If your road tax has been expired for no longer than three years, you can now have it renewed without being required to undergo a Puspakom inspection.

Previously, vehicle owners had only been given a grace period of up to a year before needing to undergo a vehicle inspection if they want to renew their road tax.

The Transport Ministry says the flexibility is being given after taking into consideration the financial constraints faced by the public due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, it clarified this is only applicable to private vehicles and not commercial ones like buses, lorries and e-hailing vehicles.

The Ministry noted that there are more than 4.27 million vehicles that were detected to have expired road tax of within one to three years.

Meanwhile, it is also urging the public to take advantage of the 70% discount on JPJ summonses, which has been extended until the end of this month.
