Loke: E-hailing drivers don't have to change status of vehicles to e-hailing private vehicles


PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): E-hailing drivers have been given the flexibility of not changing their vehicle category from individual private vehicle to e-hailing private vehicle (AH), says Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook.

He said the move was decided following discussions between the Transport Ministry and the Road Transport Department (JPJ) today after receiving complaints from e-hailing drivers, especially those from Grab.

Previously, e-hailing drivers had to change the usage code of their vehicles from the individual private vehicle code to the AH code at JPJ as one of the requirements to be an e-hailing driver.

“I have talked to the JPJ, and we have agreed to do away with this requirement.

“This means e-hailing drivers can still keep their vehicles as individual private cars,” he told reporters after a meeting with JPJ here Tuesday (May 7).

However, Loke said vehicles used for e-hailing services should have a public service vehicle (PSV) licence, passenger insurance, e-hailing sticker and e-hailing vehicle permit (EVP) from the Land Public Transport Agency (APAD). - Bernama
