Only ATD-holders who sign-up for the scheme will be eligible

TDVL holders need not apply for the PDVL, so you can continue driving with Grab as long as your TDVL is valid.

Please send us a copy of your NRIC so that we can verify the status of your TDVL. You may send it in via WhatsApp 8783 8733 or upload your document here with subject “Proof to Drive”.

Yes, you can. Grab is happy to support all our driver partners, whether they are taxi or private hire car drivers. This is why we will also support partners interested in obtaining their TDVL. To do so, simply check the box for TDVL in the application form. Grab will cover all related fees, similar to the PDVL.

The TDVL allows you to drive both taxis and private hire cars. You are also allowed to take street hail jobs when driving a taxi. However, there are different eligibility criteria for TDVL and PDVL (see table below). To obtain your TDVL, you will also have to undergo a more rigorous training course that takes 25 hours.
Eligibility criteria for TDVL and PDVL:

Yes, you can certainly do so. Just head into LTA at 10 Sin Ming Drive to submit your application form. However, we recommend that you submit your application through us for a waiver of related fees and a more convenient application process.

If you have applied for your PDVL through LTA and have received your approval letter from LTA, please send us a copy and state your NRIC. You may send it in via Whatsapp 87838733 or email enquiries.sg@grabcar.com with subject “Proof to Drive”.

For Approval to Drive (ATD)-holders, you can currently continue driving with Grab. However, you must complete your medical check-up, training and test by 30 June 2018 to avoid being deactivated.

No, LTA only allows one application per driver. Multiple applications may result in delays in processing your PDVL. If you have applied for your PDVL through other channels and have received your approval letter from LTA, please send us a copy and state your NRIC number. You may send it in via Whatsapp 87838733 or email enquiries.sg@grabcar.com with subject “Proof to Drive”.

Medical

Besides being an LTA requirement, we want to ensure that all partners are healthy while on the road.

Yes, you may choose to head to your preferred licensed physician and send us a copy of your medical report by contacting enquiries.sg@grabcar.com with the subject “PDVL Medical” so that we can guide you through the next steps. However, why would you want to do so when you can head to Grab’s appointed healthcare providers to enjoy a hassle-free screening sponsored by Grab!

Grab has appointed SATA CommHealth to provide you with a medical examination, that will be sponsored by Grab.

Grab will notify you at each step of the process, and guide you through the follow-up actions.
