Bad

★☆☆☆☆

Please don't waste your money. 1) He and his wife are really just interested in getting paid. Don't expect to get any useful help. Always make sure your "booking card" is correct to avoid getting scammed for fees. 2) He is one of the most egoistic person you will meet. Only what he says can be right. No counter statements please. Cos "he has decades worth of experience and knows everyone" that you don't have. 3) Never asks him questions unless you want to set his maniacal rant mode off. 4) Surfs facebook, doze off... Ask you to explain facebook posts to him aka suggest you drive dangerously. 5) He "knows everyone." He is "everybody's friend." You therefore must give way to everyone in the circuit. Don't piss people off by not giving way. Don't expect to have productive time unless you get the circuit when it's really empty. 6) In his maniacal rant mode, he will suggest that you are not a worthy driver, you are not good enough, you don't know your stuff. Overall, if you want to experience how bad can it get, you then should give him a try.

One of the cheapest rate for 1h 30 mins lesson, and the quality of teaching also very cheap. If you do not do it perfectly, it will ignite the flame in his heart and scold you like hell! That is the summary!

Bad instructor

He holds the steering wheel all the time and keep saying 'slow down' even you drive 20km and not many cars around. Nothing much you can learn. Even parking, he will hold the steering wheel most of time, never let you try to park by yourself and he presses the brake way too early. That means you lose to chance to learn how to handle the car. Never recommand.

Reponsibe and best instructor

I have read those reviews on my instructor. I totally disagreed with them. I have learner under a few years ago. He is strict but he will want to follow the up the all requirements by TP. As for those reviews are very unfair and untrue to him. I learn from him a few months never encounter such things. I will strongly recommended him to the new learner

Horrible

Is there no star rating? Would give him that if there is- he gloats on your failure and doesn't encourage you. Self proclaimed "nice instructor" but his actions differ. Please don't learn from this guy, he will never let you ask questions and he will condemm you for doing so.

My sentiments echo the ones of the 1 star reviews posted here. My entire time with him I felt so oppressed and frustrated, but because I was too cheap to change instructors, I managed to pass on my second try with this instructor, where it's only maybe 30% to his credit. He does not focus on safety rules at all, often asking me to cut lanes when it was unsafe because he had to rush back for his next lesson. The only reason I managed to pass was because I was learning manual previously and my previous instructor was a stickler for safety. He always distracts me when I'm trying to focus on driving, like talking rubbish or boasting about himself. He is so damn egoistic and thinks everyone is out to get him?! Worse is there were instances where he asked me to stop at the roadside just to help him type some stuff on Facebook. Wtf?! So damn unprofessional. Oh and when I failed my first driving test(which he pressured me into going even though I felt I wasn't ready), he was a real dick about it and even insinuated that I failed because I didn't pray enough. WOW. And the other commenters are right, he is a control freak and always steers, although what you're doing may be on the right track. He is also very temperamental. If he's in a good mood he praises you, if not he will act even more like an asshole than usual. Final thing that pissed me off the most was how he liked to make unwarranted, and often rude and dismissive comments about my life, and appearance. He also does this to random strangers we see on the road. Do NOT bother wasting your money on him (which he claims he has plenty of), and just learn at a driving school/source for a good instructor. Unless you are the kind that performs well under duress , then I'll recommend him. Boooooooo!!!

He will say other things that are not related to driving. Criticize everything you do wrong, you will feel worthless at the end of the lesson. Horrible ethics, making nasty comments about your family etc

Lousy instructor

Don't waste your money on him, he does not entrust you with the stering wheel! He will raise his temper frequently when he does not like something you does. Pay abit more, go for school instead.

