PUTRAJAYA – Public can renew their Malaysian Driving License (LML) for a maximum period of 10 years, compared to the current limit of five years.
Transport Minister, Anthony Loke, said that this is one of the two LMM reform initiatives implemented by the Ministry of Transport that the public can take advantage of from May 8 at the Road Transport Department (JPJ) office or counter only.
“Any LMM holder who renews the LMM for 10 years will only be charged for nine years.
“It means there is a 10 per cent discount, for information the driver’s license fee is RM30 per year. If you pay for 10 years at once the fee will be RM270, a saving of RM30.
“For the public who are interested, they should ensure that the remaining validity period of the current LMM does not exceed one year.
“People will also be allowed to renew their LMM between 1 and 10 years according to their choice subject to a maximum limit of 10 years.
However, only 10-year renewals at once will enjoy the privilege of free fees for the 10th year,” he said at a press conference here today.
He said, this initiative is only for Malaysian citizens and does not apply to foreign nationals or any holders of long-term permit passes or MyKAS Cards which are bound by the validity period of the individual’s passport.
Loke said the second initiative is the special permission to renew the expired LMM.
