This makes my blood boil.
Malaysian style corruption has seeped into the Singaporean system !!I used to laugh when my Malaysian dorm mates told me they had to pay RM1,000 to guarantee that they pass their driving tests in Lian3 bang1.
No need to even start the engine.
Just sit in the car, pay up and wait 10 minutes.
And hey presto, your driving license is ready for collection.
That’s Malaysia, I thought.
Will never happen in Singapore.
I can’t be more wrong …. read on.
My friend, let’s call him Hero, took 2 driving tests recently at a Singapore test centre.
Both times he failed.
Some may think Hero is a cock-up driver.
But Hero has at least 15 years of driving experience.
Excellent driver but got his license suspended a few years back for err…. hero driving.
See 3 to 4 images still ngeh ngeh lai.
Anyway, each time he drove up to the driving centre at the end of his test, he was asked to pay a bride to ensure he passed.
At the 1st test, the tester asked for $3,000.
At the 2nd, a different tester asked for $1,500.
On both occasions, Hero refused to pay.
Not that he can’t afford it….. it is against his principles.
His guess is that the 3rd tester will be asking him for $750….. see the pattern here?
For the drivers out there, you’d notice that there are a lot of cock-up drivers on the roads nowadays.
Also a lot of liu3 lian3 kia4 (young punks) buang-ing their cars and killing others in the process.
I wonder if these guys paid bribes to their testers.
If so, our system has allowed incompetent drivers on the roads to endanger us.
Worse still, palms were greased and pockets of those who are supposed to uphold the law were lined.
My friends, spread this word and stop the rot.
It stinks….. PUI!!
