Certificate of Entitlement (COE) premiums have finally slipped across the board in the second round of bidding for April, following months of steady rises.

Recent high petrol prices, coupled with the announcement that COE supply is set to increase for Cat A and E come May 2022 might have encouraged new car shoppers to delay their purchases in the past weeks.
