Note to self: Get RFID done. If like me, you missed out on the Touch n Go RFID pilot programme last year, here’s your chance. TnG is now accepting walk-ins at nine fitment centres across the Klang Valley, offering RFID tag fitment for free.

Before this, one had to register online and wait for an invitation email from TnG. Once received, he/she proceeds to a fitment centre to get it done. Now, one can just go straight to a fitment centre without an appointment.

Car owners are required to bring their IC and a copy of it, driver’s license (or passport for non-Malaysians), and a copy of the vehicle ownership certificate or valid insurance cover note.

As explained before, RFID is linked to the user’s Touch n Go e-wallet account, but the RFID on someone else’s car can be linked to your e-wallet. In such a case, the vehicle owner must provide an authorisation letter authorising the RFID registration and for it to be linked to your TnG e-wallet account. The letter template is available on the TnG RFID registration portal.

The RFID sticker, which is embedded with a radio frequency chip, will be affixed on your car’s windscreen or headlamp. It is unique to each vehicle, weather and tamper-proof. Drive into the RFID lane and toll fares will be auto deducted from your e-wallet. Balance viewing and top-ups can be performed on the app, via online banking and credit/debit cards.

New RFID users will get a 20% rebate on their first 10 toll trips until June 30. The walk-in fitment outlets are open from 10am to 10pm at the following locations:

  • Aeon Big Bukit Rimau, Shah Alam
  • Aeon Big, Kepong
  • Berjaya Times Square, KL
  • Empire Shopping Gallery, Subang Jaya
  • Sunway Velocity Mall, Cheras
  • Tesco, Pusat Bandar Puchong
  • Tesco Extra, Cheras
  • Tesco, Setia Alam
  • Tesco Bukit Tinggi, Klang

In September 2018, we were part of the first batch of Touch n Go RFID users. For a full explanation on how the system works, the installation process and a demo video, click here.
