Electric Scooter Registration Guide

How to Register Your E-scooter

All motorised personal mobility devices with handlebars must be registered. This includes e-scooters, which must be registered, and other motorised PMDs such as hoverboards which do not need to be registered.

Examples of devices that need to be registered are motorised scooter, power-assisted bicycle.

Examples of devices that do not need to be registered are Personal Mobility Aids such as mobility scooters and electric wheelchairs are excluded.

1 Power-assisted bicycles (PABs) are to be registered under a different registration regime under the Road
Traffic Act. PABs are subject to additional inspections and a type approval regime that e-scooters are not
subject to.

Only e-scooters that meet the following criteria can be registered and are deem to have complied with the device criteria for use on public paths:

  • Maximum device unladen weight of 20 kg;
  • Maximum device width of 70 cm; and
  • Maximum device speed of 25 km/h.

As part of the registration process, e-scooter owners are required to declare that their e-scooter meets the above criteria.

UL2272 Certification
The UL2272 standard specifies a set of safety requirements covering the electrical drive train system including the battery system, other circuitry and electrical components of motorised PMDs such as e-scooters. We will require all motorised PMDs to be certified to the UL2272 standard to improve public safety and address the risk of fire incidents involving motorised PMDs.

Upon registration, owners will be required to declare if their device is certified to the UL2272 standard.

Existing non-UL2272 certified e-scooters can be registered as long as they were purchased before 1 July 2019. Owners can continue using these registered non-UL2272 certified e-scooters on public paths until 30 June 2020. These registered non-UL2272 certified e-scooters will be automatically deregistered by 1 July 2020, when non-UL2272 certified e-scooters are no longer allowed to be used on public paths.

It is an offence to make a false declaration. Offenders may face cancellations of their e-scooter registration and forfeiture of their registration fee. Offenders may also be fined up to $5,000 and/or face imprisonment up to 12 months. It is also an offence to use a non-compliant e-scooter on public paths.

If found, the e-scooter could be seized and forfeited, and offenders can be fined up to $5,000 and/or face an imprisonment up to 3 months.

To determine if an e-scooter is UL2272 certified, owners should check if their device bears any one of these certification marks:

Safety Certification Marks

E-scooter owners can check if the model of your e-scooter is recognised and listed by LTA as a UL2272 certified e-scooter model (“Recognised Model”) in the list of Recognised Models (PDF, 669kb).

Mandatory e-scooter registration inspection will resume from 4 June 2020 onwards.

From April 2020 onwards, LTA will introduce a mandatory inspection requirement for e-scooters, to ensure that these devices comply with the device criteria for use on public paths. 

Procedure for Registration Inspection (RI)

The following flowchart illustrates the step-by-step process when sending in your e-scooter(s) for RI:

First, please check if the model of your e-scooter is recognised and listed by LTA as a UL2272 certified e-scooter model (“Recognised Model”) in the list of Recognised Models (PDF, 816kb). Please ensure that every device specification matches completely with the device(s) that you are intending to bring in. If your e-scooter model is found on the list of Recognised Models, you may proceed to schedule an appointment with the E-scooter Inspection Centres (“EICs”).

You will be required to fill in and e-mail the relevant Registration Inspection application form(s) and supporting document(s) found here (PDF, 208kb) to the EICs. You may choose your choice of EIC shown in this list (PDF, 15kb). Please note that you may only arrange appointments via email. You should only submit the Registration Inspection application to the EIC after you have ensured that the model of your e-scooter is a Recognised Model.

If LTA recognises the model of the e-scooter as being UL2272 certified and lists the model as a Recognised Model, you may proceed to schedule an inspection with one of the EICs by filling in and e-mailing the relevant Registration Inspection application form(s) and supporting document(s) to the EIC that you wish to have your e-scooter inspected at.

Only e-scooters that have passed the inspection and are certified will be registered by the EICs. The Registration Mark will be affixed by the personnel at the EICs on the day the e-scooters pass the inspection and retailers are required to fabricate and affix the Identification Mark no later than 3 calendar days after the registration of the device.
