You can check for the respective licenses required below:

First thing first, you need to have your driver’s license if you are intending to drive by bike, car or van!

If you hold a foreign license, you can only drive in Singapore for 12 months if you hold a valid class 2B, 3 or 3A license. After that time period has passed, you must obtain a valid Singapore driver's license. You can convert your foreign driver's license to a Singaporean license if you already have one. If you do not do so within one year, you will be required to take a driving test.
