I have been wanting to write about this piece for quite some time now but alas, being a busy full time student who’s currently inundated with tons and tons of writing up to do, I guess time got the better of me.
But wait, there’s no such thing as a perfect thesis or dissertation right?
So, I guess, it will do me no harm if I take some time off from it once in a while…
For as long as I can remember, when it comes to renewing my car insurance and road tax, I’ve always let the bank to do all the dirty works for me. As always, without failed, each year I would received a letter from them reminding me that it’s that time of the year again. The letter would list down all the particulars and the total amount that I have to fork out.
I would then later contacted the bank over the phone and the person in charged would text me the account no to bank in the amount.
Once I’ve transferred the money, voila! Done and done.
All I have to do then was to wait for a couple of days before heading to the nearest branch to collect the cover note and road tax.
For some reason, they don’t do house delivery. Not sure why.
It’s July now and yes. it’s time for me to renew my car insurance and road tax.
Macam cantik jer kan? Time nak raya ni la dia nak mati road tax, hahaha…
For this year, I decided to take matter into my own hands.
Step up and be a man.
Well, kind of.
The thing is I just found out about Motor Takaful from one of the forums I frequently visit. Based on the positive reviews from the community, I said to my self, why not. Just go for it. And oh yeah, on top of the annual NCD, I can get an extra 10% rebate/discount by getting my car insurance done via Motor Takaful.
What? 10% discount?
Yes, believe me.
Awat la tak tau sebelum ni lagi. Hahaha…
So, just head over to MotorTakaful.com. Btw, you must renew your car insurance first before getting your road tax – hence Motor Takaful for car insurance. For car road tax, that can be done via MyEG.
To proceed, please make sure you have all these documents next to you to expedite the process:
- Copy of Motor Cover Policy from previous Insurance/Takaful Institution or
- Copy of Cover Note from previous Insurance/Takaful Institution or
- Copy of Vehicle registration card
No site registration is needed. The whole thingy involved a 5-step process:
- Check NCD
It took me around 20 mins or so to complete the whole process till a receipt is displayed for me to print out.
Another great thing is, since Motor Takaful is interlinked with MyEG, once you’re with your car insurance, you can straight away visit the latter to get your road tax renewed. Easy ehh?
And the best thing of all, my road tax was safely delivered to my doorstep on the very next day.
