Are you a Malaysian citizen who owns a private vehicle? If so, we have some great news for you. The Road Transport Department (JPJ) has announced that it will no longer require physical copies of road tax and driver’s licenses for private vehicles. This means that you can now submit digital copies of these documents instead. In this blog post, we’ll explore this new development and explain why it’s so beneficial. So, if you’re looking for a more convenient way to keep your documents up-to-date, you’ve come to the right place!

Malaysian Citizens No Longer Required to Carry Physical Copies of Driver’s Licence & Road Tax

Today, Transport Minister Anthony Loke announced that Malaysian citizens with private vehicles no longer need to carry around a physical copy of their driver’s licence or road tax. Instead, the JPJ Public Portal and MyJPJ mobile app can be used for eLKM (road tax) or eLMM (driver’s license). Both are available on Apple App Store, Google PlayStore and Huawei AppGallery. This digitalisation initiative is only limited to private vehicles and motorcyclists at this stage.

However, drivers with learners permit, vocational permit as well as foreign nationals will still be required to have physical copies of their licences for now. Foreigners with either a local or foreign driver’s licence must also display their road taxes physically too if the car is company owned/non citizen registered. Enforcement checks can be done through number plate recognition system which reduces need for road blocks affecting everyone on the road.

For inquiries related to this digitalisation initiative please contact JPJ hotline 03 2724 2522 or email email protected.


Overall, this is great news for Malaysians who own private vehicles, as they can now submit digital copies of their road tax and driver’s license documents. This will make the process much more convenient and efficient. So, if you are looking to update your documents, take advantage of this new initiative today!
