Important information for affected drivers:
On 3 December 2020, the Minister of Transport issued a further extension to the validity period of all learner’s licenses, driving licence cards, temporary driving permits and professional driving permits that expired or will expire from 26 March to 31 December 2020. All such cards are deemed to remain valid until 31 August 2021.
JPSA advises anyone who falls within the category above to download a copy of Government Gazette 43958 of 3 December 2020 to print a copy of page 4 thereof and to carry such copy, together with their expired licence/permit with them while driving. This is to avoid entering into roadside litigation with anyone who may not be aware of the said extension, including but not limited to law enforcement officials, security complex guards and insurance companies.
