VOCATIONAL LICENCE DEMERIT POINTS SYSTEM

VOCATIONAL LICENCE DEMERIT POINTS SYSTEM FOR TAXI DRIVERS AND CHAUFFEURED PRIVATE HIRE CAR DRIVERS

Taxi drivers and chauffeured private hire car drivers share a common Vocational Licence Demerit Points System (VLPS) which requires them to abide by a framework of rules and regulations.

The VLPS makes the process of investigation and imposition of penalties more transparent to both commuters and drivers. Under the VLPS, the penalties will consist of a composition sum or Court action and accompanied by demerit points.

For details of the offences and penalties applicable to taxi and chauffeured private hire car drivers under the VLPS, please refer to Singapore Statutes Online at https://sso.agc.gov.sg under “Road Traffic (Chauffeured Private Hire Car and Taxi Vocational Licence Demerit Points System) Rules 2017”.
