Mandatory registration of e-scooters

From 2 January 2019, owners of electric scooters (e-scooters) can register their devices online or at any Post Office (except Thomson and Whampoa Post Offices). To encourage owners to register their e-scooters early, the registration fee of $20 will be waived for e-scooters registered by 31 March 2019. E-scooter registration is aimed at deterring reckless riding and facilitating enforcement efforts against errant riders to improve public safety for all path users. 


Owners who have registered their e-scooters will be issued with a unique registration number, and they are required to fabricate an Identification Mark bearing this unique registration number. LTA will also issue a separate Registration Mark to the registrant. Owners will be given a grace period of 14 calendar days from the date of registration to affix the LTA Registration Mark and an Identification Mark (bearing the unique registration number assigned to the e-scooter) prominently on the e-scooter to help identify it easily. 


It is an offence to ride a registered e-scooter on public paths without the Identification Mark or LTA Registration Mark beyond the grace period.

Adoption of UL2272 Standard for Improved Fire Safety

As part of the registration process, you will need to declare if your e-scooter has the UL2272 certification.  LTA strongly encourages the use of UL2272 certified devices to reduce the risk of fires.

To determine if your e-scooter is UL2272 certified, check if your e-scooter carries any one of these certification marks:

If your e-scooter is not UL2272 certified, you can still register it with LTA if you bought it before 1 July 2019. However, you can only use e-scooters without UL2272 certification until end-December 2020.  From 1 January 2021, they will be automatically deregistered and can no longer be used on public paths. 

Non-UL2272 certified e-scooters (new and second-hand) purchased from 1 July 2019 onwards cannot be registered with LTA.
