The JPJL6 lists the driving licenses that are issued by the J.P.J. (Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan) or Road Transport Department.

I always felt the above list was self explanatory until one of our blog reader wrote in to comment that he wished to be given a satisfactory explanation regarding the list of license therein.

Please be informed in this article, two Bahasa Malaysia “terms” are used extensively. They are:

i) S.P. – Sentimeter per segi

ii) B.T.M. – Berat Tanpa Muatan

1) Class A Disabled person’s license for motorcycle and cars.

2) Class B – Motor license for motor cycles (501cc + above) or “Super bikes”.

3) Class B1 – License for motorcycles 251 cc – 500 cc.

4) Class B2 – License for motorcycles below 250 cc.

5) Class C – Three wheeled motorcycles.

6) Class D – Motor car B.T.M. weighing not more than 3000 kg.

7) Class E – Heavy motor car B.T.M exceeding 7500 kg.

8) Class E1 – Heavy motor car B.T.M. not exceeding 7500 kg.

9) Class E2 – Heavy motor car B.T.M. not exceeding 5000 kg.

10) Class F – Tractor / light movable machinery (with wheels) B.T.M. not exceeding 5000 kg.
