That's right.

 

If stock original, just drive in to inspection centre.

 

No need for svc or pay specials for those pre-inspection svc.

Bros, how old was your ride ?

LTA will send the Inspection Notice to you 2 months in advance before your Road Tax expiry & you'll be receiving the other 3 Test Centre's Notice of Inspection too.

 

As per LTA rules, all motor-cars (below 10 yrs from initial registration) , inspection is an mandatory requirement at 3 yrs, 5 yrs, 7 yrs * 9 yrs prior to renewal of Road Tax.

 

For above 10 yrs will be annually.

 

For goods vehicles were yearly inspection basis cum black smoke checking too. (Above 10 yrs will be bi-yearly basis)

 

If 1st Inspection (Can do it at "Vicom" @ Sin Ming Rd or Changi North St 1, "STA" @ Sin Ming Rd or Jln Boon Lay, "JIS" @ Ang Mo Kio St 65 or Pioneer Rd) costs ws S$ 56 + 7% GST = S$ 62.05 and no free retest if failed. (Retest @ nominal fees)

 

Tests incude:-

- check engine nos & chassis nos

- check for an illegal mods such as non standard no plates, exhaust pipe, mod of engine, illegal installation of HID lights, under-carraige LED lights, engine bay LED lights, Day Runnig Lights (DRL), in cabin LED lights, illeal mod of DVD players etc

Upon you passed of Inspection, you'll receive the Inspeciton Test Certifcate at the end of Test Station & can then process to their Rooad Tax & Insurance Cashier Counter for renewal of your next 6 months Road Tax along with your valid Insurance Test Certicate & this Inspection Certificate.

 

If you want to pay for one full year Road Tax in order to save the hassle, you can also extend your Motor Insurance with their Insurance Officer inline with your new Road Tax expiry date. (Payment of Road tax can be ararnge via "Diners Card" with interest free of 3 to max of 6 months instalment & if you're with "Chartis" Insurance, can pay up to 12 months interest free instalment)

Yes, you can renew your road tax before your current road tax expiry date due BUT you must have your Insurance extended in-line with the validity of the new 6 months road tax epxiry date as your current Insurane wll not have suffficient coverage for new road tax renewal (Min of 6 months renewal for road tax is required)

They dont care about inside cabin LED lah. Only those exterior one then they bother. Inside got nothing to do with safety of other road users.

I heard inspection centers in ulu places have shorter queue. Eg one in jurong/tuas, one in AMK near Motorola, one in Yishun. Not sure if they still operate nowadays?
