Last Minute Road Tax Renewal: What to Do?

Your Road Tax is due for renewal. You make calls to renew your car insurance so as to avoid the late Road Tax fine by LTA.

Does this situation sound familiar to you?

First, let’s revisit the prerequisites for Road Tax renewal.

  1. Vehicle inspection: Your vehicle will first need to pass an inspection.  You will receive an inspection notice when it is due. For passenger cars, this occurs on the 3rd year of registration, and every 2 years thereafter.
  2. Motor insurance: Your vehicle will need to have valid insurance for the full period of the new road tax.

Say you’ve inspected your vehicle and contacted your insurer to renew your insurance. However, you are still being notified that you have insufficient insurance coverage. What went wrong?

Depending on insurance companies, it can take up to 3 working days to transmit your new insurance information to LTA.
