Users of e-scooters and electric bikes, in Singapore will soon need to pass a theory test prior to riding in public, the Ministry of Transport (MOT) announced.

The ministry has also expanded a code of conduct that currently focuses on personal mobility device (PMD) users to include guidelines for pedestrians.

In a move follow the rules for auto use,  MOT is prohibiting the use of mobile phones while riding mobility vehicles on public paths and roads, unless the phone is mounted or used hands-free. MOT also added that users below the age of 16 can continue to use their devices only when under adult supervision.

MOT’s announcement today follows the city-state’s recent ban on the use of e-scooters on sidewalks, brought by a rise in pedestrian and rider injuries.
