I always forget the date when I have to renew my driving licence. Not only me have this problem, my dad too. And maybe you too. So the suggestion to use birthday as the expiry of driving licence by JPJ is a good choice.
Below is the news I extracted from The Star,
“If the holder’s next birthday is less than six months after the expiry date of their licence, the fee for the period will be free of charge,” he told a press conference at Wisma MCA in Kuala Lumpur.
However, he said, if the period between the holder’s next birthday and the expiry date of the licence was more than six months, they would be charged 50% of the renewal fee.
He said licence holders would still be allowed to renew their licences for up to five years if such a system were to be implemented.
PS: Hope they will implement this system soon.
