In conjunction with the upcoming Merdeka and Malaysia Day celebrations as well as the Merdeka Month (Bulan Kemerdekaan), the Road Transport Department or JPJ has announced the payment of compoundable summonses are being offered with discounts.
Starting from today until September 16th, compoundable summonses (except court cases with arrest warrants or trial) will be given up to 70% discounts.
The discounts are only applicable to summons issued under the Road Transport Act 1987 (Act 333), Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board Act (Act 334) as well as those under ‘Senarai Hitam’ or Blacklisted.
The discount rate will be calculated automatically under the mySikap JPJ system. JPJ also said the discounts are extended to all summonses that are active and with its compound period still valid, provided that the summonses are paid before September 16th.
Payments can be made online through the mySikap JPJ portal as well as over-the-counter and kiosks. The latter two methods require appointments at JPJ branches as walk-ins will not be entertained.
A quick look at the schedule at a large JPJ branch shows that there are no slots available until the start of next week (August 23rd onwards).
You can access the JPJs Facebook page here for the link to the appointment scheduling page of each JPJ and UTC office to pay the JPJ summons discount.
However, Senarai Hitam or Blacklisted offenders will be required to be present at the nearest JPJ branch or office for the purpose of documentation before the payment can be made.
