E-scooters and the law

by Ruth, Marlene, and Steve on 10 July, 2021

Currently, in the UK, you can legally buy an e-scooter, but you cannot ride it on a public road, cycle lane or pavement.

The police will advise you on the law and may confiscate your e-scooter, and can penalise you depending on the seriousness of the offence. If caught riding an e-scooter, fines you may receive can include:

  • a Fixed Penalty Notice for no insurance, with a £300 fine and six penalty points
  • a Fixed Penalty Notice for no driving licence, up to £100 fine and three-six penalty points.
