Uber and GrabCar drivers have to take and pass the Private Hire Driver’s Vocational Licence (PDVL) course – its a shorter, 10 hours course compared to the taxi driver is going through.
The course will cover topics such as road and passenger safety, and regulations for chauffeured services. There is no minimum age but applicants need to have held a Class 3/3A driving experience have to be more than two years.
Private-hire cars used for bookings under Uber and Grab will also have to be registered with the Land Transport Authority (LTA), and the vehicles must display a tamper-evident decal.Health screening and background check will be required to ensure that the commuters’ interests, particularly safety, are taken care of.
Both permanent residents and work permit holders can apply, provided that they are employees of a chauffeur company.
Singaporeans have the additional option of being a sole-proprietor of their own limousine firm to qualify.
