JPJ To End Road Tax & License Moratorium On 30th Sept
Enforcement on compliance by JPJ officers are also set to begin from the 1st of October.
Due to the nationwide lockdown that was imposed at the beginning of June over here, Malaysian motorists whose driving licence were set to expire between June 1st and July 31st were previously given an 60-day renewal extension by the road transport department (JPJ). This leeway however is set to expire on the 30th of September, and JPJ has recently reminded road users that there is to be no further extension to the grace period beyond that date.
That therefore means that motorists will now have until the 30th of September to ensure that their driving licence and road tax (LKM) are up to date. And to make sure that is the case too, JPJ has also announced recently too that checks on compliance and enforcement by its officers are set to restart once again on the 1st of October.
Now in light of this upcoming end to the extension and the still ongoing MCO restrictions, JPJ has thus urged vehicle owners to perform renewals online via the MySikap JPJ or MyEG portals. As for transactions that cannot be done online meanwhile, all of its branches nationwide are currently operational, though only by an appointment basis.

JPJ has also noted that national courier Pos Malaysia is expected to start handling JPJ transactions at its over 650 branches nationwide from the 9th of August onwards. “We will make sure stocks and supplies of licences and road tax documents are sufficient in anticipation of a surge in renewals later,” it added in a statement.
