Congratulation to My Dear Student Wang Fang for her 1st Attempt TP Pass. After I leave BBDC, she's my pioneer batch of private students who 1st leave me a testimonial on my blog. I'm proud to have a student like her. Thank you.
The following is her comments to me: I'm also the one passed the Class 3A in the first attempt(just passed yesterday). Except the merits about Mr. Kan appraised by others, I'd like to highlight 2 ponits which the very basic essentials:
1)Professional, unlike other part-time private instructors, Mr. Kan is a full-time instructor who can concentrate on his career with enthusiasm and patience.
2) Economical, compared with those (like my friends)take lessons at driving centre, they spent at least $2,000-$3,000 to get the licence. But I only spent about $1,600. Off course, it denpends how many lessons you taken. But the rate is definitely less than the Centre and you needn't face to different instructors with different teaching patterns that confuse you. So based on the two points, I strongly recommend you a good instructor - Mr. Kan

  1. Uncle Kan was my instructor at BBDC, he is a very experienced instructor he knows what the TP examiner look out for. Thus giving advice on ways to improve my driving techniques and avoid losing points in the test. Things that he commented on my driving has helped me improve greatly.

    Under his guidance I have passed my driving test on the first try. It's all thanks to his patience, comments and the things that he taught me. Uncle Kan gives clear instructions and advice on ways to improve driving. He is also a very jovial instructor, having a driving
    practice aren't that boring anymore. He might be strict at times on my driving techniques but that's what help me improve and not commit the
    same mistakes again.

    With his teaching experience in BBDC as well as those times that he started teaching driving way before he join BBDC you would definitely have a higher chance of passing your driving exam.

  2. I was Mr Kan's student at BBDC in 2009,and passed my TP test in class 3A at the very first attempt.I definately attribute my success to Mr
    Kan's very patient approach in teaching me.He was very understanding of the fact that I was extremely nervous and he was good at building
    up my confidence in handling the car even in heavy traffic conditions.He has the ability to handle students of any age because he has had so many years of experience in dealing with different types of people.Above all,it is his unfailing patience,kindness and consideration that make his teaching skills invaluable.I would unhesitatingly recommend that anyone wanting to acquire good driving skills should learn from Mr Kan.Thank you Mr Kan,and best wishes in your career.
    Your grateful student,
    Asha Thayer

  3. Mr Kan was my instructor at BBDC in 2009. It was all due to his experience and patient guidance that I was able to pass my driving test at the very first attempt.

    I truly agree with Wai Ting that Mr Kan knows what the TP examiner is looking out for, thus helping me to avoid penalty points in the test. Furthermore, from his experience, he is also aware of the many common mistakes that students will make, and made an effort to teach me how to avoid such mistakes.

    Mr Kan also took a very proactive approach in teaching. This is because when he saw mistakes that other learner drivers have made while driving along, he would point out to me not to make the same mistake.

    He is also very resourceful and taught me to deal with the many kinds of situation that I met while driving such as the different kinds of corrective actions for parking.

    I have really learnt and improved a lot from his constant useful comments, and of course, I have enjoyed the driving lessons with friendly Mr Kan=D Thus, I would like to recommend Mr Kan as a driving instructor to anyone who would like to take up driving in Class 3A.

    Last of all, thank you Mr Kan and all the best!=)

  4. Me too passed on my 1st attempt. Mr Kan is a very experienced and patient instructor and funny too which makes driving less boring. I actually forked out extra $5 to be under Mr Kan's guidance throughout my course at BBDC.

    Yes he was very strict with me that was because i made the same mistake over and over again. i learnt not to do it after that. it made me remember.

    I actually had a bad experience with a private instuctor prior to BBDC and wasted so much money but i know Mr Kan is unlike those inexperience and lousy private instructors out there who just want the money. Mr Kan has a sense of responsibility and the best part is he has been with BBDC so he knows what it takes to pass the test. My my husband even came personally to thank him after i passed despite his busy schedule.

    I would highly recommend Mr Kan to anyone who wants to learn or new to driving because he is that good!

  5. Mr Kan was my instructor when I started learning my 3A in BBDC in late Feb 09. "Lao Shi" (Teacher)is a very experienced instructor who make sure that I know everything a driver should know in great detail. He would point out the common mistakes made by students and would repeatedly remind me when I perform the same mistake. He mede sure that I practice my weaker points often. "Lao Shi" also make sure I know the importance of safety and being a responsible driver while on the road. Because of "Lao Shi" well taught lessons, I passed my driving in my 1st attempt in early June 09.

    Thank you very much, Lao Shi!

  6. I was Mr.Kan's student in 2009(sept). Passed my class 3A in the very first attempt. Mr.Kan is a very patient instructor. Whenever I couldn't do well in parking, he did not scold, instead he will always has the patience to correct my mistake whereby sometimes I will make the sae mistakes again and again. Mr.Kan has been teaching for so many years which make him an experience instructor. And also, when other learners made mistake while driving, he would point out so that I will not make the same mistake. I would recommend Mr.Kan if you are finding class3A instructor.

