E-Scooter Registration - Mobility Scooters NOT Affected

e-scooter registration

It was announced on 7th March that compulsory registration for e-scooters will be implemented by the 2nd half of 2018. But does this affect mobility scooters?

The answer is NO.

To be clear, let us look again to LTA's classification of personal mobility devices (PMDs).

LTA classification of PMDs 

There are 4 classes of PMD. Mobility scooters, along with motorised wheelchairs, are classified as Personal Mobility Aids (PMAs).

How to differentiate between the 4 classes?

If it has 2 wheels, and has pedals for cycling, it is a Conventional Bicycle.

If it has 2 wheels, has pedals for cycling, but can also be powered by motors, it is an Electric Bicycle.

If it has 1 or 2 wheels, powered by motors, but does NOT have pedals, it is a Personal Mobility Device.

If it has 3 or 4 wheels, it is a Personal Mobility Aid.
