For someone new to driving in Malaysia, renewing your car’s road tax & insurance can be confusing. With online advice that is scattered, how do you know who to trust?
In this article & video, I will be sharing how I’d renew my Perodua Myvi’s road tax online:
How Much is My Car’s Road Tax?
Your vehicle’s annual road tax in Malaysia is determined by several factors such as:
- Vehicle type: motorcycle, car, or SUV
- Engine type: electric or normal internal combustion engine
- Engine capacity (cc or liters)
- Registration type (private company car)
Below is a table of road tax prices for popular private cars & SUVs in Malaysia:
|Car Example||Type||Engine Capacity (L)||Road Tax (RM)|
|Perodua Axia, Ativa||Car||1.0L||RM 20|
|Perodua Myvi||Car||1.3L||RM 70|
|Honda Civic Turbo||Car||1.5L||RM 90|
|Mazda CX-5||SUV||2.0L||RM 360|
Check out the Ministry of Transportations website to view the entire price list for all cars, motorcycles & electric cars.

The rest of this article will show you how I renew my road tax on the MyEG website:
Renewing Road Tax on MyEG Website
MyEG is a website that bridges the Malaysian government’s services to its citizens.
The website is not user-friendly so I will be guiding you through the step-by-step process:
- Log in to MyEg’s website: https://www.myeg.com.my
- Click on ‘Check & Pay Road Tax‘
- Log in to your MyEg account or create one.
Once you’re on the MyEg website, fill out the car’s legal owner’s details:
- IC number
- Full name
- Vehicle registration number
- Phone number
IMO, it’s a little ridiculous that they would ask so many questions to renew the road tax.
It’s OK if it’s my car, as I’d know my details, but imagine if you want to help renew someone else’s road tax. You’d need all their details.
