Tuk-tuk drivers told to obtain licenses or face legal action

Recommended Posts

In a bid to curb traffic accidents involving tuk-tuk and rickshaw drivers, Transport Minister Sun Chanthol yesterday called on all unlicensed drivers to attend road safety training and obtain a license within three months. Mr Chanthol, who is also vice chairman of the National Road Safety Committee, made the call during a meeting on road safety at the Interior Ministry in Phnom Penh.

Mr Chanthol said the municipal public works and transport department found that the majority of tuk-tuk and rickshaw drivers in the capital lack training on traffic laws and a driver’s license. “Among about 20,000 drivers in Phnom Penh, 98 percent of them were driving without a license,” he said. “The law says they must have a license.”

“I asked for permission from Interior Minister Sar Kheng to allow the ministry’s general department of public works to work with the municipal public works and transport department to conduct special training,” Mr Chanthol added. “We will give the drivers three months to attend training before they acquire a driver’s license.” Mr Chanthol said any driver who refuses or attends the training half-heartedly must face legal action.
