When you buy or sell a second-hand vehicle, or when a vehicle changes hands, the ownership of the vehicle must be transferred to the new owner. Vehicles being transferred should not be under financing.
For sellers or the current owner, before transferring your vehicle, take note that:
- You can only retain vehicle numbers before the transfer.
- Taxes that have been paid and vehicle rebates will be transferred to the new owner.
For buyers or the next owner, before confirming the transfer of vehicle, take note that:
- The vehicle must have valid motor insurance under your name, covering the full period of the vehicle’s valid road tax.
- The vehicle must pass vehicle inspection by any Authorised Inspection Centre, if vehicle inspection is required before road tax can be renewed.
