My experience on how to renew driving license at post office Malaysia.
It was easy and fast.
The other day I was was shocked to find out that my driving license has expired almost a year ago.
It was renewed back in year 2009 for the period of five years. So it expired late last year (2004).
Thank goodness. Luckily I did not involve in any automobile accident while driving on the road during that period.
Otherwise I would be impose with a fine.
Here is another important matter, all driving license holders should know:
If your driving license is not renewed within 3 years, then you will have to reschedule the test to obtain a driver’s license.
I know the date of expiry of our driving license will be the same with our date of birth.
But the problem is, having a five year renewed driving license is a long time.
Many of us definitely would have forgotten about its exact expiry date.
Currently there are two places where you can easily renew your Malaysian driving license in person:
Renew Driving Licence Online Malaysia
Since January 1, 2018, MyEG has stopped its online license renewal service.
But you can still renew your driving license online over at mySIKAP.
I prefer to do it in person, as I do not like to register online, and having to provide personal information all over the place.
These days, we keep reading about data breach and identity theft.

Then I realized I could renew my expired driving license at any post office nearby.
So I popped over to my neighborhood Pos Malaysia, without having to go to the pusat bandar raya (city center).
It was a breeze…
All I did was I handed over my expired driving license together with my MyKad to the staff at the post-office counter.
Immediately, the courteous awek Melayu staff had it done right away.

I renewed it for five (5) years and it costs me RM150. (RM30 per year)
Since I had it done in the post office, there is an extra service charge of RM2.
And with the Goods And Services Tax (GST), the full amount came up to RM152.10.
That day the post office was not crowded and it took me less than ten minutes to have my driving license renewed.
