Drive with Grab using your own car in 5 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 / PR

Minimum 2 years driving experience

Own a 4-door car


Step 1: Register a business

Your journey as a GrabCar driver starts with a business profile.

To make things easier, please refer to the following step-by-step instructions:

  • Visit www.bizfile.gov.sg
  • Login using your SingPass ID and Password
  • Create a sole proprietorship with the business activity code 49219 (Code for Private Car For Hire with Operator)
  • Download the business profile ($115)

Grab will reimburse you with up to $100 in credits. This process should take you less than 30 minutes and you can then use these credits to accept jobs on the Grab app.


Step 2: Purchase commercial insurance

It’s SAFE to drive with Grab using your own car! 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.

At Grab, we have partnered with AXA to get you the most competitive rates. Currently, there are two types of policies that you can explore with AXA:

a) An annual plan – Rates start as low as $707*

b) AXA Pay-As-You-Grab (“AXA PAYG”) – Click here to find out more

Note: You may use any insurance provider as long as their coverage provides commercial insurance for your vehicle.
