Yah. But my case may not be your case.

So please assess yourself.

For me i still think if u need a car to go work. Either u take couscous suggestion to take grab subscription or u buy your own car (if can afford).

Renting car is no no... afterall u work ft after work already shag still want to think how to recover rental cost meh? U not doing fulltime leh. Why put this into your daily worry list.

My driving hours is as below:

Mon-Tue : 6pm - 8pm (then go fetch wife)
Wed-Thu : 6pm - 7pm (then go fetch wife)
Fri : 6pm straight MD back home eat dinner with wife then go out 9pm - 1am
Weekends - rest and use car for non phv driving.

Target to drive less then 10 hrs per week to cover just car installment cost.

Previously aim to cover insurance, road tax, season parking, petrol and servicing but it will means more time needed on the road so these cost i will use salary to pay for. Afterall even if i dun have car i also need to pay to use public transport, although cheaper this way then owning car but u lose the convenience loh and have to go out very early since i stay jw and work in tai seng area.




Good info!. Thanks a lot bro . I also just want to cover back the monthly installment. The rest use a bit of salary to exchange for .

Base on that schedule of yours, can it cover $1000 of installment?

I can cover my monthly installment of $1152. So $1000 no issue but drive smart hor...

When its time to aasng (auto accept step n go) and manual u need to switch back n forth. Dun blind take every trip... those $6789 trip leave it to the full timers. Do only high fare trips and use the free 6 cancellation per week wisely to earn $24x4 per month without breaking a sweat.

Good to hear ! Thanks for the tips on the strategy with the cancellation and fares. Is that for grab or gojek or same ?

Yes agree. So long when have full-time job, driving phv will become secondary priority le, cannot afford to let it affect full-time job. If single not married still ok, chiong to max out everyday earn every dollar. But if married le, have to cater to family too.

That's why currently for me my plan is once I get the pdvl license, will try to rent the cheapest wheels (Mazda 3?) by the week, while I continue to job-hunt. I mostly likely won't rent by the months, that's also to fingers crossed I can find a job soon. Also, my home isn't far from MRT station, so no plans to permanently own a personal car.

Something crossed my mind. During my lesson, the trainer 101 times keep reminding us never don't remove or block the phv blue tag. Just curious. Have people really so keen to remove it de meh?
