It is calculated based on the age of your car and taxi when you deregister, and the amount of Additional Registration Fee (ARF) you paid. You can tell your car or taxi’s age by looking at the date it was registered locally or overseas, whichever is earlier.

There are 3 ways you can redeem your rebates: 

  • Take them out in cash (encash)

1.    Take your rebates out in cash (encash)

At LTA counter – for users not eligible for SingPass/CorpPass

 

2.    Offset various upfront vehicle taxes and fees


Your PARF/COE rebates can be used to offset the Registration Fee (RF), Additional Registration Fee (ARF), the Quota Premium (QP), Used Car Surcharge and CEVS Surcharge that you have to pay when you register a new car.

The COE rebate can also be used to offset the Prevailing Quota Premium (PQP) that you have to pay to renew your COE. 

Any unused balance will be forfeited.  If your rebate is higher than the amount you are using to offset different fees, e.g. renewal for COE, please encash your rebate, then pay your fees separately. Otherwise, the difference will be forfeited. Please note that if you encash your rebate, you will receive the money in about 2 weeks (by GIRO) or within a month (by cheque).

Alternatively, you can divide your rebate into smaller portions to offset your COE renewal exactly, and not have to forfeit any difference. There is a fee of $16.05 for each new rebate portion generated.

Enquire with your motor agent on how to use your rebates to offset various vehicle taxes and fees.
