The bid deposit for COEs in Categories A, B, C and E is reduced by 50% from $10,000 to $5,000 per bid application for COE bidding exercises conducted from October 2009 to September 2010.
As the bid deposit of $200 for Category D is much lower compared to other COE Categories, there is no change to the bid deposit for Category D. All other terms and conditions for bidding of a COE remain unchanged.
During the bidding exercise, bidders can check on the status of their bids and revise their reserve price using these banks' services, the LTA Open Bidding website (https://ocoe.lta.gov.sg), or by calling the LTA Open Bidding Phone System at telephone number: 6362 1465.
Members of the public can check the current COE price on the One.motoring website (http://www.onemotoring.com.sg) or on Teletext (Channel News Asia pages 521-523).
Although the COE Open Bidding System has been designed to handle large numbers of bids, transmission of bid data through the system could be delayed by external factors. Hence, members of the public are advised to bid early, as the system will only process bid submissions or reserve price revisions that reach the processing system before the closing time at 4.00 pm on 7 April 2010. Bid data that is sent to the processing system at the last minute, but fails to reach the system before the closing time will not be processed.
