A series of discussions have been made with relevant authorities on e-hailing vehicle inspection. In its statement, Puspakom corrected the estimation made by Grab that it would take up to 20 months to complete the inspection of vehicles in e-hailing in the country. Puspakom Chief Executive Officer Shukor Ismail also said that not all vehicles are required to undergo the inspection as the requirement for vehicle inspection is applicable to only those that are more than three years old.
“Some reports quoted say there are hundreds of thousands e-hailing drivers in the market, but not all e-hailing vehicles must undergo routine inspection – only those vehicles more than three years old are required to perform a routine inspection once every 12 monthsSource: Puspakom Chief Executive Officer Shukor Ismail, The Star
.Inother words, the total number of vehicles that need to perform the required inspection could be less than the total number of the vehicles in the market,”
Shukor Ismail also said that Puspakom would organise activities that will include briefing sessions with e-hailing operators and drivers to help understand the inspection issue better. He invites vehicle owners to make an appointment at the website or app, and also mentioned that Puspakom is committed to completing inspections within an hour after a vehicle checks in.
“Our customers can make an appointment online at www.mypuspakom.com.my or via the MyPuspakom app before they visit their preferred inspection centre.
“Our customers can come for inspections at the scheduled date and time, reducing their time waiting at the centres.
“We are committed to completing an inspection within an hour from the time the vehicle checks in,”Source: Puspakom Chief Executive Officer Shukor Ismail, The Star
