Motorists can now renew their driving licence and road tax via the MyJPJ application from Feb 1, says Anthony Loke.

Motorists can now conveniently renew their driving licences and road tax through the MyJPJ application starting from February 1, according to Transport Minister Anthony Loke.

This feature is exclusively available to Malaysians, with an RM5 rebate offered to those opting for digital renewal between February 1, 2024, and December 31, 2024.

“This initiative is only for Malaysians and is not extended to foreign nationals or any pass, long-term permit. MyKAS Card, MyPR Card holders,” said Loke.

The minister emphasized that this initiative encourages more Malaysians to utilize e-services for licence renewals.

Loke also announced the ability to digitally share road tax through the MyJPJ app, allowing users to share e-licences with family, friends, or authorized individuals.

The digitization of road tax was introduced in February last year, eliminating the need for physical stickers on windshields.

The MyJPJ app, which can also access a motorist’s driving licence, is part of the government’s push towards a fully digitized system.

Despite the availability of digital platforms, a survey by the Road Transport Department (RTD) revealed that only 7.5 million people have embraced the digital system to date.

The RTD has issued a security slip as an alternative to physical road tax stickers and driver’s licences for those who may require additional time to adapt to the digitized system.

The government hopes that ongoing efforts by the Transport Ministry and RTD will garner increased public support for a fully digitized system in the future.
