Economic activities are gradually resuming in phases in Singapore after the end of the circuit breaker on June 1.

Vehicle inspections to resume

From Monday, June 8, inspection centres authorised by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be allowed to resume vehicle inspection services for private cars, LTA said in a press release on June 5.

Inspections for private cars had previously been suspended during the extended circuit breaker period, although goods vehicles, buses, taxis, private hire cars, and motorcycles were still required to go for inspections as scheduled.

Owners whose inspection deadlines were deferred will receive notification

LTA said that vehicle owners who had their inspection deadlines deferred previously due to the circuit breaker measures will receive a notification informing them of the scheduled month of their inspection.

These vehicle owners are "strongly encouraged" to adhere to the scheduled month indicated, and to visit the inspection centres alone, and not in groups.

They should also avoid weekday peak hours from 10am to 2pm where possible, LTA said.

They must also abide by safe management measures, including using SafeEntry to check-in and check-out when entering and leaving the inspection centres.

Inspection deadlines previously extended

Previously, the deadlines for private cars to undergo periodic vehicle inspection were extended by six months, for inspections due within the circuit breaker period, or within three weeks from the end of the circuit breaker period.

This would apply to deadlines falling on or before June 21, 2020.

LTA also previously said that it would allow the road tax for such private cars to be renewed for six months, provided they have valid insurance coverage.
