How To: Convert Foreign Driving License to Malaysian Driving License

Hi guys! We recently converted Hubby's foreign (British) driving license to a Malaysian driving license, so here is a rundown of the whole process. Hopefully this will be of help to you too! 

Before your first visit to JPJ

a. Firstly, call JPJ Wangsa Maju (03-4145 0800) and enquire about the documents required to convert your foreign driving license to a Malaysian driving license. The information below is based on an application to convert a British driving license (applicant has a Malaysian spouse visa).

b. Here are the documents you need to bring:

1. Original passport + photocopy of all printed pages

2. Passport photo on a white background

3. Your foreign driving license + a photocopy of both front and back of the driving license

4. Letter from embassy certifying that your driving license is from that country. (Note: for British driving license, you will need to call the DVLA in UK to get a Certificate of Entitlement (D737), which they can send to your Malaysian home address. It will take about 6 weeks to arrive from UK. Please ensure that you bring both the original Certificate of Entitlement and the form D889 attached to the certificate) 

5. Visa / photocopy of valid visa blown up to A4 size. (Note: please ensure that your visa has at least 6 months validity)

6. Malaysian Marriage Certificate (since we are applying based on a Social Visit Pass, we need to provide both the local and foreign marriage certificate. Bring both original and photocopies.

7. Original NRIC for spouse + photocopy.

Visiting JPJ office (Visit #1)

a. Once you have all the above documents, visit the JPJ Wangsa Maju office in the morning. There is plenty on-site parking there. Head over to Pintu 1, let the guard know you are applying for conversion of driving license, then queue at Counter 4 for a number. Make sure you have all the above documents ready as they will check before issuing a number.

b. Once your number is called, you will need to speak to another officer, who is in charge of double checking your documents and giving you an appointment date. You must return to JPJ on your appointment date with all the above documents as well as a completed application form (which they will give to you when you are queuing for a number; Form JPJ L1, and Lampiran B-2). We got an appointment date which was 7 weeks away. 

On your appointment date (Visit #2)

a. We arrived with all the above documents and queued for a number at Pintu 1 Counter 4 at JPJ Wangsa Maju. 

b. Lo and behold, when it was our turn, we were asked for another document which wasn't on the list. Fortunately, hubby had a pdf copy of it on his phone. If you're applying for a conversion based on your spouse visa, then please bring along your passport that is stated on your Malaysian marriage certificate. 

c. Once you have submitted the documents, you will be asked to return in the afternoon (after 2pm) to receive an "application slip". You will be advised to check the application online after 30 days to see if it has been approved at this link.

Checking the application status (the waiting game)

a. Click this link, then select "Bukan Warganegara Malaysia". Key in your ID and submit.

b. I actually checked the status everyday and it showed "in process". However, to my surprise, it was approved in less than a month (ours was approved in 3 weeks 4 days.. woohoo!). Once approved, it will show an approve date and expiry date. You will also receive an email notification. The expiry date is the date you have to visit the JPJ office by to complete the process of conversion and collect your Malaysian driving license.

Collecting your Malaysian driving license (Visit #3)

a. Visit JPJ Wangsa Maju office along with your:

1. application slip 

2. original passport

3. passport photo on white background

4. Payment of RM140 (can pay via cash or credit card)

b. Queue for a number at Pintu 1 Counter 4, and wait to be called. Once called, it's a simple 2 minute process of handing over the documents and payment. You will be given a payment slip, which you can have to hand over at the printing counter. You will receive your physical Malaysian driving license within 5 minutes. 

c. You will get a Probationary Driving License which is valid for 2 years. You will need to display the P sticker on your car during this period on the top left hand corner of your car. After 2 years, you will need to return to JPJ Wangsa Maju to change it to a Competent Driving License (CDL).


1. The conversion of a foreign driving license can only be carried out at JPJ Wangsa Maju.
2. There are photocopiers at the site if you need to photocopy any documents.

Shopee Commits Up to RM50 Million for Malaysian Students

Shopee Commits Up to RM50 Million for Malaysian Students
Strategic Partnership with Sasbadi Benefits 2.5 Million Students Nationwide

Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia & Taiwan, has officially partnered with Sasbadi, Malaysia’s leading publication house and education solutions provider, to empower students in achieving their educational goals. The partnership was launched to make high-quality learning and revision materials more accessible to the Malaysian student community, giving them access to the right tools to succeed in their studies.

Commencing on 1 July 2023, Shopee commits RM 50 million to help students purchase educational materials to assist them in achieving academic excellence. This is carried out via RM20 cash equivalent vouchers with no minimum spend that can be redeemed on any educational materials available at Sasbadi’s Official Shopee Store, exclusively for new Shopee customers. Throughout the year, these vouchers will be printed in selected Sasbadi publications and distributed through Shopee and bookstores across the country.

“For those in need of high-quality learning materials, you are not alone – Sasbadi is committed to helping you achieve your full potential. We trust Shopee to make available this much-needed support to students across Malaysia, particularly underserved communities who need it the most, and we will continue to explore all avenues for raising awareness about such efforts,” said Law King Hui, Group Managing Director and Co-Founder of Sasbadi.

“We are humbled to partner with like-minded companies like Sasbadi to support the rising educational needs of rural, underprivileged and underserved students from diverse backgrounds across Malaysia. This is part of our commitment to support local communities using technology. I strongly believe in the importance of education and together with my team, I am glad to be able to pay forward the support I received during my student days. We hope that Shopee's support will enable these students to achieve their dreams,” said Kenneth Soh, Head of Marketing at Shopee Malaysia.

Shopee took a similar step in May 2022 when it collectively raised nearly RM 300,000 for *#ShopeeGivesBack partners like UNICEF Malaysia in meeting critical needs of marginalised children and their families in Covid-19.

During the year-long campaign, Shopee’s platform will serve easy-access offerings tailored to students’ needs based on data-driven insights. Specifically, students’ searches for educational needs, such as practical notebooks or school supplies, educational textbooks, educational aid devices, and extra-curricular supplies. Concurrently, Sasbadi’s publications, available on Shopee and in bookshops nationwide, will incorporate the RM20 vouchers, allowing students to conveniently redeem them for educational materials at Sasbadi’s Official Shopee Store on the platform.

Jiu Gong Noodle House, Setapak ่ˆ…ๅ…ฌ่ ่œ้ข้ฆ†

A few weeks ago, we were in Wangsa Maju to sort out some chores and come lunchtime, we decided to try out this restaurant, Jiu Gong Noodle House ่ˆ…ๅ…ฌ่ ่œ้ข้ฆ† , which was highly rated on Google. They are famous for their spinach handmade noodles.

 The restaurant is air-conditioned and clean. The menu is simple - one page for noodles, and the other for snacks and drinks. Their handmade noodles are paired with minced pork and shredded chicken, as well as other ingredients such as wantan, bitter gourd and pork ball. They also have Thai kway chap noodle soup here.

I highly recommend the spinach noodle with minced pork, shredded chicken and wantan (RM9.50). The noodles had a really nice texture, and was well seasoned. I thoroughy enjoyed this. Hubby had the egg noodle, which has a similar texture, just without the spinach. For drinks, I had the Thai green tea (RM4), a good thirst quencher for this hot weather!
