ATIC Singapore Vehicle Type Approval Service

Singapore

Motor Vehicle Homologation
Singapore is one of the most affluent countries in the world and belongs to the emerging developed countries. According to the Global Financial Center Index, Singapore is the fourth largest financial center in the world after New York, London, and Hong Kong. Singapore has a land area of 710 square kilometers and a population density of 7,200 people per square kilometer. As a right-handed country, Singapore has always imposed restrictions on the growing number of vehicles, and determines the number of new vehicles to grow based on the number of vehicles scrapped. 

The government agency for Singapore motor vehicle homologation management is the Land Transport Authority (LTA). To ensure that vehicles meet the technical requirements and internationally recognized safety, the LTA requires every new make and model of vehicle to be type-approved and comply with the Road Traffic Act and its subsidiary regulations before it can be registered for use in Singapore. All motor vehicles, including electric vehicles, to be registered for use in Singapore are required to comply with the registration and technical requirements set out in the Road Traffic Act (RTA) and its subsidiary legislation such as the Road Traffic (Motor Vehicles, Registration and Licensing) Rules, the Road Traffic (Motor Vehicles, Construction and Use) Rules, the Road Traffic (Motor Vehicles, Lighting) Rules, etc.
