Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong told the Dewan Rakyat that his ministry had never ordered that senior citizens above the age of 70 years old would have to surrender their driving licences.

The Ayer Hitam MP said the ministry has never made such a requirement as driving competency is not based on an individual's age.

He was responding to a supplementary question from Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh (PH-Ledang) during Ministers' Question Time on Tuesday (Sept 28).
