The LTA has just made an announcement that ALL PHV drivers must be Singapore Citizens and must be at least 30 years old!
This is with immediate effect!
According to LTA, the changes which will take place with immediate effect, is to align the criteria for Private Hire Car Driver's Vocational Licence (PDVL) with requirements for a Taxi Driver's Vocational Licence.
With immediate effect, all new PDVL applicants must be Singapore citizens who are at least 30 years old.
It is unknown as of now how this new rule will affect current registered PHV drivers.
We believe this change will impact current drivers too.
