Converting a normal car or motorcycle to a classic vehicle


To be eligible for classic vehicle conversion, your normal car, motorcycle or scooter must be at least 35 years old from its Original Registration Date (ORD).

If your vehicle has a 5-year COE period, you can convert it to a classic vehicle only if:

  • The vehicle is more than 30 years old at the start of the 5-year COE period.
    You must convert it to a classic vehicle when it reaches 35 years old, before the COE expires. Otherwise, you must deregister the vehicle as you cannot renew a 5-year COE.
  • You pay a levy for a vehicle that is more than 35 years old at the start of the 5-year COE period.  
    The levy is based on an annual interest rate of 5% applied on the difference between the Prevailing Quota Premium of the 10-year COE and the 5-year COE, taken from the month the 5-year COE of the vehicle was renewed.
