Register and Get Your LTA E-Scooter Identification Mark in Singapore

Register and Get Your LTA E-Scooter Identification Mark in Singapore

The Land Transport Authority (LTA)’s electric scooter registration scheme has just started on 2 January 2019.

This will continue till 30 June 2019. After this date, you can’t ride a non registered electric scooter anymore (so register early!).  


Take note: whether your e-scooter is certified under the UL2272 safety standard or not is irrelevant at this stage. You must register them with LTA.

Benefit of a UL2272-certified E-Scooter

If you are a proud owner of the UL2272-certified Segway-Ninebot ES2 electric scooter, congrats!


Unlike non certified e-scooters – which can only be used till 31 December 2020 – you can use your UL2272-certified device past 1 January 2021.


Fun fact: Only e-scooters that have passed all PMD electrical safety tests set by Underwriters Laboratories can be branded as UL2272-certified.

General things to prepare before registering your E-Scooter

Whether you are registering online or physically at SingPost, you’ll need to first take some photos of your e-scooter. These are the photos you must prepare to submit to the registration officers:

  1. A colourised photo of your e-scooter (make sure the entire e-scooter body is included in the image)

        2. A colourised photo of the UL2272 safety certification mark on your e-scooter (if your device is UL2272-certified)

 

Make sure you print out hard copies of your e-scooter if you’re registering at SingPost. On the other hand, do submit soft copies for online registration.

Depending on where you’re registering, there are several additional items you’ll have to get ready:

If You’re Registering At SingPost:

       3. Bring your original NRIC/FIN

       4. Fill in an application form (which you can find at any SingPost post offices)

       5. A $20 registration fee (payable in cash or NETS)*

Online Registration:

       3. A $20 registration fee (paid via credit card or eNETS)*

* You won’t need to pay this fee so long as you register before 1 April 2019.

You have successfully registered your e-scooter. What now?

After the registration process, you will be receiving a unique identification number. Next, you will need to approach a professional to fabricate an e-scooter identification mark that bears your identification number.

If you don’t already know who to approach to get your identification mark printed, come to us. We print our identification mark stickers on high resolution, outdoor solvent ink on 3M IJ15 Digital Print Film.

This is then finished with a 3M Overlaminate to protect against colour fading and surface abrasion.

You can order our stickers online at Lazada or Qoo10, or buy directly from our Oh My Bike website

There will also be an additional LTA registration mark given to you if you registered physically at SingPost (the LTA registration mark will be mailed to those who registered online).

Take note: You have a grace period of 14 days to paste both the identification and LTA registration marks prominently on your e-scooter.

Lifespan of your e-scooter registration mark

Note: If you own a certified e-scooter, be sure to “tick” the box on the registration form that asks if your e-scooter is UL2272-certified.

The good news about owning a UL2272-certified electric scooter: your e-scooter license (aka your unique registration mark) will last you for a lifetime.

For non UL2272-certified electric scooter users who have gone through registration, your e-scooter license will be valid from now till 31 December 2020. After this day, you can’t ride your device on public paths anymore – unless you switch to a UL2272-certified e-scooter.

Keeping the UL2272 certification mark on your e-scooter safe

You may be worried that someone will steal the UL2272-certification mark on your e-scooter when you leave it alone.

However, there something you can consider doing to stop this from happening. Try unpeeling your UL2272 certification mark and temporarily paste & store it somewhere safe, like on your e-scooter warranty card/receipt.

To further reassure you, do know that it is prohibited to declare a non UL2272-certified e-scooter as a certified device in Singapore. There are measures to deal with those who break the law.

As the UL2272-certification mark on your e-scooter bears a serial number unique to your device, note that you won’t be able to replace it in the event that it is lost.
