Puspakom entertains only online appointments


KUCHING: The Computerised Vehicle Inspection Centre (Puspakom) now operates according to appointments made online, says Transport Minister Datuk Lee Kim Shin.

He said this was to reduce congestion as well as prevent people from queuing and waiting too long, which had occurred previously.

“For Puspakom Kuching Branch, the public only has to wait one day for a vehicle inspection after making an appointment online and for B5 (change of ownership), they have to wait for two days.

“Meanwhile, for the other five branches, there are no problems and there is no need to wait. If you make an appointment online today, you can inspect on the same day,” he said as reported by the Sarawak Public Communications Unit (Ukas).

He said this during a visit to Puspakom Kuching yesterday. Accompanying him was Permanent Secretary to the Transport Ministry, Datuk Buckland Bangik.

Lee said the public who wanted to inspect their vehicles should come according to the appointment time set to avoid any problems.

On Puspakom operations, he said the Kuching branch had extended its operations from 8am to 6.30pm, (every Monday to Saturday) due to the increased number of vehicles that needed to be inspected.

He said other branches would maintain their normal operating hours and days, namely every Monday to Friday, (8am to 5pm) for Miri, Sarikei and Sri Aman; (8am to 6pm) for Sibu and (8am to 5.30pm) for Bintulu.

Lee said Puspakom Kuching office would also be relocated to a new area in Kota Samarahan next year.

“The area is larger and I hope when Puspakom Kuching moves to the new site, more vehicles can be inspected and facilities can be added and capacity problems will not arise again.”
