THE Road Transport Department (RTD) expects the fees for car and motorcycle licences to go down following the new regulation that a licence applicant need only sit for a single road code test.
Its director-general Datuk Seri Ismail Ahmad said the RTD would make some changes in its computer system before implementing the system for a single road code test, Bernama reports.
“The RTD will implement the system as soon as possible for the convenience of all parties and I think the fee for driving licences will be lower after this,” he told reporters after a One Community One RTD programme, at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Sri Muda, Penaga, on Saturday.
The RTD’s transformation programme, which aims to provide seamless services to the people in rural areas, was inaugurated by director-general of Public Service, Tan Sri Mohamad Zabidi Zainal.
The Transport Ministry on Friday announced that there would be a single road code exam for car and bike licence applicants.
Currently, those who wish to get a car or a motorcycle licence have to study the car and motorcycle modules separately, and have to sit separate tests.
