Riding an electric scooter on the road is forbidden in the UK at present. Nor are they allowed on the pavement. The only place they can be ridden is on private land, with the permission of the landowner. Riders currently face a £300 fixed-penalty notice and six points on their driving licence for using e-scooters. 😳
I see these every single day on the cycle route from home to work, at least half a dozen in each direction. Three out of five days there are police officers or PCSOs on the route stopping cyclists busting red lights and riding on the pavement. I have asked on three separate occasions what their views on e-Scooters are and always get the same reply (paraphrased); "Drive like an ass and you're getting stopped, drive respectfully and we won't stop you".

Get one with lights, a brake, speed limited to less than the e-Bike limit and you'll be ready for when they do legalise them. And FFS, "WEAR A HELMET"!
We are one of very few countries that bans these. Yet as someone else said we let 2 tonne vehicles (one of which I drive) pollute our lives. Wth.

The police "service" can claim anything from you, given the right pretext. Live life as though you were free, even if you are not.
As someone else has said about these being illegal the police will only stop you if you are being a Pratt, if you ride it and be careful and thoughtful they will leave you alone. I saw 2 girls riding them the other day and police ignored them and they were in the road riding flatout I think police have better things to do with there time than trying to stop 10000 people riding powered scooters. Thats a war they will never win and there’s more everyday my argument is is that mobility scooters are electric they way a ton and a lot of people ride them with no thought for others using the footpaths many times I’ve been forced into the road by someone coming up behind me pressing the horn for me to move. I know a lot of people will say they are disabled and I agree it’s not that I’m getting at it’s that they are electric vehicles and they don’t need tax and insurance and by me there’s lots of people riding them with nothing wrong just trying to claim disability benefits I know one thing id rather be hit by a scooter than a mobility scooter.
what currency are you charged in?
if people are sensible riding them, then IMO most police will turn a blind eye.

I use mine around my local area instead of the car.
It's just as quick as a car as I can use various shortcuts & the more direct cycling lane routes.
I am also signed up to lime & have used scooters in California, Marsaille, Rome, Germany, etc.
I guess once the 'novelty' wears off, then people do end up riding more responsible.

Government does need to look at them as a viable alternative to get people out of cars.
Personally have a Pro version - ride it on cycle paths / the road around Leicester area, I've had police officers ask for a 'go', never had an issue at all. You do get some funny looks off people when they realise you're an adult riding a Scooter though.

I personally find the 15MPH limit too slow and have to unlock the 19MPH. I'd say if you're going to invest in a scooter, go for the Pro version.

I suppose you would have to enquire with the police about the way this works. They are the ones who have said, in many reports, that points can be applied to licences not yet issued. The record of a criminal offence, such as driving without insurance, is not kept solely by the DVLA.

Oh dear this is total scaremongering people. This guy has used some …Oh dear this is total scaremongering people. This guy has used some newspaper articles to try and support his claim.Let me put you right as your original claim dived straight in without key facts.Firstly “vehicles driven by uninsured drivers.....” this e-scooter cannot be insured for the road. under the road traffic act.


I have posted a link to the government's own advice page many times. Here it is again- LINK. You have misunderstood the insurance aspect. It is true that escooters cannot be insured for the road. That means that you will be riding a vehicle that requires insurance without insurance. The fact that you cannot get insurance for it does not exempt you from having it.

As you seem to have missed or ignored the government's advice page, I reproduce here a few passages:

"The term “powered transporters” covers a variety of novel personal transport devices which are mechanically propelled (propelled by a motor) as well as or instead of being manually propelled. It includes e-scooters, Segways, hoverboards, go-peds (combustion engine-powered kick-scooters), powered unicycles, and u-wheels. This term does not include electrically-assisted pedal cycles (EAPCs), which have their own regulatory framework."

"There is no specially-designed legal regime for powered transporters. This means that they are covered by the same laws and regulations that apply to all motor vehicles. There is case law confirming that powered transporters fall within this definition (see section 8 of this information sheet)."

"For motor vehicles to use public roads lawfully, they must meet a number of different requirements. These include insurance; conformity with technical standards and standards of use; payment of vehicle tax, licensing, and registration; driver testing and licensing; and the use of relevant safety equipment."

"If the user of a powered transporter could meet these requirements, it might in principle be lawful for them to use public roads. However, it is likely that they will find it very difficult to comply with all of these requirements, meaning that it would be a criminal offence to use them on the road."

So, more than "some newspaper articles", which in any case report actual police statements and activities, during which the police have issued fixed penalty notices and seized escooters.

Do you take it into the shop? Or is there a way to lock it outside?

You can buy an electric bicycle for not much more, and have peace of mind about using it. Mine is a small folding "shopper" and I have ridden it to the shops and back on rough rural lanes (15 mile round trip) which is beyond the capability of a scooter.
Illegal - Yes
Chance of being caught / fined / points / confiscated - Miniscule

However, if you hit a pedestrian riding one of these be prepared to get your ass sued for a tonne of cash. No insurance to back you up so you are on your own.

These are definitely part of the future for urban mobility. Regulation will come but not for a while.

