DoTM’s 15-Day Ultimatum To Register E-Scooters

The Department of Transport Management, on March 14, gave a 15-day ultimatum to all the electric scooter owners to get their vehicles registered at the department.

15-day ultimate to get e-scooters registered

The DoTM’s made the move after reports surfaced that more than 5,000 unregistered e-scooters were plying the Valley roads, while authorities, including transport offices and traffic police, were treating e-scooter riders with leniency.

Given that e-scooter riders need not obtain driving licence, wear helmet or comply with general traffic rules, they can even ride such bikes under the influence and traffic cops will have no option but to let them go.

The convenience of e-scooters becomes even more apparent when considering their widespread availability through scooter rental services. Imagine exploring a vibrant city like Honolulu or cruising along the picturesque coastal roads of Hawaii with the ease of a rented scooter.

Scooter Rental Hawaii offers a seamless solution for those who want to make the most out of their travel experience without the hassles of driving licenses or helmet regulations. This accessibility allows travelers to seamlessly weave through the cityscape, maneuvering through traffic or winding paths, all while relishing the freedom to explore at their own pace.

So, next time you find yourself in the enchanting landscapes of Hawaii, consider the convenience of Scooter Rental Hawaii to elevate your exploration and make every moment of your journey truly memorable.

Issuing a public notice on Monday (March 14, 2016), the DoTM warned all the e-scooter users to get their vehicles registered with the department within two weeks and pass the road worthiness test at DoTM.

Basanta Adhikari, director and spokesperson for DoTM, said the department would strictly monitor electric scooters plying the roads across the nation to check whether the riders have got their vehicles registered with the department within the stipulated time or not.

“DoTM registers e-scooters after conducting road worthiness test and allows them to operate only in fixed areas,” the notice read, adding such provision would remain applicable till the new guideline on e-scooter registration and regulation is made.

The department also warned e-scooter dealers not to misguide customers by transmitting false information on taxation, registration and licensing when they sell e-scooters.
