Loke said if the proposal is implemented, students learning this module would be exempted from attending the JPJ talk.

“They can attend the exams right away as it is not practical to learn and understand everything in six hours. What’s important is imparting road safety knowledge, said the Transport Minister after launching the revised road safety module (PKJR) for primary schools on Thursday (28th February).

Loke suggested that the initiative could be integrated into the school curriculum as 16 is the legal age to obtain a motorcycle licence in Malaysia.

The Transport Minister also added that it would take approximately one to two years to study this new proposal. However, he expressed that this initiative could create interest among students as they would learn all the traffic laws differently.

Regarding the PKJR module, Loke pointed out that the revised module is much more interactive. The revision is done based on its learning content and graphic illustrations. He was quoted as saying,

“We need to see how we can expand the PKJR curriculum into upper secondary by giving more focus to the learning of traffic laws, and not just the concept of road safety.”

“The impact cannot be measured immediately because it is about education and changing the people’s attitude.”

Separately, Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik said they welcomed innovative and creative ideas, pointing out that the PKJR module has been taught in primary schools since 2007 and in lower secondary schools since 2012.
