LTO’s announcement came in light of the rising number of e-bikes often sold at cheaper prices compared to other motor vehicles. Moreover, LTO issued the warning after several marketing materials claiming there’s no need to register the e-bike circulated.

LTO’s dirrector of law enforcement service said: “Hindi ka dapat nago-operate [ng e-bike] kung walang lisensya. Ang presumption, hindi mo alam kasi wala kang training…Ang registration, mandatory requirement iyan para sa insurance.”

In order to claim impounded-ebikes, the owner must pay P10,000. Meanwhile, drivers who will be caught without license won’t be issued student permits within a year.

Here are the necessary steps to register your e-bike:

Requirements:

1. Commercial invoice of the e-bike from the country of origin
2. Bureau of Customs Certificate of Payment
3. Certificated of Stock Reported (CSR)
4. Sales invoices of MV with sales evaluation from the regional office
5. PNP-TMG MV Clearance Certificate
6. Duly accomplished and approved Motor Vehicle Inspection Report (MVIR)
7. Appropriate Insurance Certificate of Cover
8. Taxpayer’s Identification Number (TIN)

Steps in registering your e-bike.

1. Submit all the required documents to the Evaluator for evaluation and computation of fees. You may find them at the transaction counters of the LTO.

2. Your motor vehicle along with duly accomplished MVIR will be inspected.

3. Obtain an official receipt from the cashier once your name is called.

4. Wait for your name to be called at the Releasing Counter to get your Certificate of Registration (CR), plates, stickers, and other requested documents.

E-bikes can be registered at the following LTO branches: Diliman District Office, Quezon City District Office, Pasay District Office, and Caloocan District Office.
