How to Check Expiry of VEP Autopass Card
The expiry date of VEP is the expiry date of the Autopass Card, as long as your road tax/ insurance is still valid.
Driving your Malaysia-registered car or motorcycle into Singapore
To keep or use your vehicle in Singapore, you must meet these requirements:
1. Your vehicle must have valid road tax, vehicle insurance (with third party coverage), Autopass Card and LTA’s approval email.
2. When entering or exiting Singapore via the land checkpoints, you will need to use your Autopass Card to record your visit and pay entry and exit fees and charges.
3. You will need to pay Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charges if you use ERP-priced roads during ERP operating hours. There are several payment methods available for cars and motorcycles.
4. You will need to settle all outstanding fines for your vehicle. (You can check online at AXS website for outstanding offences)
5. Your vehicle has a valid Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP). VEPs have validity period of 14 days (for each entry) which starts on the date of the vehicle’s entry into Singapore, and thereafter on the date of payment during VEP renewal. To extend your vehicle’s stay in Singapore, you will need to renew your VEP.
6. Use the calculator to check your entry and exit fees and charges to ensure that you have sufficient funds in your Autopass Card.
7. You do not belong to any of the following categories:
- Singapore Citizen
- Singapore Permanent Resident (PR)
- Resident of Singapore
