That sentence is redundant in English. One would say "Are they allowed to increase or decrease their velocity?" or just "Are they allowed to speed up or slow down?"

kecepatan is speed not velocity. You can have an engine speed but that engine can be going nowhere.

What is the word for velocity?

Kecepatan should also mean speed.
