The Ministry of Transport has extended the renewal period for expired Motor Vehicle Licenses (LKM) and Malaysian Driving Licenses (LMM) until 31 December, 2021.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong was quoted by Berita Harian saying that any LKM and LMM owners whose validity period has expired, will not be subject to enforcement and compliance action by the Road Transport Department (JPJ) and the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM).

However, he said, the owner of LKM whose validity period has expired still needs to ensure that the vehicle is covered by valid insurance, and display and show a valid Certificate of Insurance Coverage for inspection.

The Ministry of Transport is very sensitive to the feedback and difficulties of the public in using the services of agencies under it such as JPJ, when the country was hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. In this regard, the Ministry of Transport has decided to extend the renewal period of LKM and LMM until 31 December 2021.
