5 Things You May Have Missed on LTA PMD Registration

On 12 December 2018, LTA announced the implementation of mandatory registration of Personal Mobility Devices or PMDs, requiring users to have their devices registered to deter reckless riding through personal accountability, encouraging responsible riding behavior as the registration also facilitates in enforcement efforts and catching errant riders. Here are some of things you may have missed from not registering your scooter yet:

1. Registration is no longer free after 31 March 2019

When the LTA first commenced PMD registration on 2 January 2019, they allowed users to register their devices free of charge to encourage more users to register their devices earlier ahead of the 1 July 2019 deadline. However, if you have missed the free registration window on 31 March 2019 then you will be required to pay $20 for every PMD registered to the LTA through onemotoring.com.

2. You can only register your own PMD if you are 16 years or older.

If you are below 16 years old, you are not allowed register and therefore, own an e-scooter. However, that does not mean you are not allowed to use an e-scooter as you can still use an e- scooter if it is registered by an adult such as your parents or guardian. We have another article here talking more about this topic.

3. There are 3 marks that are required to be present on your PMD.

These are your UL2272 certification sticker, LTA registration mark and your identification mark.

The UL2272 mark would have been affixed to your scooter by the manufacturer if it has been UL2272 certified. If it does not have the UL2272 sticker, it can still be legally used as long as you have registered it before 1 July 2019. 

The LTA registration mark would have been issued to you through your registered mail if you have already registered your device, if you do not know how to register your device, you can click here for a tutorial on how to do so. 

For the identification mark, you will have to purchase it from the retailer you purchase your scooter from or any of the LTA listed sticker printing companies, we also offer sticker printing services as well for a low fee of $2.90 a piece. All these have to be affixed onto your device before you can ride it legally on public paths but not on roads.

4. You can no longer register your PMD through all SingPost offices.

All registration of PMDs can now only be done through the OneMotoring website at https://www.onemotoring.com.sg/escooter and can no longer be done at any and all SingPost offices

5. You will no longer be allowed to transfer your non-UL2272 device after 1 July 2019.

Along with the registration of non-UL2272 devices no longer being allowed after 1 July 2019, users will no longer be allowed to be transferred to another user. However if you have a non-UL2272 device that you no longer want to use, feel free to approach us at the iPassion Warehouse as we have trade in programs available where you can trade in your non-UL2272 device for a discount on a new UL2272 model.
