JERTEH: The Road Transport Department will ensure approximately 3.35 million motorcyclists in the country, who have been riding without valid driving licences, to obtain the document within the next five years.

RTD director-general Datuk Sri Ismail Ahmad said this would be done through the implementation of two programmes, namely myLESEN programme for youth and One Community One RTD programme for those aged above 40 in Sabah and Sarawak and above 45 in the peninsula.

He said ever since the two programmes were introduced in 2009, the department had managed to issue motorcycle (B2) driving licence to 62,903 motorcyclists nationwide, 6,668 of whom were from Terengganu.

“The programmes were aimed at ensuring that motorcyclists will be able to ride according to the law,” he told reporters after officiating the closing of the One Community One RTD programme in Gong Kemuntong here on Saturday.
