Join Us as a Driver

If you’re following our guide on how to apply for a Taxi Driver’s Vocational License (TDVL) in Singapore, you would have come across Step #6: to attend a TDVL course. But what is the TDVL course schedule like? And does STRIDES Premier offer TDVL course sponsorships for aspiring drivers to offset the TDVL course fees? Let’s dive into the details! 

What is the TDVL course? 

What is the TDVL Course?

The TDVL course is part of the procedure to being a taxi driver in Singapore. It is structured as a blend of self-study and classroom coaching, typically spanning up to 25 hours of comprehensive learning. 

What is covered in the TDVL course?

TDVL Course modules

The TDVL course in Singapore covers 5 core modules:

  • Apply On-the-Road Safety Practices
  • Apply Essential Engagement and Handling Techniques with Passengers
  • Comply with Rules and Regulations for Taxi and Private Hire Car (PHC) Drivers
  • Apply Techniques to Identify Key Routes
  • Apply Principles of Route Planning Using Printed Street Directory and Digital Navigational Tools

After the course, applicants will need to sit for a three-paper assessment where they will be tested on what they have learnt. This assessment is conducted at Republic Polytechnic.

What are the TDVL course fees?

TDVL Course fees

In Singapore, the TDVL course fees are as follows: 

  • Course Fee & Training Materials: $250/pax 
  • Test Fee: $25/pax

Do note that these costs do not include the 9% GST yet. While you can use your Skills Future Credit to pay for the course, you will still end up having to fork up quite a sum. Hence, we recommend registering for STRIDES Premier’s TDVL course sponsorship programme instead!  

What are the benefits of our TDVL course sponsorship?

With our TDVL course sponsorship, you will get:  

  • Free medical check-up and chest X-ray*
