Upon arrival to Malaysia, you are allowed to drive around with an international driver’s license for a total period of 90 days. After the 90 days, you will be required to convert your foreign driving license into a Malaysia Driving License.
Foreigners holding driving licenses from countries with signatories to any treaty or agreement with Malaysia may apply for conversion of driving license. The license must be a full license and does not include learning license, temporary license, or probationary license.
To get a valid license, you will need to apply for an international driving license or enroll at a driving school. With effect from 31st December 2020, all foreigners can convert their driving license through the correct procedure on the JPJ website Malaysia.
