While it may seem like a massive change to LTA's systems, it really isn't an unexpected one. Looking back, LTA has been phasing out physical documents in favour of digital, online systems for quite some time.

By digitalising, many processes are now much simpler, convenient and reliable.

Since 2006, cars are no longer issued with a physical log card
However, there remain some who attest to the significance of physical documents, such as how only the actual, hard-copy vehicle log card can instil a true sense of ownership of a car - something they believe a digital document can never achieve.

Nonetheless, with the advancement in technology, going paperless is clearly the way forward.

Why digitalise?

The simple answer will be that it is a step forward, and that most things are done online in current times. However, digitalising services is not just to keep up with times, it also provides vast improvements in convenience and safety.

One.Motoring offers a wide range of services conveniently
Platforms such as One.Motoring are able to handle high volume transactions and offer secured transactions through multiple payment channels such as eNETS, Diners Club, GIRPO and GIRO-On-Demand, as well as kiosk payment services that are secured with digital services.

They also allow integration between systems across LTA and their industry partners by facilitating the distribution of sensitive user information.

By digitalising, many processes can also be automated, greatly improving efficiency. By removing hardcopy documents, fraudulent behaviour can also be minimised as forgery will not be possible.
