Written Reply by Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan to Parliamentary Question on Foreigner on Long Term Visit Pass Applying for Private Hire Car Vocational Licence

15 Jan 2019 In Parliament

Mr Murali Pillai asked the Minister for Transport under what circumstances will a foreigner on a long term visit pass with a Letter of Consent issued by the Ministry of Manpower that allows him to be employed as a driver in a private company be permitted to apply for a Private Hire Car Vocational Licence despite the fact that he will not be able to fulfill LTA's requirement that he must have a work pass issued by the Ministry of Manpower with his vocation stated as "chauffeur".

Reply by Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan:

1.     The Land Transport Authority (LTA) does not allow Letter of Consent (LOC) holders to obtain a Private Hire Car Driver’s Vocational Licence (PDVL).
