ALOR SETAR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak launched the 1Malaysia Licence Aid (BL1M) programme to make it easier for youths to obtain a motorcycle licence at RM199 instead of RM350 or more here Thursday.
"Many youngsters have motorcycles, bought for them by their parents, but they do not have a licence," he said at the launch during a gathering of Kedah youths at the Sultan Abdul Halim Stadium in Suka Menanti, here.
The BL1M programme comes under the purview of the Urban Affairs Secretariat (SHEB) of the Barisan Nasional Youth and targets to help 500,000 applicants from among youngsters to obtain the licence.
Besides the cheaper rate, the programme also offers several other benefits, such as free computerised test if the applicant fails and has to re-sit the test.
Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin had said that the BL1M was open to citizens between the ages of 17 and 40 and the fees charged coveres the application for the licence, photograph, practical training lessons and computerised theory and practical tests at the driving institute.
