In Malaysia, all motor cars, motorcycles and other motor vehicles need to renew road tax to be on the road. Before you renew road tax at JPJ or Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (Road Transport Department) offices, you need to purchase a motor insurance policy from insurance Â agent for Malaysia. Â The Malaysian motor insurance Â policy coverage is valid also for driving across countries to Singapore and Brunei Jurisdictions.
For Private motor cars and motorcycles, you can choose to renew road tax Â for six(6) months or twelve(12) months period. Â JPJ is using computerised Â database for all the Malaysian registered vehicles to update the road tax renewal records. Â As such, all insurance companies in Malaysia underwriting motor insurance or car insurance as it is popularly known here in Penang and other places in Malaysia, have to capture the details of the motor cars and motorcycles and other motor vehicles to match with JPJ’s database of the registered vehicles like:
1) Car registration number such as PLY8888 (for Penang State registered vehicle) or BG1(for Selangor registered vehicle) or W9999W (for The Wilayah Persekutuan or Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur).

Note: All Malaysian registered cars will have alphanumeric registration numbers with prefix of one letter and/or up to three letters of the Alphabets Â serial Â excluding letter “I”, “O” and “Z” followed by numerals from 1 to 9999.

JPJ is continuing to upgrade its system and has outsourced to POS and MYEG for renewal of road tax. Â Its latest service enhancement is the JPJ Kiosks located at its premises which functioned like ATM machines as it allowed the private car owner or its representative or insurance agent to renew the road tax by self-service. Simple steps such as by inserting your Malaysian ID card and digital verification of thumb print or by pre-approved agent’s code, then select whether self or representative and then key-in the registered owner’s ID or company registration numbers and the vehicle’s registration number. Â After that, you can choose to pay by credit card or bank debit card by inserting into the merchant card slot and follow the instruction to key-in your pin. For successful transactions, you will be issued the online road tax instantly and have the option to print a copy of official receipt.
Tips: Please remember to bring along your ID card and credit card or bank debit card and write down the name and ID number of car owner and car registration number to speed up your flow of transaction processing.
Note: The payment by credit card is limited to road tax amount not more than RM300.00 Â and it does not require your PIN. However upon successful payment, your card issuer will send a confirmation via Short Messages(SMS) to your registered phone number.
If that is still too troublesome for you to travel to JPJ or POS to renew your road tax, you can choose to use the online services on your computer or smartphone. Â Of course, the price for convenience comes with a fee of up to RM10.75 for services and delivery within a certain area of service and time elapse. At least, you need not pay for petrol and/or tolls, the wear and tear to your car tyres and engines or risk wasting time caught in traffic jams plus the queuing at counter or kiosk or get frustrated because your car got blacklisted Â due to unpaid traffic offences and you cannot renew the road tax until the summons are settled.
Note: We suggest that you renew your car road tax and car insurance or motor insurance policy as early as one month ahead or two weeks before the expiry of both the insurance policy and road tax to avoid any unexpected delay like computer system failure or offline in the chain of networks within the insurance companies, Insurance Services Malaysis(ISM) for NCD confirmation and JPJ or even the banking system if payment involving banks and/or the ISP system downtime.
