Have your Motor Vehicle Licenses (LKM) or Malaysian Driving Licenses (LMM) expired? Chances are it has. We haven’t had the need or means to renew our road tax and driver’s licence since the pandemic hit last year.
If you still want to check, your road tax expiry date is printed on that sticker on your car window and your driver’s licence will expire on your birthday.
Just before the weekend, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong announced the extension for expired Motor Vehicle Licenses (LKM) and Malaysian Driving Licenses (LMM) until 31 December 2021.
He also mentioned that the Road Transport Department (JPJ) service counters will be running at 100% capacity and walk-ins will be allowed starting Monday, 6 September.
Over the weekend, Pos Malaysia followed suit and announced that the public would also renew their road tax or driving licences by just walking into any Pos Malaysia branches nationwide.
Although the online appointment system will no longer be in use, there are a few caveats. You have to be fully vaccinated and have a low-risk status to walk into a JPJ office or Pos Malaysia branch to renew your driving license and road tax.
But There Is A Better Way
Did you know that you could renew your driving license and road tax online? Of course, you do.
Although you will not get the card or car sticker immediately, and it will cost a bit more for postage, it might be worth it just to avoid the crowd and the long queue.
Whichever method you choose, remember, the extension only lasts until the end of this year. The JPJ and PDRM will not accept excuses after that.
