Converting Foreign Driving Licenses to Malaysian Driving License

There are quite a few requirements to convert a foreign driving licence to a local one. While we have listed down the requirements, it may be a better idea to just go through the Malaysian process above. We strongly advise people in this category to also double check with the JPJ or your embassy for confirmation on the details and the documents required. There will be a processing fee of RM20 and you will be required to pay the regular yearly fee (as stated above in the CDL and PDL descriptions), depending on the license class and number of years.

For non-Malaysian citizens, you must have a Long Term Social Visit Pass, are on the MM2H programme, or are married to a Malaysian citizen. People on work permits and dependent passes are viewed as temporary residents and cannot convert their driving license.

Have a valid driver’s license from your home country that is equivalent to a Malaysian CDL or PDL. If your current valid driver’s license is not printed in English, you will need to present a verified translation of your driving license from the embassy of the issuing country or from the issuing authority in charge of the relevant license information.

Conversion is only for class B2 (motorcycle) and class D (car).

If your driver’s license abroad is valid for less than 2 years, you will only qualify for a PDL license; a person who has a valid license for more than 2 years will qualify for a CDL license.

License holders must present themselves at the JPJ offices to convert their licenses.
