u can but u need to apply .....

u'll need to go to JPJ (LTA equivalent for M'sia ) fill up a stack of forms and bring along ur own company registration plus your malaysian company registration too .
fees : rm$100

on top of all this your driver need to have a malaysian commercial driving license.

if u check with malaysian high commission they will tell u to go muar police station but MHC din update for long time already

there is alot of red tape involved

Remove the back seats of your car and you have a commercial vehicle!

Let me OT a bit and provide a note of caution.

4WD vehicles are high in demand. They are considered to be just as valuable as luxury vehicles, and perhaps even more so. This is because 4WD vehicles are sturdy and can be sent to the middle of a jungle or an oil palm estate, never to be seen again. When they are there, road tax, insurance etc are not even considered. Once taken, they are rarely (if ever) found.

If you go along NSHW, you can always spot those highway patrol, which are normally yellow in colour. Those are the one that will stop you if you are a singapore registered G plate.
