Previously, MOT has announced that road tax renewals are exempted up until 31 March which means that it may be extended up until 31 May 2021. 

The Minister of Transport, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong today revealed that his ministry is currently planning to extend the exemption period for the renewal of road tax for private vehicles for another two months. As reported by national news agency Bernama, Wee, who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ayer Hitam was quoted of saying the matter during an event in Batu Pahat today.

However, the exemption are only applicable to those who have a valid motor vehicle insurance. Wee said,

“I have discussed about the exemption extension with the Road Transport Department (JPJ) director-general for them to make necessary preparations as there are still states that recorded a high number of COVID-19 cases such as Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.”

Furthermore, the Ministry is also looking for ways to avoid congestion at JPJ counters once the exemption period is over. Wee said that the Transport Ministry may introduce the settlement of unpaid road tax cases in phases.

In fact, circumventing the crowding of JPJ counters was one of the reasons given by the Ministry when they announced the exemption of road tax renewal for private vehicle owners back in January 29. If this latest exemption extension were to happen, it means that private vehicle owners only have to renew their road tax after 31 May 2021.
