What do you need to know if you own or want to buy e-bike in Singapore

Technical Requirements

PABs must meet the following technical requirements

LTA has revised the technical requirements for PABs to make them safer for the cyclists and other road users. From 1 February 2016, only PABs that meet the following revised requirements will be approved and sealed:

  • The construction of a PAB must be similar to that of a conventional bicycle;

  • The PAB can only be powered by an electric source;

  • The PAB must comply with European Standard, EN15194, for electric power assisted cycles;

  • The maximum continuous power output of the PAB must not exceed 250 watts;

  • The motor power of the PAB can only cut in when the rider starts to pedal;

  • The motor power of the PAB must be progressively reduced and finally cut off as the bicycle reaches 25km/h, or sooner, if the cyclist stops pedalling;

  • The maximum weight of the PAB must not exceed 20kg

Type Approval and Certification Scheme

Every new make and model PAB must obtain type-approval from any of the LTA-authorised vehicle inspection centres. Thereafter, each approved PAB must also be affixed with a seal by the AIC and registered before it can be used on public roads or cycling/shared paths.

You will need to present your PAB and the completed PAB Type Approval and Sealing Application form including all the necessary documents stipulated under INSTRUCTIONS & NOTES in the application form (PAB01) to the AIC.

Upon sealing at the AIC, the PAB must also be registered.
