He said the license renewal via the application will be implemented in phases with the initial stage only involving private individual Malaysian vehicles.
“To facilitate the public obtain the services of Road Transport Department (JPJ) digitally, renewal of road tax and driving license could be conducted through MYJPJ application from February 1, 2024.
“The move is to facilitate the public obtain JPJ services digitally. The additional functions will help save time and cost as well as reduce the congestion for physical transactions at JPJ counters,” he said in a media conference after visiting Selangor JPJ here today.
He said the reform was based on the readiness of the system and the positive acceptance of the public.
Loke said to encourage the use of the Digital Malaysia Driving License (e-LMM), those who choose e-LMM during renewal will enjoy a rebate of RM5.
“This rebate will be offered throughout the year, which is from Feb 1 to Dec 31, 2024. This initiative applies to those who choose e-LMM during renewal either through JPJ counter, mySIKAP portal, MyJPJ application or JPJ business partners such as Pos Malaysia offices and MyEG Services Berhad.
“This initiative is only for Malaysian citizens and does not apply to foreign nationals or holders of long-term permit passes, MyKAS cards and MyPR cards,” he said.
He said as of Dec 31, 7.5 million users were using the MyJPJ application and the number is expected to increase this year.
“The government hopes that the initiative announced today is an effort by MOT (Ministry of Transport) and JPJ to simplify transactions of LKM and LMM holders and to further support the best digitization services for the people.
“MOT and JPJ also appreciate the support from various parties in the implementation of digitization. I call for the community to be with us to make the digitization of JPJ a success,” he added.– BERNAMA
