Most electric bike and electric scooter users have passed the new mandatory theory test in Singapore.
Singapore: Almost everyone who took a mandatory assessment to use their electric scooters and electric bicycles (PABs) in public areas so far has passed the test.
The Land Transportation Authority (LTA) said that as of 5 p.m. on Thursday (July 1), about 96 percent of the 177 people had done enough to receive their certification.
Registration for the test began on Wednesday, and testing began on Thursday.
E-scooter and PAB users will need to pass the test later this year to continue using the devices in public spaces.
So far, more than 1,900 runners have signed up for the event. After receiving a link to the online trial, the LTA said they would have 90 days to complete the evaluation.
Electric scooter drivers will be required to answer 30 multiple-choice questions in 30 minutes.
PAB or e-bike riders will have 40 minutes to tackle 40 multiple-choice questions.
You must score at least 80% in the exam to improve your understanding of active mobility rules, codes of conduct, and safe driving.
All those people who pass will receive a digital certificate with no expiration date.
At the end of May, there were 6,671 registered e-scooters and 31,660 registered PABs in Singapore.
Thousands of e-bike users wish to work for the top three food delivery companies, which stopped accepting passengers using electric scooters following the device ban on trails in late 2019.
Grab, Deliveroo, and Food Panda told The Straits Times that they had reminded their food delivery passengers to sign up for the trial. However, the three companies did not provide figures on the number of PAB users working for them.
Grab said it encourages its delivery partners to take the mandatory theory test to continue delivering orders through its GrabFood platform.
Deliveroo said it would introduce initiatives in the coming weeks to encourage its riders to complete the theory test earlier.
Meanwhile, Food Panda said he is seeking his passengers to sign up for the theoretical test. The firm added that a third of its passengers use PAB.
Starting next year, those caught traveling without the certificate can be fined up to $ 2,000 or jailed for six months or both for the first offense.
