HA NOI (VNS) — More than 40 electric bikes in Ha Noi have received number plates on the first day of registration yesterday.
Statistics from the Ha Noi Traffic Police Department showed that all electric scooters with the necessary papers received their number plates within 30 minutes. Of those, the majority came from Hai Ba Trung District, with 25 vehicles.
Previously, the Ministry of Public Security issued Circular No. 15 on June 1 last year, which regulates the compulsory registration and issuance of number plates for electric bikes and electric motorbikes. The registration must be done between December 6 and June 30 next year.
After June 30 next year, drivers of unregistered vehicles caught in traffic will receive stiff fines, from VND300,000 to 400,000.
There are some two million electric bikes and electric motorbikes in Viet Nam, many thousands of which are in Ha Noi. — VNS
