Do you want to work till 75 years old?

Postby php » Fri Apr 13, 2012 10:09 am

SINGAPORE: Taxi drivers will be able to drive their taxis till they are 75 years old when the revised age limit takes effect from June 1, 2012.

This was announced by the Land Transport Authority on Friday after a review of the current age limit, following feedback from the National Taxi Association and taxi drivers.

With the raised age limit, taxi drivers who intend to extend their vocational licenses after the age of 73 will be required to pass a detailed assessment annually or at a shorter interval as deemed necessary by the doctor or occupational therapist.

Taxi drivers who pass will have their vocational licence renewed yearly until they are 75.

Currently, all taxi drivers who intend to extend their vocational licences after the age of 70 are required to pass a detailed assessment.

The assessment comprises a medical examination, an occupational-therapist evaluation and an on-road driving test with an occupational therapist and a qualified driving instructor present.

Yes, but with more flexi-hours or less hours. So the taxi company should rethink their rental package rate, giving those who just want to drive for 4 hours a day a choice to do so without having to be bogged down with rent.

If I don't have anything more meaningful to occupy my one, why not? If I stay at home all day with nothing to do, I would surely lose my mind ...

I don't see why not. So long as I am still able to, I will continue working.

Working to 75 is OK as long as there are enough employers who are willing to take us in.

But anything past 65....they should not be allow to operated heavy machinery....and car/taxi is one such!!! And esp so for taxi coz it's in the public and affects the others too.

I don't mind some light work with flexi time just to keep my mind occupied, and ensure I have a "social" aspect of my life.
