Only LTA can remove the OPC seal from the license plate.

 

Make the plate first, then go LTA to replace.

You are referring to this seal, right? The one circled and arrowed.

I have asked before. Only LTA can remove it because they do not want people to tamper with it. 

The seal is not allowed to be removed by the owner or other workshops.

 

You should check with LTA again.

I have actually gone through the whole process, when I had to fully respray my car after an accident.

The workshop cannot suka suka break OPC seal to remove the licence plate.

The owner (I) had to go down to LTA personally, to apply for a permit first. Other than all my personal and the workshop’s particulars, I had needed to also provide photo proof that my current plates and seals are intact.

But accident car cannot drive there right?
So LL had to ask workshop to take photo and send it to me.
And then I had to forward that to LTA, via e-mail.
No photo proof, no permit issued.

With the LTA permit in hand, I had to sign a declaration to bring the repaired car (within x weeks) to either STA or Vicom, queue up, pay (can’t remember how much) ... cos only they can fix back new seal.

The workshop that breaks the seal (with permit issued) must also fill in its full particulars, description of work done, and company chop ... before STA or Vicom will affix the seals.

As is usual for all garmen procedures, you MUST fully follow all instructions and procedures ... else run the risk of getting stuck, or worse, get fined for doing it your own way!

Bro.. your font are painful to eyes.. I'm converting opc to normal plate

Have you already go down to LTA to convert and paid your remaining OPC rebate?

If you have then you can go to any outside workshop to remove the seal. Even the workshop that you do license plate will be able to remove. They will just use their powertool to saw off the seal. You can even keep the seal as a momento.

But make sure you got the payment slip from LTA that car is fully converted before you remove the seal.

No rush to convert to black plate as long as you got the slip from LTA. Your ui will detect as normal car. The LTA staff tild us to change plate within 2 weeks.

Speaking from a guy who converted his car from opc to normal plate....twice.

To prevent pple from tampering with the number plate, eg change from red plate to black plate, and change back to red plate when go for inspection.

There is a serial number on each seal, so if u break the seal and later use another seal, the inspection centre will know during the annual opc number plate inspection. So dont try anything funny on ur opc car number plate, ah gong will know.

actually what is the purpose/functionality of the seal ha?

In the olden days, there are no electronic detection for weekend cars. All is manual and rely on TP and LTA officers to spot you in the roads.

Then some smart Alec decide to chao keng and trick the system by changing their red plate to black so that officers will not be able to spot them and they can use the car machiam normal car.

Once LTA realise got such people spoil market, they introduce the seal so no one can tamper with them.

Now With electronic detection via IU, the officers are relief from the tedious OPC spotting as there are many electronic sensors installed all over SG.

It has since rendered the seal obsolete since changing plate will not work now. But LTA kept the process anyway.

All thanks to these stupid chao kengs, everytime if OPC car want to mod and take out bumper, must apply for removal from LTA and pay 100+ cos the seal is welded all the way into the classis of the car, cannot take out bumper without seal being removed.

I think TS better go to LTA for advice.

Tampering with the OPC seal, intentionally or unintentionally, is not a joke.
