PUTRAJAYA: Plans to digitalise vocational driving licences and other services by the Road Transport Department (JPJ) are in the works, says the Transport Minister. Anthony Loke said the Public Service Vehicle (PSV) and Goods Driving Licence (GDL) would eventually go digital under the ministry’s push to digitalise the national transport ecosystem.
“We have already completed the digitalisation of road tax and driving licences, with PSV and GDL licences to follow later. Eventually, everything will be digitalised,” he said after attending a PSV ehailing licence handover ceremony at the ministry here yesterday.
Loke said all vocational licence candidates would still be required to have a physical licence, adding the ministry would work with industry players to make collection of licences more convenient.
“We plan to coordinate with ehailing service providers on the possibility of delivering the licence to riders without needing them to physically come and collect it from the JPJ counters,” he added.
