Did you know that it is mandatory for cabbies to renew their Taxi Driver’s Vocational Licence (TDVL) every three years, and attend a Taxi Refresher Course once every six years?
When your TDVL is due to be renewed, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will send you a renewal notice. If you did not receive it, log in to the GoBusiness Licensing portal to check your renewal status. Otherwise, you may also check your TDVL status under One Monitoring.
I received a renewal notice, what should I do?
Whether you are aspiring to be a cabby or are an existing cabby with us, read our easy guide below on how you can get your TDVL renewed. But first, you must ensure that you have met regulatory requirements stated in the renewal notice.

Cabbies aged 50 and above are required to go for a medical check-up (without x-ray) before the renewal of your TVDL.
