(Phnom Penh): Being committed to move forward with the enforcement of the new traffic law and encouraging people to acquire driving licenses, Prime Minister Hun Sen announced Tuesday that service fees for a moto-driving license would be decreased to 25,000 Riel (USD 6.25).
The premier made the remarks Tuesday morning during the inauguration of the 4th overpass at the intersection of Russian Boulevard with Mao Tsetung and Kim Ilsung Boulevards, in Tuol Kork district.
Addressing the concerns expressed by Facebook users over high cost of driving licenses, Prime Minister Hun Sen said that the previous license fee of Riel 74,000 (USD18.5) including medical check would be reduced 25,000 Riel and that there would be no more driving-exam nor medical check required.
However, the premier recommended that education spots on the traffic law should be comprehensively produced and broadcasted.
He also told the audience that the fee for the replacement of the new driving license would cost only 20,000 Riel (USD5.00).
