Using Electric Bicycles In Singapore

Electric bicycle (eBike) is a very useful tool but before using one, make sure you are aware of all the rules and regulations before purchasing one. You would not like to be checked by an LTA Officer and/or a Traffic Police Officer for using an unapproved eBike or violating traffic rules set for eBikes.

We provide you with rules and regulations for usage of eBikes in Singapore:

If your eBike has a blue colour tag instead of orange, your eBike was approved prior to Feb 2016.  It is absolutely alright to continue using it so long as you have not made any illegal modification and/or changes in electrical capabilities to it.

Both blue tag and orange tag electric bicycles are approved and allowed to be used ONLY on road and shared bicycle-and-foot paths. Main difference for a blue tag eBike and an orange tag eBike is that orange tag eBike is weighed at lighter than 20kg.
