The road tax number in Malaysia is commonly called the "Grant of License" or "Lesen Kenderaan" in Bahasa Malaysia. It is a unique identification number issued by the Road Transport Department (Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan, or JPJ) to every registered motor vehicle in the country.
The road tax number is a crucial identifier for your vehicle and is used for various administrative and regulatory purposes, including road tax renewal, vehicle registration, and ownership transfer. It is typically displayed on your vehicle's registration card (grant of license) and printed on your vehicle's road tax disc.
To find your vehicle's road tax number, you can refer to the following:
Registration Card (Grant of License): Your vehicle's road tax number is prominently displayed on the registration card issued by the JPJ. You should have received this card when you registered your vehicle, and it contains essential information about your vehicle, including the road tax number.
Road Tax Disc: The road tax number is also printed on the road tax disc that you affix to your vehicle's windshield. The road tax disc is renewed annually, and the number remains the same as long as you own the vehicle.
JPJ Records: You can contact JPJ or visit their official website to access your vehicle's information, including the road tax number, by providing your vehicle's registration number.
Insurance Documents: Sometimes, your vehicle's road tax number may also be included in your vehicle insurance documents or policy.
Previous Road Tax Receipts: The road tax number may be printed on them if you have previous road tax receipts.
It's essential to keep your road tax number and registration card in a safe and easily accessible place, as you may need them for various transactions related to your vehicle, including road tax renewal, ownership transfer, and vehicle inspections. If you have any doubts or need specific information about your vehicle's road tax number, contact the JPJ or visit their official website for assistance.
