The Ministry of Transport has extended the exemption for private vehicle owners to renew their driving licenses (LM) and motor vehicle licences or road tax (LKM) from 1 April to 31 May 2021.
“However, drivers must have a valid motor vehicle insurance and present their e-cover notes to traffic enforcement personnel upon request,” said transport minister Wee Ka Siong. According to the minister, the exemptions are made in a bid to tackle overcrowding in public spaces.
Individuals whose driving licence or road tax has expired between 1 February and 31 March 2021 must make their renewals within 60 days from 1 April to 31 May 2021. Similarly, those with licences expiring between 1 April and 31 May must renew them within 60 days from 1 June to 31 July.
The transport ministry had provided the exemption for renewals earlier this year for the period of 1 February to 31 March due to the enforcement of the second movement control order (MCO 2.0) in the country. A similar exemption had been introduced during the first round of MCO last year.