Horrible Instructor

Horrible instructor that just wants your money. He wont tell you when you're ready for your final driving test, he will just keep sucking and sucking more money from you. Super boastful, doesn't trust you with the steering wheel. Keep shouting at you for every mistake you make, avoid this instructor at all cost

Very rude, judgemental, proud ETC

★☆☆☆☆

1) Rude. When I ask to clarify some questions, he would say that I'm crazy and would condemn me for the things I say. When I did something wrong, he would scold me for the next 15 mins, nagging and nagging at me. When I said a friend of mine experienced something bad during her practical test, he said that my friend didn't deserve to pass and scolded her for the entire lesson. (I was so tempted to crash his car into another, because what he said about my friend was way too much). 2) Judgemental & Proud. Every time when someone walks pass the car, he would say that's his student, and that he passed his practical with 1 try. Then there was once he said that the person is his student, but he was smoking, and then later on he said, that's not my student, my students don't smoke. (Like what?!?!) He always talks about how his students all passed their practical test in 1 try. He boasts about how good of an instructor he is. He always talks about how he lives in a terrace and his kids are all doing great things in life, earning tons of money. 3) I have no control over the car. I thought this was a driving lesson where he is supposed to teach me and not be in control of the car. But just like what many of the other reviews says, he constantly holds the stirring wheel and you have no control over the car. On top of that, he constantly brakes the car far behind the car in front during a red light before I get the chance to press the brake, the car just automatically stops w/o me doing anything. And this happens in every lesson single lesson, which is so frustrating. He also DOES NOT allow me to adjust the side mirrors. It's very frustrating because his side mirrors are always facing down (side mirrors facing downwards are only useful when parking), even when I'm driving on the road. He said I can just use the rear view mirror to check the back of the car, which up until today, I still do not understand why I can't use the side mirrors. Aren't I supposed to use all 3 mirrors? He scolded me for a full lesson when I adjusted the mirrors. 4) His assistant (wife). His wife is the contact person, if you wish to book a slot with Mr Pang. They have a process where you have to pay for the lesson before you attend, and it has to be paid 48hours before the lesson or it will be cancelled. And if you have already paid for the lesson and want to cancel it within the 48hrs of the lesson, your money WILL NOT be refunded. I understand that the reason for this process is to prevent lessons from cancelling too often. But lo and behold do they NOT HAVE ANY SYMPATHY OR EMPATHY. I had a high fever of about 40ºC the night before and I forgot to cancel my lesson, but the wife simply said,"No excuses." EXCUSES?!?! I DIDN'T KNOW HAVING A FEVER WITH 40ºC WAS AN EXCUSE. And as you have suspected, I did not get back my money nor was the lesson postponed, because of my 'excuse'. However, what was worse was that my friend was hospitalised exactly 2 days before the lesson, and they also did not refund/postpone the lesson at all. I really do not know if they are human beings. The wife even told me,"Postponing the lesson for you is not good for business." Right... Like me coming to lesson with a 40ºC fever would be good for business. What if I pass the virus to Mr Pang, then he can't even teach probably for the next 3 days. Me not coming probably just saved them 3 days w/o business because Mr Pang isn't sick and because I didn't come to lesson and pass him the virus. That is all. Thinking about all these just makes me angry... Please do not choose him as a private driving instructor...

Mr Pang, my teacher is very helpful at all times! He's very helpful. All the bad reviees are too biased. I passed in 8 tries! I think it's quite a feat since I'm partially autistic. Thanks Mr Pang!

I took driving lessons with him before and the impression he left on me was really bad. Well, basically, he was an instructor that couldn't tolerate mistakes and would yelled at the slightest thing without valid explanation. I would strongly not recommend anyone to be taught by him. It's a waste of money and time. You would not learn anything in the end

Impatient & Ineffective

He is very impatient and he will constantly yell at you. Frequent mood swings. He will be angry if you ask him questions, and he believes that he is always right. His emphasis is on your money, not on helping you. Please do not waste your money on this instructor. Pay abit more for school.

he's driving, not me

I learned from him 2 years ago. I found that his driving methods and parking techniques are very useful. He taught a lot safety on road. These are not like the previous reviews metioned. I am very grateful to him as I am 54 years old and passed my driving testing test on 2nd attempt

horrible, do not take lesson from him

Stubborn micro-manager who constantly tells you what to do even when you're driving fine. Cannot stand anyone disagreeing with his beliefs and if you are the type to raise queries for the sake of clarification, best not to take this guy.

The company he works for, Newman Driving Instructor sucks big time.The boss' wife who does the co ordinating of lessons and collection of fees, is especially unreasonable.Insructor made a mistake on the scheduled date but do not have the guts to own up n thus resulting me missing the lesson. No refunds, no replacement, no anything. Cannot bend the rules, that boss' wife said... no business for you then. Made us pay in advance on top of admin fees!
