The Land Transport Authority (LTA) went through a massive change to its system by digitalising its services, among which are the vehicle ownership transfer and deregistration process in Singapore.
In the past, one will have to either head down personally to LTA to request for a Transfer PIN (TPIN) over the counter, or to request for one online, which will then be mailed over to the registered address of the vehicle in order to proceed with a vehicle sale, ownership transfer or deregistration - this can take a couple of days to complete.
With the new digitalised services introduced back in 2018, the process has been simplified substantially - vehicle owners can complete such transactions with their SingPass or CorpPass on the One Motoring website.
Step by step guide to transfer vehicle ownership online
The process to transfer a vehicle can now be easily completed online by just the current and next owner of the vehicle with a smartphone. Without the need for a TPIN, the lead time for a vehicle ownership transfer is also much shorter. Here's how you transfer your vehicle with LTA's One Motoring website.
Information needed to initiate a vehicle ownership transfer
1. Vehicle registration number
2. Next owner's identification number (NRIC, FIN or Company registration number)
3. Next owner's name
4. Next owner's mobile number and email address (optional)
*There are several requirements to meet before the next owner can accept the transfer, among which is a valid motor insurance under the next owner's name. You can find out more about it at One Motoring.
