Driving to Malaysia is easy and simple if you plan it properly.
Singapore and Malasia are linked through two checkpoints: Woodlands (causeway) and Tuas (2nd link, bridge). You can drive from Singapore to Malaysia (and return) using either of the checkpoints. It is not necessary to exit and return from the same checkpoint.
Although the relationship between Singapore and Malaysia governments may be strained from time to time due to water supply, territory, or airspace issues, the exchange of local people on both sides has never been stopped. There are direct bus (and coach) services between Singapore and many Malaysia cities.
In addition to family links, the lower price and diversified natural resources in Malaysia also attract many Singaporeans to drive north to enjoy the life. Of course, there are many Malaysians work in Singapore.
However many new drivers may feel uneasy or unsure of driving to Malaysia due to rumors or changing regulations, for example, the new Malaysia Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP).
Driving to Malaysia guides will give you detailed explanations on what the regulations are when crossing the border, what you should do and can do when driving to Malaysia, and what you should NOT do when driving to Malaysia.

Currently, some of us do have an existing touch n go card to enter and pay Malaysia Custom and Toll but there are no link or any website for us to update and linked our existing touch and go card to Malaysia VEP or even to register the card using our ID.
Do u have the Malaysia official website for us on the matters. TQ
You can only link Touch ‘n Go eWallet to VEP, NOT any Touch ‘n Go cards.
You cannot use any Touch ‘n Go cards in the eWallet. You can only check the transaction history of the cards if you add them into the eWallet app.
For Singapore cars, the balance in the eWallet can only be used to pay the $20 road charge, not tolls.
Anyway, you can’t combine the T ‘n G cards with the eWallet .
