    • To me Refresher Course is a bloody waste of our time .

      My own opinion , key reason is not about smlj refreshing us for smlj quality service .

      It's the $50 they want from drivers .

       

    • But lan lan siow siow "Compulsory" to pay ...... if can pay and no need attend smlj course , i will pay and sleep at home .

      agree. $50 per TD is what they want.

      If there are 30,000 TDs, they will need to go for the course.

      that will be $1.5 mil income for them every 6yrs.

      That's $250,000 every yr! steady income for these training centres...

      updated info? cannot self read meh?

      the trainers are current TDs meh? if not, they teach what?

    • Refresher Course is a must to attend for any TDVL holders.........

      Aiya, where got free course in this world 1........

      Than the cb course is always full 1 hor.........

      Than without attending this course, cannot extend your TDVL.........

      So lan lan must go back CDG to get them to book course for us, because once you pay the $50, is as good as already attending, LTA will allow renewal of your TDVL(most time, the next available course will be 2-3 months later which will overshot your expire date for your TDVL).........rather than doing it personally, CDG can settle for you everything swee swee........

      But ultimately, you still have to attend the course physically hor, attendance is recorded, certificate will be given out(knn, don't know throw that certificate to where liaoteeth.png)........

      Ok la, the last round I took the course at night in Sin Ming CityCab building, 3 hour spread into 4 nights.........

      Knn, a lot of cock to talk, a lot of update to gong, terrorist la, India taxi bombing la.........

      My class consist of few non TD also, this is the power of LTA, lan lan you have to attend..........

      Than for TD, no down time lor...........

      But instructor very good la, 3 hour class can cut short to 1-1/2 hour, so basically no pain la.........

      At the end of the course, got a test lor, must pass hor.........teeth.png

    • Yeah it is indeed a waste of time...But, the authorities must show to the PUBLIC that they are doing their job so that any complains, the authorties won't need to take the blame, they can always reply "But the Cabbies have up to date knowledge as it is compulsary for them to attend TD Refresher Course" ..I used to be TDVL instructor so I know the trick of the trainers...the Scope of Lessons and what is required to present during the lesson don't tally...hohoho..Perhaps next time when you are in class attending the Refresher Course, just asked the Instructor if they have ever driven a taxi for 3 days.

    • Simply to put it, if we do not attend, many instructors, admin staffs and those jia liao bee officers may lose their jobs. Take it as we sponsor them in way of job creation, bo bian.
