Proposal to double maximum fine to RM2,000 for those who drive without licence

KUALA LUMPUR: Those who drive without a licence may be fined up to RM2,000 if an amendment to the Road Transport Act 1987 is passed.

This is an increase from the current maximum fine of RM1,000.

Under the existing Act, those who drive a motor vehicle without being a holder of a driving licence or who allow another person without a license to drive a motor vehicle shall be liable to a maximum fine of RM1,000, jailed up to three months or both.

The amendment seeks to provide for a minimum fine of RM300 and increase the maximum fine to RM2,000 for such offences.

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri tabled the Road Transport (Amendment) Bill 2012 in the Dewan Rakyat for first reading On Monday.

The Bill also proposes to introduce a minimum fine of RM300 for offences relating to displaying a vehicle's registration number.

This means that a person who fails to display his or her vehicle registration number in accordance with the Act shall be liable to a fine not less than RM300 and not more than RM3,000.

The proposed amendment seeks to allow a person to make authorised left turns in accordance with traffic signs, lawfully placed on a road, permitting such a move.

However, this is notwithstanding a red signal or other traffic signs indicating a place where traffic must stop at any traffic junction.

The person must also stop before the marked stop line on the road to ascertain if it is safe to make the authorised left turn before doing so.
