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. Road tax for these vehicles can only be renewed on a 12-monthly basis.
