Uber, Grab drivers will be screened

PRIVATE chauffeur drivers operating under apps such as Uber and Grab will be regulated in Singapore to safeguard commuters’ interest.

Like taxi drivers, they will be subject to medical tests and background screenings, have to attend a vocational licence course, and be put under a demerit point system.

Private-hire cars used for bookings under Uber and Grab will also have to be registered with the Land Transport Authority (LTA), and the vehicles must display a tamper-evident decal, so commuters and the authorities can easily identify them.
