    Question Car Number Plate

    So I am buying a car and the seller wants to keep the existing number plate.

    I can now bid a number plate of choice from LTA to put on this used car i buying rite? Min bid is S$1000? or can choose from a listing of "normal" sequential numbers from LTA (if there is such a thing)?

    Can I swap number plates between 2 used cars? heard its possible but damn expensive?

    Anyone in the know can advise?

    Thanks

    you can check out Land Transport Authority or onemotoring.
    minimum bid is S$1000 but add $300+ to fix this number to existing car. for new cars, only add $100.

    Can i swap the plate on my used car A to this used car B I m buying (as seller wants to keep his number plate)? Then I just get a new plate to stick on my existing used car A? Cost involved?

    Re: Car Number Plate

    New Plate to New car --> Cost of bidding the plate

    New Plate to Old car --> Cost of bidding the plate Plus $300 admin

    Old plate (Assuming yr own plate) to New car --> $100 retention fee

    Old Plate (U buying over) to New car -->
    Cost of the plate PLUS
    Insurance Cover Note PLUS
    Transfer of the car (effectively the Plate) to yr Name PLUS
    Retention Fee of $100
    Transfer of the Car back to the seller

    Old Plate (U buying over) to OLD car -->
    Cost of the plate PLUS
    Insurance Cover Note PLUS
    Transfer of the car (effectively the Plate) to yr Name PLUS
    Retention Fee of $1300
    Transfer of the Car back to the seller

    In short play old number plate not cheap. Work out the sum.. Seller may sell plate cheap but alot of overheard involve esp to LTA.

    To save some cost we use some near to scrap non PARF vehicle as transfer fee n insurance is cheaper and the number of ownership doesn't matter much here.
