Budget 2023: Gov’t to bear licence test fees for B2 motorcycle, taxi, bus, and e-hailing PSV

As part of the revised Malaysia Budget 2023 that is being tabled today in the Dewan Rakyat, Prime Minister and Finance Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has proposed for the government to absorb the driving test fees for the B2 motorcycle licence category, alongside PSV licences for e-hailing, taxi, and bus drivers.

This is similar to what was proposed by the former finance minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz, during the original tabling of Budget 2023 last year.

The initiative is intended to alleviate the pressure within the lower-income community caused by the rising living cost, as well as to assist in micro- and small businesses, particularly in the food delivery and transportation sectors.

The B2 licence tests currently incur a total cost of MR37 split across two parts, and includes rental of test motorcycles as well as the use of the test circuit. However, most driving schools currently charge approximately RM600-800 for the B2 motorcycle licences, as it also includes training sessions.

As for the PSV licences, there is currently a RM20 fee for registration purposes. However, e-hailing operators are still required to have a valid competent driving licence (CDL), plus an E-hailing Vehicle Permit (EVP) that costs approximately RM110, among other training and tests, to be able to ferry passengers legally.
