How to Use the VRN

The SNT car number plates acquired through the bid are valid for 1 year, starting from 12pm on the day after the bidding results are announced.

There are two ways to use the VRN:

  • For New Vehicles: Ask your motor dealer to use the VRN immediately when you register a new vehicle.
  • For Existing Vehicles: Log in with your Singpass to https://onemotoring.lta.gov.sg/ and navigate to Digital Services > Manage Registered Vehicle Numbers to use your bid VRN to replace the number on your existing vehicle. There will be a replacement fee of $327. Once you have replaced the VRN, you must change the number plates within 3 calendar days.

Furthermore, if the VRN is unused by the expiry date, it will be reassigned back to the LTA. You can apply for a 6-month extension of the unused VRN before the expiry date for $1,000 plus an administrative fee of $42.51 for each 6-month extension. Log in with your Singpass to https://onemotoring.lta.gov.sg/ and go to Digital Services > Extend Vehicle Number Validity to perform the extension before the expiry date.

Unsuccessful SNT Car Number Plates Bidding

Your bid amount will be refunded if your bid is unsuccessful. 

If you paid by eNETS Debit, you will receive your refund through the Interbank GIRO account indicated in your bid submission. In the case that the transaction fails, you will receive a cheque by post. If you paid by Cashier’s Order, your bid envelope containing your Cashier’s Order will be returned to you according to your preference stated in your online submission.
