Pos Malaysia is accepting “walk-ins” for renewal of road tax and driving licences at all post offices nationwide, effective today (Monday, Sept 6). Those who have already booked appointments online can continue with their agreed date or enter post offices physically.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong at a press conference held on Friday last week said, “Customers with pre-booked JPJ renewal service appointments have a choice to continue with their appointments at their preferred date, time and location or just walk-in to any one of its post offices to carry out the renewal of their driving licence or road tax.”
All Pos Malaysia outlets have gone back to normal business hours since 2 August, for weekdays, 8.30am-5.30pm and Saturdays from 8.30-1pm .
Pos Malaysia says it will continue to implement standard operating procedures (SOPs) as directed by the health authorities at all of the post offices, by ensuring all customers wear masks, and social distancing is maintained by limiting the number of customers inside the premises with physical distancing of 1 metre from one another. Temperature checks and scanning of the MySejahtera code will be adhered to as usual.
It emphasised that customers with Covid-19 symptoms will not be allowed to enter any Pos Malaysia outlets.
In August, the Road Transport Department, JPJ, had said that all road users must renew their licences by Sept 30 and that checks on compliance and enforcement would start from Oct 1. However, on Friday Sept 3, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong announced that the deadline for renewal of driving licences and road tax will be extended until Dec 31.
A a reminder to the public, Post Malaysia says “We would like to remind our customers to ensure that their vehicles have a valid insurance coverage and to always display the insurance e-cover note for inspection by the authorities.”
