Vocational Licences


A Taxi Driver’s Vocational Licence (TDVL), Bus Driver’s Vocational Licence (BDVL) or Bus Attendant’s Vocational Licence is needed before you can drive a taxi or bus in Singapore, or work as a bus attendant on a School Bus.

Vocational licences granted by the LTA ensure that drivers and bus attendants of Public Service Vehicles are properly trained. They also bring an improved professional image to the different professions.

Applicants for a Vocational Licence must comply with LTA’s requirements before being issued with the licence. They must also continue to maintain acceptable records in order to renew their Vocational Licences.
