Do you know that I can't take it without a long stay visa? As I've read that you can do it even without a long term visa. Thanks

I would be interested to learn if you were able to get a MY license?
My husband's license expires within a few month. Since we live outside Britain he cannot renew his license. We have started to visit Malaysia frequently for 90 day stays at a time.

I have not done it yet. I'll check with some locals driving schools when I'm there in February. But in my case (and maybe yours) it might be easier to move back to home country and renew license there..

Tks for replying so quickly. "Going home" would mean for min. 6 months. Plus we no longer have a home in U.K.
We will be in Melaka for a brief visit next month. Will try to get some info.

I'm currently looking into that option. I think, at least in Norway I could tell them I move back, I don't actually have to go there. Then I can order online a replacement license, and then move back out. In theory..
However tax issues might complicate this so I'm not so keen on doing it this way, it's more a last resort
