PETALING JAYA: Due to the ongoing movement control order to curb Covid-19, the Road Transport Department (JPJ) has granted a nine-month extension to learner’s driving licence (LDL) beginning Feb 11 until Nov 11, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
The Transport Minister said the extension would apply for drivers whose LDL had expired or would be expiring between Jan 13 and Nov 11 this year.
“If the expiry date of the LDL is more than two years before or after the MCO (before Jan 13 or after Nov 11), they will not qualify for the extension.
“These drivers need to make a new LDL application.
“They must repeat all the KPP 01, KPP 02 and KPP 03 training, as well as all examinations in Part I, II, and III, ” he said in a statement.
Dr Wee said LDL holders who were eligible for the extension until Nov 11 only had to make a copy of their licence with a RM10 fee.“The date printed on the LDL is the date of the transaction that commences and ends on Nov 11 (more than a period of three or six months), ” he said.
For LDL B2 holders, they are allowed to renew their licence with a payment of RM2 for three months if the LDL still has a validity of two years.
The new ruling came following the MCO which started on Jan 13 this year that did not allow the operation of driving schools, e-hailing operators and computer examination centres.
On Feb 11, the government through the National Security Council issued an order to allow e-hailing operators and driving schools to resume operations based on the standard operating procedure set by the Health Ministry.
