KUALA LUMPUR: Ten driving academy and schools are suing the Federal Government, Road Transport department director-general and three others over the 1Malaysia Licence Aid (BL1M) programme.
Under the BL1M programme, those who are interested to get a motorcycle licence would only have to pay RM199 fee to My E.G Services Bhd.
Of the amount, the driving institutes that enrol candidates of more than 300 people will receive RM130 while those with fewer candidates will get RM150.
They are claiming that they have never given consent for their involvement in the programme and have expressed their objections to BL1M citing loss of income.
They are the members of the Persatuan Institut Memandu Malaysia (PIMA).
They have named former RTD director Datuk Seri Solah Mat Hassan, Umno Youth Urban Affairs Secretariat (SHEB) chairman Tengku Azman Tengku Zainol Abidin, concessionaire for the Malaysian E-Government MSC flagship application My E.G Services Bhd, RTD director-general and the Federal Government as defendants.
High Court judge Justice Yeoh Wee Siam has set Oct 23 for case management of the suit.
In the suit filed on Aug 15, they are seeking for a declaration that BL1M programmme, which they claimed was brainchild of SHEB, was unlawful.
They are applying for an injunction to stop Tengku Azman and My E.G Services from implementing the programme in any manner.
