One month to send Puspakom inspection report

Postby admin » Mon Jun 23, 2008 3:57 am

KUALA LUMPUR: Beginning today vehicle owners and car dealers will be given one month to submit their Puspakom inspection report for transfer of ownership to the Road Transport Department (JPJ), said JPJ deputy director-general Datuk Solah Mat Hassan.

Previously, the mandatory inspection report was valid for only 14 days.

“We cannot abolish the mandatory inspection but we can extend its report validity for two more weeks from the original 14 days,” said Solah last week.

According to Federation of Motor and Credit Companies Association Malaysia president Datuk Tony Khor, the extension will give sufficient time for necessary documentation such as bank loans and settlements to be prepared.

“Fourteen days is too short a time for us to prepare for transfer of second-hand vehicles,” he said, adding that the move was welcomed by car dealers and the public.

Khor said the association was appealing to the Government to make vehicle inspection voluntary (it is mandatory now).

“Usually, transferring car ownership is done within a family, for example from a father to a son. Hence, we can do away with mandatory inspection if the previous car owner is someone known to the buyer.

“There are also too many second-hand vehicles in the country to go through the mandatory inspection,” he said.

The mandatory inspection by Puspakom prior to transfer of ownership came about last year due to the large number of cut-and-join cars detected in the past few years.
