Now you have until December 31 to get your 2021 renewals for road tax or driving licences sorted.

The Ministry of Transportation had recently granted another extension for the renewal of road tax and licences, with the date of September 30 fixed, along with the pronouncement that there would be no further extensions.

Naturally, that extension has now been extended once again.

Motorists now have until the end of the year, December 31, to get all their 2021 JPJ business sorted, according to the Transport Ministry (MoT).

“The MoT acknowledges the feedback and difficulties faced by many recently when attempting to use public services such as those under the JPJ and other agencies during the current Covid-19 pandemic,” it said in a statement, adding that any expired documents will not be subject to enforcement action by JPJ and PDRM until after December 31.

However, as before, those with expired road tax must ensure that their vehicles still have valid insurance. Motorists’ insurance e-cover note must be available for inspection purposes.

The MoT also announced that JPJ service counters will be back to 100% capacity, including at partners such as Puspakom. Walk-ins will be allowed from Monday, September 6. Those who want to walk in will need to be fully vaccinated, and their MySejahtera app must show a low risk status. This also means that from September 6, there will be no more appointment system in place.
