The Road Transport Department (JPJ) will begin implementing the MyLesen programme in every state from April, to enable more people to have motorcycle licences, reports Bernama.

The programme will introduce the Driver’s Education Curriculum – this would provide a clearer and more objective new first stage test that’s based on a different syllabus than before.

“JPJ will work with driving schools to implement the programme for three months in the states. Each state will conduct a MyLesen programme pilot project,” JPJ director-general Datuk Seri Ismail Ahmad said, adding there are currently around 3.35 million people aged 16 and up nationwide who did not possess a driving licence of any kind.

Apart from MyLesen, JPJ will also launch the Kadet JPJ programme in schools from April, to educate the younger generation on road safety.
