Yesterday (4 August), the Road Transport Department (JPJ) had announced that all road users must renew their licences and road taxes by 30 September as there will be no more extension to the grace period given.
According to the statement made on Facebook, JPJ said that these licences include the Competent Driving Licences (CDL), Motor Vehicle Licences (LKM or road tax), Goods Driving Licence (GDL) and the Public Service Vehicle (PSV) license.
“Vehicle owners whose road taxes have expired have to ensure they have valid insurance coverage and can produce their e-cover note upon request by authorities when on the road.” JPJ said in the statement.
“The moratorium period or extension of the deadline for renewals of LKM and CDL will stop on 30 September.”
“Checks on compliance and enforcement by JPJ enforcers will start from Oct 1 onwards.” they added.
If faced with matters that cannot be solved through the online portal, they added that members of the public can make an appointment before heading to the JPJ counter.
The statement also said that the JPJ officials and police officers will conduct compliance checks and enforcement starting 1 October.
JPJ added that they have discussed with national courier, Post Malaysia to resume counter services for JPJ transactions at its 650 branches nationwide starting 9 August.
“We will make sure stocks and supplies of licences and road tax documents are sufficient in anticipation of a surge in renewals later.” it added.