    ThankYou Mr.Kan. :)

  8. Mr Kan is very patient and professional as a private instructor. Unlike a previous instructor I had at YCK, who reads papers/talks on the phone/eats during my lessons, Mr Kan was fully alert while I drove, taking note of all my mistakes and giving valuable tips. His enthusiasm and easy demeanour just makes the driving experience so much more enjoyable. If you are cost-conscious/dread driving/have had bad experiences with driving instructors, I'd highly recommend Mr Kan for he is one of the rare few that truly wants the best for us.

    Thank you Uncle Jeffrey - I'm a first-timer and I passed!!

  9. Uncle Kan was being referred by my uncle. I had bad experience with my previous driving instructor but fred not uncle was very different. He is really patient and would never fail to give me important advices like what should I look on while driving on the road or in the circuit.

    Under his guidedance I passed my driving test on 9th April on the very first attempt with a dermit point of 8. Uncle will point out the important thing that I should take note which also helped me while I'm driving on the road now.

    Thank you Uncle~

  10. I PASSED! I PASSED! I PASSED!

    Ecstatic after passing my Class 3A driving licence yesterday (3 May 2010), I called my instructor and shared with him the good news ahead of my family.
    My instructor who has made this possible is “Lao Shi” Mr Jeffrey Kan!

    Lao Shi was recommended to me by another instructor and I am one of his ‘1st’ batch of students after he left BBDC for private instructing.
    Having failed in my first test attempt (read: demoralized and disheartened), I was explicit in laying my expectations to Lao Shi that – 1) I need a VERY patient instructor who does NOT raise his voice 2) I must have at least 2 circuit lessons at BBDC since I was denied circuit training before. Recalling our first conversation, Lao Shi must have felt “intimidated” by my assertiveness.

    I was very glad to know that Lao Shi was an ex instructor with BBDC, which meant he knew exactly what the TP examiners look out for during tests. Lao Shi is systematic, with appointment cards in place and even a plastic holder for my PDL! Lao Shi’s affable nature put me at ease during our lessons. Knowing it was my second attempt, Lao Shi took no chances and corrected all my initial “bad habits” and was strict in reinforcing the safety aspects. He was generous with tips on driving techniques, and would go around the key “stumbling” routes highlighting the common mistakes and how to avoid them during the test. His constant reminders helped improve my driving, which bit by bit stepped up my confidence level in handling diverse road conditions. I will remember Lao Shi’s teachings and apply them when on the road.

    To Lao Shi– Xie Xie Ni !!!!!! (*Thumbs Up* and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!)

  11. On the 21st April I passed my Class3(Auto) driving test on my FIRST attempt after about 20hrs of driving lessons with Mr Kan.

    Mr Kan is very patient, never gets angry and never gets tired of repeating the same thing over and over again.

    I was laden with bad habits from a few years of previous driving which made it more difficult for me to learn.

    The best thing about him as an instructor is that he is VERY aware and updated on what the testers are looking for and what mistakes I should avoid in order to pass.

    During my test, this proved invaluable as it seemed that some of my lessons were more difficult than the test.

    I also remembered his nagging and did my best to avoid my usual mistakes.

    The only regret I have is that I wish I had more practice in the actual test circuit for the added confidence.

    Overall, I definitely recommend him as a driving instructor and I also advise his students to bring a light cardigan with them because the aircon in the car is a bit strong at times :)

    Thank you very much Mr Kan for getting me through one of life's little hurdles! On my first lesson I told you that i only want to take the test once and I did it! I have also received my driver's licence photocard yesterday.

    Best wishes and success to you.

  12. I was with Mr Kan for 2 months plus to 3 months and i gt my lic. Thanks to him.. i pass on my 1st attempt. He was a patient instructor. He will point out my mistakes and guide me. He will also tell me what are the tester expectations. And he even provide a plastic holder to keep my PDL. From this point, u can tell he is a meticulous instructor. U won't be wrong if u pick him as ur instructor. (: & thanks Mr Kan.

  13. I was with Mr Kan for 3 months. Started on 18 Feb 2010 and ended on 18 May 2010. Thanks to his patient teaching. I passed my TP test (yesterday) at the very first attempt.

    Haha ...
    I remember, he always said I love to rush. Meaning didn't check blind spot and just move on. Opps ~ No law driver.

    He will point out the important point on the road as well as your mistake. Try to remember. Cos it definitely helps you !

    He even provide a plastic holder to keep your PDL.
    I bet, every of his students receive one as well. =)

    Overall, You won't be wrong to pick him as your instuctor.

    THANKS MR KAN

    All the best to his students too.
    REMEMBER ! SAFETY FIRST ! =)
    HAPPY DRIVING !!!

