Only e-scooters that meet the following criteria can be registered and used on Singapore 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 escooter meets the UL2272 safety standard criteria.
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 deregistered on 1 January 2021, when non-UL2272 certified e-scooters are no longer allowed to be used on public paths.
To determine if an e-scooter is UL2272 certified, owners should check if their device bears any one of these certification marks:
Owners must be at least 16 years old to register an e-scooter. E-scooter owners can register:
(a) Online at www.onemotoring.com.sg/escooter, using SingPass or CorpPass two-factor authentication (2FA);
or (b) At any SingPost Post Office (only from 2 January to 30 June 2019).
The registration fee of $20 will be waived for registrations on or before 31 March 2019. To register, applicants are required to prepare the following:
If the registration is successful, LTA will immediately inform the owner of the e-scooter’s unique registration number. Owners who register their e-scooter before 1 July 2019 will have a grace period of 14 calendar days from the date of registration to fabricate and affix an Identification Mark with the assigned registration number.
E-scooter owners who want to fabricate the Identification Mark after registration can order it at https://www.passiongadgets.com/e-scooter-lta-compliant-identification-mark-sticker-plate-number/
If the registration is successful, LTA will also issue a separate LTA Registration Mark bearing the e-scooter’s unique registration number (see sample image below) to the owner. For online registrations, this LTA Registration Mark will be sent by registered post; for registrations at SingPost Post Offices, it will be issued over the counter.
Owners who register their e-scooters before 1 July 2019 will have a grace period of 14 calendar days from the date of registration to permanently affix both the LTA Registration Mark and Identification Mark on a non-detachable part of the e-scooter such as the stem. The marks should be affixed upright on the front or on either side of the stem of e-scooter. Both the LTA Registration Mark and Identification Mark must be clearly visible at all times (refer to the example below).
E-scooter owners may refer to www.onemotoring.com.sg/escooter for detailed instructions on how to affix the LTA Registration Mark and Identification Mark on the e-scooter.
Transfer of ownership and deregistration of e-scooters can be carried out online at www.onemotoring.com.sg/escooter, using SingPass or CorpPass 2FA. Non-UL2272 certified e-scooters cannot be transferred from 1 July 2019.
