Kuala Lumpur: Barisan Nasional Youth (Pemuda BN) and Urban Affairs Secretariat (Sheb) announced that the registration for 1Malaysia Licence Aid (BL1M) programme that should have closed on Feb 15 has been extended to March 1.

Among reasons cited for the extension are the long holidays, not enough time to process forms, interested participants waiting for monthly salaries and crowded financial institutions due to the BR1M payments.

The organisers also announced that they have improved the mechanism for registration by adding 114 BL1M registration centres through MyEg, MySpeed and Komms as well as adding the number of driving schools.

All the information can be obtained by surfing through their website.

Other than registering at the BL1M registration centre, participants can now also pay online using Visa or Mastercard or E-banking MEPS.

The organisers have decided to accept local cheques as well.

Pemuda BN and Sheb also reminded the public that there have been several fraud cases related to BL1M and said they have never appointed any individual as their agent.

The programme that attracted more than 130,000 participants since it was launched on Jan 31 is a community programme aimed at increasing the traffic knowledge and driving ethics among youths in order to decrease the rate of road accidents in the country.

Sabah registered the most participants in the programme at 13,900 people followed by Selangor and Johor at 12,500 and 11,050 respectively.
