Revision In Vehicle Taxes

Reduction in Road Tax by 15% Reduction in Additional Registration Fee
As announced by the Minister for Transport, Mr Raymond Lim, the Government will reduce the road tax for cars, motorcycles, taxis and commercial vehicles by 15%. The Additional Registration Fee (ARF) for cars, taxis and goods-cum-passenger vehicles (GPVs) will also be reduced.
The reduction is part of the package of measures to manage road usage, which takes effect from July 2008, and is in line with Government's approach to gradually reduce the tax burden on vehicle ownership in tandem with the shift towards more usage measures to manage congestion on the roads.
