Yes, you can. However, please check first with your car dealer if you are allowed to source for or secure a car loan from a different company.

Most banks do not take in direct individual loan applications, they usually prefer to assign loan processing to financing companies to save time and simplify the process even further.

At Speed Credit, we do not only do loan submission. We’ll advise and guide you through the entire process, compare and find you the best bank offer or most suited financing package, and get you the lowest possible interest rate. In addition, we’ll do all the necessary LTA and bank transactions and paperwork for you, and if applicable, assist you on your current loan’s full settlement and on the car ownership transfer too.

COE Renewal Loan

There’s no need for you to go down to LTA as the COE will be renewed by us. We will also assist to process all the necessary LTA documents or paperwork for you.

At the moment, our COE Renewal Loan interest rate starts from 1.80% – this interest rate may vary from time to time. To check our current interest rate offer(s) please fill out our enquiry form and our car finance and COE expert will then contact and advise you on this.

As for the repayment period, it depends if you are opting for a 5-year (4 years repayment) or a 10-year COE renewal (7 years repayment).

There is a one-time admin fee and it varies from the range of loan packages we offer.

There is no difference in PQP between OPC/ROPC and Normal car.

We provide 100% financing based on the PQP amount. However, on a case by case basis, we do offer more than 100% PQP at a higher interest rate of 3.18% for passenger vehicles.
The monthly instalment would depend on the PQP, interest rate, and loan tenure. Based on these factors, we’ll assess, work out a quotation for you and send it to you through email. If you only want to get an indicative monthly instalment figure, please feel free to use our Monthly Repayment Calculator.

The best time is 4-6 weeks before your car’s COE expiry date.
Yes, for a 5-year COE renewal, your car must be deregistered at the end of the 5-year period. As for a10-year COE renewal, your car is eligible for a second COE renewal.
Either is fine. However, we prefer loan applications to be submitted via our website or through our corporate email (loan@speedcredit.com.sg).

Yes, but please take note that if you renew your COE early, LTA will forfeit the remaining PARF & COE rebate of your vehicle. Below is an example for your reference:

Situation:
The COE expiring is on 15 April 2021 and you wish to renew your COE early in January 2021.

Renewal Process:
The COE will be renewed using January’s PQP, and the COE expiry will then change from 15 April 2031 to 31 January 2031.

Please submit your application as early as possible as the COE has to be renewed before the end of January.

COE bidding is only required for new cars. For COE Renewal, we only need to pay the Prevailing Quota Premium (PQP) for your vehicle category to renew your COE Certificate. Speed Credit will also do the COE Renewal for you.
PARF rebate is only eligible if you deregister your vehicle within the first 10 years. Any PARF rebate will be forfeited by LTA should you renew your vehicle’s COE. PARF rebate will be forfeited if you opted for COE renewal with the intention of extending your vehicle’s lifespan beyond 10 years. However, you’ll get the PARF rebates if you deregister your vehicle within the first 10 years.
Yes, we can still renew the COE if it is still within 1 month of its expiry date. However, please take note that you will have to pay a late renewal fee. For more info, please refer to https://onemotoring.lta.gov.sg/content/onemotoring/home/owning/coe-renewal.html#Late_Renewal.
