The Road Transport Department (JPJ) and Ministry of Transport (MOT) have announced that expired driving licenses will be exempted effective on 25 March 2020. Both parties have agreed upon the decision in order to ease concerns of Malaysian road users during the Movement Control Order (MCO).
However, citizens with expired licenses will still need to present valid insurance coverage via certificate or e-cover note if requested by authorities. Once the MCO period is over, it is mandatory for users to renew their license within 30 days.

Additionally, JPJ also stated that renewal of driving licenses and vehicle road tax can now be done online as a response to the closure of JPJ counters at post offices nationwide until 31 March. The online service can be accessed through MySikap JPJ portal for both renewals, while users can also visit MyEG for road tax only. Payment for the service is also done online, with a digital proof of transaction or receipt provided afterwards.
MOT assures citizens that they are not required to collect their updated license card or road tax sticker during the MCO period. Users can present authorities with the payment receipt of their road tax renewals as proof. That said, they are still required to obtain their renewed license card and road tax sticker once the MCO is revoked by the government.
