PUTRAJAYA: Driving institutes will be allowed to start operations beginning Friday (Feb 12), says Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said this was agreed upon after listening to a presentation by the Transport Ministry on the matter.

“Driving institutes will be allowed to operate and will be required to ensure standard operating procedures (SOP) are followed strictly by personnel as well as student drivers, ” he said on Thursday (Feb 11).

The permission to operate covers driving curriculum classes, the pre-driving test as well as practical sessions.

Operating hours will be from 7.30am to 8pm and the use of face masks by the driving instructor as well as the learner driver is compulsory.

Institutes are also required to ensure that their students are only present for their respective sessions and must not be allowed to wait around.

Sanitisation is also a must each time a car is used for a lesson or test.

Ismail Sabri said flight academies are also allowed to resume operations from Friday with SOP in place.
