Heavy Vehicle Insurance Singapore

In Singapore, heavy vehicles licensed for road use must have commercial vehicle insurance cover before they can travel on public roads.

Heavy Vehicle Classification

There are many types of heavy vehicles that are permitted for road use, with maximum laden weight ranging from heavy to very heavy.

As indicated in LTA’s website, Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) are vehicles between 3.5 metric tonnes to 16 metric tonnes and vehicles over 16 metric tonnes are considered as Very Heavy Goods Vehicles (VHGV).

These include vehicles like the prime mover, trailer and semi-trailer, tipper truck, tow truck, lorry crane, cement mixer truck, tanker lorry, mobile crane and others.

Some of these heavy vehicles may also be engineering / plant vehicle with W plates, but it is important not to mix up the commercial vehicle insurance with the contractors plant and machinery insurance as they both cover very different things.

Heavy Vehicle Insurance vs Contractors Plant and Machinery Insurance

Contractors plant and machinery insurance covers for contractor’s plant and machinery on the construction site whereas motor insurance for heavy vehicle covers the vehicle while its travelling on public road, subject to terms of the policy.

Although there are quite a few commercial vehicle insurance companies in Singapore, not every one of them offer motor insurance cover for every single type of heavy vehicle.
