Check PDRM and Other Summons Online
MyEG is short for Malaysian Electronic-Government (“E-Government), and is the MSC’s Flagship Application. MYEG builds, operates and owns the electronic channel to deliver services from various Government agencies such as the PDRM and JPJ to Malaysian citizens and businesses. It offers services such as road tax and insurance renewal, driving license renewal and even MyKad (ID) replacement.
Check Summons on JPJ’s Official Website
You can also check your JPJ and AES summons on JPJ’s website. The JPJ summons are usually records of notices or summons issued against vehicle users or owners who commit traffic offenses. The AES summons refers to offenses detected by automatic detection systems that are installed on the main roads all over Malaysia using cameras (pictures and videos).
Summons that are issued by JPJ are divided into two types – summons that can be compounded and summons that cannot be compounded. A compoundable summon can be paid within the period specified. Whereas a summon that cannot be compounded must be settled in court as specified in the summon slip. JPJ or AES summons can be paid at any JPJ State Office, JPJ Branches near you, or through e-Services.
The installation of AES (Automated Enforcement System) Cameras in the AWAS (Automated Awareness Safety System) is one of the proactive measures introduced by JPJ to reduce the number of accidents and deaths on the road that indirectly involves offenses related to speed limits and red-light violations. AES is an automated method of enforcing traffic rules and laws that operates 24 hours a day regardless of weather conditions in certain locations such as on highways and traffic light intersections.
This list is classified into 2 different categories – speed limit and traffic lights. Currently, there are a total of 45 AES cameras (29 for speed limits and 16 for traffic lights) at various locations all over Malaysia.
Check Summons via RILEK
RILEK which is an abbreviation for “Rangkaian Interactif Laman Electronic Kerajaan” or Government Interactive Network Portal is a website that provides interactive access to different government agencies. This website allows you to check on your PDRM summons inquiries and make payments.
Check Summons via PDRM’s SSO
The ‘Sistem Semakan Online’ (SSO) or the Online Review System is a service provided by PDRM that allows the public to review online services such as reviewing your police report’s status and investigations (if any), the status of unexplained traffic summonses, and the latest recruitment or vacancy positions within PDRM.
Check Via MyBayar Saman Platform, by the PDRM
The MyBayar Saman is an online platform that allows users to pay their traffic summonses online and it can be done on the website or on the mobile application. It is an initiative by the PDRM’s traffic investigation and enforcement department (JSPT) to create a better online payment system that is fast, efficient, and easy.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1.What happens if I fail to pay my summons?
Failure to settle your outstanding summons can result in offenders being blacklisted or/and issued arrest warrants thus resulting in offenders not being allowed to renew their road tax and driving licenses. Offenders will only be removed from the list after clearing all the outstanding summonses.
2. Who should be responsible if a newly purchased used car has an outstanding summon from the old owner?
If you buy a used car and realized that it has an outstanding summon – you only need to show the car purchase documents (copy of the ownership transference form and the new grant) to JPJ. Once it is proven that the summon was issued before the ownership of the used car was transferred, you do not have to pay the summon on behalf of the old owner.
3. Are there any discounts for these summonses?
Typically, these discounts are usually based on the ongoing announcement at that current time. You can follow JPJ’s and PDRM’s official websites or social media sites such as Facebook or Instagram to know when discounts for summonses are given. Last year, from the 18th to the 21st May 2020, PDRM offered discounts up to 50% for selected outstanding traffic summonses when you pay them through MyEG and RILEK.
