All driving licences and road tax must be renewed by Sept 30 – JPJ, police enforcement checks begin Oct 1

All driving licences and road tax must be renewed by Sept 30 – JPJ, police enforcement checks begin Oct 1

The road transport department (JPJ) has reminded all road users that they have to renew their driving licence and road tax (LKM) by September 30, saying there would be no further extension period beyond that date.

In line with the closure of land transport agencies at the start of the full movement control order (FMCO), a leeway for renewals was announced on June 1, in which those with their driving license, LKM or vocational license (PSV/GDL) expiring between June 1 to July 31 were given an extension to renew the documents from August 1 to September 30 this year.

In a statement, the department said that the moratorium would not be extended, and that checks on ensuring compliance and enforcement by police and JPJ will begin from October 1. Until that deadline, all vehicles with expired road tax must have valid insurance cover. Motorists will need to print out and keep their insurance e-cover note in the vehicle and present it to the authorities should it be requested.

It urged road users to do their renewals online via the MySikap JPJ portal or through MyEG. Transactions that cannot be done online can be done at JPJ counters, but only on an appointment basis. Appointments can be made online via the links here.

The department added it had also discussed with Pos Malaysia the resumption of counter services for JPJ transactions, which had been halted during the FMCO. It said that Pos Malaysia expects to have these services available again at all its 650-plus branches nationwide starting from August 9. It said that it will ensure that stocks of licenses and road tax slips are sufficient to meet the expected surge in demand.

      Why people think only can buy from JPJ? Please lah get from MYEG and just pay RM6 for the courier fees, save you the hassle of going physically, lining up, and catching C19. I don’t understand how people are smart to buy stuff online from Lazada & Shopee & Grab & FP but goes into stupid mode when buy from Gahmen.

      • Brian what you said I greed with you from my first thought.. until one day my contract workers come and ask me how to renew road tax nowadays
        they are not highly educated & never buy anything online before like us “consider fortunate..”
        How you expect them to purchase online .. right ?
        all the lock down also effect their income in order to survive…

        Please don’t take my word too personally I just want to share my thoughts during this Pandemic C-19 those less fortunate is really terrible condition ..

      • Could be other reason Brian, MYEG will not agree to print your lesen if your photo record with JPJ is blue background. The only option is to visit JPJ to renew your lesen.

      This is what the JPJ should act on instead off their own convinent and making lives very difficult for the Rakyat. Please wake up and do your job properly by opening up all post office for the convenience of the Rakyat. These is the least you government servant should do for the people instead off every time “JADI BOSS SAHAJA”.

I’ve paid for roadtax on 4th July 2021 but till now cannot book an appointment at JPJ Wangsa Maju because slot is always full and not mentioned which date is available.

      Top management of JPJ or the head of JPJ must resign or get kick out due to inefficiencies for not being able to foresee such a problems ahead & also for not being able to rectify such a problems faced by the Rakyat. He or she is getting paid by taxpayers money to served the Rakyat & not to just warmed his or hers chair. Please wake up & take responsibilities.

    Why Road tax renewal for e-hailing vehicles only 6 months when the Insurance is for one year.
    Why only can renew at JPJ and not at any Post Office or Insurance Agents,or MYege,
    Cannot book a slot for renewal although tried many many times.

    I renewed my license through MyEg in April and they were supposed to mail my new license to me… Fast forward 4 months and still no sign of it. Called and email but no response. I tried calling the branches and kiosks when one of them finally answered… told the guy my problem and he said “Ahh u buat online akan ada risikonya…” Wtf… Why the hell are they directing us to do it online then?? I went to JPJ and they said to contact MyEG again.

    Before making such ultimatums and deadlines, boleh guna otak sikit tak to plan forward? Think la for fucuk’s sake.

    Your own system can’t even distribute the appointments to all the people who need it. Can’t even cross state or districts just to renew driving licence. Online renewal also cannot because you own system don’t allow us to upload our photos. Apa lagi mau? Mau collect saman saja cakap terus la…
