First, please check if the model of your e-scooter is recognised and listed by LTA as an UL2272 certified e-scooter model (“Recognised Model”) in the list of Recognised Models (PDF, 659kb). Please ensure that every device specification matches completely with the device(s) that you are intending to bring in. If your e-scooter model is found on the list of Recognised Models, you may proceed to schedule an appointment with the E-scooter Inspection Centres (“EICs”).
You will be required to fill in and e-mail the relevant Registration Inspection application form(s) and supporting document(s) found here (PDF, 208kb) to the EICs. You may choose your choice of EIC shown in this list (PDF, 16kb). Please note that you may only arrange appointments via email. You should only submit the Registration Inspection application to the EIC after you have ensured that the model of your e-scooter is a Recognised Model.
If your e-scooter model is not found on the list (i.e. it is not a Recognised Model), you are required to have the e-scooter model recognised and listed as a Recognised Model by LTA first. This includes any variant models of Recognised Models (for e.g. models that have a different maximum speed, battery capacity and other technical specifications that affect the UL2272 certification).
To do so, please write in to LTA at the following email address LTA_escooter_insp@lta.gov.sg with the details as listed out in Table 1 (PDF, 14kb). Please ensure that all required information and documents listed at Table 1 are submitted to facilitate LTA’s assessment.
If LTA recognises the model of the e-scooter as being UL2272 certified and lists the model as a Recognised Model, you may proceed to schedule an inspection with one of the EICs by filling in and e-mailing the relevant Registration Inspection application form(s) and supporting document(s) to the EIC that you wish to have your e-scooter inspected at.
Only e-scooters that have passed the inspection and are certified will be registered by the EICs. The Registration Mark will be affixed by the personnel at the EICs on the day the e-scooters pass the inspection and retailers are required to fabricate and affix the Identification Mark no later than 3 calendar days after the registration of the device.
