ComfortDelGro Taxi has been conducting the TDVL Course since 2017 and our dedicated trainers are fully equipped with the knowledge to train applicants in what they need to know in order to become good at taxi-driving.

You should go for the TDVL test and upon passing it, take up the 12-day rental-free driving scheme with ComfortDelGro Taxi.
