What to do when COE ends / how to scrap bike


Recommended Posts

What do I do when my motorbike COE ends? Do I need to scrap it? Can I extend COE (how to do so?) Do I need to send it to a scrap yard (where are the 'scrapping places' in Sg?) Can I salvage parts? 

My bike is Super4 Revo 2013. 

Never dealt with end-of-life bikes before 😕  Planning now whether to extend COE, or try to sell off to someone else to deal with this problem aha

If not loaning to extend the COE, it can done directly at LTA website. Very straight forward.

I recently scrap my 23 year old Suzuki Impulse 😢 I got one of the bike recovery guy to send it to the scrap yard for me. He charge me $40. But you'll need his particulars to submit to LTA prior to sending it down. 

Your 2013 Super4 is worth extending it but probably wait for the COE price to lower down first.

Hi Lee, I am supposed you can also ride it down to the scrapyard? or do you need a vendor to do it?

u can ride straight to scrapyard but have to be before the COE expiry date.. once after the date the bike is not allowed to be on the roads anymore. you can take back more money if you deregister + scrap yourself. if you ask bikeshop to settle, they might take some admin fee ~200 bucks from u.

Wah still must pay 200! I thought might still be able to get back some money from selling parts to the bike shop 😅 hmm..seems like might be better to see if I can sell my bike to someone who just wants to ride for 1-2 years. Let them extend the COE haha

I see. Do you already know the time limit for doing so? I.e 3 days to 1 week before expiry? Frankly speaking, scraping the bike before expiry date (a week or 2) is okay. So long no need to pay additional admin fees I think is worth while. A saving is a saving.

Unfortunately mine could not move anymore, so I had to use the recovery guy's service. But I believe (but not sure) that the scrap yard will give some money to the person that sends it in (scrap metal money). The reason is because some years ago, a friend scrap his car himself and the scrap yard gave him $100 for scrap metal. So I believe it'll be the same, just don't know how much. The recovery guy also sound very keen when I contacted him.

I submit the details of my bike to deregister on 17 Nov and was given 1 week (24 Nov) by LTA, so it's 7 days.

Just make sure the bike still have a valid road tax/insurance & COE on that last day when you ride to scrap yard.
