E-scooter trials guidance

16 Jan 2023

The guidance lists over 20 areas where the use of trial e-scooters is taking place, and provides information regarding the type of licence needed to use them, how and where they can be used with a reminder regarding the use of privately owned illegal scooters.

These rules are only for rental e-scooters used as part of trials

The rules for private e-scooters have not changed. It is against the law to use a privately owned e-scooter. If you use an e-scooter illegally:

  • you could face a fine
  • you could get penalty points on your licence
  • the e-scooter could be impounded