    All of that i need to thank Mr. Kan, my dearest Lao Shi. :) I followed him to learn driving from a very beginner, i havent know anything about car before. With his patient and professional teaching technique, and also followed his suggestion to take the test at SSDC(woodland) where is new and more easy to buy ticket to try the circuit here... finally i passed the test!!!

    Like all other people said above, he is a really nice person and professional instructor!!! He always teaches me to built correct driving habit and how to pass the test. It is a correct and best choice to learning driving from him!!

    Thank you again Mr. Kan!! :)

  15. I passed my driving test on a first attempt. Mr Kan is a very nice instructor who teaches with enthusiasm and pin-point every mistakes you made to help you on your driving. I was with another instructor for almost 3 months and have learnt nothing much until I change to learn with Mr Kan. In just 2 months plus with him, he made me realise and corrected all my mistakes which my previous instructor did not even point out to me. I'm very glad that I've choosen him.

    Thanks alot Mr Kan and all the best! =)

  16. Good Day ! I passed my TP test 1st attempt ! Well, I started learning since 31/01/10 with Mr Jeffrey Kan. Eversince, he taught me a lot, giving tips, nurtured my skills and best of all building confidence in me to pass the test. Non-stop encouragements, corrective measures were poured to me despite my slow gearing-up the correct, perfect way of driving. Great to have him as my Instructor but infact I would rather say as 'Shi Fu' because he is very very very patient. At the end of the day of 05/07/10 I meet the success ! And not to forget to Mr Tay for the last 2 lessons, you are cool man ! Lastly to all learners; strive hard, pray hard and good luck for the success.

  17. Mr Kan is a very patient instructor. He rarely scolds and guides accordingly when mistakes are made. The techniques he taught me are very efficient and will ensure you complete the required test (circuit) correctly. He also constantly reminds possible demerit points in the test during lessons, so that you'll remember and correct yourself, and be fully prepared to pass the test.

    I was a very bad student, lacking in technique and safety checks. I took more lessons than the average student, and Mr Kan never scolds or get impatient towards me. He was always patient and encouraged me despite my lack of confidence and sometimes defiant behavior.

    In the end, I passed the test on the first try, all thanks to Mr Kan's help. I am truly grateful to Mr Kan for this as I saved lots of money compared to other instructors or driving schools, and I can fnially drive on the road.

    Thank you Mr Kan!

    P.S. Mr Kan is also very humorous, his lessons are never boring! You'll not regret taking his lessons!

  18. Happy DaY yesterday!!! I passed my TP on the first attempt! I was introduced to Mr Kan for driving lesson in April early this year. Thanks to him I have got my license yesterday, in just 5 mths, with to cost of around $1.4k. This is so much cheaper as compared to school`s price. Thanks for his boundless patience, really. His constant reminders and prompting helps me to polish up my driving skills. At the end of the day, I passed my TP with just 2 mistakes with demerit points of 8. Once again, a big thanks to you, Mr.Kan for the coaching from 12/04/10 to 27/08/10. Very much appreciated! :D

  19. Finally passed my TP today and am absolutely over the moon! Thank you so much Mr Kan for all your patience and teaches! From the time I started learning, I have this bad habit of being so "kan cheong", rushing into things and getting into a panic after. Thanks for constantly reminding me to slow down, process my next course of action, which I remembered today and will alway do... I will definitely recommend Mr Kan to my friends or anyone wanting to learn how to drive. Big props to you Mr Kan!

  22. First of all, thank u very much Mr Kan. Without your patience and guidance, I wouldnt be able to pass my practical test on first attempt 2 days ago. I will strongly recommend Mr Kan to anyone who is considering to get 3A license via private route. He will not only teach you how to pass driving test but also give some practical and useful tips when u are on the road. Thank you once again!

  23. He's my instructor from Jan 2011 then I passed and got my license on March 2011!

    Thank you so much!

  24. Shoooo... Just pass TP. Thank you Mr Kan. I think only you can instruct me successfully to pass TP at first time. Honestly, I am a person reckless, rush and never rule follower without safety consence. It is miracle that I can pass TP at first time. I chose Mr Kan as my private driving instructor because my friend's strong recommend. She said he could keep talking about your error during driving class and give you useful correct tips. That is a truth. So I am prefer a 'noisy' instructor than a quiet one, even though you will feel a little bit of upset for re-occured error blamed by Kan. I like more driving in the circuit than on the road. I only deduct 4 point on vertical parking for the reason of failure to confirm safety. This is due to different standard between instructors. My test instructor think we need to keep eyes at back see throught from shoulder all the time when you reverse with the wheel in the middle. But I only turn my head one time. But on the road, I am too nervous to drive properly. I forgot to signal and fail to switch off signal. Mr Kan always scold me about this. But I repeat it during test. Luckily, my test instructor give me a PASSED. At last, thank you Mr Kan again, I would not pass the TP if without your instruction.