I have posted references many times, and apologists such as yourself then complain about the proliferation of my posts. Vehicles driven by uninsured drivers can be seized by the police, and if not reclaimed from them by an qualified driver with insurance for that vehicle within a short period, destroyed. This happens a lot with cars and has happened with escooters. Here is a newspaper article (quote- "If found riding one on roads, pavements or cycle paths, you could be fined £300 or get 6 points on your licence - even if you don't have one. You can also have your vehicle confiscated.") There is a social media post from the police in the article showing a seized escooter on a transport- LINK

I have posted many references to it having actually "happened". Certainly many people are getting away with breaking the law, and may continue to do so until the police, who love motoring offences because they are easy earners, decide to crack down, as they have in the past. If people want to chance it, that is up to them, but they need to know the legal position, and the cheery assurances that they will get away with it by some posters in here do them a dis-service.

Great price OP. Have been on the fence for a long while but at that price - absolute bargain.
Owned and rode one of these for a year or so. If you're thinking of riding in central London, don't bother - the police are confiscating them, and threatening points on your *driving* license.

Retarded but something to be aware of.

As for the product, it's quite heavy and unwieldy so a bit of an arse manhandling it on the train. Not so great up steep hills as its front wheel drive and only 250watts.

That said, it's fantastic for running errands. I used to use mine quite a bit for shopping and commuting.

Just be aware, you do look a bellend - just own it and get on with your life

Well why don’t you take positive action and use one of these instead of your pollution monster !
I'm a cop. We have been given a memo in my force that we are not to enforce the road traffic act on electric scooters in general situations due to the controversy around there use and the positive environmental factors. We have been told to only provide words of advice to people riding them until a decision is made at government level.

At the moment there is no stated case at court so there is no definitive answer to the various legal challenges an individual could make if they were to be prosecuted.

I'd love to have one for my 5 mile commute to work. However, we have to be "beyond reproach" so I'll just have to stick to my electric bike until the government pulls their finger out and makes the scooters legal.

PS I'm in one of the home county's forces, not London. So not sure what The Met or City of London polices policy is on the scooters.

As an officer this would be the last thing I would be looking to enforce. It somebody is riding sensibly then I don't see the problem with somebody riding to work or wherever, one less car on the road and not polluting anybody etc. You can spend 5 minutes in London and watch many cyclists blasting through red lights and riding recklessly (I'm a cyclist and motorcyclist) and you could spend your whole day ticketing if you really wanted to.

At the end of the day there aren't many of us and I wouldn't be wasting my time when there are plenty of real criminals out there causing actual harm to people. This would be the view of 99 percent of officers.

You may come across that one traffic officer though.......
I'm sure there should be an easy solution for riding these legally on roads. Restricting speed to a certain limit for one. If this is not possible,I should say our country is very backward.

I hear they're now stopping people using these by deploying Enforcement Droids to arrest people without insurance and tax.

The laws against murder and theft are also "outdated". If the law is changed to allow escooters, it is likely that any that you buy now will not meet the legal requirements for safety etc. In San Francisco approved design escooters are legal, but you are required to have a driving licence and wear a helmet. Other countries have other rules, in particular about limiting the speed at which these may travel (as we do with electric bicycles).

Road Traffic Act 1988 is a twentieth century law. That is the one requiring you to have a licence, road tax, insurance and so on.

The Highway Act 1835 law is the one that prohibits vehicles from being driven on pedestrian pavements. If there was reason to change that your elected representatives could do so, as they already have done to permit powered wheelchairs and mobility scooters to use pavements, but currently cars, motorcycles, lorries, horse-drawn carriages, scooters, and even bicycles are prohibited from travelling on pavements that are set aside for pedestrian use. There is recent case law of a segway rider being prosecuted under this law: LINK

Case upheld on appeal in 2002- "The High Court considered the use of a ‘City Bug’ electric scooter, and whether its user was bound by the compulsory insurance requirements. It found that it was and that the appellant had been properly convicted of the offence of driving a vehicle without insurance." LINK
I had one from the last deal at ~£280

I've been stopped.....and asked about the scooter by the police officer. We had a good chat - asked what it was like, why I got it, issues etc...really friendly guy.

The only thing he said was "please don't ride it in crowded places", to which I agreed would be silly. He openly said they do not care if you ride on the pavement, as long as you're not zooming around people or being anti social on it. I live in a bit of a rural area, not a city, so it's not like it's densely populated.

Of course, it just depends who you get / location. Yes, it's illegal, but so is doing 31 in a 30 zone. Just be sensible and minimise the probablity you cause an issue.

I use it for a 40 min walk to the train station, for which I often used a car. Modded the firmware so the speed is the same as the pro, not that I've ever felt it's been needed. I prefer better battery to be honest.

Make sure you get on AliExpress and look at all the little things you can buy for it. Absolutely loads of them for very cheap!

Perhaps you’d like to come and educate the six police officers that watched me ride, stop, fold down and pop into Tesco last week.

I haven’t used my diesel car in the last ten days popping around town and I’ve done just over 80 trouble free (and fun) miles since getting it.
Can I ride this on a road whilst flying my DJI Drone, or will I get the fines, points on my driving licence, points on my pilots licence, my vehicle confiscated and my aircraft confiscated and will people think I am awesome like a YouTuber?
