Question

To ask the Minister for Education whether the Ministry will consider incorporating the Class 4 licence driving courses under the SkillsFuture framework which will facilitate mid-career Singaporeans to transit into transportation drivers amidst the current labour shortage due to border restrictions.

Response

We recognise that Class 4 driving licences are a regulatory requirement before individuals can take on jobs that involve the driving of certain heavy motor vehicles. Given this clear employment-related outcome, SkillsFuture Singapore would be prepared to support courses related to attaining Class 4 driving licences.
