The days of having to grapple with visually untidy road tax stickers will be over with effect from today. That is provided a car owner has already received a softcopy version of their road tax.
These are the words of our Minister for Transport of Malaysia, Anthony Loke Siew Fook. Digitisation has been touted as a viable solution to dealing with the slew of consistent backlash arising from traditional hardcopy paperwork. It extends to the implementation of digital versions of Malaysian driving licenses (LMM).The Malaysian government already has an internal trial to sort out the rolling out of the e-LKM and e-LMM’s digital display mode. You can sort out your e-LKM and e-LMM needs through the Road Transport Department (JPJ) website, which can be accessed at https://public.jpj.gov.my, or the MyJPJ app.
With the adoption of a digital roadtax, there will no longer be a legal need to display a hardcopy road tax sticker. But this change will be implemented in phases, with lawmakers allowing you to still display a physical sticker if you are not ready to go digital. There is one exemption to this rule though - drivers intending to cross the border to Brunei Darussalam or Kalimantan, Indonesia respectively will still be required to display physical road tax stickers.
