I shared about the conversion of Malaysia driving license to Singapore driving license experience previously. Many of you asked me if we can still drive Malaysia car after we convert to Singapore driving license. So the answer is YES but only 90 days per year.
HOW DO THEY TRACE THE NUMBERS OF TIME YOU DRIVE IN MALAYSIA?
Understand from runner’s source of information, it is based on the days you stay in Malaysia. Yup, this is quite unfair to those who went back Malaysia and did not drive. But this is how it works.
WHAT TO I NEED TO DO TO RETAIN BOTH DRIVING LICENSE?
We can only have one(1) valid driving license and once you convert it using BTT, you can only hold on to Singapore driving license. Your Malaysia driving license will be blacklisted(senarai hitam) once your current driving license expired.
You can refer to the form shown on the post for your reference. This is a sample form shared by the runner for your better understanding.
However, if you want to retain your Malaysia driving license, you need to take fresh course ( theory and practical) at Singapore Driving School.
HOW DO I CONVERT BACK TO MALAYSIA DRIVING LICENSE?
You need to lift up the blacklist in JPJ record. In order for you to do so, you need to obtain a letter from Singapore Traffic Police Department to show as proof to JPJ office. Then, you need to surrender your Singapore Driving License to JPJ because Singapore Driving License is a lifetime ( no need renewal). You need to trade it in for your Malaysia Driving license.
You also need to produce a letter to state that you are no longer Singapore Permanent Resident if you are holding the status in Singapore. If you are Work Permit holder, you need to show them the letter that your pass has been cancelled.
Hope this helps to clarify those who are searching for information. If you have further information to update, please share so I can update the space to share with everyone.