  25. Mr Kan is a patient and knowledgeable instructor. He gives direct pointers on driving tips as well as the requirements of the driving test, which helped me to discern and summarise clearly what I need to look out for and remember in order to pass the driving test. He will point out your mistakes and correct you, helping to identify your weaknesses and improve upon them. In every lesson, there was something new to gain, be it a new mistake or repeated one, and this not only helps to condition you for the test, but also your overall driving ability, to be a safer and more stable driver.

    Mr Kan is also an organized and committed instructor. He will ensure that you undergo sufficient lessons to prepare for the test, and will immediately plan the next lesson after your current one ends to ensure that a time slot is allocated to you within a suitable timeframe. I have been able to learn productively under Mr Kan’s tutelage, and I have no doubt that as long as you remember all that he has taught you and apply them correctly, you can be assured of passing the driving test.

    I started lessons with Mr Kan in early April 2011, and had only about a month before my test on 10 May 2011.

    I am glad to say that I’ve managed to pass it.

    I would like to thank Mr Kan for all that he has done for me. Indeed, I will miss those driving lessons with him. If anyone has need of a capable and responsible instructor, you need look no further :)

  26. Hi guys, guess what? I passed TP on first attempt! :D

    Thanks to Uncle Kan over here. You know guys, Uncle Kan is really patient.. Trust me, I made ALOT of mistakes but he's still very patient and point out my mistakes, remind me that I should really never repeat my mistakes.. Even little mistake, he will still correct you and especially for safety. So it's not only you learn how to drive to pass but you learn how to drive safely.

    One main good advantage to have him as your instructor is he constantly correcting your mistakes.

    AND when he corrects your mistakes, he will tell you how much points you might lost from your mistakes.. and that will scare you to not repeat your mistakes :P

    Again, thank you so much Uncle! :)) you motivate me and believe in me! see you around the neighbourhood, Uncle! :D

  27. Just passed my TP today!!!:D All thanks to Mr Kan, without his patience and guidance throughout the past few months, i don't think i'll be able to make it today. Mr Kan is without any doubt an awesome driving instructor! Throughout all the lessons that I have gone through with him, I always learn something new each lesson. Like during lessons, he will point out my mistake on the spot and tell me how many points I would have lost if i had repeated the same mistake during the test itself. He not only taught me techniques required to pass the test, but he also taught me how to be a safe and responsible driver throughout all the lessons. Whats more he's super patient and always encourages me to keep trying. So with all this, i'll definitely recommend Mr Kan to anyone who wants to take up driving!!! DOUBLE THUMBS UP:DDD AND THANK YOU MR KAN FOR ALL YOUR TIME AND EFFORT, REALLY APPRECIATE EVERYTHING!

  28. Dear Mr Kan,
    First and foremost a big THANK YOU to you. Since my first lesson on 13 May 2011 till my Practical Test on 10 Aug 2011, I have mastered 'the art of driving' and hence passing it with flying colours! My co-workers, colleagues and relatives could not believed that I passed my FTT as well as driving test in a period of less than 3 months!
    It was all your patience and guidance that allows me to deserve what I reap today.
    To fellow learners, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Kan for driving lessons. I am very sure to tell all of you that his passion in teaching is what we admire and gain from the most.
    Last but not least, Mr Kan, I wish you all the best in your health. You had really lived up to the chinese proverb of '名师出高徒’!

  29. Hi Mr Kan, Hannah here =) A HUGE THANK YOU for patiently teaching me for the past few months. I know I was not the brightest student in the world.. Keep making the same mistakes again and again and again.. But thanks to your contant encouragements (don't worry you will pass) and patience that I was able to pass my TP for the FIRST TIME today! *so happy*

    To future students, Mr Kan is a passionate, friendly and most importantly patient! Even though a little naggy *oops* but hey without that I think I won't be able to pass on my first attempt =). A funny and friendly dude! *thumbs up*

    Mr. Kan I wish you all the best and I'll definitely see you around..

    ps: If you pop by melb drop me a message =D I'll bring you around

  30. Just passed the test today! i must said thank you to Mr Kan here! without him, i would not pass the exam so easy.

    Mr Kan is a very patience and professional driving master! he understand and remember well all the driving skills that others do not have with his nearly 30 yrs of teaching experience. he will give you confidence, relex, extremely professional driving lessons and clear view of the whole testing process. he will explain to you a lot even when you meet a tiny issues. he is very professional and eager to teach you all the skills. he is even prolix sometimes, but that is all for you good sakes. he is the best master i have met!

    thank you and all the best to you!

  31. Many thanks to Uncle Kan, i have passed my TP at 1st attempt on 15 Sept 2011!!

    i got to know Mr Kan is thru my colleague Sam, Sam he has also passed his TP at 1st attempt last year Oct.

    My 1st lesson with Uncle Kan was on 17 April 2011. At 1st, I find he is a very strict Shi Fu (Teacher), and he has nagged alot... but i think the other way, he strict to me becos he want me to learn, he nag at me becos he want to me remember my mistake and never repeat it again. He did not give up on me, always teach in very patience and correct manner. Besides, he is very punctual and professional Shi Fu.

