PLMSB provides Driver License Training Courses using its fleet of about 100 vehicles in different vehicle categories such as Motor Cycle, Light Motor Vehicle (Car), Lorry, Trailer, and Tractor.

Around one million students have acquired their driving licenses from PLMSB since its inception. PLMSB has over 80 qualified instructors of different races who can instruct the students in their primary language, making it easier for them to take their drivers training.

PLMSB’s premises is equipped with numerous public service facilities. These include registration area, cafeteria, lecture theatres, simulator training, a state of the art training circuit where students can practice parking, uphill starts and other elements of vehicle control before venturing on to the public road system.

The Company is managed by a very strong and profound management team. Mr. Samuel B. J Tan is the CEO of PLMSB. He has more than 30 years of proven leadership and management experience, in areas of operation & facilities management, human resources & administration, local authorities, pastoral care & counselling, security & safety, and sales & marketing.

To the team, the most important aspect of driver education is “safety”. The Company holds by its core values of teamwork, honesty, integrity, adding value, and excellence.

With the advent of Industry 4.0, PLMSB is embarking on a journey of digital and technological adoption. In 2017, it acquired a new computer system called E-Driving Software which is tailor-made for driving centres where it is mandatory for all teachers and students to “thumb-in” and
“thumb-out” their finger print prior to and after their driving lesson, thus maintaining proper control and documentation. Furthermore, the Company is registered with Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan’s (JPJ) ‘Portal Rakan Niaga mySIKAP’, where they are able to perform JPJ transactions on-line.
