On the other hand, PAB refers to Personal Assisted Bikes. This refers to electric bikes. Regulations applicable to PAB are currently in force. All PAB are required to be checked and approved by LTA. Those that satisfy LTA regulations will be affixed with a blue seal. More details can be found here
If a seller claims that a PAB is LTA approved, you can verify this by looking out for the blue seal affixed by LTA. Do note that for PMD, there is no seal yet as regulations applicable to PMD are not in force.
