Hi all,

I just wondering if we can register a passenger van ( Merc Vito or the Renault) as a S-plate vehicle to ferry 10 of our family in comfort.. priority is towards safety for the family and comfort..

I asked C&C and they have the Vianos (8 seater), but too ex ($195K), but the salesman say can register the diesel version as S-plate and no need pay diesel levy ($6-9k), but the road tax at $4k a yr knife.gif

Any bros or sis have this same dilemma? Whats your best choice vehicle as a big family carry all?

Thanks for reading and your kind response.. happy.gif

can consider those pre-owned used vehicles. they might come at a cheaper price at a lower depreciation for u. if possible try not to get disel vehicles, as they might be a burden in the long run considering the maintainance, etc.

Thanks for the feedback.. happy.gif

It's kinda hard to get a decently large vehicle to ferry a big family nowadays..

Seems to me like the govt people limit families to max 7-8 seater mpvs.. anyting bigger is classified as P or G plate commercial vehicles liao..

talk about having more kids; dunno if the MCYS n LTA in sync over the govt kuku programs.. knife.gif

Vianos (8 Seater) might as well get Big MPVs (Estima,etc) ....

Actually, u should really ask yourself if u really need a passenger Van to ferry 10 of your family all the time.....

-Within your family, is there any one else whom can also drive?

-Perhaps get a normal plate car and an OPC?

Just my opinion...

Estima is 7 seater, while Vianos is 8. Both i seen n sat in before liao.. Cost wise of course estima cheaper la, but priority is ferry altogether first ma..

Actually, u should really ask yourself if u really need a passenger Van to ferry 10 of your family all the time.....
Yes, bec some of us are not so mobile

-Within your family, is there any one else whom can also drive? -Perhaps get a normal plate car and an OPC?
No, that's why no other car, and 2 cars double the costs (2nd cheaper car or 2nd driver not an option..

But Thanks to all for your kind input.. happy.gif

to TS,

YES it can be done. Renault have 1 of those BUS on S-plate. 11 seater version(LWB). but if you ferry more than 9pax on board, you have to stick to 60km/h for safety.

Go check with with Wearnes Auto, they have done it before.


Others to look at will be VW transporter called Caravelle, they also have a version with sits 11 just like the bus and runs on diesel too.
