The Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board Act 1987 (Act 334) and the Road Transport Act 1987 (Act 333) are two significant pieces of law that control the road transportation sector in Malaysia. Below is a thorough synopsis of both acts:

Road Transport Act 1987 (Act 333)
The use of motor vehicles on public roads in Malaysia is governed by the Road Transport Act 1987 (Act 333). The act addresses several different aspects of road transportation, such as the licencing of drivers and cars, traffic violations, and road safety.

The Road Transport Act of 1987 has several important provisions, such as:

  1. Driver Licensing: According to the laws, all motorists must possess a current driver's licence issued by the Road Transport Department. The department is in charge of administering driving examinations, issuing and renewing licences, and enforcing traffic regulations.
  2. Vehicle Licensing: In accordance with the law, all motor vehicles must be registered and issued licences by the Road Transport Department. Vehicle licence issuance and renewal, vehicle inspections, and the enforcement of legislation pertaining to vehicle safety fall under the purview of the department.
  3. Road Safety: Many laws and regulations are outlined in the act in order to promote road safety. Speed limits, seat belt and helmet laws, and prohibitions on driving while intoxicated are a few of these.
  4. Traffic Infractions: The statute outlines a number of traffic infractions and the associated punishments. They include monetary penalties, licence revocations, and jail time.
  5. Insurance: According to the law, all motor vehicles must be covered by third-party liability insurance. This means that the insurance provider will cover the costs of damages if a driver is involved in an accident that results in property damage to or injuries to third parties.

Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board Act 1987 (Act 334)

In Malaysia, commercial vehicles like buses, taxis, and trucks are subject to licencing and regulation under the Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board Act 1987 (Act 334). The Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board (CVLB), which is in charge of issuing and renewing licences for commercial vehicles, is established by the statute.

The Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board Act of 1987 contains important clauses, such as:

  1. Commercial vehicle licencing: According to the act, the CVLB must issue licences to all commercial vehicles. The board is in charge of conducting vehicle inspections, issuing and renewing licences, and enforcing laws pertaining to vehicle safety.
  2. The act specifies a number of requirements that commercial vehicles must meet in order to receive a licence. They include specifications for the weight, dimensions, and safety equipment of the vehicle.
  3. Fees and Charges: Under the legislation, the CVLB is empowered to control the fees and charges that commercial vehicle operators may impose. The board is in charge of establishing rates that are reasonable and fair for both passengers and operators.
  4. Complaints and Disputes: The act creates a procedure for resolving grievances and conflicts between drivers of commercial vehicles and their passengers. The CVLB is in charge of fairly and promptly settling disputes and conducting investigations into complaints.
  5. Commercial vehicle operators who violate the law are subject to a number of offences and penalties listed in the act. They include monetary penalties, licence revocations, and jail time.

In summary, two significant pieces of law that govern Malaysia's road transport sector are the Road Transport Act 1987 and the Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board Act 1987. The acts are intended to guarantee that Malaysia's roads are safe and effective for all users and include a wide range of matters pertaining to vehicle licencing, commercial vehicle regulation, and road safety.
