If you have a car or motorcycle with an expired road tax of less than three years, you can now renew it without getting it inspected over at PUSPAKOM. This was announced earlier by Malaysia’s Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Sion.
The announcement was made yesterday during a collaboration program signing ceremony between the Road Transport Department (JPJ) Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and the Department of Skills Development (JPK).
The move was announced due to the fact that over 4.27 million private vehicles here in Malaysia were found to have expired road tax or Motor Vehicle Licence (LKM) between one-three years. Prior to this new announcement, any private-owned vehicles will need to get them inspected at PUSPAKOM if the road tax has expired for more than a year or 12 months.
COVID-19 has wreaked havoc to economies and livelihoods of many folks not just here in Malaysia, but around the globe. With inspections at PUSPAKOM requires more money to be spent to get the vehicle road-legal again, the government has decided to extend this period to 36 months. In order words, you can get your new road tax straight from JPJ without getting the vehicles inspected.
