Lulu Says Thank You, But Erh....

Concerned about the rising number of students who ride their motorcycles to school without a licence, the Road Safety Department and Safety Driving Centre has decided to offer them licences at a discounted rate from next month.
A survey conducted among secondary school students found that many of them did not possess a valid licence because the cost was beyond their reach, Road Safety Department director-general Datuk Suret Singh said.
“Under the motorcycle licence promotion campaign, those who are applying for the B2 class of below 250cc will get a 50% discount from June 1 to Aug 31,” he told reporters after signing a memorandum of understanding between the Road Safety Department and Safety Driving Centre here yesterday.
The three-month promotion is targeted at secondary school students aged between 15 and 19 and the licence package starts from RM199.
There are no more excuses for students who don’t have a motorcycle licence; they can apply for it at the Safety Driving Centre in Petaling Jaya and Kelana Jaya,” he added

Lulu is wondering, why only one particular driving center?
What if you live in Mentakab, or Sandakan?
or did the reporter report this piece of news wrongly?

Hey PPL,
Why only the "Safety driving school" is recommened by mr.bhai suret singh and not any one of the thousand driving schools for lessons. Safety driving school seems to be entrenched deeply with JPJ DGs. Hmmmmmm Wonder why ?
This school is owned by one BALA{not the disappearing kind} who is the elder brother og GANESH owner of the SEntul FIsh head curry{not the one suggest by the ASP fish head curry to Bala the disappearing kind}.
These two guys have practically bought half of sentul.
Education =ZERO.
Good for them
