The transport ministry is proposing a one-year extension to the rule requiring e-hailing vehicles to be under 10 years of age.

Transport Minister Wee Ka Siong said the move would ease the burden of drivers affected by the Covid-19 crisis, who would not have to replace their vehicles once they hit the 10-year limit.

“I would like to announce that during the Covid-19 period, the maximum age for public vehicles will be automatically extended by a year,” Wee said in his winding-up speech on the budget for his ministry, which was passed by bloc vote later.

Under current e-hailing regulations, only vehicles manufactured less than 10 years ago will be allowed to renew their road tax.
