Implementation should be end of Jan 2010, you can go to LTA website to confirm. You will need to pay the $100 first and register or opt in before you can use full day on Saturday, therefore tmr you drive must make sure you pay the $20 otherwise pay the $5000 fine.

Juz help u calculate bro, urs is 1598cc, so per year road tax is $742. With new opc rule, rebate of $500, meaning per year u need to pay $242(excl radio lic at $27).

To compare, $242-$50(current road tax)= u will be topping up $192, which equal to 10sat usage.Per year have 52 weeks so got 52 sat. Twisted Evil So worth it anot?

Alright, no problem bro. Think in this forum, opc only falls in aveo and optra these 2 types.

So i will guess state these 2 model conversion for new LTA rules.

Optra

Engine cap - 1598cc
Road tax per year - $742(after 30% rebate from LTA)
OPC rebate from LTA - $500 per year
New price for road tax - $242
Radio License - $27
Total road tax per year $269(with full usage on sat and eve of 5 majors holidays)

Aveo

Engine cap - 1399cc
Road tax per year - $626(after 30% rebate from LTA)
OPC rebate from LTA - $500 per year
New price for road tax - $126
Radio License - $27
Total road tax per year $153(with full usage on sat and eve of 5 majors holidays)

Hope this help some of the bros here. cheers

I think you left out one information....

Horsepower : ......... bhp lol! Not factor in la...

Thanks for the information, any idea if LTA has sent out any notification? If this thing is suppose to be implemented end of the month, what are the cost involve? Just the $100 admin fee or we need to top up the difference in the road tax? Mine already paid till Oct 2010. If they waive the difference on the road time, might do it but if pro-rated might think twice, because of the years of OPC usage I can count the no. of time I pay to go out on Saturday, which is less than 10 in the last 2 years.

Sometime on Sunday also never use the car or start using the car only in the morning or evening, not much of a morning person and therefore I must really consider and start looking for more Saturday morning activities. flower

No problem bro.

From wat i read from LTA's new rule, there will be a $100 admin fee. As for exisitng road tax payoff difference, it would be pro-rated. For example, my current road tax starts from 25 Oct 09 to 24 Oct 10, cost is $50. And if the new rule start on 1st feb 10, they will calculate the diff of road tax amt used till 1 feb 10, and top up the balance from 1 feb 10 to 24 oct 10. Exact calculation, i too lazy to calculate liao. Heehee. Laughing

True, this new rule dont really suit all opc owner. But i believe it will interest most OPC owner. For my case, in a year, i do need to use car on sat morning on a couple of sat. But the choice i have, i can take public bus/taxi, or spend $20 for the day license. So most of the time, i will find the $20 is not worth it as its till 3pm only. Or on some events, have to delay and push the appt to after 3pm and rot at home at 3pm. So o find this new rule will be very good for me. Very Happy

More Perks For Off-Peak Car (OPC) Owners With Launch Of Revised OPC Scheme On 25 January 2010

1. From Monday, 25 January 2010, motorists will enjoy more perks with the launch of the revised Off-Peak Car (OPC) scheme. These perks comprise the following:

(a) Unrestricted usage of OPCs on Saturdays and on the eves of 5 public holidays; and

(b) Cash rebates for conversion of normal cars to the revised OPC scheme of up to $1,100 for every six months' registration as an OPC.

2. As announced by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in August 2009, these initiatives aim to make the OPC scheme more attractive so as to encourage more car owners to opt into the scheme. This serves to support LTA's overall objective to better manage congestion during peak periods.

More driving hours with revised OPC scheme


3. Under the revised OPC scheme, all newly registered OPCs and normal cars converted to the revised scheme, on or after 25 January 2010, will enjoy unrestricted usage on Saturdays and the eves of 5 public holidays. These public holidays are namely, New Year, Lunar New Year, Hari Raya Puasa, Deepavali and Christmas.

4. The removal of usage restrictions on Saturday and 5 public holiday eves will have to be accompanied by corresponding adjustments to the tax concessions. The annual road tax discount will be correspondingly reduced from $800 to $500 under the revised OPC scheme. The minimum annual road tax will be $70, instead of $50 under the existing OPC scheme. This means that existing OPC owners who opt for the revised OPC scheme will have their annual road tax discounts reduced by between $20 and $300. This is because the tax concessions given to OPC owners were computed taking into consideration the restricted usage periods.

5. Vehicle owners who register a new car as an OPC under the revised OPC scheme will continue to enjoy an up-front tax rebate of up to $17,000.

6. Existing OPC owners can apply to convert to the revised OPC scheme on or after 25 Jan 2010 to enjoy the extended usage hours in exchange for reduced tax discounts with payment of a one-time administrative fee of $100 and applicable road tax top-up. Please refer to Annex A on details of application for conversion to the revised OPC scheme. Those who remain under the existing OPC scheme are required to purchase an electronic day licence (e-Day Licence) if they wish to drive their OPC between 7am and 3pm on Saturdays and eve of the 5 public holidays.

Cash rebates for conversion to revised OPC scheme

7. From 25 January 2010, owners of normal cars and converted OPCs under the existing OPC scheme who opt into the revised OPC scheme will enjoy a cash rebate of up to $1,100 for every 6 months the car is registered as an OPC, until the car reaches 10 years old. The car must be kept as an OPC for at least 6 months after its conversion, except in cases of deregistration or when the OPC reaches the age of 10 years, to enjoy the cash rebate. Under the existing OPC scheme, this rebate of $2,200 per year is paid as a lump-sum only at the point when the car is deregistered and is still PARF-eligible.

8. Motorists can calculate the 6-monthly cash rebates using the formula as follows:

{QP (Bid Cat) + [(Additional Registration Fee rate x Open Market Value) - Actual Green Rebate]} †

---------------------------------------------------------------------- x $1,100

$17,000

where:

QP (Bid Cat) is the actual Quota Premium paid at registration

Actual Green Rebate is the actual green rebate utilised at registration (if applicable)

† Amount capped at $17,000

Note: The above formula applies only for a full 6-month cash rebate period. Adjustments will be made for any pro-rated cash rebate period.


9. Information on the cash rebate for conversion of a normal car to an OPC is available via www.onemotoring.com.sg from 25 January 2010, under LTA e-Services > Online Enquiries > OPC/WEC Conversion fees.


Update of the e-Day Licence system
10. The e-Day Licence system to provide OPC users with more convenience when buying an e-day licence has been progressing smoothly. Some 125,000 e-Day Licences were bought successfully through the various sales channels. About 87% of these e-Day Licences were bought through the self-service online channels.

Thanks Bro Dex for the update from LTA Wink

I have yet to decide if I'm going to convert, the calculations earlier will need to deduct an additional $20 since they are going to increase it to $70 as road tax.

Every morning if you listen to the radio, they reports of heavy traffic is almost everyone, hopefully that's not the ploy of the authority to get more cars on the road and all this congestion to justify the increase in road tax, then those that convert to the full Saturdays would really be screwed.

No problem bro.

Take ur time to consider. As for me, i confirm will convert, but maybe dun have to do it on 25th. Wink

I believe now garment will give alot of 'sweets' to us(sporean). As u know wat is coming up. Very Happy

Even if the traffic got worse, i believe LTA will juz add in more ERP charges. That is juz a click away on their system to implement.

Hopefully that's the case, it will only affect those that make use of the Expressway on daily basis. It won't affect me much if they raise the ERP, I mostly use my car when they turn off the ERP gantry Razz
