How to check your traffic summons

Have you ever been in this situation – driving too fast, parking in the wrong place or driving up a one-way street in the wrong direction? You have this feeling that you were watched doing this but you are not sure? All this happened a couple of weeks ago but you didn’t get a ticket. You should be so lucky!

However, this bad feeling stays in your tummy. Because of the Malaysian interpretation of time, you might think the expected ticket may just come later.

Here is the solution for this little problem: just register yourself under (choose “Resident of Malaysia” for IC-category) and you will be able to check your summons.

The website is not always working but with some patience you will see under “Polis DiRaya Malaysia” or under “Jabatan Pengangkutan Jln” your summons with all necessary details. What you do with this information is up to you but if you wait for the official letter it normally becomes more expensive. That’s why the authorities in charge expect every driver here in Malaysia to check their summons by themselves.

Checking Summons through SMS

In cooperation with the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) DAPAT has introduced a faster way to check your traffic summons issued by the traffic police. Here is what you do; type an SMS:
IC no: POLIS SAMAN [identification card no] or
Vehicle: POLIS SAMAN [car registration no.]
IC no: POLIS SAMAN 710503005100 or
Vehicle: POLIS SAMAN HW1234
Then send the SMS to DAPAT or to 32728

The reply is in Bahasa, but look out for the key word TIADA which means you do not have any summons. If you do, it will display WHERE, WHEN and AMOUNT. If you think your vehicle may have more than a couple of traffic summons, or you want details sent to your email, then do the following SMS:

1. POLIS SAMAN [identification card no] SEMUA
The number of replies that you receive is based on how many outstanding traffic summons you have incurred.
2. POLIS SAMAN [car registration no.] [your email]
You will get an SMS reply stating the email address given and you will receive an email giving the detailed summary of the outstanding traffic summons.
To subscribe to summons alert by sms type POLIS SAMAN ON.
To unsubscribe summons alert type POLIS SAMAN OFF.
Then send the SMS to DAPAT or to 32728. Source: Azman Armat and
