When you sell or deregister your vehicle 
 

You have to renew your road tax if it expires before you sell or deregister your vehicle. When a vehicle is sold, any road tax that has been paid will follow the vehicle and be transferred to the new owner. You can consider factoring in the unused road tax into the selling price of your vehicle.

How to renew your road tax


You can pay online or via AXS services, GIRO or at Authorised Road Tax Collection Centres.

Before you renew your road tax, meet all your renewal prerequisites at least 3 working days in advance.

You have to renew your road tax before it expires, or you will have to pay late renewal fees and fines. You may also be charged in Court for keeping an unlicensed vehicle. 
 

Renewal prerequisites 

 

Before you can renew your road tax, you have to meet these prerequisites:

  • Vehicle insurance coverage

Make sure your vehicle is covered by insurance for the entire period you are paying road tax. The vehicle insurance must cover third-party liability for deaths and bodily injury. It is a serious offence for a vehicle to be driven without insurance coverage.

  • Vehicle inspection (if one is due)

If your vehicle is due for periodic inspection, you will receive an inspection notice about 3 months before your road tax expires. If you have misplaced your inspection notice, you can still get your vehicle inspected at LTA-Authorised Inspection Centres without it. 

  • Outstanding fines from LTA, HDB, URA and Traffic Police (TP)

If your vehicle has outstanding fines or warrants from LTA, HDB, URA and TP, it may prevent you from renewing your road tax. To renew your road tax smoothly, ensure that your vehicle has no outstanding fines or warrants with these agencies.

  • For Weekend Cars / Off Peak Cars / Revised Off Peak Cars

Inspect your vehicle number plate seals at an LTA-Authorised Inspection Centre.

  • For heavy vehicles

    Heavy vehicles must have a valid Vehicle Parking Certificate (VPC).  Your vehicle is considered a heavy vehicle if it is:

    • A vehicle with a maximum laden weight more than 5,000kg 
    • A bus with seating capacity more than 15 passengers
    • A trailer or a mobile crane
    • A recovery vehicle with unladen weight more than 2,500kg
  • Check if your vehicle meets the prerequisites
