The law today...
Yes. They are legal to own, but there are restrictions on how you can use privately-owned scooters.
Privately-owned e-scooters are currently only legal to ride on private land with the landowner’s permission. However, the UK Government recently announced plans to legalise private e-scooter use in public places, in the near future. We’ll keep updating this page with all the latest developments on the journey to full legalisation.
The maximum speed for an e-scooter is 15.5mph. There is currently no limit for privately owned e-scooters, but the Government is expected to update this soon when they reveal new regulations on e-scooter use.
There’s still a way to go before e-scooters are fully legal on UK roads. However, we’re encouraged to see the Government taking steps towards putting clear regulations in place that will make them safe to use on public roads across the UK in the near future.
