Unhappy riding in singapore

does anybody have any info about getting all the right paperwork for riding in singapore? i imported my bike from Bali yesterday but when i tried to go through customs they said i need a letter of introduction from the the auto mobile association of singapore as well as an autopass card from another government department.

does anybody know a way around this as i only want to go from the port to the border with malaysia (maybye 25km away)

thanks in advance.

Ben

Hi Ben,

We had our 4x4 shipped to Singapore from India in 2009. We were also informed about this letter, autopass (you need to make arrangements for toll in advance) and were told to get insurance before we could leave the port.

We decided to try our luck first and drove to the exit of the port. We just handed over our CdP for a stamp, which they gave us within 5 minutes, they openend the boom and off we went

This was probably the easiest import ever during our 3 year trip! But we must have been extremely lucky there. You could try though. If they won't let you go, you can probably park your bike and grab a cab to arrange things with the AA.

We had a very helpful agent who allowed us to unload our Landy ourselves to cut costs. They were very straightforward.

Name of agent:

RONG DE DISTRIBUTION PTE LTD
Tel: (65) 6223 1833
Fax: (65) 6720 1683
Website : WELCOME TO RONG DE GROUP OF COMPANIES

We were helped by a guy called Dave (davegordev@rongde.com.sg) not sure if he's still working there. Their handling fee was very reasonable.

Let me know when you are around KL and fancy a

Cheers,
Don

hey people thanks for the quick replies but they were to no avail.

the automobile association of singapore told me that because i am only 21 they could not insure me and inturn = no autopass, no letter.

so i ended up getting a tow truck to the malay border (had to push it through, very embarrassing haha)

again thanks.

Ben.

yes thanks don will definatly give you a buzz when i get to KL, cheers.
