How to de-register and dispose of a vehicle

A vehicle owner is responsible for the deregistration and proper disposal of his deregistered vehicle.

The deregistered 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 deregistration 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 deregister and dispose the vehicle yourself, you may choose to deregister 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 deregistered upon acceptance by the appointed scrapyard *SEE VIDEO GUIDE ; 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 deregistered upon acceptance by the EPZ; or
