Road Tax Renewal and Late Payment Fees

All Singapore registered motor cars must have valid road tax (aka vehicle license) at all times. In addition, they must have valid insurance cover when used on the roads.
Please therefore renew your road tax and motor insurance before expiry. You can renew your car insurance here

If the road tax is renewed after its expiry date, a late fee is payable in addition to the road tax. The amount of late fee payable is as follow:

Late Fees Payable

Vehicle Type Engine Capacity Within 1st Month of Expiry Date Between 1 and 2.5 months of Expiry Date More than 2.5 months > 6 months for Motorcycles
> 3 months for Other Vehicles
Cars <= 1,000cc $10 $60 $75 $225
1,001 - 1,600cc $20 $70 $85 $235
1,601 - 2,000cc $30 $80 $95 $245
2,001 - 3,000cc $40 $90 $105 $255
>= 3,001cc $50 $100 $115 $265
Business Service Passenger Vehicles (company cars) N.A. $50 $100 $115 $265
Motorcycle <300cc $10 $30 $45 $125
>=300cc $10 $60 $75 $225
Others $50 $100 $115 $265

For example, if the owner of a car with an engine capacity of less than 1,000 cc renews the road tax at 3.5 months after the road tax expiry date, on top of the road tax payable, he will also have to pay the late fee of $225.

Besides the late fee, the owner of a vehicle is also liable to be prosecuted for the offence of keeping or using the vehicle without a valid road tax under Section 15 of the Road Traffic Act. The offence carries a maximum fine of $2,000 upon conviction in court.

It is also a serious offence for anyone to use or allow the use of a vehicle without a valid motor insurance cover. The penalty for this serious offence is a fine of up to $1,000 or to imprisonment of up to 3 months or to both, and a mandatory disqualification from holding a driving licence for at least 12 months, upon conviction in court.
