Thanks for the input, guys. Was checking my in law's car.. Same error when renewing roadtax, insufficient coverage.
Bottomline is rule has changed, so anyone renewing insurance or road tax, pls note..
More likely than not it's a screwup with the dates by the insurance company.
Don't think so leh.. We agreed on the - 1 date of policy. It can't be wrong, more likely is LTA side either on policy or IT side..
When is your car registered? Is it in-line with your insurance?
Your insurance is bought till 25 Feb 2020. But is your car registered on 26 Feb or 26 Aug?
That is just an example. Insurance is for 1 year. Roadtax renewed every 6 months.
Then it's not leap year. Need to call up LTA to ask why.
Doubt that they will tell. I called earlier, lady just say "you need to cover 1 more day for your insurance"
Can check the insurance validity from onemotoring website.
One motoring can quote your insurance coverage when renewing road tax. See if I can attach example. https://ibb.co/ZKVTnwq
Why not give a call to your insurer to check it out? Could it be the case that the insurer entered the wrong date into LTA system, thus resulting in the 1 day shortage in coverage?
E.g. cover letter of insurance stated 26 Feb 2019 - 25 Feb 2020, but LTA records provided by insurer shows coverage till 24 Feb 2020?
Nothing to do with leap year, as insurer will always cover full 1 year, regardless of date the insurance starts.
I have checked my past year insurance policy. Date is consistent. I am sure that there are people who will encounter the same thing.. My colleague, in law's, myself have the same error.
