So I am in the same situation you were in now, going through the e-journey and am trying to figure out how to convert my driving license. With the borders still closed, did you manage to find a way to get the letter from JPJ ?

hi, i have done the conversion without having to travel to malaysia. you can get someone to help you retrieve the JPJ letter on behalf, i asked my brother for help, paid Rm10 for the letter and my bro mailed it to me together with the receipt.

while waiting for the letter to reach me I registered an online account with Comfortdelgro driving school, paid $30++, and booked a slot for BTT.

took the BTT and proceed to traffic police Ubi office to do the conversion, last time it can be done at the same building as BTT but they no longer have their traffic police counter in the same building so need to walk over to traffic police ubi office. i'm staying in the east so ubi is the nearest to me to get it done.

i had my PR for 3 yrs and still able to convert the license. i think after renunciation can still convert within 3 months.

first of all you need to get the JPJ letter first before you do the rest. JPJ letter has validity of 6 months, means you have to convert your license within 6 months from the letter date.

hi, i'm getting a friend in JB to help me, may i know what documents do we need to submit to JPJ and do you prepare an authorisation letter to your brother in order to retrieve the JPJ letter on behalf?

Thanks!

yes i prepared an authorisation letter to my brother and also they'll give a form to sign and pass back to them, if you have a printer/scanner at home you can do it at once otherwise ur fren will hv to go back twice i guess.

Hi Nat0 and la9, did you manage to convert your license in the end? This covid period is incredibly difficult to book a BTT (2 months just to make an appointment just to head down to book a BTT slot which is probably another month away). Is there a deadline after renunciation on how long before one is allowed to convert other than the valid MY driving license and JPJ letter?
