Safe Distancing Measures at Traffic Police's Premises to Continue

The Multi-Ministry Taskforce announced on 19 May 2020 that Singapore will exit the Circuit Breaker and resume activities safely in phases from 2 June 2020. To avoid activities with high risk of transmission, the Traffic Police (TP) will continue using digital means as the primary mode of service provision. Members of the public should defer all non-urgent and non-essential visits to TP Headquarters, and are highly encouraged to access and transact online with TP for any of the following available e-Services:



SIX-MONTH EXTENSION TO REVALIDATE DRIVING LICENCE FOR ELDERLY MOTORISTS

In April 2020, the Multi-Ministry Task Force (MTF) announced various sets of elevated safe distancing measures as a circuit breaker to stop the trend of increasing local transmission of COVID-19. From 7 April 2020 to 1 June 2020, all non-essential activities must be stopped and deferred. This includes the medical examination for driving licence revalidation and practical driving tests.

The Traffic Police (TP) will grant a six-month extension for relevant motorists, those whose licences are due for revalidation, to submit their medical examination reports and proficiency driving test results (applicable only for Class 4, 4A and 5 licences). During this period, the driving licences of these motorists will continue to be valid and they are allowed to drive.

  1. Aged 65 years or above;
  2. Birthday falls between 7 April and 6 October (both dates inclusive);
  3. Driving licence is in force; and
  4. Driving licence is due for revalidation in 2020*.

If you fulfil the conditions, you will receive a letter from TP notifying you of the extended deadline to revalidate your driving licence. The letter will provide more details on when you should undergo the medical examination and when to submit the report, and for those who drive a Class 4, 4A or 5 vehicle, on when they need to book and pass the proficiency driving test.

For more information, please refer to the FAQs.

* Holders of a Class 1, 2, 2A, 2B, 3 or 3A driving licence must revalidate their licence every three years once they reach 65 years of age. Hence, they must revalidate their licence when they are 65, 68, 71, 74 … years of age.

Holders of a Class 4, 4A or 5 driving licence must revalidate their licence every year once they reach 65 years of age. Hence, they must revalidate their licence when they are 65, 66, 67, …, 74 years of age. Those aged 75 years or above cannot hold a Class 4, 4A or 5 licence.

The passing rates of driving and riding theory and practical tests are compiled and published here to allow learner motorists to make an informed choice when they decide which driving centre or private driving instructor to enrol under.

The passing rates are compiled and published according to data accumulated over the last 12 months.

When referring to the passing rates, potential learner motorists should note that Private Driving Instructors are:

  • Affiliated/subscribed to 1 of the 3 driving schools to utilise the school’s facilities (eg. Driving Circuit)
  • Either part-time or full-time as instructors, which may affect the number of students he/she has (eg. A part-time instructor may have fewer students when compared to full-time instructors)
  • Either operating on his/her own or working for a private driving centre, which may affect the number of students he/she has (eg. An instructor operating on his own may have fewer students when compared to instructors working for a private driving centre)

‘Other Candidates’ refer to learner motorists enrolled under Private Driving Instructors.

The Driver Improvement Points System (DIPS) is a demerit point regime for valid Singapore Driving Licence holders. It is designed to identify and rehabilitate errant drivers through a system of rewards and punishments.

Depending on the severity of the traffic offence, the licence holder may accumulate anywhere from 3 to 12 demerit points, and offered a composition fine. If the traffic offence is more severe, the licence holder may accumulate more than 12 demerit points and/or be prosecuted in court and face harsher penalties such as heavier fines, imprisonment and/or disqualification of the driving licence.

Suspension of Driving Licence

New or Probationary Licence Holders

New licence holders will be under a one-year probation from the issued date of their driving licence. During this period, the driving licence will be revoked and invalid if the new licence holder accumulates 13 or more demerit points.

Non-Probationary Licence Holders

Non-probationary licence holders will become liable for suspension if they accumulate a threshold of demerit points within a certain period. If the suspension is 1 year or more, the driving licence will be revoked and invalid:

To check your driving licence status and demerit points, please visit our E-Services page.

To check the types of traffic offences and its accompanying demerit points and fines, select 'Penalties for Traffic Offences' from the drop-down list above .

Notice of Demerit Points Accumulated

Licence holders will be notified and updated by letter(s) of their demerit points status after they settle every offence where demerit points are awarded. This is to pre-warn the licence holder to improve his/her driving behaviour, and encourage them to remain offence-free for the next 12 months until their demerit points are expunged.

Incentives for Good Driving Behaviour

Licence holders will have their previous demerit points removed from their record if they do not commit any traffic offences within a 12-month period from the date of their last traffic offence committed.

Licence holders will have all their previous driving suspension(s) removed from their record if they do not commit any traffic offences within a 24-month period from the date of their last suspension.

If you are a vehicle owner holding a valid Singapore Driving Licence with a clean driving record for a continuous period of 3 years, you will enjoy a discount over and above the No-Claim Bonus when you renew their insurance policy with participating insurance companies. You must also not have made any claims on your vehicles’ insurance for the past 3 years.


Under the Driver Improvement Points System, demerit points may be meted out to valid Singapore Driving Licence holders when they commit certain traffic offences. They may also be offered composition fines.

Notwithstanding the above, anyone who commits a traffic offence is still liable to face the full punishment(s) that the offence carries. They may be prosecuted in court and face punishments which may include fines, imprisonment, and/or disqualification of the driving licence, depending on the severity of the offence(s).

The Courts can also take into consideration past compounded traffic offences when deciding on an appropriate sentence for errant road users.


If you have an outstanding traffic offence and wish to pay the composition fine, please visit our e-Services page.
