Electric Scooter Registration Guide

How to Register Your E-scooter

Step 1 – Check if the device needs to be registered

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.

Step 2 – Check if e-scooter meets device criteria and is UL2272 certified

Only e-scooters that meet the following criteria can be registered and used on public paths:

  • Maximum device unladen weight of 20 kg;
  • Maximum device width of 70 cm; and
  • Maximum device speed of 25km/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 31 December 2020. These registered non-UL2272 certified e-scooters will be automatically de-registered on 1 January 2021, 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 an 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:
