....back to the classroom.......

Every taxi driver need to attend a refresher course once every six years and mine, for the second time is due  again. This exercise is called the Taxi Driver's Vocational Licence (TDVL) Refresher Course and I am given five centres to enrol for the course. I have enrolled at the Bukit Batok Driving Centre Ltd located at Ave 5. The training fee amounts to $53.50 for a total of (11) hours duration to be completed in 2 days, this is compulsory. Furthermore, my TDVL expires on 30/9/2011, renewal fee is $40.00 and not only that, I need also to pass a Medical Examination which will cost me another $25.00. Letting you in on this bit of boring information means also a nett loss of income for me. This is inevitable, but what to do, looks like additional working hours coming my way. Aiyoh ! I nearly forgot, "What about my Sleep", I work at night and sleep in the day, so, with day one training starting on 2/9 from 10.30am to 3.00pm and day two on 3/9 from 8.00am to 3.00pm, my greatest Loss would be  "SLEEP"!!.....

  1. Agreed life as a taxi driver is hard. Really hard. And the traffic on the roads now a days makes it even more challenging.
