Standardised motorcycle ownership transfer fee from April 1

KUALA LUMPUR, March 14 (Bernama) -- The fee for the transfer of ownership of motorcycles in Sabah and Sarawak will be standardised to the RM3 imposed in the peninsula from April 1, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai announced today.

The current fee for Sarawak is RM5 and Sabah, RM40.

Liow said the move was to ease the financial burden of the people, particularly those in the B40 group.

He also said that the standardisation of the fee reflected the concern of the government in helping the people reduce their expenses.
