Based on the latest by JPJ, we are allowed to drive our vehicles even if our driving licence has expired.
According to news by Astro Awani, the public has been granted permission to drive their vehicles even if their licence (LKM) has expired during this MCO period. However, that is only with the exception that our vehicle insurance is still valid.
JPJ in a statement today (6th May) owners of private vehicles were still exempted from renewing their MVL and driver’s licence during the MCO period, as per announced by our Transportation Minister Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong on the 24th of March.
But, JPJ has now allowed Pos Malaysia to carry out licence renewal services for privately owned vehicles.
“JPJ understands the public’s grouses on JPJ office counters currently only catering to commercial vehicles and certain types of transactions,” the statement said.
JPJ counter transactions were also being expanded in stages to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19, reported Malay Mail.
“To support economic activities to resume, the current focus (at JPJ counters) is on commercial vehicle transactions only.”
“JPJ will gradually open up counters for other transactions including those related to private vehicles.”
