KUALA LUMPUR: The Road Transport Department (JPJ) says advertisements claiming that free driving licence assistance is being offered to all groups are fake.
The ads have seen gone viral on social media.
The JPJ response was made through a media statement issued by the Ministry of Communications and Mulytimedia’s Quick Response Team on Thursday.
The department said the viral advertisement was made by a scam syndicate, which had misused the picture of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, to lure public attention and promote the free driving licence, for which the application can be made at a website.
Members of the public are advised not to fall victim to such a scam, but instead to contact the nearest JPJ office to obtain accurate information.
