Transport minister Anthony Loke meets JPJ, promises ‘big change’ in quality of road tax stickers this year

Road tax stickers of dubious quality. So many have complained about this over so many years, and it will finally be addressed this year. Yes, a “big change” will be coming in 2023, according to transport minister Anthony Loke.

The returning MoT minister met with the management of the JPJ yesterday afternoon and received a briefing on the road transport department’s plans for the new year.

Loke shared that among the main agenda for JPJ this year is to implement digitalisation in its core services to the rakyat, such as licensing of vehicles and drivers. Also on the cards is the strengthening of enforcement of road regulations.

“I know that many have complained about quality of road tax stickers. This issue is in our attention and a big change will be implemented this year,” the Seremban MP said. “Any implementation of new initiatives will be planned properly and I will make announcements when full preparation is made,” he added.

“Our main agenda is to simplify things for the rakyat and I don’t want to see people in long queues at JPJ offices, which troubles them,” Loke added.

    Use Indonesia’s as example. Plate number issued by RTD with roadtax expiry stamped on it. Settle our issue with roadtax sticker & illegal/fancy plates. Clean, sticker-free windscreen.

      Not really a road tax. It lesen kenderaan motor. Approval the vehicle can use on road. Not lesen if no roadworthyness

  • This has been a long time coming. the sticker really sucks. so many years JPJ has not been doing their job properly. Overpaid. Not manage by capable people. It takes a capable minister to drive it. Anthony has learn a few things such as what is a need and what is a must. The last time he was in charge, much effort was wasted on dark tinting which does not benefit most of the masses and ordinary people. it helps the rich such as alphard owner with dark tinted window.

    We want big changes with big effect. Not ‘big changes’ with small effect.

    Dumbest Transport Minister still haven’t got the clue? Go ask from previous minister how to do it.

    E-roadtax please. There is absolutely no need to stick some stickers on the windscreen. Enforcement agents can check using their handheld devices kan

      Cannot. If use device to check, if suddenly there are many enquiries from certain device/login when there is no “sanctioned/approved” road block planned, MACC can straight know this a “Cari Makan Operasi”. hahahaha

    Many people here comments about this small change but when ask them to renew Roadtax and stick it on their windscreen they complain. Those people who expect a Big change is surely a failure in life. Because they don’t no every small changes makes a big step toward big changes.

  • Why not just start making rfid plate that can be updated by NFC? That way enforcement can be done automatically by overhead cam

    Hundreds of cars running without the correct size of numbet plates. Why JPJ cannot take action. Not according to correct specification.

    Many years ago we had a spate of broken car window (to steal road tax disc) cases. Presumably, the stolen road tax will be used in a vehicle with corresponding fake registration plate.

    I thot this new road tax was intentionally designed to overcome that problem ie it will easily tear n rendered unusable again. A disincentive to steal.

    The Asia highway from Tamparuli to Ranau is full of holes specially made from corruption carried forward from the last administration. People do die from these rotten cheap unmanaged and improper materials. Heavy overloaded vehicles are often seen on this road yet JPJ officers are blind to this. Maybe, they are told to not disturb these vehicles because someone’ somebody up in the rank have a share on the private company that’s under equipped to do such repairs.
    That’s my thoughts on this problem that has been here for years.
    The rich may not realise this but the poorer citizens surely does go through this mostly because most of them lives along the mentioned road. Absorbers are expensive and so are spare parts too.

    Dear YB, I was at JPJ Klang. I queued at the warga emas counter. I came at 1.15pm not realising all counters are closed until 2pm. I thought it would be a quick process because the counter is for warga emas and OKU. My request was to get a copy of my car registration card. I need the card to sell off the car used by my son who just died 5 days earlier. I had to fill few borang and suddenly the counter require a photocopy of my identity card. Again i had to move away from the counter and beratur lagi just to print a copy of my IC. The guy managing the photocopy machine was rude when one of the customer requested to speed up a bit. He said ‘SAYA ADA DUA TANGAN SAHAJA!!!!
    YB, Please revamp the system. Where is the Digital approach that we have been told that digitalisation is part of JPJs new way of serving the people.
