If your driving licence has expired, you need to renew it ASAP, or you will be forced to retake the full driving test!
Here is what you need to know…
JPJ : Renew Driving Licence Or Retake Full Driving Test!
The Road Transport Department (JPJ) is warning that the moratorium on expired driving licences will end on 30 June 2022.
The moratorium actually ended on 31 December 2021, but many drivers were under the impression that the moratorium was still in effect.
After checking their records and conducting operations across the country, JPJ found that hundreds of thousands of drivers have yet to renew their expired licence.
Thus, they are reminding those with expired licences to renew them before the end of the month.
Right now, those that JPJ caught were “only” been slapped with a fine. But after 30 June 2022, they will be issued with a summons and their licences may be revoked.
These are the four categories of expired licences that may be revoked, if they are not renewed in time :
- Learner’s Driving Licence (LDL) : Up to 2 years
- Probational Driving Licence (PDL) : More than 1 year
- Competent Driving Licence (CDL) : More than 3 years
- Public Service Vehicle / Goods Driving Licence (PSV / GDL) : More than 3 years
If your licence is revoked, you will need to undergo the full process to re-qualify and obtain a new licence.

JPJ : Where To Renew Driving Licence
The four licence types can be renewed at all JPJ state and branch offices, as well as JPJ offices in Urban Transformation Centres (UTC).
However, those with a learner’s licence (LDL) can also renew it in any Pos Malaysia branch; while those with a regular licence (CDL) can also renew it at Pos Malaysia or MyEG.
Please don’t wait until the last minute, as there will inevitably be a rush of people trying to do just that. And the police and JPJ will, no doubt, be conducting more traffic stops and roadblocks to look for people with expired licences and road tax.
Here is a summary of the four licence types, and where you can renew them :
|JPJ Licence Type||Expiry||Where To Renew|
|Learner’s Driving Licence (LDL)||Up to 2 years||JPJ
|Probational Driving Licence (PDL)||Over 1 Year||JPJ|
|Competent Driving Licence (CDL)||Over 3 Years||JPJ
|Public Service Vehicle (PSV) /
Goods Driving Licence (GDL)
|Over 3 Years||JPJ|