    Very appreciate his effort, i will remember his teaching.

    i am so lucky to have him be my Shi Fu!! Thank you very much!! From Lee Lai Fong Yuki

  32. If you're an extremely SLOW learner like me, then yes, congrats, you've found the right man!

    Mr Kan is very patient with his students, even if you make the same mistakes over and over again, he won't shout at you, he will just nag like a living sensor that keeps alarming upon every mistake you make, which is good if you're a careless driver like me, and even if you're the most forgetful person on earth, you will remember for sure!!!

    Mr Kan is also an organized and responsible instructor. He will ensure that you undergo sufficient lessons and circuits before you take the test. He also help to plan and arrange lessons for you after the current one ends. But his schedule is very tight (too popular), I'd encourage you to plan like 2 week ahead with him!

    Besides his amazing character, his driving tips and guidelines are really good! If you're the type that can't trust your guard feelings and have to go by "memorising", these would of great help! It's so accurate that you will never go wrong if you follow them carefully!

    PS: Dear Uncle, Thank you so much for your patience and support! Without you, I won't be able to pass on my first attempt! Wishing you prosperity and health!

    Got my lesson today with my first attempt.
    I am a super slow learner when it comes to hand, leg, motion coordination.
    I can only concentrate on one thing at a time. Mr kan has been very patience with me.... Reminding me of my mistakes and at same time making his lessons very enjoyable.

    I used to have another instructor who will raised his voice whenever I made a mistake and I was always very nervous going to his lesson, but I am always looking forward to Mr kan's lessons.

    His teaching techniques is superb too... I actually have ZERO points deducted in the circuit.... Superb right!

    Don't hesitate further, call Mr kan and good luck to you...

  34. Dearest Mr Kan,
    Thank you so much for your encouragement today. Without you I would not have passed my driving test today on my first attempt. I know I was very nervous and worried..only your words of encouragement allowed me to get through today. You were like a father teaching without getting tired even though I kept on doing the same mistakes again and again. You are such a dedicated person. It's really very difficult to find a person like you . 
    You have helped me to achieve my dream within a short period of time. I sincerely thank God for to have been trained by such an experienced, talented,dedicated, sincere person like you. 
    Such a memorable experience I had.  
    Once again thank you so much Mr Kan...

  35. I took the driving test three times with SSDC and failed all three times... So I switched to Mr Kan on my fourth try and I passed on my first private try! I was amazed, and I knew I could not have done it without Mr Kan's help. He helped me believe that I could drive, and despite my nervousness, I remembered all his advice during my test and finally passed. In the short time I learned driving with Mr Kan, I feel like I have learned so much more than I did the previous three tries with the school.
    Mr Kan is an excellent teacher, patient and encouraging. He knows all your weaknesses and will remind you constantly what you need to do to improve as a driver. He has never lost his temper at me despite how silly my mistakes are and instead would laugh about them with me (sometimes) and guide me to the proper way of handling a car. What is most important is that I have carried my lessons with him to the road - I still stick to all the safety rules he taught me and have become a confident yet cautious driver.

  36. I remember NOT going to my test all scared, nervous and shaking. 2 hours before I had my test, Mr Kan brought me around to circuit and road for the very last time. How he tried to instill confidence in me, how he nagged at me for the very last time and how he handshaked my hand, smiled and say "All the best!". I knew that might be the last time I see him.

    I was not nervous when I was sitting in the room, while waiting for the TP officer to call out my name. Because I knew that with enough practices, enough naggings, enough scoldings and enough compliments from Mr Kan, I can go through the test with ease.

    Mr Kan might be pointing out your mistakes again and again and it might demotivate you, but trust me, you will remember it forever. It will deter you from making the mistakes during your test.

    Mr Kan, I still remember how I cried while doing circuit and you comforted me by saying "Dont give up", while tapping my shoulder.

    Thank you Uncle, for putting in your best on every practical sessions that I had. I will never forget you.

    Take very good care of yourself and don't eat prawns, because your eye might be swollen due to allergy!!

  37. Thank you so much for Jeffrey! He is really a responsible instructor that not only explained every point in detail clearly, but also help to built up my confidence. I just passed my road test and can't help to wait to recommend him to all my friends who are looking for private instructor. And I should say private instructor is better than driving school in terms of flexibility n dedicate instructor.

    license at the very first attempt!
    He's one great instructor who is very patient with student like me! I often made careless mistakes and didnt have much confidence for my driving.

Thank you once again for your guidance and patience towards me! :))

  39. Mr. Kan is an excellent instructor with proper experience and skill. His instruction was very articulate and helpful for me to perform better for practical test. I began driving practice with Mr. Kan in Jan 2012 and today was my first practice test. His last minute pointers help me pass this test. Great instructor indeed! I receommend students to ask him questions that remain unanswered in textbooks. Thank for very much for your execellent training.

