Documents to bring for roadtax renewal
The renewal procedure is simple and does not require complicated steps. These are the following documents that you need to bring when renewing them at the post office or JPJ branch.
Renewed insurance paperwork
First thing first, ensure that your car insurance is already renewed. Please note that you cannot proceed with road tax renewal without valid insurance.

Original copy of MyKad
Please make sure to bring the original copy of your MyKad. It is necessary to display the MyKad whether you are present as the car owner or on behalf of the owner.
Vehicle registration number and owner’s number ID
Make sure you provide the correct plate number with the number of MyKad. Otherwise, it will cause complications during the renewal process.
