When should I attend PDVL refresher course?

01 Jul 2018

Holders of the valid Private Hire Car Driver's Vocational Licence (PDVL) are required to renew their Vocational Licence once every 3 years so as to revalidate their credentials as Vocational Licence holders. 

They also need to attend a mandatory 3-hours refresher course once every 6 years so as to revalidate and update the mandatory vocational skills they are licensed to perform according to the current PDVL course. Singapore Taxi Academy (STA) offers the refresher course and it costs S$42.80* per trainee. The refresher course schedule of STA can be found at https://www.taxi.org.sg/schedule.html.


What is the validity of a PDVL, and will PDVL holders be required to go for refresher courses?

The PDVL is valid for three years from the date of issuance and PDVL holders will be required to go for refresher courses once every six years.