  41. Mr Kan was instrumental in aiding me to pass my TP at the 1st attempt! He is very experience, patient and strict, precisely the necessary ingredients of a good instructor.

    When Mr Kan says you are ready for the TP test even though you feel like you are never gonna make it, just trust him and you will be surprise how prepared you actually are.

    Thank you Mr Kan!

    He structures your lessons according to your pace - so just trust him. He will arrange everything at your convenience too.

    Thank you for being so awesome Mr Kan! I am really grateful for your guidance.

  44. Teacher Jeffrey definitely is your right choice if you are looking for a private tutor and want to pass your TP just ONE time! With his experiences in BBDC, he definitely could provide you the information of what a TP expect when you are having your TP test. Teacher Jeffrey guide me patiently with every small little detail that I made during my practical lesson. He even plan for your every steps so that you could get your car license without spending so much. He even came out to the effort of making his own unique card for us to know when is our next lesson and how much we had spent in it.

    Dear teacher Jeffrey,
    Thank for you all the guidance and support during my practical lesson and TP test. Frankly speaking, the day of my TP test I had no confidence at all. But all thanks to the 2 hour of practise and the support you gave. I passed my TP! That moment of happiness is very hard to describe. All I know was to be thankful and keep smiling! Haha. Thank you so much teacher Jeffrey!
    :)

  45. It has been over a month since i passed my TP test and I cannot thank you enough for helping me do that! And what was more surprising is that I did it on my first try (I expected a lot of attempts before I do pass)

    Mr Kan is a nice friendly uncle who is mindful of the learning course of his students. I was very busy with work and family (and NS!) till I have problems in making schedule for my lessons but Mr Kan was so accomodating and very easy to work with. He even reminded me of my test date after my return from reservist duty and gave me intensive training to pass on my first test when I think I couldnt. I think he has more motivation than I do lol!.

  46. A definite instructor to look for. With his utmost dedication, supervision and patient yet strict guidance, I have passed my Traffic Police test with ease. His advices were that came from the heart and I am grateful to have been his student. Mr Kan has been a good instructor and more so, a mentor. I used to be afraid of driving during peak periods and such but he taught me traits that were to my benefit.

    He is by all means a cheerful, happy-go-lucky person who takes much care in teaching his students. Grateful. I am really grateful.

    Thank you Mr Kan.

  47. If it hadn't been for Mr Kan's firm, yet measured approach to driving, I don't think I would ever have gotten my licence. For that I'll always be eternally grateful to him! I'm prone to panicking when facing unfamiliar situations on the road, but he always assured me and would continuously remind me to keep calm, proceed carefully and respond appropriately to the situation at hand.

    Mr Kan was always reassuring, exceedingly patient and ready to laugh at my mistakes with me, no matter how silly they were and how frequently I made them. The calm and confidence I feel whenever I'm driving now are all thanks to his continuously high standards, dedication and empowering approach to driving.

  48. Mr Kan has been a fatherly figure. Even though there were constant nagging every lesson,the comments are beneficial to my learning. I am glad that I was able to pass my TP on first attempt.

    At times I may feel like giving up after making several grave mistakes, however, he would always smile at me in the end.

    I will definitely recommend this instructor to my peers. Thank you Mr Kan for your guidance!

  49. Thank you Mr Kan for your constant nagging and scolding! If not for your guidance, i wouldn't have pass my driving test on the first attempt. I have to admit that i am a really slow learner but Mr Kan would always encourage me and nag at my mistakes even till the very last minute.

    I have a bad habit of repeating my mistakes and that often anger Mr Kan. Despite that, he would still willingly correct my mistakes (even though i know he's really unhappy). Unlike many other private instructors who will stop by the roadside to do their stuff or read newspapers during the lesson, Mr Kan is nowhere near them, he will make use of the full hour to teach you all the skills he knows.

    All in all, Mr Kan is definitely the instructor to choose if you want to pass your driving test on the first attempt. It was a long journey for me to travel to admiralty for my lessons but it was all worthwhile :)

    Thank you Mr Kan for your constant guidance and may all your students pass their driving test!

  50. Mr Kan, here's a long list of well-deserved thank you's:

    1)Thank you for always believing in me and having faith in me even when I never had that belief in myself.

    2)Thank you for your 24/7 encouragement and motivation. I was such a nervous wreck the first few lessons (and on the day of the TP test) and I kept telling you that I would need many attempts before I pass. Your response : Yor trademark smile and a calm "You can do it. I KNOW you can. " You have no idea how much those words meant to me. You were indeed right : I passed on my first attempt yesterday, after 5 months of training with you.

    3)Thank you for your patience. After a bad experience with a nasty driving instructor who used to scold and shout at my mistakes, making me even more nervous, I remember telling you on our first lesson that I needed an instructor who was kind and patient. You exceeded my expectations : - )
    Everytime I made a mistake, you would calmly tell me how many points I would get if it was the actual day of the test and would give me all the useful pointers to avoid that mistake again .

    4)Thank you for nagging at me all the time: those pointers and tips you gave proved so important and useful on the test day.

    5)Thank you for being so meticulous: right from providing the clear folder for the PDL to coordinating lessons to crafting the lessons based on my pace of learning and weaknesses.

    6)Thank you for knowing the inside outs of the trade. You were able to tell me everything the tester would be looking out for and how many points each mistake is. That cleared up all my doubts.

    7)Thank you for teaching me that safety comes first in driving: not just while learning driving but even after getting the license. I know that all those advice you gave will stick with me for a long time to come.

    8)Thank you for teaching me the true meaning of being a teacher. Being a teacher by profession myself, you taught my invaluable lessons on patience, unfailing encouragement, and helping students overcome their fears throuogh positive reinforcement.


    Thank you Mr Kan for helping me overcome one of my life's little hurdle. You know how scared I was in my first lesson and I have come a long way from there and I credit that all to you. I know that there is still a way for me to go in terms of having the courage to drive in real life without an instructor by my side, but whatever you taught me will always stay in my mind and i will definitely put it into practice.

    To all future students out there, I am confident to say that he is the best instructor out there. You will not regret embarking on this journey of learning driving with him.

    Wishing you all the success and happiness Mr Kan. See you on the road :-)

  51. Thank you Mr. Kan for your guidance on my driving over the past few months! I finally passed the practical test with your help!

    I was previously a Class 3 student at ssdc 2 to 3 years ago and failed twice. I dreaded driving lessons and didn't understand why I couldn't pass at that time. This time, I decided to engage a private instructor and called a few of the instructors with the highest pass rates. Mr. Kan sounded the most approachable and he was able to schedule me a lesson quickly.

    After a few lessons with Mr. Kan, I had a greater awareness of my job in ensuring the safety of everyone around and inside my vehicle while driving. This awareness made me want to be a responsible and good driver...and I started to realize what I was missing when I was learning driving in the school - a good and encouraging instructor who would explain why certain driving decisions/actions are dangerous, what to look out for, what my weaknesses and repeated mistakes are and why/how to correct them. Mr. Kan is such an instructor and I highly recommend him.

    Before my driving test, I knew that even if I didn't pass, I had learnt an invaluable lesson on how to go out of my way (by having the right attitude, being alert, making the right decisions and taking correct actions) to make sure that people around my vehicle can go home safe. Now even after I have passed, I want to continue to improve on my driving for this reason.

    Thank you Mr. Kan, and I wish you all the best (:

  52. Jeffrey, THANK YOU!

    I finally got my license :D
    Failed twice while taking as a student at ssdcl. This made me really demoralized and I put my driving on hold for about 3 years before taking it up again as a private student with Jeff in 2011.

    His patience is amazing! Being a very slow learner, he never lost his cool trying to teach me. His encouragement gave me the confidence to be a better driver. He is cheery and funny which brings more fun to driving.

    Definitely one of the BEST instructors out there!

  53. Mr.Khan,is one of the best instructor to look for. With his advices, supervision and patience yet strict guidance, I have passed my Traffic Police test at the first attempt.I am grateful to have been his student. Mr Kan has been a good instructor and more so, a mentor. I used to be afraid of parking but he taught me traits that were to my benefit. He is also a friendly and cheerful person who takes much care in teaching his students. I am really grateful.

  55. I just passed my driving at first attempt earlier this afternoon. You will be surprised how smooth the test can be because Mr Kan over prepares every student of his. His techniques are useful and easy to remember. A very dedicated instructor as well who knows exactly your strengths and weaknesses.

    Thank you Mr Kan for all your guidance!!

  56. Thanks to Mr.Jeffrey Kan. I passed my driving test this week in first attempt. I got the confidence in driving within first couple of classes. All the instructors are skilled drivers. But only few are very good teachers. Believe me, Mr.Jeffrey's teaching technique is unique. I know the difference as I had a short learning experienced with another instructor too. he will not only teach you the right techniques but also make you realize your own mistakes. his tips on last few class were very useful for the practical test. after all safe driving techniques are the lessons for life. who teaches you makes the difference. For any new learners my no.1 choice is Mr.Jeffrey.

  57. I just had my driving test yesterday, 26 June 2013. It was my very first attempt and I PASSED! I am really thankful to Mr Jeffrey Kan for all his patience and guidance and especially they time he spent on coaching me.

    He is so friendly and doesn't flare up easily even after rounds and rounds of practices but I still got it wrong. He just guide me step by step till I can get it right.

    I have heard of some other instructors taking the student's time to get a coffee or go for a smoke break and end up taking about 30mins off from the student's practice time, which the time can be used for more practices so I am glad that I have met Mr Kan who does not waste a little bit of time at all and made full use of the whole practice duration to let me practice more. He seldom even take a short toilet break.

