Land Transport Authority (LTA) has reminded the public that it will stop issuing physical road tax discs from 15 February 2017 as part of its efforts to streamline processes as announced in August last year, stating that motorists will also no longer be required to display road tax discs on the windscreens of their vehicles.
Starting from 15 February 2017, LTA said that motorists will only receive a road tax payment notice and no paper road tax disc will be issued.
LTA reminds motorists to pay their road tax on time, noting that using a vehicle with road tax in arrears is an offence and liable to a maximum fine of $2,000.
LTA then said that motorists can continue to check and obtain a printout of their vehicle’s road tax validity via the One.Motoring website under the road tax enquiry feature. They can also log into their One.Motoring account to opt to receive email reminders to renew their road tax.
LTA said that authorities in Malaysia have been informed that physical road tax discs will no longer be issued from 15 February 2017 and Singapore-registered vehicles will not be required to display the road tax disc on the windscreens of their vehicles.
LTA stated tha motorists will be able to verify a vehicle’s road tax validity via the same online function on the One.Motoring website. Nevertheless, those driving into Malaysia are advised to carry a printout of their vehicle’s road tax validity in their vehicles.
“Motorists should also ensure that a valid motor insurance certificate is kept in their vehicles at all times,” it added.
