Welcome to the first Ola Headlines newsletter, full of updates for our drivers.
As summer season starts and society begins to reopen, safer driving and higher hygiene standards have been asked of us all. We want to thank you for working with Ola to offer this in every journey.
Thank you for reconnecting riders
Confidence in the ride-hailing industry has never been more critical for riders, and with your service we’re helping remove public concern.
Our new Driving 101 Blog outlines the government COVID-19 updates for protection while working as a driver. Also see our top three reasons on how we predict Ola drivers will reconnect the nation.
On the new Driving 101 Blog, you’ll find all the relevant highlights from First Minister Mark Drakeford’s Friday speech about easing the lockdown.
An update on license renewals
The effect of COVID-19 means many Government departments are working with reduced staffing levels. As a result, processing times for license renewals are likely to be longer than expected.
Please plan ahead for this. If you apply for your documents in a timely manner, your driver status on the Ola Platform should not be affected by these delays. You can check timescales with your local issuing departments to avoid driver status interruption.
