On Thursday, 7 June, the Road Transport Department (JPJ) posted a directive on Facebook, ordering drivers and vehicle owners to update their mailing address with the department

JPJ said the order is based on sub-section 58A (1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.

The sub-section requires every vehicle owner or driver's license holder that changes address to inform the department within two months of the change.

Failure to do so, or giving an incomplete or wrong address, is an offence, according to JPJ

mySIKAP was set up in 2013 as a convenient one-stop online platform for vehicle owners and driver's license holders to attend to all matters related to JPJ.
