How do I renew my road tax?

  1. At any Road Tax Collection Centres
    Please bring along a copy of the Certificate of Insurance which you would have received from us by email and post (only if you have opted out of going paperless) and check with the respective centres on their road tax collection hours and payment modes before proceeding to renew your road tax at any of these centres.
  2. Via AXS machines / LTA One Motoring website
    Please purchase your car insurance at least 3 working days before your road tax is due. This allows time for LTA’s system to update before you renew your road tax electronically. If your road tax is already due, we recommend you renew your road tax at the Road Tax Collection Centres.

When is the best time to renew my car insurance?

To avoid road tax late payment penalty (as your car insurance should be purchased at least 3 working days before your road tax due date), your insurance renewal instruction and full payment of premium should reach us at least 14 days prior to the expiry of your current policy. We will take it that you are not renewing your policy if we do not receive the full premium payment by the expiry date of your current policy and your policy will lapse after its last day of cover.

If I am on the automatic renewal arrangement what do I need to do to renew?

You do not have to do anything and we will deduct/charge the renewal premium from your credit card 14 days before the expiry of your current policy (“Deduction Date”).

Can I cancel my policy after purchase?

Yes, you can cancel your policy by giving us at least 7 days' written notice. If you cancel before or on the policy start date, we will charge a premium of S$50.00 (before any applicable GST). If you cancel after the policy start date, you will receive a premium refund of 80% of the unused premium if no claims have been made or incidents reported on your policy. In such case, any refund of the pro-rated unused premium will be computed as follows:
