GIA Unveils Groundbreaking Vehicle Accident Report History (VARH) Service: A Game-Changer for Informed Vehicle Transactions

On February 21, 2024, the General Insurance Association (GIA) of Singapore made a significant announcement, introducing its latest online offering – the Vehicle Accident Report History (VARH) service. This innovative service is seamlessly integrated into the GIA Easy Accident Reporting System (GEARS), the association's advanced motor accident reporting online platform.



Vehicle owners, currently registered on the system, now have the opportunity to procure comprehensive reports displaying the dates of accident filings made by vehicle owners or drivers over the past six years. Priced at S$90 per report (exclusive of GST), this invaluable information is accessible exclusively through the Singpass MyInfo authentication system.


At present, the VARH service caters exclusively to individual vehicle owners, enhancing transparency in the buying and selling process.


This novel service is an extension of the successful GEARS platform, initially launched in 2020 to streamline consumer experiences with seamless and convenient payment and delivery of third-party accident reports. While GEARS revolutionized remote access to accident reports for motorists, VARH takes it a step further by empowering potential buyers of second-hand vehicles with crucial insights into a vehicle's accident history before making a purchase decision. GIA emphasizes that businesses, particularly motor vehicle traders, may encourage vehicle owners to obtain the report as a prerequisite for the smooth transfer of vehicle ownership.


Mr. Ho Kai Weng, Chief Executive of GIA, expressed the significance of this development, stating, "For the first time, car owners can access the list of the accident reports made on their vehicles. Both buyers and sellers can use it as part of a more informed vehicle buying and selling experience."


This pioneering VARH service not only represents a groundbreaking leap in enhancing consumer knowledge but also marks GIA's commitment to providing a comprehensive suite of tools for a more informed and secure vehicle transaction process.
