Just realised that it's really worth getting or converting to OPC.

1) Reduced initial investment
2) Lowered Taxes
3) Cheaper Insurance
4) Deferred Day Licensing - upto 23.59 next day to purchase license via various media
5) Even if you forget its ok you have 5 working days to do "self-declaration"

Of which all could be redundant since there isn't any concrete control in place to truly catch you using without paying the license...u dun say...people dun tell on you....practically won't ever get caught...

"Everyone does it...." Seen so many OPC in use everyday outside the licensing hours...dun think these people pay license everyday else would cost more than regular cars what's the point.

So...until a concrete control mechanism in place...we should take the opportunity...!

My OPC if use during restricted will pay one lor, even if some weeks have to use everyday... However, for my usage, still cheaper than normal plate, since I work near my house, walk only... But every night & weekend I drive out... A friend of mine kena for purposely not paying $20, over $10k fine... Not worth it...

You are totally wrong on this part... Anyone can caught you and submit the photo to LTA. On top of that, ERP granty(both car park and on the road) is there to detect ..plus those Bus lane LTA officers..plus TP, police car both mark and unmark..plus street camera

Yup have seen LTA officers standing by the road side with a piece of paper and copying down the red plates. Probably going back to office later to cross-reference if license was bought.

It will be worthwhile if your daily work timing suits the OPC timing. I have many friends working nightlife driving red plate. Start work 8pm, end work 4am. Off day go JB pump petrol during wee hours.

Dirt cheap.

Meaning it cost roughly about $10 per day for 10 years.

Rougly the same cost for 1 pack of cig....lol

full coe = $60k

opc coe = $60k - $17k (rebate) = $43k

 

paid 71% of the full coe with so many rules and restrictions

worth it?

 

17,000 / $20 / 10 years / 12 months = 7 days per month

if use more than 7 days per month that need to pay $20 ... already rugi compare with full coe

still worth it?

Nowadays there is no need for TP physical presence to catch offenders.

 

Enforcement can be carried out at the comfort of TP office via CCTV installed literally at all roads and is more effective than TP patrolling the roads to catch offenders.

 

That's explain the surge in numbers caught. Don't play play   [shakehead]

It made more sense to buy OPC when full COE was about 30k to 40k.

if coe is $30k many would not buy opc liao ...
coe is low ... buy opc is silly
coe is high ... buy opc is not worth it

opc is really targeted for people who dont drive their car only need it occassionally ie 2nd car
or it is a perfect match for people work at night

It made more sense to buy OPC when full COE was about 30k to 40k.

Don't ever harbor such thoughts..... Only the cheapskate will think of such ways to save money. No money? Don't drive......


I've seen many opc cars running on the road outside the permitted hours and I seriously think that nobody in the right mind would fork out $20 to buy the day license. I often wonder how come the authorities are not doing anything?


THIS IS VERY UNFAIR TO US, WE PAID SO MUCH $$ FOR NORMAL PLATE AND THESE OPC RAT HAPPILY DRIVE THEIR CAR WHEN THEY FEEL LIKE IT !!!!!!
