Having achieved your C.D.L. D License for cars does not necessarily mean you can drive all types of vehicles.

Vehicles owned by Companies cannot be driven by you unless you own or possesses the G.D.L. License (Goods Drivers’ License).

What is meant by company owned vehicles?

Briefly, vehicles owned by Companies which have the Company’s name and address printed at the side of both doors are termed as “Company owned vehicles”.

Only those who have procured the G.D.L. license can drive the above said vehicles.

GDL Malaysia

To explain the matter further, Companies that own either vans or cars to ferry goods or items belonging to the Company will be issued with Permit A, wheres individual or persons conducting their own businesses can transport their goods and they will be given a Permit C.

In this short article, attempts will be made to explain how to achieve the G.D.L. License.

Maybe there are amongst you who wish to know the requirements needed to apply for the G.D.L. License.

The requirement needed are:

i) Posses the Competent Driver’s License (C.D.L) for cars.

As such, this License is not intended for P.D.L. (Learners or “P” Probationary) license holders.

ii) Applicants must be 21 or above.

iii) Possess good health.

iv) Should be citizens or permanent residents.

Generally, non citizens as in Indonesians or Singaporeans are prohibited from applying for it.

The logic behind this decision is the fear that these people might provide stiff competition to locals who are out to conduct small time businesses.

v) Applicants must fill Borong JPJ L8A.

vi) Applicants must also fill JPJ L12.

Photostat copies of your identity card and Driving License are required.

JPJ L8A requires a Panel doctor’s examination of your health.

Likewise, do attach an official Receipt or a Certificate Letter from your doctor.

The above documents will then be forwarded for checking and certification.

If everything goes well, the most important being your license is not black listed, your application will be approved.

In the mean time, your Driving School or Institute will proceed to arrange for you to attend either 1 or 2 courses you will have to attend before you are asked to sit for a 50 questions test lasting 1 – 1 1/2 hours.

Normally, the first course is conducted by the Institute itself.

It might last anything from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

The second course, depending on which Institute you are attending it at, might even involve an official from the Department itself.

Things like the Akta Pengangkutan Jalan 1987, the Akta Lembaga Perlesenan Kenderaan (L.P.K.P) and the Kaedah-kaedah Pengangkutan Jalan are most likely his domain.

The second session of the course ends with as stated earlier, with the 50 questions test.

To pass the test you will have to achieve 42 marks.

In certain places, results are normally announced 1 – 1 1/2 hours after the test.

In case you managed to pass the test, you could proceed to apply for your G.D.L. Payment required is RM20.00 a year.

Those not successful for the exam could apply for a Re-sit later on.

The test and courses mentioned in this article refers to my place only.

In alternative places, most likely these are bound to be differences.

In your area do ask you institutes with regards to courses and exams conducted there.

As a whole, it appears the courses arranged for would be G.D.L seekers appears to have provide them with lots of benefits.

One thing for sure, accidents have visibly decreased.

In short, roads as a whole have become safer.

Vehicles used for carry goods have increased in mechanical soundness due to the 6 months compulsory test conducted by Puspakom.

Drivers who possess the G.D.L. licenses appears to be of better caliber.

All in all, the service provided by the transport industry is definitely one of a higher standard.

The direction to which it has flowed shows the Lembaga Perlesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (L.P.K.P) efforts should be commended.

    Saya seorang sekuriti di sek 28 shah alam. Transporter kami iaitu syarikat VKT sering guna pemandu Pakistan bawa lori angkut barang ke Proton & Perodua mereka tak ada lesen dan GDL tetapi boleh bebas memandu. Mereka pula bukan ada permit kerja dengan syarikat kami tetapi outsorce pekerja ladang. Apa syarat sebenarnya sebagai bukan Malaysia.
    Apakah transporter VKT itu telah melakukan kesilapan dan kenapa JPJ , POLIS dan Imigresen serta LPKP masih belum buat tindakan.

    • Cikgu Yap October 5, 2010 at 3:51 pm - Reply

      Masalah anda amat serius. Orang asing tidak boleh mempunyai GDL. Yang tiada lesen tidak boleh di izinkan memandu van barangan. Tiada permit bekerja salah di segi undang-undang negara pula.

      Pemandu-pemandu yang sedang membawa kenderaan barangan sebenarnya tiada lindungan insurans pula. Kiranya berlaku kemalangan, amat serius dan yang kena cedera pula tidak boleh membuat tuntutan insurans langsung.

      Akhir kata, pihak yang majikan pekarja seumpama demikian bertanggungjawab untuk kemalangan kerkenaan. Saya berpendapat, lambat laun pihak polis, JPJ dan imigresen akan tahu tentang tindak-tanduk pihak yang sebutkan itu dan tindakan akan di kenakan pula.

