The Land Transport Information System (or Sistem Pengangkutan Darat – SPD) is officially launched by the Minister of Communications Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Kerna Dato Seri Haji Awang Abu Baker bin Haji Apong today.
The SPD system is a collaboration between various government agencies and key industry representatives such as motor agencies, insurance companies and financial institutions, providing integration of fragmented activities and linking the entire nation on all land transport matters. Accordingly, the SPD System is the first nation-wide Business-to-Government (B2G) e-Government system in Brunei. SPD consolidates the current disparate systems into one single platform, providing centralized information for accurate and updated vehicle records. The new system ensures improved efficiency in processing of applications and permits.
With SPD, queuing at JPD counters to rush vehicle related submissions such as Vehicle Type Approval or Vehicle Registration before the end of a working day promises to be a thing of the past. By logging into https://www.pengangkutan-darat.gov.bn, one can now submit such applications electronically via the Internet at anywhere and at anytime. This translates into time-saving and productivity for both business users and government alike.
In addition, the SPD system will link up the Land Transport Department’s business operation located in Kuala Belait, Tutong, and Temburong with the headquarter, thereby centralizing all vehicle records regardless of the origin. With this consolidated view, Land Transport Department looks forward to improving day-to-day operations and services to its customers.
The services SPD offer over its portal extends to the public. In the near future, the public can look forward to security-enhanced Driving License, Vehicle License and Vehicle Registration Book incorporating high-end technology such as the Machine Readable Card (MRC) and Machine Readable Document (MRD), to replace the current bluecard, vehicle license and driving license.
