A Transaction PIN (TPIN) is a password you need from LTA to sell, deregister, transfer your vehicle, or make changes to your vehicle’s PARF or COE rebates.

Please note that from 26 Nov 2018, Transaction PINs (TPINs) will no longer be valid for use. Vehicle owners may login to using their SingPass 2FA or CorpPass 2FA to perform vehicle-related transactions. Existing TPINs must be used by the end of 25 Nov 2018, after which they will be invalidated.

Understanding TPIN

A TPIN is a one-time password you request from LTA.  It allows you to carry out transactions for your vehicle online, or through an Electronic Service Agent (ESA).

An ESA is a motor-vehicle dealer, a scrapyard, an export-processing zone operator, or a road-tax collection centre that you authorise to submit transactions on your behalf to LTA.

Each TPIN can only be used to carry out 1 transaction.

The following transactions need a TPIN to be carried out:

  • Transfer a Temporary Certificate of Entitlement (TCOE) from a transferable COE Category, i.e. Category C or E, that was bid for by an individual
  • Transfer vehicle ownership
  • Transfer a PARF or COE rebate
  • Split a PARF or COE rebate into smaller amounts
  • Deregister a vehicle

Announcement Shout-out

To make it more convenient for motorists, LTA is progressively replacing TPIN with SingPass and CorpPass 2FA.

Using a TPIN

A TPIN is a one-time alphanumeric password for a single transaction.

  • To make multiple transactions for different vehicles, apply for a separate TPIN for each vehicle.
  • To make multiple transactions on a single vehicle, complete one transaction at a time, with a different TPIN each time. Apply for a new TPIN after you complete each transaction.

If you are using the TPIN for digital services, simply enter the TPIN when the system prompts you for it.

If you are using the TPIN at an Electronic Service Agent (ESA), give the TPIN to the ESA or enter the TPIN yourself only when you are ready to make the transaction.

Do not disclose your TPIN to anyone other than the ESA at the time of transaction. It must be kept safe until you intend to use it.
