Paying Road Tax via GIRO – the advantages

For drivers who are paying road tax through GIRO, or considering  to make that switch, you'll be pleased to know that it will save you time and gives you convenience, because:

One month before the GIRO deduction date, LTA will send a GIRO Payment Schedule to inform you on the GIRO deduction date and the deadline that all pre-requisite(s) must be met (e.g. car insurance and/or vehicle inspection). But remember to maintain sufficient funds in the bank account for the GIRO deduction to avoid any charges that may be imposed by the bank or by LTA for each failed deduction. Should an unsuccessful deduction occur, you'll receive a notice to renew the road tax by other channels (i.e Payment at SingPost, AXS or online).

Please note that the Applicant (policyholder/car owner) and Account Holder (GIRO)  need not be the same person.

The Applicant ID can be Singapore NRIC for Singaporean/Permanent Resident; Malaysian NRIC for Malaysian; Foreign Passport for Foreigner other than Malaysian; ACRA Registration Number for Company / Business; Unique Entity Number for Statutory / Professional Body / Club / Society / Ministry.

The deduction will be reflected as “LTA” in the passbook/bank statement.

Upon approval, this GIRO arrangement will continue to be in effect until the Applicant writes in to notify LTA to terminate it. To terminate, the Applicant has to write to:
VRL Service Operations Division (Road Tax)
Land Transport Authority
10 Sin Ming Drive
Singapore 575701
