UPDATE [6 Aug 2019]: The PMD safety certification deadline has been moved forward to July 2020. All non-UL2272 certified devices will be auto-deregistered and cannot be used in public after July 2020. Users can continue to ride only UL2272 certified PMDs beyond the July 2020 deadline.
We will also provide additional tips on the things to do after the initial registration (yes, there are a few more steps you’ll need to take before you can start scooting legally).
All electric scooter owners can choose to either register their e-scooter in person or via the web.
If you prefer to physically register your PMD or you conveniently live near a Singpost post office, you can visit any of the local Singpost branches in Singapore. Moreover, don’t go in empty-handed. There are several things you’ll need to prepare in advance for a seamless registration, which includes:
* This fee only applies to those who register after 31 March 2019. If you get your e-scooter registered before this date, you won’t need to pay the registration fee (i.e. register early so its free!)
For those who prefer the ease of the internet, you can register online at www.onemotoring.com.sg/escooter. If you’re registering your own e-scooter, log in with your SingPass. On the other hand, use your CropPass if you’re registering for your company.
Similarities: Regardless of whether your e-scooter is UL2272-certified or not, you’ll have to register your device before 1 July 2019. This is because after this date, it is illegal to ride unregistered e-scooters on public paths.
Differences: All registered non UL2272-certified electric scooters will be automatically deregistered on 1 January 2021. This is because come this date, the use of all non UL2272-certified e-scooters will be banned in Singapore. Moreover, retailers can’t sell you non UL2272-certified e-scooters from 1 July 2019 and beyond.
Conversely, there are no such restrictions on your registered UL2272-certified electric scooter. You can use it for the years to come without a problem.
Not all personal mobility devices need to undergo registration. Only electric devices that fulfill the below two criteria need to:
After you have been through registration, you should receive a unique serial number. You’ll then need to get this serial number printed in the form of a identification sticker or mark. In fact, there are very specific criterions for your identification mark.
If you don’t know where to get your identification mark printed, you’re in luck!
At Mighty Velo, we are opening our printing services to all e-scooter owners. Moreover, we’ll give you all 8 of the possible variations your sticker can appear as. This means you can choose whichever sticker design appeals to you the most and attach it on your e-scooter.
