unnamed e-hailing company licence cancelled due to non-compliance, drivers advised to check operator validity

The Ministry of Transport (MoT) has issued a statement that it has cancelled the e-hailing licence (LPP) of an unnamed e-hailing company due to non-compliance. Continued operation will result in suspension and legal action from the Ministry.

In the statement, the unnamed e-hailing company failed to comply with the criteria required to renew their LPP as stipulated under the Land Public Transport Act (Act 715).

Under Section 12A(8) of Act 715, e-hailing companies are required to ensure their e-hailing application (app) displays the eVP of drivers or allow passengers to identify the drivers on their smartphone apps.

The company has to date failed the requirement and, according to MoT’s statement, has violated necessary safety and security compliance when using any e-hailing app.

Due to this, the Land Public Transport Agency (APAD), which issues the LPP to e-hailing companies, has cancelled the company’s LPP on 14-July-2022. APAD has also issued a show-cause letter to the company on 18-August-2022.

In the same statement, MoT also reminds e-hailing companies that operating an e-hailing service without a valid LPP is liable to a fine of not more than RM 500,000 or jail of not more than three years or both if convicted.

Drivers associated with such apps are advised to check the validity of the e-hailing operators which they are engaged with to avoid any unwanted liability.

As of 16-August-2022, there are a total of 30 e-hailing licenced companies registered under APAD. You can check the validity of operators here.
