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 =.=

What do you mean thumb print? They have thumb print ready for delivery?

darn it.
looks like I can't get it renewed then. IC is with me.

different topic, does anyone know if I can drive in Malaysia legally with USA driving license?
