You must have a valid Autopass card and LTA's approval email before driving into Singapore.

When driving in Singapore


Electronic Road Pricing (ERP)

When driving in Singapore, you may encounter ERP gantries that are used to control road congestion. You will incur an ERP charge when you drive through the gantries during operational hours.

ERP payment for Malaysia-registered cars

Malaysia-registered cars can pay a fixed rate of $5 daily to use ERP-priced roads during ERP operating hours, regardless of the number of times the vehicle passes through ERP gantries within the same day.

The fixed ERP fee will be deducted through your Autopass Card when you exit Singapore.

You can also choose to rent a temporary In-vehicle Unit (IU) at Tuas or Woodlands Checkpoint to pay your ERP charges, or permanently install an IU in your car by visiting any authorised IU Service Centre.  The IU rental costs $5.15 a day for a minimum rental duration of 2 days, for up to 2 weeks. You will also need to pay a refundable deposit of $124.65. To use the IU, you will need to insert a stored-value card:

ERP payment for Malaysia-registered motorcycles

You can also choose to install an IU permanently on your motorcycle by visiting any authorised IU Service Centre.

When exiting Singapore


You can drive out of Singapore via Tuas or Woodlands Checkpoint. Before you leave, ensure that you have sufficient value in your Autopass Card to pay all the fees and charges incurred during your stay in Singapore.

Announcement Shout-out

Avoid fines of up to $1,000 by paying all fees and charges before leaving Singapore and by using the Autopass Card for your vehicle. Do not insert a NETS CashCard or local CEPAS card into the card reader at the immigration booth. 

Remember to top up your Autopass Card in other parts of Singapore in advance, as there are no top-up machines at the checkpoints.

Your Autopass Card can be topped up to a maximum of $500. If you need to make payment of more than $500, you will need to make payment at LTA’s VEP/Toll Offices at Tuas or Woodlands Checkpoints, preferably by NETS for a faster transaction. Cash (in Singapore dollars), credit card, or debit card will be accepted. You can do this as you are driving out of Singapore. Bring your Autopass Card so that we can update the trip records. 

At the immigration booth, insert your Autopass Card into the card reader to pay the fees for your vehicle.
