Many Thanks.

Correct me if i'm wrong our license is already International when we drive in Commonwealth countries like Malaysia,UK,Australia etc?Cause sometimes i would drive my mum-in law car in Malaysia.Even got stop at road blocks before but so far its ok.
Its better to drive a small car with BIG brain rather than driving big car with NO brain at all!
If you don't like my attitude Dial 1800 Eat s--t

People from other countries are also amazed when Singaporeans are stupid enough to own cars at ridiculous prices tagged with something funny called COE. So no matter you are driving a tin can from whatever country, contis or supercars, you are already losing money from the moment you sign on the dot. My point is, respect other's choice, if you got nothing better to say, just shut up.

You can use your SG license to drive a MY plate car in Malaysia. That is allowed. Imagine if you're renting a car in Malaysia with your SG license say from Hertz, it's still MY plate right?

However, you are NOT ALLOWED to use your SG license to drive a MY plate car inside Singapore.

i think the rule is :
sg licence cannot drive MY plate car
my licence cannot drive sg plate car
due to insurance issue.
but it is ok for rented cars as the insurance is bought under u when u hire the car.
if it is allowed then why so many MY licence need to convert to sg licence before they are allowed to drive sg plate car in singapore?

MY license can drive in SG (any car plate, even SG plate) for the first year here by the way. SG license can't drive MY cars in SG is because they don't want people here to bypass buying SG cars.

If they're in dark blue uniform, they should be JPJ... the road transport department officers (like LTA here). TP is white, normal police is dark blue but different shade, and carries gun/cuffs. JPJ officers normally check on lorries, cars with illegal modifications including dark tint.

as long as your are SC or SPR, no way to drive MY registered car in SG though there's exception which is limited to number of entries and company letter to proof that you are working in MY on long term basis. Has nothing to do with International Driving Permit (not licence).

No. There's also no such thing as International Driving License. Only an International Driving Permit, but it is not a license - it's just an endorsement of your local license in many languages.

 

I have a valid driver's license in 3 countries, and still I cannot legally drive a foreign registered vehicle in Singapore.

If you really think like that, u were so lucky they never caught u. If not, u were get court. Because you SG driving license is not international license. Even you ask the SG TP, they also not recognize the SG license is international license
