KUALA LUMPUR: The renewal of road tax for private vehicles can now be done at the Computerised Vehicle Inspection Centre or Puspakom beginning today.
The Road Transport Department (JPJ) said that for a start, the initiative would be carried out in stages involving 39 Puspakom centres in the peninsula.
“The early phase of the implementation of road tax renewals will only involve privately-owned vehicles that are either individually owned or registered under a company.
“Later, the initiative will be expanded to services like renewals of motorcycle road tax and e-hailing vehicles. We expect to do this in November.
“Prior to this, all road tax renewal transactions at Puspakom only involved goods vehicles weighing under 7,500kg (decontrolled) which we began doing last year,” said the department in a statement.
According to the statement, the initiative to add more channels for the renewal of road tax was to improve the department delivery service by making it more efficient and effective, and to give the public more access to JPJ services.
“Those wishing to make online road tax renewals at Puspakom will have to make online appointments at https://lkm-appoinment.puspakom.com.my. Walk-ins are not allowed so as to curb the spread of Covid-19.
“All transactions at Puspakom counters are on cash terms only,” said the statement.
For more information, the public can call Puspakom’s customer service line at 03-51017000 or email email@example.com.
