Puspakom centres in Peninsular Malaysia now open for private cars road tax renewal

Following the government’s decision to halt the grace period for expired road taxes, the Road Transport Department (JPJ) has announced that all 39 Puspakom locations in Peninsular Malaysia will be made available in stages for private vehicle road tax renewal beginning September 1, 2021.

The new road tax renewal service at Puspakom outlets is currently offered only to passenger cars, for both private and company registrations. However, JPJ says that they are working to expand the service to both motorcycles and e-hailing vehicles, and is expected to be available by November 2021.

Prior to today, road-tax renewals at Puspakom centres were only offered to decontrolled vehicles (i.e. goods vehicles weighing 7,500 kg and below). The service has been in operation since 2020.

In an effort to prevent overcrowding in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, customers are required to make an appointment online (via the web portal linked here) prior to visiting the outlet; walk-ins will not be entertained. Do note that only cash payments will be accepted at Puspakom counters for the time being.

JPJ is offering 70% discounts for summonses until September 16, 2021. Find out more here.

As a reminder, expired road tax and driving licences will only be valid for use until the 30th of September 2021. JPJ advises road users to renew their documents as soon as possible, and reassures that sufficient stocks of road tax and driving licence cards are available at all premises.

Aside from Puspakom outlets, road users can also renew their documents through the JPJ drive-through counters, online via MySikap JPJ and MyEG, as well as Pos Malaysia outlets (by appointment only).
