No issue. I've driven there dozens of times all the way up the peninsular. If anything you get treated slightly better by the boys in blue (waved through multiple checks many times where you could see them laying into some proton driving local off on the side).x9200 wrote:I drove my car to Malaysia a number of times but it was always a short distance to JB and around. Now I consider driving to KL and I wonder what should I expect. What I mean, if I follow all the traffic regulation is it likely I will be pulled over by the police to be "ticketed" just because of the license plates?
Well... if you do get stopped... and I never have... "accidentally" pulling out a 100 RM note out of your wallet while fishing around for your license might be the thing, I have heard. But, I've had a lot more issues with the cops in Thailand, where farang on a bike are fair game for a shakedown in every town.x9200 wrote:Thank you guys for reassurance.

Back when I drove, I had gone to Malacca & Selangor many times, but I did get stopped once about 8 years ago. I was told that a speed camera had taken a photo of me speeding. I expressed surprise & suggested that it might have been another similar car (I had a popular model & colour from the year it was purchased), so I asked (pleasantly) if he wouldn't mind if I could see the photo. I guess this caught the officer by surprise. As it turns out another SG license car was coming up (which, coincidentally, looked just like mine), so they pulled it over & told me to just go.x9200 wrote:Thank you guys for reassurance.
