How does LTA check lay up bike?


Recommended Posts

So much talk on laying up your bike and it does not need you to renew road tax nor insurance. My questions will be:

 

1) How does LTA officer check the lay up vehicle?

2) Do they visit your 'garage'?

3) What if you park your bike on the 4th floor of the multistorey carpark and they only check on the 1st floor?

4) Will they go thru each and every carpark lot?

5) Will they flip every covered bike in the lot?

6) How often do they come and visit?

 

I'm asking because there is one forumer who was asked to attend 'uneccesary' interview by LTA coz the LTA officer can't find his bike, in the end, the bike was there without the notice of the LTA officer.

 

I'm also asking because I just lay up my bike and change parking lots due to rain, or washing bike etc..

1) How does LTA officer check the lay up vehicle?---->Yes, but depend on your luck :)

2) Do they visit your 'garage'?-------->Yes, but also depend on your luck :)

3) What if you park your bike on the 4th floor of the multistorey carpark and they only check on the 1st floor?--------->i think they should check all storey:)

4) Will they go thru each and every carpark lot?--------->i think they should check all place:)

5) Will they flip every covered bike in the lot?--------->i dont think so:cheeky:

6) How often do they come and visit?--------->depend on your luck also:)

 

i used layup a bike layup about 9 months, so far they nv come and check:cheeky:

currently i have a layup bike also, dont know they will disturb me or not:cheeky:

Anyway, DONT ride out the layup bike.......

buy a bike just to park and ride around in carpark? you as well get a bicycle...

 

to lay out bike u need to have a year of season parking...

 

they wouldnt check on ur bike, just dont get caught on road..

 

They do check on your bike, cos my friend whose bike was lay off say so.

do whatever you want, but be aware of the consequences. if you dont have self discipline to not ride the bike, then better not lay it up.

I heard some riders lay up their 'racing bike' coz it's for track / circuit purpose only.

 

Go work ride another bike.

hi mc28

 

according to the link you provided, it states that

Your car cannot be used or kept on a public road or public space

 

maybe it only applies for cars only.

 

we can lay up our bikes at public carparks. lta approves it. i know because i have done it before. so long as you inform lta, make sure you buy season parking to cover your ass from getting problems with hdb, you are fine.

 

AND make sure you dont ride the bike, even if its a big car park. pls don't violate this, once caught, good luck.

lay up admin fee is about $5+.. unlay the bike you need to buy your road tax and go for inspection.. put the towing fee from laid up garage to inspection centre into consideration as well, unless you have a van to send it yourself.

Thanks for the correction bro..

 

Usually those purely for track usage bikes are nt even registered with COE, Rd Tax etc etc cos their specification isnt allowed to be on public roads..

If I dun have license but got bike on layup. Once I get my license what should I do to be legal on the streets in the shortest time possible.

 

From what I know Buy insurance,, road tax and tow for inspection.

 

But insurance they need time to process, during the process period[ eg, 2 days] can i ride ?

 

Road tax where to buy I oso dunno.

=X

Winner dont quit.!

Quitter wont WIN

I dun think so insurance need so long to approve one. Juz go to the insurance co to get it done. It will juz take a few minutes. Correct me if I am wrong here.

 

Anyway won't it be easier to wait for yourself to pass the license and then chosse the bike? Why hurry? You laid up bike still need to do maintenance when you wanna use it coz dunno how long the bike never move. Cost invovled.

 

I mean if it is the bike you wan, and it has been sold off from the shop. It only means 1 thing, not fated lor. Can slowly find a bike. You hurry, you might regret in the future. My thoughts.
