The MyLesen programme, which is initiated by the Road Transport Department (JPJ), will be relaunched to help unlicensed motorcyclists ride legally at a lower price, The Star reports.

The daily quoted Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, who was speaking to reporters after presenting awards to driving institutions which obtained a five-star rating, saying that the effort was made to ensure all motorists possess a valid licence.

From this Wednesday, the public will only have to pay RM299 for a B2 class licence to ride a motorcycle under 250cc, instead of the usual RM350, the report added. Liow also urged those 40 years old and above to get a license under the Satu Komuniti Satu Lesen programme.

Actually, there’s no new deal or lower price here – the RM299 rate is unchanged from MyLesen’s 2015 price, and the “relaunch” of the programme could mean renewed and extra effort in promoting the scheme. It was reported in October 2015 that the response to the scheme has not been up to JPJ’s expectations.
