Great News to All Driver As You Can Continue to Drive With Expired Driving License and Road Tax
The government allows private car owners with expired driving licenses and road taxes to continue driving on the road from February 1 to April 30. According to a message issued by the Ministry of Transport, private car owners whose driver’s license and road tax have expired can continue to drive on the road from February to April. During this time, vehicle owners who have overdue road taxes and driving licenses on the road will not be fined.
However, it is important to note that the car owner must have a valid car insurance, and when necessary, a copy of the car insurance must be presented to the law enforcement authorities on duty for review. Also, this measure only applies to private cars, not to commercial vehicles.
Those who hold a commercial vehicle license (PSV) and a Rory driver’s license (GDL) need to continue to renew their license to avoid being dealt with.
Many states in Malaysia are implementing the Movement Control Order (MCO). During this time, the Land Transport Bureau (JPJ) counter only provides the renewal of the Commercial Vehicle License (PSV) and Rory Driving License (GDL). As for the renewal of driving license and road tax for private cars, it can only be done online.
If your driver’s license or road tax expires but you will not be renewed online, you can be exempt from renewing your driver’s license and road tax from February to April.
The Land Transport Bureau (JPJ) is expected to resume counter services from April 1, so car owners are urged to renew their driver’s license and road tax from April 1 to April 30.
