Kuala Lumpur: A total of 3.78 million vehicles throughout the country have yet to renew their Motor Vehicle Licence (LKM), better known as road tax, as of Nov 16, according to the road transport department (JPJ).

JPJ deputy director-general (planning and operations) Aedy Fadly Ramli said the owners of these vehicles have until Dec 31 to renew their road tax.

He advised them not to wait until the last minute to renew their road tax as this could cause congestion at JPJ counters, which are also open on weekends until Dec 31.

“They can go to any JPJ branch and the opening hours are listed on the JPJ website,” he told reporters after an integrated road traffic operation at the Sungai Besi Toll Plaza here at midnight last night.

He said road tax renewals can also be done online and those with expired road tax after Dec 31 would face legal action.

“For now they still have a chance to renew their road tax but after Dec 31 there will be no more warning or extension of the grace period,” he added.

It was previously reported that JPJ will also provide its mobile facility for the public to renew road tax and driving licences.

In September, transport minister Wee Ka Siong said the grace period for renewal of road tax had been extended to Dec 31 but the vehicles must have valid insurance policies.
