    confirm cannot... even empty... you need permit from malaysia (aka must either take bus in, drive in, get permit, come back den drive van in... cos thats what my company did)

    another thing you need is a registered company in malaysia to get the permit as well... which most ppl do not have.

    I dun know what u r driving, but my friend drives his g-plate Kangoo up with no problems - he did call up ICA before his 1st trip to confirm. He need to open up the back each time he go out S'pore side 2 ensure not carrying goods. He then register with Malaysia DOT & now drives freely in/out w/o any problems... Good luck.

    u need a registered business to own a g-pate van and also need half year of yr business's financial record in order to get a loan or else need to pay it full.
    insurance is high just for the first year....the rest of the years will just depends on you........you may choose a lower price kind of insurance but of course the coverage will be different. road tax is about $300 plus for 1/2 year. diesel now is about $1/- per liter. maintenance is at $50/- for motor oil and filter for every 5000km. parking cost is almost the same compare to cars.

    during purchasing your van, the salesman will need yr business registration number to check if your business exist and they need your business rubber stamp to chop on certain documents........ wonder the rules still stays.
