I've been reading many posts and news, so I just like to get some confirmation before dedicating time to get the ownership transfer errand settled. I want to transfer from my father-in-law's to my wife's name.
1) Someone stated that during Puspakom inspection, it's best to have the original owner bringing the vehicle, else you have to cook up some referral letter? I think Puspakom doesn't really care about this, as long as you have the grant. That means I can just do this by myself, by having both the car and grant. Correct?
2) For someone who has successfully done an inspection at Puspakom Wangsa Maju recently. Can I call say today for booking, and expect to get one in two days time? In short - just want to get some feel on the 'lead time' for Wangsa Maju Puspakom.
3) Say it is the day of the appoinment / booking at Puspakom Wangsa Maju. How early is early enough, to be among the first in queue? Be there 6 am?
4) My wife and father in law will not be around. Effectively, I am the runner. Is this possible? I guess I need to get TM-AB form done for both? Anything else?
5) I need to buy insurance first, and then go to JPJ to initiate the transfer. Correct? I can just do this at any post office right? I'm staggering the inspection, insurance and transfer to different days so that I could skip taking leave.
6) With the latest MySikap system and its issues, how bad is the experience going to be, or is it ok now?
It's better to prepare the authorization letter in advance before going. Just in case. When you are there, you will need to fill up a form. There's a section where you fill in as representative.
I usually figure out when I can go Puspakom, call and ask for a preferred time. Usually can get. Go early morning say 8.30am, the opening time. You'll be out in half an hour
. There's no queue for me at Puspakom Bangi. I get a 8.30am appointment, be there by 8.15am, wait for them to open, talk to the police office, drive the car in to the inspection bay, fill in form and pay.
Before you do the transfer, make sure your FIL's car current road tax and insurance has already been cancelled. Then buy insurance. After transfer only get the road tax. I guess you can get those insurance from post office but road tax will need to be done at JPJ.
