Knowing your HDB parking rates is crucial if you are a driver or are in the delivery service. Avoiding parking fines is one thing, and accurately paying the correct fees is another.
For those who live in HDB estates and are planning on applying for HDB season parking, then knowing the HDB parking rates is helpful. Whether you live in an HDB flat or not, we’ll share everything you need to know about HDB car parks, from obscure HDB season parking schemes to HDB parking rates in this article.
Let’s get started!
HDB Season Parking Schemes in Singapore
Regular HDB Season Parking
Most HDB flat owners are probably already familiar with this.
HDB season parking allows you to park within a designated group of HDB car parks at any time, without having to display parking coupons. The HDB parking rates are $80 to $190 for cars, $15 to $17 for motorcycles, and $85 to $185 for commercial vehicles.
HDB season parking is sold on a calendar month basis, and the car park lots are allocated to residents based on the order of priority.
Different booking dates are allocated to different priority groups, ensuring that everyone has a fair chance at making an HDB season parking application. If you live in an HDB flat, you’ll get first priority to book a car park lot.
If your preferred car park is full, you can always choose to park at another spot within the same HDB car park group. This ensures you’ll never have to walk too far to your vehicle.
If your vehicle is a car, you will also need to note the two tiers for this regular HDB season parking as the charges are different:
- Tier 1: Applies to a resident’s first car of the household.
- Tier 2: Applies to the resident’s subsequent cars and all cars of non-residents.
How to Apply for HDB Season Parking
You can make an HDB season parking application via the HDB season parking e-service or the Mobile@HDB app that can be downloaded from either the App Store for iOS or Google Play Store for Android.
HDB season parking payments can be made online either by credit card or direct debit.
HDB Season Parking Renewal
You can renew your HDB season parking either by automatic or manual methods.
Automatic HDB season parking renewals can be done via:
These methods let you automatically pay your fees every month, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting to renew your season parking. Plus, if you renew it with the GIRO scheme, you’ll receive a 2% rebate for every successful transaction.
If you prefer to do your HDB season parking renewals manually every month, you can do so by one of the 3 methods below:
The payment method for the renewal via the e-Service and mobile app is the same as the application. You can pay either by credit card or direct debit.
Do take note that you’ll be charged a full month’s rate. So if you renew your season parking later in the month, say on 15 June, you’ll have to pay the monthly rate even though you can only use it from 15 to 30 June.
Family Season Parking (FSP)
Recently made it a personal resolution to spend more time with your family? You don’t have to worry about forking out hefty car park fees from regular family visits through the Family Season Parking (FSP) scheme.
This is because FSP costs half that of regular HDB season parking rates. Yes, you heard that right.
With FSP, you can park at the car park lots allocated for HDB season parking holders near a family member’s home. This is applicable for any hour of any day, so you can visit your family more often without feeling the need to leave early.
There is no limit to how many FSPs you can purchase, as long as there are vacant lots at your selected car park.
Here’s a table of the monthly HDB parking rates for FSP, which vary according to the type of car park and vehicle.
Now, you don’t have to worry about paying too much for parking just to have frequent cosy home-cooked meals with family!
How to Apply for Family Season Parking (FSP)
- Submit your application via the Family Season Parking e-Service or the Mobile@HDB app
- Make the payment online by credit card or direct debit
- Visit any HDB Branch with proof of your relationship with the family member (e.g. birth certificate), and proof of your family member’s residence (eg. NRIC)
Temporary HDB Parking Rates for Bereaved Family Members
With families tending to stay overnight at wakes in Singapore, parking fees can be a big headache if a wake is held in an HDB estate.
If you need to be present overnight at a wake for a day or more, you can consider applying for temporary parking at an HDB car park if you want to park nearby. Here’s how much the temporary parking costs:
|Whole-day parking in HDB car parks (from 7:00am to 7:00am the next day)||$12 per day|
|Overnight parking in HDB car parks (from 10:00pm to 7:00am the next day)||$5 per night|
How to Apply for the Temporary HDB Parking for Bereaved Family Members?
Immediate family members of the deceased can apply for temporary parking at any HDB Branch/Service Centre from 8.00am to 5.00pm on weekdays, and 8.00am to 1.00pm on weekends.
Note that you’ll need to present the death certificate of the deceased in order to qualify.
Concessionary Season Parking for Motorcycles (CSP)
If you’re a motorcyclist with an HDB season parking subscription, you can also apply for Concessionary Season Parking for Motorcycles (CSP). This is an optional add-on to the regular HDB’s season parking for motorcyclists.
This allows you to park at selected car parks without paying short-term charges. Selected car parks include white motorcycle lots at all HDB car parks (except for certain car parks where the white lots are reserved for HDB season parking after 7pm or 10.30pm) and URA car parks, excluding those in this list.
You can only hold one CSP at any time. If you have more than one motorcycle, standard season parking rules will still apply.
Do note that you’ll need to meet the following conditions to make an HDB Season Parking application under this type of parking:
- You must be a Singapore Citizen (SC), or a Singapore Permanent Resident (SPR).
- You must be an existing HDB resident.
- You must have valid HDB season parking for your flat or HDB shop with living quarters.
- The motorcycle must be registered in Singapore.
- The motorcycle must be owned by you or assigned to you by your company.
The monthly HDB parking rate of the CSP is $20. If you have an existing season parking subscription, you can pay an additional $3 or $5 for the CSP, depending on the type of car park that’s serving your flat, or HDB shop with living quarters.
How to Apply for the Concessionary Season Parking for Motorcycles (CSP)
You can make an HDB season parking application for CSP through HDB’s e-Service or the Mobile@HDB app.
HDB Overnight Parking and Other Short-Term Parking Charges
HDB overnight parking is not considered a season parking scheme as it is considered short-term parking (as with coupon and electronic parking). However, this is good to know for those who require to park overnight at a location you do not frequent.
|Type of vehicle||HDB parking rates for overnight parking|
|Car||$0.60 per half hour for locations outside Central Area. $1.20 per half hour on Monday to Saturday for locations within Central Area (7:00am to 5:00pm). For car parks with Night Parking Scheme, it is capped at $5 per night (10.30pm to 7.00am).|
|Motorcycle||$0.65 per lot for whole day (7:00am to 10:30pm) or whole night (10.30pm to 7.00am)|

What Are the Various HDB Parking Offences I Should Know About?
You risk being fined if you:
- Park at an HDB car park without a season parking pass and don’t apply parking coupons
- Park on a red lot without holding a valid HDB season parking subscription
- Exceed your parking time
- Park on or beside double yellow lines
- Park at reserved lots without valid passes
For coupon parking lots, you can opt to use Parking.sg instead of a parking coupon to pay for your parking charges.

This is a form of fraud and can result in a fine of up to $600 for all motor cars, heavy vehicles, and motorcycles for the first offence.
