At a glance

Understanding the Early Turnover Scheme (ETS)

With the Early Turnover Scheme (ETS), you enjoy discounted Prevailing Quota Premium (PQP) for your Certificate of Entitlement (COE) when you replace your existing vehicle with a more environmentally friendly model.

 

Your existing and replacement vehicles must meet the eligibility criteria to qualify for the ETS.

Replacing your vehicle under the ETS

To replace your vehicle, deregister the existing vehicle, then register your replacement vehicle within a month.

 

When you register your replacement vehicle, you will enjoy a discounted PQP for your COE.

 

Refer to the sample calculations for examples on how to calculate your PQP and COE values.

Understanding the Early Turnover Scheme
 

The Early Turnover Scheme (ETS) encourages you to replace your older diesel goods vehicles and buses with cleaner, more environmentally friendly models. Instead of bidding for a new COE, you will enjoy a discounted Prevailing Quota Premium (PQP) for your replacement vehicle. Any COE rebate from your older vehicle will be transferred to the COE value of your replacement vehicle.

From 1 April 2021, the ETS has been enhanced and extended to include existing Euro IV Category C diesel vehicles. The Enhanced ETS has also replaced the current ETS. 

 

Enhanced Early Turnover Scheme (ETS) (1 April 2021 to 31 March 2023)

 

The Enhanced ETS and Commercial Vehicle Emissions Scheme (CVES) are in effect from 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2023.

You can click here to find out more about CVES. Select your vehicle types (Goods Vehicle or Bus) and scroll down to the sections "Emission Incentive or Surcharge" and "Commercial Vehicle Emissions Scheme (CVES) for Light Goods Vehicles Registered From 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2023".  

Under the Enhanced ETS, existing Euro II, III and IV Category C diesel vehicles are eligible for the ETS incentive. The incentives will be based on the type of the existing vehicle and replacement vehicle registered under the Enhanced ETS.

 

Eligibility criteria and details for Enhanced ETS

 

To enjoy the benefits of the Enhanced ETS, your existing and replacement vehicles must meet the following criteria:

Existing vehicle criteria

Replacement vehicle criteria

 

Replacing your vehicle under the Enhanced ETS

 

Deregister your existing vehicle


If your existing or replacement vehicles are eligible for the Enhanced ETS, you can proceed to deregister your existing vehicle to enjoy the benefits of the scheme. You must then register a replacement vehicle within a month of deregistering your existing vehicle. See an example below:

If your existing vehicle is deregistered on:

15 August 2021

Then your replacement vehicle must be registered by:

14 September 2021

As the scheme ends on 31 March 2023, to be eligible for the Enhanced ETS, the last day to deregister your existing vehicle is 31 March 2023 and its replacement vehicle must be registered by 30 April 2023.

Under the Enhanced ETS, you will enjoy a discounted PQP for your COE when you register your replacement vehicle.

The discounted PQP that you enjoy depends on:

  • The unused COE period of the existing vehicle when it is deregistered
  • The remaining 20-year lifespan of the existing vehicle when it is deregistered.

Your discounted PQP is calculated as follows:

PQP
 

* The discounted PQP you pay must be at least 10% of the PQP in the month you are registering the replacement vehicle.

[2] The same incentive applies if replacement vehicle is an HGV

[3] The same incentive applies if replacement vehicle is a Band A or B LGV under the CVES

[4] If the replacement vehicle is classified as Band C under CVES, it is not eligible to be registered under the Enhanced ETS

 

When calculating the discounted PQP, the sum of the unused COE period and the proportion of the remaining 20-year statutory lifespan is capped at 10 years. Any excess bonus COE period from the existing vehicle will be forfeited.

If you have already used, encashed or transferred the COE rebate from the deregistered vehicle before registering your replacement vehicle, you will need to return the rebate amount to LTA when you register your replacement vehicle for the Enhanced ETS.


Calculating the 10-year COE value of your replacement vehicle

Once you have registered your replacement vehicle, the value of its 10-year COE will be calculated as follows:
