All counter services under Transport Ministry closed until March 31

PETALING JAYA: All counter services for agencies related to the Transport Ministry will be closed from March 20 until 31. The agencies include the Road Transport Department (JPJ), the Land Public Transport Agency, the Vehicle Licensing Board in Sabah and Sarawak, as well as JPJ services at post offices. Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong (pic) said besides taking into account public health and those of frontline staff, the decision was made because there were too many people at counters nationwide, which was not in line with objectives under the movement control order (MCO).

“Therefore, all matters relating to JPJ such as the renewal of road tax can be made online via MYEG at “At the same time, all JPJ branches across the country – including enforcement activities and operations – will carry on as usual with reduced staff during the MCO to ensure the safety of road users. “The JPJ will also ensure that all staff carrying out enforcement activities will carry out suitable safety measures,” he said in a statement on Thursday (March 19).

Dr Wee said under measures for the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Measures within the infected local areas) Regulations 2020, which had been gazetted by the Health Ministry, there was no ban against the presence of supply lorries on roads in the two-week MCO period. “Hence, JPJ will not enforce any ban on the movement of such vehicles. This is because JPJ feels that the movement of these vehicles for the transport of daily supplies falls under the list of essential services, stated under the Schedule of Essential Needs,” he said.

The public can email any complaint or query to [email protected], WhatsApp at 019-290 7723 or call the ministry hotline at 1800-88-7723 between 8am and 6pm.

They can also contact the operations centre at National Security Council at 03-8888 2010.
