Thinking about buying an e-Scooter?
Please think again.
Privately owned e-Scooters cannot be used in public places like parks and open spaces or on pavements, roads or in shopping areas. They can only be used on private land with the landowners permission.
Your e-scooter questions answered.
Don’t make an expensive mistake. These e-Scooters are treated as motorised vehicles.
Riding an e-Scooter in a public place is illegal. We can seize your e-Scooter and prosecute you for not having insurance, not having a licence (if you don’t have a provisional or full driving licence the points will be added when you apply). Other offences could be taken into account.
If your e-Scooter is seized it will be destroyed.
