    From there, you can begin your application by filling out the form on PowerDrive website.

    Applying online to drive for PowerDrive is easy when you follow these simple steps:

    • Head to (driver’s application form url) and fill in the form at the top of the page with your first name, last name, email address, and phone number. Then, tap “Next.”

    • Enter your barangay, city, and vehicle type. Agree to receive texts and emails from PowerBox, and confirm that you’ve read the PowerBox privacy policy. Then, tap “Next.”

    • Tap “Let’s begin” to start a short questionnaire that determines your eligibility. When you submit, you’ll either move forward or be informed of why you can’t move forward (usually due to eligibility issues or lack of demand in your area).

    • If you’re able to move forward, follow the prompts to set up your driver profile. You’ll need to provide required documents such as your driver’s license, vehicle permit, and bank account or e-wallet information. Then, you’ll need to authorize a background check.
