LTA has apparently gotten around 39,000 applications for the Private Hire Car Driver’s Vocational License (PDVL), of which around 33,000 have been given the endorsement to go for the PDVL course. 500 of the affirmed candidates have since gone to and passed the course.
LTA has likewise affirmed that so far, 27,000 private-enlist autos have been appended with alter clear decals, which must be shown on all private-contract autos giving chauffeured services from July 1. Along these lines, whenever you take a private contract auto, ensure that the decals can be seen, as required by Law. Private contract drivers must present their applications for the PDVL course before the current month’s over (June 30) to be permitted to keep driving. They will then have a year to go to and pass the course.
The alter free decal is a decent activity by the LTA, as it enables travelers to effortlessly recognize which autos are really for private contract, and useful for the drivers as well, as they would now be able to effectively claim to be private contract drivers when entering condos, or some other holding up ranges, particularly at the shopping centers. Also, the way that the private contract drivers are made to go for the PDVL course as a mandatory necessity will just enhance the administration quality and benchmarks for private contract showcase and guarantee the drivers realize what should and can’t be possible.
