How to de-register and dispose of a vehicle
 

A vehicle owner is responsible for the de-registration and proper disposal of his de-registered vehicle.

The de-registered vehicle must either be scrapped at an LTA Appointed Scrapyard, temporarily stored at an LTA Appointed Export Processing Zone pending export, or exported out of Singapore. Proof of disposal of the de-registered vehicle must be submitted to the LTA.

You may engage the services of a motor dealer to handle the de-registration and/or disposal of your vehicle. You are advised to approach a motor dealer who is CaseTrust-SVTA accredited for greater assurance.

If you want to de-register and dispose the vehicle yourself, you may choose to de-register your vehicle at:


i)
LTA Appointed Scrapyards (click here for procedure) - Send the vehicle to an LTA Appointed Scrapyard for scrap. The vehicle will be de-registered upon acceptance by the appointed scrapyard; or

ii) LTA Appointed Export Processing Zones (EPZ) (click here for procedure) - Send the vehicle to an LTA Appointed EPZ for temporary storage pending export. The vehicle will be de-registered upon acceptance by the EPZ; or

iii) LTA Counter - For Vehicles Exported Out of Singapore (click here for procedure) - Submit valid export documents to de-register the vehicle at LTA; or

iv) LTA Counter (for cars that are eligible for PARF rebates) (click here for procedure) - For cars that are eligible for PARF rebates, you can de-register the car at LTA first, and dispose of the de-registered car and submit proof of its disposal to the LTA within 1 month from the de-registration date

If you wish to retain your vehicle registration number, please remember to do it before or at the time of de-registration at the LTA Appointed EPZ or LTA.

Failing to submit disposal documents of a de-registered vehicle

Offenders who fail to submit disposal documents as proof that the vehicle has been scrapped, exported, or sent to EPZ for storage, within a month from its de-registration may be prosecuted in Court, and face a maximum Court fine of $2,000 or 3 months' imprisonment. Similarly, first time offenders who are found keeping a de-registered vehicle may be prosecuted in Court, and face a maximum Court fine of $2,000 or 3 months' imprisonment.


Driving/using/allowing usage of a de-registered vehicle


It is an offence to drive, use or keep a de-registered vehicle. A de-registered vehicle must be towed or transported if it needs to be transferred from one location to another. Infringing offenders will be prosecuted in Court, and face a maximum Court fine of $2,000 or 3 months' imprisonment.

A de-registered vehicle is also likely to be uninsured. It is a serious offence for anyone to use or permit the use of a vehicle without a valid motor insurance cover. The penalty is a fine of up to $2,000 or imprisonment of up to 3 months or both, and a mandatory disqualification from holding a driving licence for at least 12 months, upon conviction in court.
