In my recent post, i have shared what is Grab and how do both of these platform help to serve the public. In this post, i would like to share my thought about being a Grab driver. Below would be the list of requirement to be a Grab driver in Malaysia.

Requirement to be Grab Driver

  2. Age: 19-70
  3. Car 2009 below need to checking by office*
  4. Public Service Vehicle (PSV)
  5. Car 2012 onwards are eligible car for driving with Grab.

Free Signing up as a Grab Driver

If you meet the above requirement and interested be a GrabCar driver, you need to sign up with GrabCar and activating your account. In order to signup with GrabCar and join our big family member, kindly perform the following.

Upon activation, you are required to watch the training video which is specially made for new driver. This video will equip you with background of the app, how to use the app, what to do after receiving bookings and dealing with fare transactions. Kindly get familiar with the details of it through the video rules of conduct and other information on how to get started. The video can be viewed here.

Receiving Booking

When your driver app is online, which mean you are ready to deliver the transportation service to customer whom needed it. You are not recommended to ignore the job or cancel it because this activity will lead your acceptance rate drop which will result your incentive loss. However, there are certain cases where you really cannot accept the job due to certain reason, please call the subject customer and politely notify them your reason and request them to cancel the job. In this case, you will not be affected by the acceptance rate.

When the system routed the job to you, you are to response it by 15 seconds and failing to do so will result the app will log you out automatically. You are required to login again to get online and if this happened to frequent, your acceptance rate will drop and may result your incentive loss. Once you’ve accepted the job, kindly make a call to your customer to inform him/her that you are on the way and to get more information of his/her current pickup location.

Bad Passenger Behaviour

Being a GrabCar driver will face a lot of types of customers. Sometimes, it is quite common that the customer is not showing up, being late for more than 20 minutes, not paying after drop off, and much more, do not worry, you can always call  +603-7964 5000 or 1300 80 5858 and inform them your problem.

Safety & fraudulence

In order to determine the booking made is genuine or fraudulent, pull down the notification panel and check the last 3 or 4 digits of the booking ID which indicates the number the amount of bookings the passengers has made. If they are less than 10 transactions, call the passenger and speak to them in English to detect if the response is made in broken or foreign English accent. If you suspect the booking is a fraud, please call 1300 80 5858 to cancel the trip and report them.

Payout and Incentive

Payouts are made weekly into your bank account starting at 12am on Mondays and stops on Sundays at 11.59pm. If you have referrals that made 10 trips in the first month of joining GrabCar, RM100 will be banked directly into your account.

Penalty Guidelines

It is critical for driver to equipped with knowledge on the penalty guidelines which is stipulated. This guideline has four stages:

  • warning – dangerous or fast driving, driving without seatbelts, being late for 20 minutes without notifying passenger, being dirty, smelly, demanding passenger to sit in front, taking on another job with a passenger on board, taking longer routes and not using GPS and much more.
  • 3 days suspension – no show, overcharging passenger and much more.
  • 5 days suspension – JPJ blacklisted, police traffic blacklisted and much more.
  • banned – “Gaming” which means accepting bookings for rides that you did not accomplish and pressing ‘Pick up’ before passenger climbs in the car or stopping to drop passengers off far away from the destined spot. Gaming is also considered when passenger who uses a promo code miss showing up and driver presses and receives a free top up to his credit balance. There are certain driver whom are leveraging their own community to create a short trip among themselves at peak hour. This is because GrabCar will guarantee the driver of certain amount of fare depending on their “tier” accumulated. Driving with different car plate number is strictly prohibited.

    Does Grabcar chk summons during registration time or after that ?

    • Author
      admin 7 years ago

      It’s depend. If you are still able to renew your road tax, most likely you will be able to go through. But if you have been blacklisted by the police traffic, they will deactivate your account until you’ve settled it.

          It will take few hours normally. You may call back to grab customer service to verify if your account has been activated. Some, it may due to your email or Imei wrong and because of that you cannot online yet.

          • Loh 6 years ago

            I verify my documents on Friday (30/6/2017) afternoon and they told me to wait for activation but until now (Sunday 2/7/2017) still haven’t activate yet.

  6. Yong Joh Chen 6 years ago

    Hi Jc Chuah,

    May i know what is the manufactured year of the mentioned car? As of now, if your year of the mentioned car is below 6 years, there is no inspection needed. However if above 6 years and below 10 years, you need to go back to Grab office to perform car inspection. The inspection is merely on the tidiness of your car and all the safety functions are fully functional such as seat belt. etc. Hope this clarified.

      Hi Vishnnu,

      There are a lot of consideration for P license driver. If you are a rider, will you have confident on P driver since he merely have less than 2 years of driving experience? Moreover, Grab is trying to comply with PSV where PSV license holder must not be a P license holder. Hope this clarify.

    hi. I just read a news regarding the SPAD had arrest few grab car driver in sunway area recently. the reason is that they don’t have a licence to provide public transportation service. so where do I actually get this licence and how?

    • Iris Ye Wan Hua 6 years ago

      Dear Sean,

      Recently i don’t hear any news saying that there is Grab Driver being arrested by SPAD for eHailing services. Besides that, Parliament has table down to legalise this services by March 2017 but seem to be delayed again. I have a friend working in Grab and he mentioned that there are about 40k drivers registered for Grab.

      You do not need license to operate Grab. What you need is a phone and your personal information to register for Grab. You may send an email to if you are interested in join Grab and service the community.

      Btw, I join Grab as well but i just drive sometimes when I have nothing to do. 🙂 I have joined this community and my leader of this community really guided me a lot.

    Hi and good afternoon.
    I actually have been driving for 20 years. But a few years ago when i tried to renew my road tax I had some fines which i did not have the money to pay. This dragged on for more than 3 years and subsequently was forced to redo my license again. So now my license is P again. Can I drive for Grab ?

    • Author

      Short answer Adrian, no. This is because Grab is doing the approval base on procedure regardless of what excuse.

    • Yong Joh Chen 6 years ago

      Hi Syin,

      It is depend on how did you register. The whole process will take around 24 hours for alpha registration, which we have and you need not need to go back to Grab HQ office. However, if you register yourself, you need to go back to office for document verification. Some need to perform car inspection if your car is older than 2011. So the activation vary.

    • Author

      Hi Tim,

      As i’ve mentioned with you on my email and whatapps, project gold is meant for existing driver and not the new driver. Grab need your to rent the car outside for about 3 months before you are eligible to join their program. Please bear in mind that their minimum contract joining their programme would be 6 months and if you are banned for certain reasons, you will not be able to use the car joining their competitor as driver.
