What are the requirements to be a Grab Driver?
Basically if you want to drive in Malaysia, you must be a Malaysian citizen.
A Malaysia citizen must have Malaysia identity card (I/C or MyKad) to proof your nationality.
Vehicle: Have a suitable car, sedan, SUV or MPV
Since you will be getting passengers in your car, you must have suitable transportation.
You must own a sedan with 4 doors. The manufactured date must not be more than 10 years old from now.
You can also drive an SUV or MPV. These provide extra comfort to your passenger. Please refer to the updated list from Grab website.
If you don’t own any car, fret not. As long as your name is included in the ConNote of the car insurance. That will do.
You must be between 19 to 69 years old. Even if you get your driving license at 17 years old, you still have to wait the probation period ‘P’ license to be completed.
But if you are too old, more than 70 years old, there might be an issue with your own health and safety of passengers.
License type: Complete/Full D license
You need a completed D or full driving license. Not your P or probation driving license. You must show your skill and attitude on the road. This is also to show that you are experienced and competent driver.
This is Malaysian government latest requirement effective October 2019. On top of the complete D license, you are required to sit for another test to get PSV. PSV stands for public service vehicle.
Past records is not allowed
