstly , I would like to mention he don't even deserve a one star rating. Engaged him through an agent called Le driving, after that went online to see reviews about him, saw bad reviews posted by others during 2009 times , hence thought it was so long ago and maybe he might change for the better so gave him a chance to teach me and I just gave it a try, first lesson everything was still ok still fine seems chatty and good , (mind you agent states that if you wanna change an instructor you have to change after first lesson otherwise gotta pay another enrollment fee) so probably this might be the reason he is acting on the first lesson. Second lesson onwards , he slowly start scolding , he doesn't go into details when teaching and just briefly say out what should be done and all without even teaching it properly, ask 1 time he explains but second time still unsure he starts raising his voice , no patients at all, eat during lesson, end lesson super early , still asked me to stop by and he went to buy newspapers and chat with his friends ,kept on scolding non stop, when you make mistake and he keep question why why why, and you do not know what to do and just keep quiet he will just scold you and say Aiya don't want say already la, say already also no use , not happy learning with me go find another instructor , no instructor will even want to teach you. Oh so he is stating his so good so patient ? Definitely not . went for 7 lessons with him , he wasted my time and money, kept asking me drive around , keep saying my driving not good and all , aft passing FTT told him I want to speed up and learn faster to go for TP faster , he just refuse to teach me other things yet stating that I still can't drive well. oh and remember I mentioned he said I was bad at driving and no instructor would even want to teach me ? Haha sorry but I got to say no the problem lies with him. How can I be so sure ? Because when I cannot take it anymore so annoyed by him feeling that I'll slap him anytime if I continue learning from him. I decided to stop going for his lessons and just take up another PDI and change to SSDC instead. My new PDI is super good for sure 100 times better than BENSON ONG HOCK CHAI LIGHT BLUE HONDA JAZZ 2208 . My new PDI , on first lesson he get me to tell him everything why I change PDI and all, he need to know my back ground before knowing how to teach, he let me drive around for the first lesson in order to see how well I drove , my new PDI has 41 years of teaching experience and is really good , he is very specific in teaching , he is funny and chatty , he is really good , on second lesson with him he taught me directional change and told me that I was a fast learner and that he taught me once and I know how to do it already, and so on third lesson with him , he taught me vertical parking and train it together with the directional change and once again he too said I learn fast and will proceed to learn parrallel parking on next lesson. He even told me that my driving skills was ok, i could manage oil and brake well. He mentioned he have seen worst students and that he too does nag at student who are really too poor , and help them to improve . He too is very shock on why BENSON ONG keep says my driving is not good and does not want to teach me other stuff . Now I've proved BENSON ONG wrong because he once said my driving not good and no instructor will want me . Sad to say I can go in circuit very soon after I picked up parrallel parking ! I'm glad that I've changed PDI, luckily to a 100 times better one . I do regret not changing earlier and ended up wasting my time and money for 7 lessons with BENSON ONG.to BENSON ONG don't even look down on your students , you don't even look like a PDI! Sorry to be harsh but he really tested my patients , you guys can go ahead and give it a try and you will know why I'm so pissed ! WILL NEVER RECCOMEND HIM! He is too much!

Avoid this instructor!

WTF is with this instructor. scold scold scold. Every word from him is vulgarities. Start lesson at 7, he went smoking.smoke until 7.15. always end class at 7.45. One hour lesson become 30mins lesson. Damn pro seriously. Avoid him or his car plate number SJM2208 Honda Jazz.

*AVOID THIS PDI*

DO NOT ENGAGE this private 3A instructor BENSON ONG Hock Chai (Light blue Honda Jazz) I got him through an agent LE DRIVING. He appears to be friendly and approachable on the first lesson but second lesson onwards you will start to see his true colours. His teaching attitude is just horrible beyond words and he tends to criticize your mistakes so badly by shouting at you every single lesson to the extent that you feel like slapping him. He keeps on harping on your mistakes throughout the entire lesson which makes you extremely nervous on the road. When you tried to correct it by asking questions, he doesn‘t even explain it thouroughly but simply briefly telling you what he expects to see. He does not have the patience and passion to teach at all. At once, he even blasted his Hokkien songs during the lesson, and ate his lunch in the car WHILE TEACHING YOU. If you repeat your mistakes, and he got tired of scolding, he won‘t patiently correct it again but simply keep quiet, hard brake suddenly and turn the steering wheel for you, without knowing where you went wrong. There isn‘t any lesson planning at all, and he‘s just an impatient old crude that is eager to end the every lesson quickly. (ENGAGE HIM AT YOUR OWN RISK)
