Make sure your applications are made before the road tax or current lay up status expires. Otherwise, road tax and the applicable late renewal fee(s) are payable immediately after the road tax or current lay up status expires.
Lay up start date will commence the day after LTA's approval date of the lay up application.
A period of 1 year (max) or shorter, as determined by the Registrar, may be granted for a lay up application.
A vehicle can only be laid up for 3 consecutive years. If the vehicle is not re-licensed by the third year, it will be de-registered automatically at the end of the third year. Once a vehicle is de-registered, it will not be allowed to be re-registered or re-licensed. The vehicle owner will have to show documentary evidence of disposal within 1-month of de-registration of the vehicle.
A vehicle cannot be laid up for any period beyond the current COE expiry date. If the COE renewal application is still pending cheque clearance, the vehicle can start its lay up status only after the clearance of the cheque and the COE renewal application is approved.
COE rebate will be granted for the period when the vehicle is laid up on the condition that the vehicle is de-registered on or before the COE expiry date. The COE rebate arising from the lay up period will be forfeited if the COE is renewed.
A vehicle will lose its eligibility for Preferential Additional Registration Fee (PARF) benefit, if any, once the vehicle is placed under lay up status.
A laid up vehicle shall not be used or kept on a public road or a public place.
It is an offence if a laid up vehicle is found not at its reported garage address.
It is also an offence for not seeking approval from the Registrar before relocating a laid up vehicle.
