MOT: 30-Day Extension For Driving Licence And Road Tax Renewal
Author Avatar

The Malaysian public has until 30 September 2020 to renew their driver’s licence and motor vehicle licence, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong. This follows as the exemption to those with road tax and licences that expired during the movement control order (MCO) period officially ended on 31 August.

“Due to the extension of the movement control order (MCO) after August 31 as announced in the special message of the Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin yesterday, then this exemption will be terminated through a specific revocation instrument,” said Wee in a statement. “However, members of the public with expired licences are still given time to renew them within 30 days until September 30.”

Earlier in March, the Ministry of Transport had issued a directive allowing drivers with expired driving licences or road tax to be excused from renewing their documents during the MCO period – as long as the vehicle still had valid insurance coverage. It was stated then that expired licences or road tax would only have to be renewed within 30 days of the lifting of the MCO.

“Since the implementation of the recovery MCO, all RTD counters are fully operational as normal,” said Wee. However, he cautioned the public to always comply with standard operating procedures when visiting Road Transport Department (RTD) counters or any agencies in an effort to contain the spread of Covid-19.
