How to transfer motorcycle ownership in Singapore?

Posted On : 10-12-2019

Whether you are a newbie or an old veteran with years of riding experience, some of us might recall the "good" old days doing a vehicle transfer at Land Transport Authority using the (M01) transfer form. Gone with tremendous long queuing up at Sin Ming (LTA) customer service centre to collect a ticket and waiting absurdly long for your number to be called before you can do the vehicle transfer at the counter.

With the new digital transformation by LTA (One Motoring) website since November 2018, all vehicle transfer can now be done online without the need of even stepping out of your house.



We are going to share with you some step by step procedure on how you could do vehicle transfer of ownership using the digital way. So do share this article with your future buyer in case he/she is confused about this procedure.

Let's presume you (buyer) have already met up with the seller at our used motorcycle listing. After viewing and negotiating the price of the bike, what should you do next?

Usually, we would advise both the seller & buyer to pen down their offered & agreed price on the agreement form before proceeding on the transfer of ownership.
