2 Reasons Why You Should Not Choose Illegal Driving Schools

As a driving instructor since 1970, that is over 40 years in the driving school business, I need to own a car of my own to facilitate the running of my own enterprise.

In the beginning, I am very thankful to my close buddy and kampung friend, En. S, who runs a driving school of his own. When I needed to obtain a driving school vehicle in order to run my own driving school business, it was this special friend who came to my aid.

All the Chinese driving school operators in Klang district area would not agree to permit me to use their driving school permits. Failure to get a driving school entity to allow me the opportunity would have in actual fact resulted in my running of my part time driving school enterprise as an illegal driving school.

As a law abiding citizen and person, this wouldn’t do. As an instructor, who is now involved in the provision of providing driving tuition to potential students, I am fully aware of the danger of operating a driving school illegally. An illegally operated driving school entity is against J.P.J. rules and regulations.

Besides that, what is more important is, an illegally run business lacks amongst other the following things.

1) No insurance for students.

Students will be exposed to extreme dangers as they will not be provided with the necessary insurance coverage that is required by the Road Transport Department.

2) Bad learning vehicle condition.

Vehicles used to instruct student will fail to have the opportunity to undergo a compulsory 6 month inspection by the Puspakom authorities. This is dangerous.

In short, vehicle of illegally run driving school enterprises will be perpetually hounded by J.P.J. in the constant operations to track down illegally run driving school operators.

After reading this article on how a driving school should ideally be run or managed, it is hoped that readers will be able to possess a better comprehension of the correct way of running a driving school concern.

    Hi, I am an Indian citizen who works in a management consultancy in Dubai. I have just taken up the offer of relocating to Malaysian office of the same company. Is there a need to convert my Dubai driving license to Malaysian at all? If at all, after how many months should I try to get it converted? I prefer using the same Dubai license in KL if there are no implications.

    Also I have a domestic Dubai license….is there a need to convert it to International?

    Thank you so much in advance for your guidance

      If you are going to be here for some time, it’s always better to have your Dubai license converted into Malaysian license, if it’s possible. Again, converting your Dubai license into IDL is always a better alternative.
