Drive with Grab using your own car in 4 steps

When you drive for Grab, your car moves from being a depreciating asset to a smart choice. Because let’s face it, it is expensive to own a car in Singapore. And every minute it sits in your parking lot, is money lost.

What are the minimum requirements to drive with Grab?

At least 21 years of age

Singaporean with valid PDVL / TDVL

Singapore PR employed under a limousine company

Minimum 2 years driving experience

Own a 4-door car (1.5l and above)

Step 1: Conversion of vehicle

All cars that are intended to be used for private-hire purposes must be converted to Z10/Z11 classification. Z10 is for normal sedans while Z11 is for vehicles like SUVs and MPVs. The process is simple and can be done online at ONE.MOTORING, please follow the below step-by-step instructions:

  • Login using your SingPass ID and Password
  • Select: Ownership > Vehicle Scheme / Specifications > Convert My Vehicle Scheme > Conversion type: Passenger to Private Hire (Chauffeur)
  • Finally, make a payment of $100

Step 2: Purchase commercial insurance

It’s SAFE to drive using your own car when you’re Grabbing! When your car is commercially insured, you have peace of mind that both you and your passengers are protected in the event of an accident when you’re on a Grab trip.

At Grab, we have partnered with Income to get you the most competitive rates.
