Don’t worry if you had recently lost your full-time job, as there is still something else you can consider, such as driving with ComfortDelGro. You will be surprised you could be earning as much as you did when you had a full-time job.

Perhaps you have recently become unemployed, and are feeling hopeless – mentally and financially – we’re here to tell you not to give up hope.

However, the question is this: Are you willing to work just hard as you have been if you were to consider driving full-time as a livelihood?

If you are, then it is not impossible to earn between S$6,650* and S$7,500* a month, plus benefits and incentives that you can enjoy. It is probably enough to raise a family with this amount you earn.

What’s more, you don’t need to have a degree to start a driving career. It all depends on how much you aim to earn daily, and how hard and smart you work to meet that target. In other words, you are your own boss and you only have you and your time to manage. So, self-discipline is a must in this industry.

To sum up, to have a really good income as a driver, you need to:

1. Start off by driving every day so that you learn when are the peak and non-peak periods.

2. Be mentally prepared to work 10 to 12 hours a day or more, and put in extra effort by driving the weekends if you have to.

3. Set a target and achieve it, and hit the targets that give you incentives.

4. Be disciplined. Drive, eat, rest, repeat. Do not hang out at coffeeshops and miss opportune time to drive.

5. Be aware of peak periods and major event when demand spikes.
