Scrapping your car
When the COE on your car expires, you will have to make a decision on what you are going to do with your car. The three choices you have are:

If you decide to scrap your car (because it's not worth a new COE or exporting), you will have to do so at an LTA-approved scrap yard. There are several in Singapore:

You will have to bring along the original registration card/book so if your car was paid through financing, make sure you have paid off the entire loan and have collected the original registration card before you scrap your car.

You don't have to make an appointment with the scrap yard. Just drive there (enjoy the ride; it'll be your last in this car!). Depending on the condition of the car, the scrap yard will probably pay you some money for the car, although don't expect more than $100.

The scrap yard will complete all the necessary paperwork and will inform LTA that your car has been de-registered and scrapped.

LTA will notify the last registered owner of the vehicle's de-registration, the details of any PARF/COE rebate(s) and/or arrears of road tax/late renewal fee(s), if applicable.

For more information about de-registering possibilities, please see the OneMotoring website.
