Highway Code to be available as e-book from March 2018

PUTRAJAYA: The Highway Code book will be available as an e-book starting March next year, says the Road Transport Department (JPJ).

Its director-general Datuk Shaharuddin Khalid said that this was to ensure that the supply of books is enough for everyone wanting to sit for their learner driver’s test.

“We have planned for the book to be made available as an e-book (as well) and this will be done by March next year.

“So after this I hope that there will be no issue (of the lack of books),” said Shaharuddin during a press conference to mark his 100 days as JPJ director-general.

He said that the issue of a shortage of books for students at several driving schools in Selangor, highlighted in The Star recently, was due to the school holiday period when there was a huge increase in students wanting to sit for their learner driver's test.

"Our supply is enough, it's just that (some) driving institutes are doing a promotion so more students want to take their licences (there)," he said, adding that JPJ has supplied an extra 50,000 books to the affected driving schools.

He said that with the e-book, such issues could be avoided in the future.
