Motorcyclist and car occupants contributed about 83% of overall road traffic deaths in this country. Hence, the government of Malaysia is determined to lower down this figure. In 2006, the first Road Safety Plan of Malaysia 2006-2010 had listed three (3) goals to be achieved. The goals are using the common indicator to evaluate or assess the safety performance of each country. One of the indicators is road deaths per billion vehicle kilometre travelled. Thus, there is a need to ensure the vehicle kilometre travelled value is accurate, reliable and represents Malaysia. This study aims to validate the Vehicle Kilometre Travelled (VKT) value for private vehicles. Questionnaire survey using a face-to-face interview or self-completion survey has been chosen as the method of data collection. This study used convenient sampling as a method of data sampling. This study involves only private vehicles (Motorcycle, car, MPV, SUV and van) users. This study also covers Peninsular Malaysia only. The findings of this study show that there are differences in travelled distance for a motorcycle and car. The Average Annual Kilometre Travelled (AAKT) for motorcycle is 21,495 kilometres while for car is 28,184 kilometres. As regards to demographic groups, different groups travel differently. On the validation part, the results show that both methods (survey and secondary data) indicate that the Relative Standard Error (RSE) value is less than 25% which
means that the data is considered reliable to use.
