Here are the e-bikes categories according to MMDA:
E-SCOOTER (L2B) – a three-wheeled vehicle, with or without pedals, powered by electrical energy capable of propelling the unit up to a maximum speed of 50 km/hr.
E-MOTORCYCLE (L3) – a two-wheeled vehicle, powered solely by electrical energy capable of propelling the unit more than 50 km/hr.
E-TRIKE (L4, L5) – a three-wheeled motor vehicle powered solely by electrical energy with a minimum rated power of 1000 W capable of propelling the unit to no more than 50 km/hr and having a maximum curb weight of 600 kg. It is designed for the carriage of goods, cargoes, freights, and passengers.
E-QUAD (L6, L7) – a four-wheeled microcar with limited weight, power, and speed. They are further classified into light electric quadricycles and heavy electric quadricycles.
Only e-bikes under L2b, L3, L4, L5, L6, and L7 categories require LTO registration.
Meaning e-scooters don’t require registration, although they are mandated to use protective gear under the same administrative order.
As for the registration process, e-bikes have the same registration process as any other motor vehicle.
For e-bikes bought after the implementation of LTO Administrative Order No. 2021-039, expect the dealer to process the registration for you.
However, if you have existing e-bikes that need to be registered, you may follow these steps here
