COE 2022 Bidding Dates & Schedule - Find Them Out Here!

The most bids are usually put in at the last few minutes of the close of the auction, so don’t be fooled if you check in a few hours before!

Those interested in buying a car would be looking at COE prices more than the stock market or latest crypto chart. If you’re in the game too, then you’d need to find out exactly when the auctions begin and end and that’s what you can see below.

There are two auctions every month that roughly coincide with the start and at the middle of the month, or every fortnight. The auctions start like clockwork on alternate Mondays at 12pm and will close two days after at 4pm. For instance, if the auction starts on 3 January 2022, Monday, it ends on 5 January 2022, Wednesday at 4pm.

The only exceptions this year are 2 May 2022 and 16 May 2022, which are public holidays. Therefore the start dates are shifted to 4 May 2022 and 17 May 2022 respectively.

The most bids are usually put in at the last few minutes of the close of the auction, so don’t be fooled if you check in a few hours before!

2022 is expected to be a year where COE is set to trend higher. If you wish to sell your car for the highest price, head over here where we will help you get the best quotes from our network of 500+ dealers in Singapore. Or if you prefer to do-it-yourself, list your car for sale on Carousell to thousands of direct car buyers. Make your decision quickly, for the next downcycle will likely only happen a few years later. It’s generally cyclical and surprisingly predictable.
