The log card is your vehicle’s passport and carries all the important information regarding your vehicle. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about retrieving your log card, what information is inside it, and what you can do with it.
How to retrieve your log card from LTA

First, go to onemotoring.lta.gov.sg, the Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) online portal for everything vehicle-related. Log in to the portal using your SingPass and it’ll bring you to your dashboard.

Once you get into your dashboard, find and click on “Vehicle Hub” then click on “Enquire & Print Vehicle Registration Details”. Search through the dropdown menu for the specific vehicle you’d like to retrieve the log card for and download it!

Alternatively, you can download the Motorist app and register your vehicle on that. The app will automatically retrieve your vehicle information and you’ll be able to access it directly within the app anytime you want without having to go through OneMotoring!

What information is in the vehicle log card?

The log card, much like your IC or birth certificate, holds all the car’s vital information including but not limited to:

  • Vehicle No. 
  • COE No.
  • IU No.
  • Vehicle Type
  • Make / Model
  • Primary Colour
  • Engine No. 
  • Chassis No.
  • Original Registration Date
  • Open Market Value
  • COE Expiry Date
  • COE Quota Premium

You can check out all of the information in detail for yourself once you download your vehicle's log card.

What would I need my log card for?

There are a number of reasons for why you’d need the information out from your log card. These three are the most common ones. 

1. Selling or transfer of vehicle ownership

Often when selling your vehicle, the dealer or direct buyer may request to see the vehicle's log card to get the official information on your car. The log card also carries important information like your COE expiry date which is needed when listing a car for sale.

2. Applying for Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP)

From October 1, 2024, all non-Malaysian vehicles entering Malaysia will be required to have a valid VEP. Malaysia's transport ministry requires your vehicle model and COE details for registration, both of which can be found in the LTA log card.

3. Converting your car into a private hire car

If you would like to register as a private hire driver and use your personal car as the private hire car, you would need to provide your vehicle's log card as part of the registration process. You would also have to convert your private vehicle to the private hire car scheme which can also be done through OneMotoring.
