Understanding COE renewal


As your vehicle’s COE expires, you must renew it if you wish to keep your vehicle registered. Otherwise, the vehicle must be deregistered and disposed of.

You must renew your COE before it expires, or within 1 month after its expiry date with payment of a late renewal fee.

How to renew your COE


Pay the Prevailing Quota Premium (PQP) for your vehicle category to renew your COE.  The PQP is the moving average of COE prices in the last 3 months. The PQP varies monthly depending on the COE prices in the bidding exercises conducted in the last 3 months.  

You can renew your COE for a period of 5 or 10 years, depending on the category of your vehicle. 
 

Vehicle categories

Category A

Car up to 1,600cc & 97kW (130bhp)

Category B

Car above 1,600cc or 97kW (130bhp)   

Category C

Goods vehicle and bus

Category D

Motorcycle

Category E

Open – all except motorcycle


If your vehicle was registered using Category E COE, you must renew its COE under the vehicle’s corresponding category A to D. 

E.g. For a bus whose COE was previously bid under Category E, its COE must be renewed under Category C.

If your car was registered or converted using Temporary COEs (TCOEs) obtained before the 1st bidding exercise in February 2014, it will be classified based on its engine capacity as follows:

If its engine capacity is 1,600cc and below, then it falls under Category A. If its engine capacity is 1,601cc and above, then it falls under Category B. 

You can renew your COE online, by post, or at the LTA Customer Service Centre

Renew your COE before it expires to avoid late renewal fees.
 

Renewing COE for 5 years


You need to pay 50% of the PQP to renew your COE for 5 years. Please check your vehicle category below for what you will need to know when renewing your COE for 5 years.

For vehicles from Categories A, B and D

You can renew your COE for 5 years only once. When the 5–year renewal period is over, you cannot renew again and will have to deregister the vehicle. 

For vehicles from Category C

When you renew your vehicle’s COE for 5 years, you can still continue to renew it after the first 5-year renewal period is over. However, the subsequent renewals can only be for 5–year periods. Once your vehicle reaches the end of its statutory lifespan , you can no longer renew its COE, and the vehicle will be deregistered.
 

Renewing COE for 10 years


You must pay the PQP for your vehicle category to renew your COE for 10 years.

For vehicles with no statutory lifespan (i.e. Categories A, B and D), there is no limit to how many times you can renew your COE in 10-year periods.
 

Statutory lifespan of vehicles


Vehicles that have reached the end of their statutory lifespan can no longer renew their COE. Refer to the table below for the lifespan of each vehicle category.

How much PQP you need to pay


PQP is the moving average of COE prices in the last 3 months. It varies monthly, depending on the COE prices of the bidding exercises in the last 3 months. You can find out the PQP for each month once the 2nd bidding exercise in the previous month is over. Check the latest PQP.

To renew your COE, the PQP rate for your renewal depends on the date you choose to renew and your COE expiry date.

For example, if your COE expires on 5 August 2017, you have 2 choices. You can:

1. Renew early before your COE expires

2. Renew in the month your COE expires



PQP rate for late COE renewal

When your COE expires, your vehicle is automatically deregistered and you cannot use it on the roads until you have renewed the COE.

If you renew your COE after its expiry date, you must pay the PQP of the month your COE expires. You will also have to pay a late renewal fee.

If you do not renew your COE within 1 month of the expiry date, you will have to dispose of your vehicle immediately.

For example, if your COE expires on 5 August 2017, you must pay the PQP for August 2017 and late renewal fee if you renew late. If you fail to renew by 4 September 2017, your vehicle will have to be disposed of immediately.

PQP rate for Weekend Car/ Off-Peak Car/ Revised Off-Peak Car (WEC/OPC/ROPC)
