The Road Transport Department (JPJ) has introduced the Vehicle Ownership Certificate (VOC) 'pink slip' to replace the old Vehicle Registration Cards (RC).

The move to change to the new pink slips will be carried in stages, beginning 1 June, 2016.

The JPJ said that with the implementation of the VOC, it will clear the path to broaden the department's online services, making future transactions easier and faster for the public.

The VOC still contains the details of the owner and their vehicle, but will no longer be used as a document in transactions such as road tax renewal or ownership transfer.

Starting today, vehicle owners will be able to renew their VOC online, instantly allowing them to avoid the long queues at JPJ counters.

JPJ said the move will be carried out in stages as the table below:

The transfer of vehicle ownership can now be done online, beginning today, said Road Transport Department (JPJ).

The VOC does not contain transaction records as in the previous Registration Card (RC), and all vehicle owners must replace their RC to VOC by Jan 1, 2020.
