COEs for commercial vehicles, which include goods vehicles and buses, increased to S$43,001 from S$42,200 in the previous bidding exercise.
Open category COEs, which can be used for any vehicle type but end up being used mainly for large cars, rose to S$83,911 from S$82,501.
A total of 2,513 bids were received, with a quota of 1,775 COEs available.
This is the last bidding exercise under the current quota for the quarter.
For February to April, the quota is at an eight-year low as the Government maintains Singapore's vehicle growth rate at zero until Jan 31, 2025.
