Can You Still Get Road Tax Stickers At JPJ Branches?

JPJ road tax stickers

The Road And Transport Minister, Anthony Loke has ordered several JPJ branches to take down their ‘no physical roadtax’ notice, as a result of a confusion regarding the status of the physical roadtaxes.

While the option to use the digital road tax is now available for Malaysian drivers, you can still choose to use the printed physical version.

Due to a shortage of the sticker stock, several JPJ branches had put up a notice to inform the public that the physical road tax were not available.

This resulted in confusion regarding the status of the physical road tax sticker.  Yesterday, Road And Transport Minister, Anthony Loke has ordered several JPJ branches to take down their ‘no physical roadtax’ notice.

“The (road tax) sticker is still being issued. Several branches ran out of stock and put up a notice that physical road tax was not available but this is not a policy decision.

“We took quick action after finding out branches had run out of stock and ordered new stocks,” he told a press conference in Putrajaya yesterday.

Full digitalisation will be next

Although Anthony Loke did say that full digitalisation will be the next transition for road taxes, it’s still some time away.

The government has yet to decide on a cut-off date for the full transition to digital road tax and vehicle owners still have a choice and can continue using the physical sticker.

“But there will come a time when we will transform to fully digital. No decision has been made yet. It would take six months to one year before going fully digital,” he added.

Malaysians still prefer the physical road tax sticker

Earlier this year, Anthony Loke and the Road and Transport Ministry announced that Malaysians are no longer required to display their road tax on the windshield of their cars.

However, it seems that the move has generated a lukewarm response from Malaysians.

According to Anthony Loke, JPJ statistics showed that only 30% of motorists have made the move towards the digital road tax.
