The Malaysian Transport Ministry (JPJ) has extended the deadline to renew road tax until 31st December 2021. The previously announced deadline is no longer in effect. This means that all road users have more time to renew road tax before the new deadline.
Can I Choose To Renew Later?
Yes. You can choose to renew your road tax later, before 31st December. However, you need to keep a hardcopy of your insurance e-cover note with you. You can use the e-cover note to show law enforcement officers if you get stopped at a roadblock. Therefore, it is important that you renew your motor insurance on time to ensure you have a valid e-cover note.
Do I Save Money By Renewing Later?
No. You do not save money by renewing later. Your road tax will be back dated to the beginning of the car insurance. However by renewing later you can do it at your own convenience. The only benefit of renewing later is to help you buy more time in case you cannot afford to pay at the moment. If you can afford to renew, we highly suggest to renew as soon as you can.
Where Can I Renew?
JPJ encourages road users to renew online using the MySikap JPJ or MyEG portal. However, you also have the option to renew over the counter by scheduling an appointment. JPJ announced that you could also walk in to any national courier Pos Malaysia outlets to renew. You will no longer need to book an appointment with Pos Malaysia.
