PROBATIONARY DRIVING LICENSE

PROBATIONARY DRIVERS

All new drivers will be issued a Probationary Driving License and they will have to undergo a two-year probationary period before they can obtain a Competent Driving License (CDL)

During this period these drivers will have to exhibit their "P" plates on the top left-hand side of the front and rear windscreens of their vehicle. For motorcyclists, the "P" plates have to be placed above or below the headlights and above or below the registration plate at the rear. Other conditions for probationary drivers are:

i) ensure that the Proportion of alcohol in his breath, blood or urine is at 0.00 level

ii) at all times carry his probationary driving license while driving

Those who fail to display their "P" plate and other conditions could be fined up to RM1,000 and jailed up to 3 months for the first offence. They will also be given a 10 demerit point penalty under the KEJARA Demerit System for failure to display their "P" plate and 5 demerit points each for the violation of the other 2 conditions. Probationary drivers who record 10 demerit points will have their licenses revoked. New drivers of heavy vehicles (Class E, E1 and E2) must first possess a Class D driving license and undergo the 2 year probationary period.
