Easier conversion of foreign driving licences for MM2H participants.
MalayMail report - PUTRAJAYA, Sept 4
Participants of the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme with foreign driving licences will be given special approval to convert their licences to a Malaysian one.
Transport Minister Anthony Loke said the conversion would be granted to those who are eligible, among them individuals who have a valid foreign driving licence.
“Their original driving licence will be converted to a probationary licence (P licence) in Malaysia for a two year probationary period and they must comply with the same rules and regulations observed by Malaysians with P-licences” he told a press conference today.
For those with driving licences from countries not signatories to any treaty or agreement with Malaysia, Loke said they had to sit for the traffic laws and theory test.
“We aim to have this policy implemented as early as November, so the JPJ has two months to make all the changes to the guidelines and to detail any conditions necessary to make it easier for everyone who wants to access this facility,” Anthony said. — Bernama
