The Autopass Card* is a customised stored-value card issued to foreign-registered vehicles. It serves as an electronic vehicle entry permit and is thus non-transferable. If you buy a new vehicle, you will need to submit the old Autopass Card for refund and purchase another card for the new vehicle. It can be used to pay for:
- Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) fees
- Toll charges
- Reciprocal Road Charge
- Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) fees on priced roads
- Car park fees in car parks that accept the card
If your family owns more than one vehicle, you will need to purchase an Autopass Card for each vehicle. Please note that it is an offence to use another vehicle's Autopass Card to drive into Singapore.
