Thank Your Lucky Stars ⭐

Here’s how Driver Rating (DR) works!

Tekan di sini untuk terjemahan Bahasa Melayu

Every Grab partner has Driver Rating (DR) which consists of stars. But how does it actually work and what does it mean?

At the end of every trip, a Grab partner is given a rating between 1 to 5 stars. The DR helps Grab keep track of consumer satisfaction while maintaining high partner quality.

💡 Tip: The rating system is also a key consideration for Grab to identify and reward top performing partners!

After a trip is completed, consumers will have 72 hours to rate their experience on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. The system will then calculate your DR based on the average of your last 100 ratings. 

So, even if a previous consumer gave you a poor rating, it may not affect your overall DR significantly IF you’ve had good ratings throughout your other rides/deliveries. To check your rating, go to the profile page on your driver app.

Note: Your current rating is updated every 12 hours (twice daily) at fixed intervals. That is why changes in your rating value may not reflect the latest rating from a consumer. See ‘How is DR calculated? at the bottom of this page for the detailed calculations.

The average DR across all our Grab partners currently stands at 4.98. Use that as your goal and work towards it!

You may zoom into the areas of improvement that consumers have suggested for you by referring to the tips listed below. Do this, and you will be pulling your driver rating up in no time at all, especially when over 90% of rated rides are 5-star ratings!

Note: Grab monitors DR and will keep a lookout on Grab partners who are consistently rated poorly.
