Drivers with expired driving licences or road tax have been excused from renewing their documents during the ongoing period of movement control order (MCO), according to Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

“Anyone who has an expired driving licence can still use their respective vehicles on the condition that the vehicle has valid insurance coverage,” said Dr Wee. He further advised drivers to bring a copy of their insurance certificates or e-cover insurance notes when driving.

The directive is applicable to those holding the competent driver’s licence (CDL), public service vehicle (PSV) licence, and goods driving licence (GDL). GDL holders will also be exempted from Puspakom inspections and health checks during the MCO period.

That said, all expired licences or road tax must be renewed within 30 days after the MCO is lifted. Prior to this, drivers were told to make their renewals online via the mySikap JPJ and MyEG portals during the MCO period.

According to Dr Wee, the Transport Ministry had decided to adopt this new measure instead after discussing it with various stakeholders, such as the General Insurance Association of Malaysia (PIAM) and the Takaful industry.

“Most importantly, this is done with the purpose of ensuring the supply of essential goods, especially food, to the rakyat will not be interrupted during the MCO period,” said Dr Wee.
