KUALA TERENGGANU: Flood victims who lose or damage their car or motorcycle licences in floods can obtain new ones for free at Road Transport Department (JPJ) counters nationwide.

JPJ Director-General Datuk Seri Ismail Ahmad said the move was to ease the burden of those who had already suffered losses in the disaster.

"I urge them renew their missing licences for free at RTD offices. Normally, the fee is RM30 for a driving licence and RM20 for motorcycles.

"Although, the amount is small, it will surely ease their financial burden," he told reporters here Sunday.

Ismail also said traffic enforcement tasks next year would be assisted by the JPJ Young Squad 1 who would act as the eyes and ears of other enforcement agencies, namely JPJ, Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) and the police.

"To date, we have recruited 45,000 members for the squad nationwide.

Recruitment is still open to those aged 16 years and above who have car driving licences or motorcycle riding licences.

"The implementation will boost the awareness of road users to be more courteous when on the road," he said.

Terengganu currently has 1,300 squad members state-wide. - Bernama
