Putrajaya has further extended the renewal deadline for driving licenses and road tax to December 31.

Transport Minister Wee Kia Siong said motorists, however, must ensure that their vehicles have valid insurance.

"They must display their insurance e-cover note for authorities to check," The Star quoted Wee telling a press conference today.

Wee added that with the extension, the public can be assured that no action will be taken against those with expired licenses and road tax, until the ennd of this year.

Wee also told the press conference that all Road Transport Department (JPJ) and Puspakom counters will be open at full capacity for walk-in-service from Sept 6, and there will be no more appointment-based service.

However, those wanting to deal with counter service at JPJ must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and have low-risk status on their MySejahtera app, he noted.

Earlier, JPJ director-general Zailani Hashim had said that motorists must renew their licenses and road tax by Sept 30 and enforcement action will be taken against those without valid documents after October 1.

This was because the renewals can be done online, he added.
