RM5 rebate for digital driving license renewal, from now till Dec 31 – RM20 charge for printed physical slip

RM5 rebate for digital driving license renewal, from now till Dec 31 – RM20 charge for printed physical slip

Last month, the transport ministry announced online renewal of driving license and road tax via the MyJPJ app from February 1. Now, the JPJ has released more details, including how to get an RM5 rebate for online lesen renewal.

Valid from February 1 till December 31 this year, the RM5 rebate will be given to those who apply/renew their lesen without a physical print (e-LMM). The licenses included are the application of Lesen Memandu
Percubaan (PDL), the application of Lesen Memandu Kompeten (CDL), and the renewal of the CDL. Vocational licenses are excluded from this ‘promo’. One can only enjoy the RM5 e-LMM rebate once in this interim period.

In a move to push motorists towards digital services, the rebate is only for those who apply/renew e-LMM without a physical printed slip. By the way, if you want a physical lesen, it’s now a paper slip instead of the plastic card that we’re familiar with. When needed, you will have to produce the slip along with your expired lesen card. Those using e-LMM can just show the MyJPJ app to the officer.

If you opted for e-LMM and the digital display mode, and have received the RM5 rebate, but want a physical slip, you’ll have to pay RM20 for the latter – think of this as a ‘reprint fee’. So, are you OK with having your lesen and road tax solely in an app, or do you want something physical? More on the new digital road tax and lesen from JPJ here.

        Loke is basically forcing everyone whether we prefer or not, to go with paperless when this imbecile of a mentri doesn’t have a clue that we need a physical driving license if we want to use car abroad.

        Go fly your kite with fancy plate Loke! YOU are the worst minister in 60 years and when compared with the worst of UMNO ministers, that says a lot!

      Dah lebih 20 tahun masih tak tahu tujuan perbaharui lesen. Bukan ada test pun. Setiap kali kena bayar.

    MOT had better focus on road safety such as lorry brake failure incident. And get rid of unlicensed driver and also those without valid road tax and insurance off the road . These are priority issue to be resolved asap .

    This is a joke lah. Just issue a new card with new expiry date. That was done for about the last decade or so. This laminated renewal slip that looks like it was done in the neighbourhood photostat shop is so 90’s. On top of that you are discriminating against the elderly and less financially able by assuming everyone has and can operate a smart phone. Seriously what is going on in JPJ?

    • It has been said multiple times by JPJ and the police. You do not need to show your phone. They can check their system. If you want to be quick at the roadblock, then show your phone. It’s not rocket science. And for those of you who keep saying police are insisting on seeing a physical road tax and license, are you just talking rubbish or do you have proper evidence?

        JPJ and PDRM pusat say one thing, the officers at the roadblock say another thing. Whose mercy are you at? Is Ah Loke at the roadblock for you to air your grievances? You think people simply complaining about this ah? I’m speaking from personal experience in PJ not anywhere rural.

    Guys,
    If your license is expired does that mean you also forget how to drive your car or ride your motorcycle?

    I would rather have a one time fee of RM100 for new license applications and then the license does not expire for life.
    If one adds other class of driving license, then its another RM100 and does not expire for life

    Benda mcm lesen sepatutnya bagi hard copy mcm IC, sbb bukan semua orang ada smart phone, kadang2 bateri habis, phone rosak, atau server kat jpj hang, tak dapat masuk. Kalau nak digitise, bagilah option.

    I have a printout of the digital road tax kept in all my respective cars, just in case.

    Similarly, I will also keep a printout of my digital license.
