PERMANENT DECAL TO BE DISPLAYED BY PRIVATE-HIRE CARS FROM JULY 1

From 1st July, private-hire drivers have to display a new permanent 14cm by 10cm decal on their front and rear windscreens

 

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has revealed images of a decal which private-hire drivers have to display on their car's windscreens from July 1.
 

The 14cm by 10cm plastic display - about twice the area of a road tax disc - must be pasted on the front and rear windscreen. The decal is tamper-evident, which means enforcement officers will be able to tell if it is removed and re-pasted.
 

The LTA said the measure is "to allow for easier identification of registered private-hire cars, and facilitate enforcement against offences such as unregistered cars providing chauffeured services, or private hire cars picking up passengers by street-hail".
 

Owners of private-hire cars registered with the LTA on or before Feb 28, 2017, will have their first pair of tamper-evident decals affixed at no cost.
 

Owners who registered their vehicles after Feb 28 will have to get the decals affixed at $20 (including GST).
 

They can only obtain and get their decals affixed at the following locations from next Monday (April 17):

- Vicom/JIC inspection centres

- STA inspection centres

- Uber and Grab affixing centres
 

Failure to affix these decals will be an offence under the Road Traffic Act. More details on the penalties will be made known at a later date.
 

Letters have been mailed to all registered private-hire car owners to inform them of the requirement.
 

The tamper-evident decals will be inspected when private-hire cars undergo regular vehicle inspections. If a decal has been tampered with, the vehicle owner will not be allowed to renew road tax for the vehicle.