    When he feels that you need more practice on certain things, he just make sure you practice till you get it right before proceeding to teach another new thing. I guess these all help me alot and enable many students under him to pass the driving test in the first attempt.

    Once again, THANK YOU MR KAN!

  58. I just took my test a few hours ago and I PASSED! I M SO THANKFUL TO MR KAN! i was under a different instructor for my previous attempts.

  60. My biggest pleasure to have been taught by Mr Kan. He works out miracle when it comes to teaching driving. I was previously a school student, then I switched to private after a number of failures. I almost decided quitting. Then I got to know about Mr Kan through my friend's recommendation. Only after 18 lessons of driving, I went for my 5th attempt of TP. I PASSED FINALLY! I must say 80% credits goes to Mr Kan, for being patient with me all the time, providing me with necessary knowledge and techniques I lacked the most. Thank you so so so much, passing driving test was like winning a lottery back then, but it HAPPENED! :) THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING MR KAN. Wish you all the best in the future. Stay in touch :)

  63. I passed my test few days ago on my first attempt. Though Jeffery was a little naggy at times but all he said was for our own good. I must thanks him for picking up my mistakes again and again in order for me to take note what a tester really wanna see and what should i take note of when I'm on the road when I'm driving alone. Thank you very much!

  64. I just passed my TP and I would like to express my heart felt gratefulness to Mr Kan and his patience with me. His teaching was really helpful and I really enjoyed each time we are on the road. I have to admit I am not a fast learner and tend to make a lot of careless mistakes, passing the TP is definitely one milestone in my life!

    Thanks so much and all the best to you Mr Kan!

  66. I was so glad that I'd passed my first attempt TP yesterday and I would like really to express my appreciation towards Mr Kan, who had been always so understanding with me throughout my driving lessons with him. Despite the many common mistakes which I always repeat, he would still guide me patiently, never once getting frustrated.
    Mr Kan, being a really observant mentor, does not fail to spot even those tiny flaws in my way of driving, both on main roads and in the circuit. He would remind me not to make those similar mistakes in the future, on top of pointing out to me certain roads where I have to be more cautious when driving.
    His valuable tips to me prior to the TP really did help a lot in being a safe driver and eventually allowed me to pass. All in all, Mr Kan is undoubtedly a very professional and affable driving instructor. Once again, thank you Mr Kan! Do wish you all the best in everything (:

  67. I passed my TP with 10 demerit points omg Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!! All thanks to mr kan☺️ 我学得很慢但是你好有耐心 :'D

    When I started off, I was the opposite of a good driver - I sped fast and had slow reflexes. Mr Kan would constantly nag at me, sometimes I would get frustrated at him because I thought what I did was correct, and he was just being unnecessarily careful. ("mirror blindspot never check, 4 points!" "ah ah ah see la too fast la") That was back then.

    Now looking back, I realized all the methods he taught me were super good techniques, his guide points were accurate and if I really follow it, I couldn't and wouldn't go wrong!!! And I also found his "nagging" extremely useful actually - they turned out to be every thing that the TP tester would penalize for. (Since I went to read the TP demerit mark scheme) what he said were words of caution and he was slowly drilling into my head. Eventually I became extremely careful and a competent and safe driver :)

    Thank you so much!!! I would definitely recommend you to my friends!

  68. Thank you Mr Kan. You were a very patient teacher and I have to agree with the comments below, what you taught is what the TP tester was looking out for too.
    I passed my TP yesterday. 16points tho. 10points gone due to scratching kerb at circuit when i wanted to move off directional change. There and then i can already hear Mr Kan's "ah see la see la... Rushing la.." Heheh.. You are the best Mr Kan. I am definitely recommending you to all my family amd friends!

  70. Im feeling on top of the world right now! After much searching and researching, I decided to take my driving lessons with Mr Kan. And, Im delighted with my choice.

    Started my lessons on the 29/12/13 and got my license today, 24/3/14! Mr Kan is an extremely meticulous and excellent instructor. He will always correct my mistakes and always give his undivided attention when I am driving. I will never forget all his valuable tips, as well as advices when driving in circuit, as well as on the road.

    Despite my lack in confidence, Mr Kan managed to help me overcome that by always accommodating to my requests for more practices. In addition to that, I will always remember him for telling me to always be confident.

    With that, Im delighted that my time and money were well spent by engaging Mr Kan as my PDI!

    Thank you Mr Kan, and all the best! :)

    cheers

  71. It's been a long journey but I finally made on the first attempt!!! Nothing can describe this feeling.

    Thank you so much Mr Kan for all your tips and encouragements. Before starting, I was so afraid instructors would be very mean and impatient according to all the rumors! But despite all my carelessness and "rushing", Mr Kan is tolerant and reminding! His driving lessons are quite easy going, he is approachable and nice to talk to! =)

    Thank you for assuring me to be confident before the test, I am so glad you were my instructor!
