All transactions between the public and the Road Transport Department (JPJ) will be on hold for five days, beginning December 23.
In a notice posted on the federal department’s official website, Malaysians are informed that JPJ plans to upgrade its internal servers from 10pm on December 23, and will only reboot the system for interaction with the public on December 27 at 7am.
The suspension of JPJ services will affect both over-the-counter and online transactions, and applies to all JPJ branches, POS counters, JPJ kiosks, myEG kiosks, Urban Transformation Centres (UTCs) and all online operations between individuals, companies, and JPJ partner companies.
If you’re scrambling to renew your driver’s license, you’ll have Monday and Tuesday left to get it done before you’re stuck in outlaw territory … at least until the New Year. Good luck!
