Hi guys.
Need help.

I am currently overseas and by the look of things, I won't be back to Malaysia until sometime later when it is easier and safer to travel.

My wife's driving license is expiring in September and mine in December this year.

I don't have JPJ's mySikap portal accounts, so I can renew online through it.
It seems MYeG does not have that option now either.

Is there any other way to renew online?

If not, I believe the next best option for me is to mail my driving license my copy of my ICs to my relative in Malaysia and help me renew at Pos Office.
I remember that can be done without me there or without the need of passport sized photo.
Anyone renewed their license at post office recently? Can you share what documents are needed?

Thank you very much.

Thanks!

I was looking for some info on that.

I guess if no choice, I will renew when I go back next year. But definitely will get fined. Possibly RM300 or more.

Hi there.. I just did a driving license renewal with MyEg... You can get it posted to ur relative's place, but I'm just afraid when ur license arrives, their delivery boy might request for ur thumb print...

I just now susah payah tried to take photo and edit the background... Padahal, the system just use back the old photo with no option for me to upload new photo =.=

Hi guys, i have just come back from Sydney after being locked in Aust since Jan 2020.

My driver's license has expired June 2020 and i was just released from quarantine one week ago. I went to the post office but they were not able to renew since it is mco. Does anyone know whether we can renew at the post office if the license has expired one years ago or do we need to go to JPJ?

Thank you.

The old photo just popped up itself, and it doesn't even allow me to upload a new photo...

Perhaps you could try emailing MyEG to get them to manually upload ur photo?

PS: nowadays, MyEG account, better to do things within your ownself.... i.e. Own IC, renew own license and not to renew other's license on behalf... you gotta make a new account for that person if you want to do on behalf
