Electric Scooter FAQs

  • Are Electric Scooters legal in the UK?

    As it stands in the UK it is completely legal to buy and own an Electric Scooter for your own personal use. Yet they come under the same UK law as Hoverboards and Electric Bikes, the three are considered powered transporters. This UK law classifies them as illegal to use on pavements, cycle lanes or in any pedestrianised places. This means you should only use your New Electric Scooter on private property.

    However, you can use your E-Scooter on public roads if you register, tax and insure it. Improper use can lead to fines, points on your licence and possibly confiscation of your Scooter.

  • How fast do Electric Scooters go?

    Looking to fulfil your need for speed? If so, then E-Scooters UK might be the new mode of transport for you. Dissimilar to your ordinary bicycles and Scooters, Electric Scooters are powered by an electric motor that can propel you forward at speed. Allowing you to ride along without exerting yourself.

    So, how fast can an Electric Scooter go? With the more top spec models you’re looking at a top speed of 30mph. If it was to exceed that speed, the Scooter would start to require a chair or a foot frame, which then begins to make the Scooter look a lot less Scooter like.

    Yet although some Scooters can reach these speeds, UK laws enforce a speed limit of 15.5mph and with the new London E-Scooter scheme, the UK government have created multiple go slow areas, enforcing a speed limit of 8mph.

  • Do you need a Driver's License for an Electric Scooter?

    Using an Electric Scooter requires a driver's licence with category Q entitlement. This includes any valid UK provisional or full licence.

Whether you’re using your own personal E-Scooter or renting one in the city, it’s important to be aware of the local restrictions regarding motorised transport.

When using your Electric Scooter in less populated areas with no familiarity of rental E-Scooters it’s important to be mindful and considerate of the general public when riding.

  • Where can you rent an Electric Scooter?

Popular sites for rental are most notably Bath, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Corby, Coventry, Higham Ferrers, Kettering, Liverpool, North Devon, Northampton, Oxford, Peterborough, Portsmouth, Rushden, Southampton, Wellingborough and West Bromwich.
