JPJ reminds motorists that all road tax and <em>lesen</em> must be renewed by September 30 – no further extension

The road transport department (JPJ) has reiterated that the renewal period of road tax (LKM) and driving licences will not be extended beyond September 30. The department’s director-general Datuk Zailani Hashim said that the extension period that had been given (from August 1 to September 30) due to Covid-19 and movement control closures was sufficient for individuals to renew these documents, as Bernama reports.

Zailani said that besides counter services at JPJ outlets (via appointment, which can be made online via these links), renewals can be made at Pos Malaysia branches via appointment and through its MySikap JPJ portal or MyEG online services to avoid congestion at the premises. “For those who are internet-savvy, we encourage them to renew online, and to be physically present at our premises only if necessary,” he said.

According to the department’s renewal records from August 1 to 15, a total of 639,965 renewals were made via its counters, while Pos Malaysia handled 373,805 renewals, MyEG managed 322,231 and Puspakom, 8,400.

Pos Malaysia, which had halted all JPJ transactions during the FMCO and resumed handling them from August 9, has said that it will only handle renewals on an appointment basis, and these can be made online through its Outlet Finder feature on its website or via its mobile application by selecting the state, post office branch and clicking on the link provided. Customers are allowed to book one appointment slot per day, and a maximum of three transactions can be made per appointment.

Meanwhile, MyEG executive director Datuk Raja Munir Shah Raja Mustapha said the company has seen a significant increase in transactions, but said that it is working to ensure that every renewal transaction can be carried out and sent to customers before September 30.

    Grab driver here. To JPJ and APAD, kindly renew my Evp licence so I can renew my roadtax. Your system is so “effective” that I’m unable to renew my roadtax because of the evp license. Now I have to renew my insurance, and then roadtax because the evp expiry date and roadtax&insurance expiry date doesn’t align. Such bullshit system that penalizes drivers.

    Until you improve your system you have no reason to order us drivers to do this do that or give us bullshit deadlines.

    To people asking : yes I can still drive grab until 30 sep but the thought of looming expenses and the fact that you cannot renew ehailing cars roadtax thru online really frustrates so many people. Have to personally go jpj to renew roadtax. Have you thought about how’s the queue gonna be? Of course not.

    Impossible to book appointment for driving licence renewal on the POS Malaysia’s app for the past 2 weeks. The app is totally hopeless. Tried MYEG online. But the MYEG system does not have a record of my photo. MYEG requires me to get it fixed at JPJ. Tried to book appointment at JPJ. No success either, can only book appointment via Facebook. I do not have FB account. Tried JPJ’s MYSikap online. Registration for login requires Nombor Rujukan from JPJ! But I can’t get an appointment at JPJ in the first place! It is dead end at all 3 channels.

    Commercial vehicles only can be renewed in JPJ which has no slots. Myeg system couldn’t accept it for some reason. If they don’t have a proper system to accommodate how can it be our fault if we cant renew.

    My eg have problem find your vehicle data if you never use their service . Have complaint to them but no action taken
    Pos office system is a joke because lots of people trying to renew before the short date line . How many moths of expired license to fill that short gap. Do yoi think there enough slot
    You ask go use online but do you know that your timing and system is flawed . Please check your resources and plan corectly

    Everyday I go online to try renew my driving licence at JPJ and there is no slots available until the furthest date open. Even Pos offices don’t have any slot available and a click on the CDL license tab showed that it is not available due to technical problem. This is the same at all pos offices in my area. JPJ should first make sure their system can keep up with the volume of renewals during this grace period before reminding the public

  • Went to Pos office 7 times since MCO lifted! 7 times because the first few times, JPJ wasn’t open, Pos Office couldn’t renew licence yet. 5th time, Pos Office said their machine broke, asked us to return a week later. So we went the 6th time, Pos Office said system down, asked us to return in another few days. Went the 7th time, system still down, went JPJ, JPJ said need to make appointment. And their lunch hour is 12pm~2pm, working hour after lunch is 2pm~4pm, two hours. What a shitty country with a shitty system! I’m working everyday, had to purposely set aside time to renew my licence and yet…

  • We understand that time period given to the public to renew roadtax and driving licence bfore the dateline given. For your kind information, I have try to applied or book appoint through the Pos application as stated on how to do it, but fail because all the date was not available, tried several times to get the booking date and Pos malaysia fail to come up with a good idea of doing their work fast. Many people are getting frustrated and angry about not getting things done. Kindly update the system to ease people and also kindly let people walk in to renew roadtax and license. So many pos office in malaysia but work so slow.

    Jpj jangan menyusahkan rakyat dgn memberi tarikh akhir yang singkat. Rakyat bukan sentiasa mempunyai waktu yang banyak untuk membuat temu janji. Sedangkan telah berkali kali dicuba jawabannya tarikh temu janji telah penuh. Ada juga gulongan rakyat yang masih tidak tahu menggunakan aplikasi yang diberikan. Tolong jangan tambahkan kesusahan rakyat semasa pendemik ini.

  • Wondering why all pos office appointment slots unavailable?

    This is because all these pos office ran out of stock (the license card). Not because all slots are taken up. Those pos office even entertain walk in where they have so few customers. The stock is the problem.

    So that is how our government manage our country and burden their citizen. Will saman but no way to renew.