      No age limit for obtaining GDL & PSV. You can renew the above as long as you are capable of driving. For above tow tests, booklets and texts are provided when you attend the required courses. Malaysian D driving license will enable you to drive only a small bus. Should you posses a Singapore D license, I’m sorry, it cannot be used for driving a bus in JB and KL. By the way, Malaysian PSV and GDL licenses are solely for Malaysians only.

          Transport companies face a shortage of Class E license holders to drive buses. My experience tells me, a 44 seater bus should be only handled by drivers with E licenses. Recruiting D license holders for the above purpose is against the law. Should SPAD conduct operations, drivers of those 44 seater buses will be deemed to have contravened the regulations. Hope you get the idea I’m trying to put across.

          3 wheeled motorcycles, with side car requires a C motorcycle license. The steps and procedures to secure such a license are similar to B2 / B Full licenses. Insurance and road tax will have to be purchased for such motorcycles.

      Normally, lorries are categorised according to its BDM weight. Lorries used to ferry goods, need to have a GDL. If your lorry is permitted to ferry a crew of 6, then a GDL license should be sufficient. This represent my personal opinion only. Anyway to be certain, I advise you to seek JPJ views.

      Dear Desmond, Get proper JPJ form needed to do a medical exam by a private doctor. Get a good driving school to help you with the steps! You will need professional help.

        Dear Cikgu yap,

        Thanks for the info Cikgu Yap.

        I still have some question need Cikgu Yap giving advice.

        As i know have a few type of medical report,should i take the most common one?

        The medical report can i get at any of the clinic or clinic appointed by government?

        It is suppose to go through driving school only i can get the GDL licence?

        • Cikgu Yap June 29, 2014 at 4:36 pm - Reply

          Get medical report meant for ‘drivers’. You can go to any doctor. Most are approved by the government! Role of driving school unnecessary.

    Hi, Cikgu Yap,
    You are a great help to many people, keep it up.

    I have some question… :
    If I have E full license and want to apply for PSV license, do i have to take the 50 question test again?
    Please also advice how i should apply for this, i am thinking of having a taxi business as my retirement dream. My E license is still valid.

    Thank you in advance.

    • Cikgu Yap July 17, 2014 at 8:26 pm - Reply

      If I’m not wrong, you’ll have to sit for an exam paper for PSV badge. Contact an institute for further advice.

    And what is LESEN VOCATIONAL??

      Dear CJ, E licence still heeds GDL. GDL and PSV are vocational licences.

    Dear Cikgu Yap,
    I am currently purchasing a 20 seater van for an international school. Purpose of this van is for the school private use as in to transport the students and teacher for any school activities out of school compound. This vehicle will not be register under BAS Sekolah. Must the driver possess a PSV or normal Class D license will do?

    • Cikgu Yap November 4, 2014 at 8:18 pm - Reply

      Dear Theresa Chin, Irregardless what type of vehicle, it must be duly registered for transporting people with proper inspections and insurance facilities. This needs JPJ’s approval. Medical equipment like first aid boxes and fire-fighting equipment are also needed. Likewise, emergency triangles and cones are amongst other things that are required too. Believe it is unnecessary for me to proceed further explanations.

    Hi, Mr. Yap. I am interested to take the GDL. I have a few questions regarding the license;

    1. Is difference license given to different types of vehicles? I will be driving a company van. Will it be different than lorry license, etc?

    2. Is the license given depends on the load of the vehicle? Mine could load about 3000kg.

    3. How much is the fees for the course, test and license? Would it exceed RM1,000 per person?

    4. I would like to enroll into your driving school in Damansara Damai, if your fees are affordable. Do contact us via email.

      Someone told me driving a Full panel Nissan Vanette C22 not require GDL license if u didnt display company name at van. And this is only valid for vanette c22 only. May I know if this is true ?

      • Cikgu Yap June 26, 2019 at 9:06 pm - Reply

        In regardless whether it’s a Van C20 or C22, the above vehicles remain considered an ordinary transport vehicle if no “Company” names and address is printed beside it. As such “they” , therefore require no “GDL” badge to drive it.

    Correction .. it is not full panel , but half panel .

    Hi Cikgu Yap,

    I want to ask if we need GDL for motorcycle delivery as well? Is there any specific license for delivering in Motorcycle or just a normal Motorcycle would be sufficient?

    • Cikgu Yap August 30, 2019 at 5:32 pm - Reply

      A 2 wheeled motor, my opinion is, no GDL is needed.
