KUALA TERENGGANU (May 16): The Road Transport Department (JPJ) aims to collect more than RM5 billion in revenue by year end.

Its director general Datuk Zailani Hashim said this is based on several programmes and digitalisation initiatives launched by the department recently.

He said the largest collection of JPJ each year is contributed by road tax and driving licence renewal at more than 60%.

“Last year, we collected RM4.92 billion. This year, we are confident of being able to collect more than RM5 billion taking into account the digitalisation initiatives and programmes launched by JPJ for the community.

“JPJ's collection is one of the highest in the country after the Royal Malaysian Customs Department and the Inland Revenue Board. If we go by last year's statistics, we managed to collect an average of RM11 million a day,” he said after officiating at the Terengganu JPJ Aidilfitri celebration and kiosks here. It was also attended by state JPJ director Zulkarnain Yasin.

Zailani said that thus far, there are 201 JPJ kiosks nationwide, and up to now, RM120.7 million in revenue had been successfully collected through the service.

In another development, Zailani said that up to May 12, a total of 9,564 motorists had renewed their driving licence for the maximum period of 10 years.

He said that the implementation of the initiative, launched by Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook, is well received by the public.

“Apart from being able to renew the driving licence for a period of 10 years, motorists can also save expenses, as they get a 10% discount,” he said.
