Find out where and how you to renew your driving licence in Malaysia!

 

Why You Need To Renew Your Driving Licence ASAP

The Road Transport Department (JPJ) has discovered that hundreds of thousands of people are driving with expired licences.

They recently reminded motorists that the moratorium on expired driving licences will end on 30 June 2022.

Right now, those that JPJ caught were “only” been slapped with a fine. But after 30 June 2022, they will be issued with a summon and their licences may be revoked.

These are the four categories of expired licences that may be revoked, if they are not renewed in time :

  • Learner’s Driving Licence (LDL) : Up to 2 years
  • Probational Driving Licence (PDL) : More than 1 year
  • Competent Driving Licence (CDL) : More than 3 years
  • Public Service Vehicle / Goods Driving Licence (PSV / GDL) : More than 3 years

If your licence is revoked, you will need to undergo the full process to re-qualify and obtain a new licence.

Fine For Driving Without A Valid Licence In Malaysia

If you are caught driving without a valid licence, you will be fined based on how long your licence has expired.

How Long Your Licence Has Expired Delivery Fee
1-15 Days RM 150
16-30 Days RM 200
31-60 Days RM 300

But as noted earlier, if you do not renew your licence for more than 3 years, you will not only be fined, you will be required to take the driving exam again.

Even worse, you will have to submit an eRayuan letter to obtain a learner’s licence (LDL) which costs RM30, and after passing the exam, you be issued a probationary licence (PDL) for 2 years.

JPJ : Renew Driving Licence Or Retake Full Driving Test!

If your driving licence has expired, you need to renew it ASAP, or you will be forced to retake the full driving test!

Here is what you need to know…

 

JPJ : Renew Driving Licence Or Retake Full Driving Test!

The Road Transport Department (JPJ) is warning that the moratorium on expired driving licences will end on 30 June 2022.

The moratorium actually ended on 31 December 2021, but many drivers were under the impression that the moratorium was still in effect.

After checking their records and conducting operations across the country, JPJ found that hundreds of thousands of drivers have yet to renew their expired licence.

Thus, they are reminding those with expired licences to renew them before the end of the month.

Right now, those that JPJ caught were “only” been slapped with a fine. But after 30 June 2022, they will be issued with a summon and their licences may be revoked.

These are the four categories of expired licences that may be revoked, if they are not renewed in time :

  • Learner’s Driving Licence (LDL) : Up to 2 years
  • Probational Driving Licence (PDL) : More than 1 year
  • Competent Driving Licence (CDL) : More than 3 years
  • Public Service Vehicle / Goods Driving Licence (PSV / GDL) : More than 3 years

If your licence is revoked, you will need to undergo the full process to re-qualify and obtain a new licence.

JPJ : Where To Renew Driving Licence

The four licence types can be renewed at all JPJ state and branch offices, as well as JPJ offices in Urban Transformation Centres (UTC).

However, those with a learner’s licence (LDL) can also renew it in any Pos Malaysia branch; while those with a regular licence (CDL) can also renew it at Pos Malaysia or MyEG.

Please don’t wait until the last minute, as there will inevitably be a rush of people trying to do just that. And the police and JPJ will, no doubt, be conducting more traffic stops and roadblocks to look for people with expired licences and road tax.

Here is a summary of the four licence types, and where you can renew them :

JPJ Licence Type Expiry Where To Renew
Learner’s Driving Licence (LDL) Up to 2 years JPJ
Pos Malaysia
Probational Driving Licence (PDL) Over 1 Year JPJ

Pos Malaysia Suspends Road Tax Renewal!

Pos Malaysia was just instructed by JPJ to temporarily suspend road tax renewal at all post offices nationwide!

Find out what happened, and what impact it has on drivers!

 

Pos Malaysia Suspends Road Tax Renewal!

On 22 February 2021, Pos Malaysia announced that they were instructed by JPJ (Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan) to temporarily suspend road tax renewal (Lesen Kenderaan Motor) at all post offices nationwide.

From 23 February until 31 March 2021, Pos Malaysia will no longer process road tax renewals at all post offices nationwide.

Pos Malaysia will continue to offer all other services at all post offices nationwide, including driving licence and vehicle insurance renewals.

But there is no need to worry about losing your ability to drive, or getting a compound for driving without a valid road tax.

The Ministry of Transport has already exempted road tax and driver licence renewal during MCO 2.0. So you can drive your vehicles as long as you have valid insurance for them.

 

Pos Malaysia Road Tax Renewal Suspension Notice

Here are the official notices on the suspension of road tax renewal at all Pos Malaysia post offices nationwide :
