Learning Tips: What Is The Meaning Of Singapore Registration Car Plates Colour?

All licence plates numbers in Singapore come with the vehicular registration number, suffixed by the official reference in the form of a letter of the alphabet. Two colouring schemes are in use: the black on white(front) with black on yellow(rear) scheme or the older white on black scheme. The number plate has to be made of a reflective plastic or metallic with textured characters made of black (for white-yellow) or white or silver (for black ones). No standardised typeface is used and all are based on the Charles Wright number plate typeface used in the UK, from thinner looking variants used commonly by SBS buses, taxis and goods vehicles, and even the FE-Schrift font used in Germany can sometimes, though rarely, be seen - though this is prohibited by LTA.
  • S - Private vehicle (since 1984)
  • BA - Alphabetical series
  • 1234 - Numerical series
  • A - Checksum letter (the characters "F", "I", "N", "O", "Q", "V" and "W" are never used as check digits.)

Vehicles registered as "Off-peak Vehicles", affectionately known as "Weekend Cars", pay a cheaper road tax as compared to normal private cars, although COE charges apply as usual. They display number plates with white characters on a red background. These vehicles are only allowed to run on the roads in Singapore after office hours (7pm-7am) on weekdays, full day on Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays.
