Only 35 eHailing vehicles for inspection


KUALA LUMPUR: Only 35 of the 200,000-odd eHailing vehicles in the country have undergone Pus­pa­kom inspection as of April 10 this year.

In view of this, Puspakom Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Moham­med Shukor Ismail is urging eHailing drivers not to wait until the last minute before sending their vehicles for the inspection.

“This is to avoid any problems such as not getting approved within the stipulated time or congestion at the last minute,” he said here yesterday.

He added that for the convenience of the eHailing vehicle drivers, Puspakom had extended its operating hours to seven days a week at 19 selected branches.

Mohammed Shukor said these drivers also need not get their Public Service Vehicle licences first before sending their cars for the Puspakom inspection.

Beginning July, the government will enforce tighter rules for eHailing services in the country. — Bernama
