"The first step involves only the collection of foreign vehicles only and does not include motorcycles with foreign registration numbers, "he said in a statement here today.
Meanwhile, Liow urged all owners of foreign vehicles in order to register the vehicle information of each system vehicle entry Permit (VEP) to ensure smooth inflow to Malaysia as soon as the system is implemented.
