End of the road for tax discs from Feb 2017
EVEN your car will go paperless soon.
The Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced that road tax discs will be phased out from Feb 15 next year.
This means road tax discs will soon disappear from the windscreens of vehicles here.
The LTA said it will stop issuing physical road tax discs as part of its efforts to streamline its processes.
Between now and Feb 14, 2017, motorists will continue to receive their paper road tax disc when they renew their road tax.
But starting from Feb 15, 2017, motorists will only receive a road tax payment notice, and no paper road tax disc will be issued.
The LTA added that motorists should still keep their original motor insurance certificate in their vehicles, while those driving to Malaysia also ought to carry printed proof of their road tax validity.
The authority also reminded motorists that they are still required to ensure they have paid the requisite road tax for the year. Using a vehicle without valid road tax is an offence and liable to a maximum fine of S$2,000.
Motorists can continue to check the validity of their road tax at the One.Motoring website at www.onemotoring.com.sg and print proof of it.
They can also log into their One.Motoring account to opt to receive email reminders to renew their road tax.
In addition, from Sept 1, 2016, motorists can also pay road tax at AXS m-Stations (mobile) and e-Stations (internet), in addition to existing electronic payment channels such as AXS Stations, the One.Motoring portal and Giro.
The LTA said these new payment channels will improve convenience for motorists.
