Victims of the recent floods will be exempted from paying replacement fees for lost or damaged driving licence, road tax and Vehicle Ownership Certificate (VOC), Transport Minister Wee Ka Siong has said.

There is no also no time frame fixed for the replacements to be done, as the victims have other crucial matters to attend to, such as managing their damaged house, among others.

"There is no need to rush to do this. I have asked RTD (Road Transport Department) to help those affected, and if possible, we want to set up mobile counters to facilitate the affairs of flood victims," Bernama quoted the minister telling reporters in Putrajaya yesterday,

According to Wee, those wanting to get the fee exemption, however, have to lodge a police report on the loss of documents before heading to the RTF counters for their business.

For the record, the current replacement fee for driving licence is RM20, road tax for cars (RM50) and motorcycles (RM20).

This is not the first time the RTD has provided such services to the public affected by floods.

It has previously provided similar initiatives to victims of regional floods.
