News Releases
9 Feb 2017
  1. As announced in August last year, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will stop issuing physical road tax discs from 15 February 2017 as part of its efforts to streamline processes. Motorists will also no longer be required to display road tax discs on the windscreens of their vehicles.
  2. Starting from 15 February 2017, motorists will only receive a road tax payment notice, and no paper road tax disc will be issued.
  3. Motorists are reminded to pay their road tax on time. Using a vehicle with road tax in arrears is an offence and liable to a maximum fine of $2,000. Motorists can continue to check and obtain a printout of their vehicle’s road tax validity via the One.Motoring website under the road tax enquiry feature. They can also log into their One.Motoring account to opt to receive email reminders to renew their road tax. Please refer to the Annex for more details.
  4. Authorities in Malaysia have been informed that physical road tax discs will no longer be issued from 15 February 2017 and Singapore-registered vehicles will not be required to display the road tax disc on the windscreens of their vehicles. They will be able to verify a vehicle’s road tax validity via the same online function on the One.Motoring website. Nevertheless, those driving into Malaysia are advised to carry a printout of their vehicle’s road tax validity in their vehicles. Motorists should also ensure that a valid motor insurance certificate is kept in their vehicles at all times.
