PETALING JAYA: From March 15, the disabled only need to pay RM2 to renew their driving licences.

This includes learners and probationary driving licences as well as Competent Driving Licence (CDL) for both motorcycles and cars.

Currently, the disabled are charged RM30 to renew their car driving licences and RM20 for motorcycle.

Additionally, the RM10 driving test fees for the disabled had been waived.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the reduction was aimed at reducing the daily cost of living for the disabled.

“It is also in line with the government’s policy to improve on its delivery system in providing better service to the disabled,” he said in a statement.

He said records provided by the Road Transport Department (JPJ) showed that there were 229,798 holders of CDL motorcycle licence since Nov 30 last year while 677 were probationary licence holders.

Currently, the disabled only pay a nominal fee of RM1 to renew their car road tax.
